  1. Atmospheric Lidar with Cross-Track Scanning

    SBC: LITESPAR, INC.            Topic: E301

    An eye-safe, multispectral cross-track scan subsystem with a large receiver aperture and a narrow FOV is proposed for the NASA Cloud Physics Lidar (CPL) to increase the horizontal scan area coverage. The /-14 degree cross-track scan capability will cover /- 5 km from nadir at a 20 km altitude. The cross-track scanner uses a bidirectional scan pattern, which collects 10,000 data points per cross ...

  3. Development of Solid-state Optical Cooler Materials to Replace Conventional Cryocoolers Used for Cooling SWIR and LWIR Infrared Detectors and Focal-plane-arrays

    SBC: NP Photonics, Inc.            Topic: CBD171001

    Electro-optical infrared and long wavelength infrared detectors and sensors are increasingly important for the Chemical/Biological Defensecommunity. Solid-state optical cooler materials are in demand for replacing mechanical closed cycle coolers used in current LWIR standoffsensors to achieve cryogenic temperatures. Recent advances in optical cooling of rare-earth doped materials are pointing towa ...

  4. Regenerable, heat-Abating, humidity-Neutralizing, Carbon diOxide Removal System (RANCOR) Phase II

    SBC: Paragon Space Development Corporation            Topic: CBD12106

    In Phase I RANCOR successfully demonstrated an innovative enabling humidity control technology to provide very low humidity air to water sensitive, fully reusable CO2 adsorbents. The use of adsorbents enables complete reusability/rechargability and reduces the total heat load on the SCBA to the point where ice or other cooling systems will no longer be required. In Phase II Paragon will introduce ...

  5. ANSIBLE: A Network of Social Interactions for Bilateral Life Enhancement

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: H1203

    Studies in ground-based analogs of Isolated and Confined Environments (ICE) have identified sensory monotony and social isolation as threats to crew psychological well-being. Further, the lack of real-time communications in future missions will impact crew interactions with their support systems, i.e. family, friends, and colleagues, are critical. ANSIBLE (A Network of Social Interactions for Bi ...

  6. Tunable Single Frequency 2.05 Micron Fiber Laser Using New Ho-Doped Fiber

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: S101

    In this proposal, we propose to demonstrate and build a widely tunable, narrow linewidth, single frequency fiber laser near 2.05 micron by developing an innovative Ho-doped single mode fiber. Such near 2.05 micron fiber laser is needed for coherent lidar and interferometric fiber sensing. Based on our successful demonstration in Phase I, our newly developed Ho-doped fibers have the capability of s ...

  8. Ultrastable and Compact Deep UV Laser Source for Raman Spectroscopy

    SBC: TIPD, LLC            Topic: T801

    Deep-ultraviolet (DUV) Raman spectroscopy is a powerful method to isolate and extract the unique signatures of numerous chemical bonds present within complex samples. DUV (λ < 250 nm) excitation is critical for NASA missions because it shows an over 200-fold greater efficiency compared to commonly used 785 nm excitation and illumination as such short wavelengths minimizes the fluorescence bac ...

  9. Carbon Based Nano-Additives for Chemically and Biologically Protective Polymeric Nanocomposites

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: CBD03304

    The development of carbon-based nano-additive bound polymers with enhanced adsorption capacity and reactivity for the neutralization of chemical and biological warfare agents could cause substantial saving of life during CBWA threats. In the Phase I pr

  10. Innovative Structural and Material Concepts for Low-Weight Low-Drag Aircraft Design

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: A301

    The overall technical objective of this multi-phase project is to develop and validate a so-called 'AAW-Process' that consists of (i) the Active Aeroelastic Wing (AAW) technology of employing multiple control surfaces in tandem for achieving loads alleviation and drag minimization using the over-determined trim capability of ZONA Euler Unsteady Solver (ZEUS), and (ii) the aeroelastic tailoring tec ...
