  1. Extreme Environment Circuit Blocks for Spacecraft Power & Propulsion System & Other High Reliability Applications


    Chronos Technology (DIv of FMI, Inc.) proposes to design, fabricate, and deliver a performance proven, and commercially available set of extreme high operating temperature PWM controller and circuit blocks (EXTEC1). These rad-hard (TID, SEU, ELDERS) components are intended to be used in a variety of spacecraft power and propulsion systems (PPU) along with smart power sub-assemblies for a wide rang ...

  2. Low Power Digital Correlator System for PATH Mission

    SBC: PACIFIC MICROCHIP CORP.            Topic: S2001

    The NASA's PATH mission employs GeoSTAR spectral radiometer processing data from antenna consisting of three arms, each holding 128 microwave receivers. Each of the 384 receivers amplifies RF signals, and down-converts them to an intermediate frequency (IF). As a result, 768 in-phase (I) and quadrature (Q) signals are produced with a frequency of 10 to 500MHz. The IF signals have to be normalized ...

  3. Solid state deep UV laser for Raman detection of CB agents

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: CBD11105

    Raman spectroscopy is well suited for detecting trace surface contaminants that may indicate the presence of explosives, harmful chemical or biological agents, illicit drugs, or specific combinations of indicator chemicals used in processing nuclear materials. An example mobile Raman spectroscopy system is the vehicle mounted Joint Contaminated Surface Detector (JCSD), which uses a gaseous KrF exc ...

  4. Low Cost, Cosmic Microwave Background Telescopes (P-NASA12-003-1)


    Existing and proposed missions with ambitious science goals demand ever larger primary mirrors which, in turn, require the development of new light-weight, low-cost mirror technologies. For Phase 2, Vanguard Space Technologies (VST) proposes to deliver a 2.5 meter, composite, on-axis, telescope by building upon the success of the Phase I effort. The telescope will be suitable for use on the Supe ...

  5. Pneubotics- Membrane-Based Robotics for Remote Material Handling

    SBC: Other Lab Inc.            Topic: H2001

    We have invented a new class of robotics, called `Pneubotics', that rival current manipulators in payload and reach at 1/10th the weight. Our technology leverages insights into lightweight materials and mass manufacturing to create robots that derive power, structure, and movement from pressurized air. As a result, drive trains, motors, bearings, shafts, sliding surfaces, and excess structural mat ...

  6. Big Data Driven Architecture for Real Time Systemwide Safety Assurance Phase II

    SBC: ATAC            Topic: A303

    Our proposed research work significantly enhances the state-of-the-art in aviation data analytics by providing, for the first time, a one-stop resource for meeting data analysis needs of aviation researchers, analysts and practitioners. The resulting Cloud-based Aviation Big Data Analytics Platform benefits multiple NASA projects: RSSA real-time safety assessment, SMARTNAS test-bed, and the Sherl ...

  7. Innovation in the Sky

    SBC: Higher Ground LLC            Topic: A302

    This Phase II proposal presents a scope of work to develop reliable Sense and Avoid for BVLOS Unmanned Aerial Vehicle [UAV] operations. We first analyze a) the requirement for avoidance based on the UAV's ability to get away from danger and b) the suite of candidate technologies needed to detect intruders with ample time to get away. To meet this need we will build a reliable FINE TRACKING sen ...

  8. Heat Shield Recession Measurements Using Remote Spectral Sensors

    SBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: H701

    OKSI proposes a minimally invasive in-flight diagnostic to measure heat shield recession during flight tests. These measurements can be used to validate models and ultimately optimize heat shield design to reduce weight while maintaining sufficient safety margins. The concept has two components: 1) specially designed heat shield plugs and 2) a remote spectral sensor.

  9. A high performance, electric pump-fed LOX / RP propulsion system

    SBC: Astra Space, Inc.            Topic: E102

    To-date, the realization of small-scale, high-performance liquid bipropellant rocket engines has largely been limited by the inability to operate at high chamber pressures in a regeneratively-cooled environment using on-board pumps for propellant pressurization. Ventions seeks to fulfill this critical need by using a novel fabrication scheme that builds on previously-demonstrated technologies (u ...

  10. Ultra-Compact Optical Spectrometer for Organic Mapping, uCOSOM (microcosm)

    SBC: Photon Systems, Inc.            Topic: S109

    We propose to develop a soda-can-size, 500 g, 400 mW instrument for mounting on small lander or rover arms: the ultra-Compact Optical Spectrometer for Organic Mapping (uCOSOM) instrument. Two core technologies enable the proposed instrument: a narrow linewidth deep UV laser and a new uncooled, resistive gate linear DUV CCD array detector with high quantum efficiency in the DUV with fast read rate ...
