The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. AUTOMATIC CONTAMINATION EVALUATOR FOR OPTICAL SURFACES

    SBC: Acton Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    RECENT SHUTTLE FLIGHTS HAVE SHOWN THAT SIGNIFICANT TEMPORARYOR PERMANENT DEGRADATION OF OPTICAL SURFACES CAN OCCUR IN FLIGHT. SEVERAL OSMIUM-COATED SAMPLES, FLOWN ON SHUTTLE FLIGHT STS 5, EXPERIENCED A PERMANENT LOSS OF REFLECTIVITY BY FACTORS OF 2-3 IN THE VACUUM ULTRAVIOLET PORTION OF THE SPECTRUM. OTHER COATING MATERIALS AND WINDOWS CARRIED ABOARD EARLIER SHUTTLE FLIGHTS SUFFERED LESS OR EVEN N ...

  2. THIS STUDY WILL DETERMINE CLOUD PROPERTIES FROM LANDSAT 4 THEMATIC MAPPER (TM) DATA BY COMBINING A SPATIAL COHERENCE APPROACH WITH A VARIETY OF CLOUD PARAMETER RETRIEVAL METHODS.

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THIS STUDY WILL DETERMINE CLOUD PROPERTIES FROM LANDSAT 4 THEMATIC MAPPER (TM) DATA BY COMBINING A SPATIAL COHERENCE APPROACH WITH A VARIETY OF CLOUD PARAMETER RETRIEVAL METHODS. THE TM HAS SEVEN SPECTRAL BANDS WHICH, IN PRINCIPLE, ALLOW CLOUD AMOUNT, HEIGHT, PHASE, AND THICKNESS TO BE RETRIEVED. CLOUD PARTICLE SIZE MAY ALSO BE RETRIEVABLE. THE SPATIAL COHERENCE APPROACH WILL ACCOUNT FOR PARTIAL B ...

  3. RAYLEIGH SCATTERING AS A HIGH TEMPERATURE COMBUSTION DIAGNOSTIC METHOD

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT EVALUATES THE USE OF RAYLEIGH SCATTERING TECHNIQUES FOR USE AS A TEMPERATURE MONITOR IN THE SEVERE ENVIRONMENT OF GAS TURBINES. POTENTIAL ADVANTAGES OF THIS TECHNIQUE OVER ALL OTHER PRESENTLY USED METHODS ARE HIGH ACCURACY (+/-10K), EASE OF INSTALLATION, HIGH SPATIAL AND TEMPORAL RESOLUTION, AND NONINTRUSIVE OPERATION. THIS PHASEOF THE PROGRAM CONSISTS OF DETAILED FEASIBILITY CALCULAT ...

  4. OPTIMAL SILICON CARBIDE PRODUCTION

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    IT IS DESIRABLE TO ENHANCE THE ABILITY TO MAKE HIGH PURITY SILICON CARBIDE CRYSTALS TO BE USED IN MONITORING INSTRUMENTS AND SENSORS FOR USE IN HARSH ENVIRONMENTS. A SIGNIFICANT ADVANCEMENT IN SIC PRODUCTION HAS BEEN MADE AT NASA-LEWIS. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO OPTIMIZE THE NASA-LEWIS PROCESS FOR MAKING SEMICONDUCTOR-QUALITY SILICON CARBIDE CRYSTALS BY BETTER UNDERSTANDING BOTH THE CHEM ...

  5. THIS IS A PROJECT TO ESTABLISH THE FEASIBILITY OF A TECHNIQUE FOR FORMING HOLOGRAMS FOR THREE DIMENSIONAL IMAGES OF COMPUTER-GENERATED OBJECTS IN REAL-TIME POINT BY POINT.

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS IS A PROJECT TO ESTABLISH THE FEASIBILITY OF A TECHNIQUE FOR FORMING HOLOGRAMS FOR THREE DIMENSIONAL IMAGES OF COMPUTER-GENERATED OBJECTS IN REAL-TIME POINT BY POINT. THIS PROPRIETARY TECHNIQUE IS A METHOD FOR QUICKLY MOVING POINTS OF LIGHT THROUGH A THREE-DIMENSIONAL OBJECT VOLUME. THIS NEW METHOD, ALONG WITH THE YOUNG TECHNOLOGY OF REAL-TIME THERMO-PLASTIC RECORDING MATERIALS, WILL OVERCOME ...

  6. AN OPEN PATH DIODE LASER FLUX METER FOR TRACE GASES OF BIOGENIC ORIGIN

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE PURPOSE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DESIGN AND DEVELOP AN INSTRUMENT TO MEASURE FLUXES OF TRACE GASES IN ORDER TO DETERMINE THEIR SOURCES AND SINKS IN THE BIOSPHERE. THE METHOD IS BASED ON THE WELL ESTABLISHED EDDY CORRELATION TECHNIQUE AND WOULD USE A TUNABLE DIODE LASER SOURCE COMBINED WITH A UNIQUE OPEN PATH MULTIPLE PASS ABSORPTION CELL FOR TRACE SPECIES DETECTION AT SUB-PPB LEVELS. THIS INSTRUM ...

  8. OPTIMAL SILICON CARBIDE PRODUCTION

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1984 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  9. SOFT X-RAY WINDOW ENCAPSULENT FOR MERCURIC IODIDE DETECTORS

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    FOR MANY YEARS MERCURIC IODIDE HAS APPEARED TO BE AN IDEAL MATERIAL FOR USE AS AN UNCOOLED X-RAY AND GAMMA-RAY DETECTOR. IT HAS DEMONSTRATED EXCEPTIONAL ENERGY RESOLUTIONFOR LOW ENERGY X-RAYS AND HAS BEEN CONSIDERED FOR SEVERAL NASA SPACE MISSIONS. HOWEVER, MERCURIC IODIDE DETECTORS HAVE BEEN PLAGUED BY SEVERE INSTABILITY PROBLEMS RELATED TO THE CHEMICAL AND PHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF THE MERCURIC IOD ...

  10. PORTABLE NUCLEAR VENTRICULAR EJECTION FRACTION MONITOR

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    AN IMPORTANT GOAL OF THE NASA MEDICAL SCIENCES PROGRAM IS TO MAINTAIN THE HEALTH OF THE ASTRONAUTS BOTH BEFORE AND DURING THE SPACE MISSIONS. TWO OF THE MOST IMPORTANT CLINICAL PARAMETERS ARE THE LEFT AND RIGHT HEART EJECTION FRACTIONS. THESE PARAMETERS, WHICH ARE SO CENTRAL TO GOOD VASCULAR PERFORMANCE ARE ALSO ONES WHICH COULD BE STRONGLY EFFECTED BY THE STRESS AND GRAVITY EFFECTS OF THE FLIGHTS ...
