  1. Optical Line Filter and Spectrometer based Upon Two-Photon Absorption for Doppler LIDAR at 1.053 um

    SBC: ESPYLUX LLC            Topic: S1

    A receiver system for use in LIDAR consisting of an optical filter and optical spectrometer based upon two-photon absorption is proposed.  The filter and spectrometer both use dispersion from excited state transitions of atomic rubidium  to create a birefringent medium. The birefringent medium of the optical filter rotates the polarization of light so that it is transmitted through cross ...

  2. Water-washout tooling for improved high- to very-high-temperature manufacturing of SM-3 TSRM composite motor cases

    SBC: Nevada Composites, Inc.            Topic: MDA14002

    Nevada Composites has developed Green-AeroSM tooling, lightweight ceramic tooling that is stable under high pressure and long-duration cure cycles and can be washed out with water after cures to the highest resin-matrix-composite cure temperatures. The proposed Phase II program would build on the successful work in Phase I toward creation of a washout mandrel for the upper stage rocket motor of a ...

  3. Fail-Safe, Controllable Liquid Spring/Damper System for Improved Rover Space Vehicle Mobility

    SBC: Advanced Materials and Devices            Topic: H601

    NASA is planning to return to the moon in 2020 to explore thousands of miles of the moon?s surface with individual missions, lasting six months or longer. Surface mobility is critical to outpost buildup and exploration activities, where the change in the vehicle weight between unloaded and loaded cargo conditions and travel over rough terrain can adversely affect the ride handling conditions and ...

  4. Structural Reactive Polymeric Materials

    SBC: Tetramer Technologies,L.L.C.            Topic: MDA15004

    Missiles produced with reactive materials can add chemical energy to the kinetic energy generated on impact with a target. Thus, reactive materials have potential to serve as structural components resulting in possible increase lethality without a weight impact. In Phase I, Tetramer will demonstrate a new material system with significantly stronger mechanical properties and excellent reactive prop ...

  5. Green Electric Monopropellant (GEM) Fueled Pulsed Plasma Thruster

    SBC: Digital Solid State Propulsion, Inc            Topic: S302

    Digital Solid State Propulsion is proposing the development of a new liquid Pulsed Plasma Thruster (PPT) using its revolutionary HAN-based Green Electric Monopropellant (GEM) to enable spacecraft missions whose fulfillment requires the high specific impulse of conventional Telfon-fueled PPTs, but would like the flexibility in mission design that liquid fueled systems allow. DSSP's GEM propellant i ...

  6. Fabrication of T-SOFC via Freeze Cast Methods for Space and Portable Applications

    SBC: Yanhai Power LLC            Topic: H801

    As NASA space missions become longer in duration the need for high efficiency power generator sets that can operate on NASA logistical fuel become critical. Historically NASA has used fuel cells as part of the energy solution. Space bound energy and power systems require rapid start and stop cycle times as well as high power densities. The high operational efficiency, coupled with the use of logi ...

  7. A Green, Safe, Multi-Pulse Solid Motor (MPM) for CubeSats

    SBC: Digital Solid State Propulsion, Inc            Topic: S302

    Today's CubeSats lack storable, green, safe propulsion options for complex science missions that may involve large Delta-V changes, proximity operations, and attitude control systems (ACS) for pointing, spin-up, and spin-down. Digital Solid State Propulsion (DSSP) is developing propulsion for CubeSats and will leverage existing research efforts into a new system for NASA. A key technology identifi ...

  8. Green Catalyst-free Electric Monopropellant (GEM) for Insensitive Munitions (IM) Compliance

    SBC: Digital Solid State Propulsion, Inc            Topic: MDA13032

    Continuously advancing ballistic missile threats require an interceptor missile system which has greater basing flexibility and highly advanced performance in terms of burnout velocity and Divert and Attitude Control (DACS). Liquid systems are the ideal candidate to fit this role because of higher performance than solids; however, they tend to be a significant safety risk due to toxicity, corrosi ...

  9. Water-washout tooling for improved high- to very-high-temperature manufacturing of composite motor cases

    SBC: Nevada Composites, Inc.            Topic: MDA14002

    Nevada Composites has developed Green-AeroSM toolinglightweight ceramic tooling that is stable under high pressure and long-duration cure cycles and can be washed out with water after cures. Tools have a composite-compatible Coefficient of Thermal Expansion (CTE), provide tight tolerances, are free-standing, and are of affordable cost. For BMDS applications Green-AeroSM offers both improved per ...
