  1. Plume Diagnostics for Combustion Stability

    SBC: SIERRA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: T901

    Sierra Engineering Inc. and Purdue University propose to develop a non-intrusive plume instrument capable of detecting and diagnosing combustion instability. This Stability Diagnostic System (SDS) will be designed, assembled, and tested during this effort. The SDS will include a high-speed video camera and multiple photodiode detectors for observing the plume. It will also include a software pa ...

  2. Flexible Transpiration Cooled Thermal Protection System for Inflatable Atmospheric Capture and Entry Systems

    SBC: ANDREWS SPACE, INC.            Topic: X704

    Andrews Space, Inc. proposes an innovative transpiration cooled aerobrake TPS design that is thermally protective, structurally flexible, and lightweight. This innovative design will meet launch volume constraints and satisfy terminal aerobraking requirements. The approach will focus on transpiration cooling of a flexible material and employs preceramic polymers and active filler technologies as ...

  3. Ultra High Brightness/Low Cost Fiber Coupled Packaging

    SBC: nLight Photonics            Topic: S602

    High peak power, high efficiency, high reliability lightweight, low cost QCW laser diode pump modules with up to 1000W of QCW output become possible with nLight's new laser diode package methodology. Following the design principles from our Phase I results, we propose an innovative packaging architecture to provide NASA with highly reliable 808nm laser diode pump sources for space based LADAR sys ...

  4. Rigidized Deployable Lifting Brake for Atmospheric Entry

    SBC: ANDREWS SPACE, INC.            Topic: S704

    Aerobraking to reduce velocity for planetary capture and landing has long been assumed for use on Mars missions because Mars has an atmosphere, and the use of aerobraking minimizes the amount of propellants required from the Earth's surface. For Mars exploration missions, where large quantities of equipment will be required, an aerobrake that is adequate for the size and amount of equipment will n ...

  5. Compact All Solid State Oceanic Inherent Optical Property Sensor

    SBC: SEQUOIA SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: S603

    Light propagation in the sea and the consequent remote sensing signals seen by aircraft and spacecraft is fundamentally governed by the inherent optical properties (IOP) of the water, which is known to vary in all 4 dimensions, i.e. space and time. No versatile, non-moving full 0-pi volume scattering function sensing system exists at this time, although this company has developed an all solid stat ...

  6. High-Power, High-Efficiency 1.907nm Diode Lasers

    SBC: nLight Photonics            Topic: S602

    nLight developed high-power, high-efficiency laser diodes emitting at 1907nm for the pumping of solid-state lasers during the Phase I. The innovation brought to bear at 19-xxnm wavelengths nLight's design knowledge and experience from its highly successful 9xx-nm and 14xx-nm, high-efficiency and high-power laser diode programs. The expected performance for the laser at the conclusion of the phase ...

  7. Graphical User Interface for High Energy Multi-Particle Transport

    SBC: Visual Editor Consultants            Topic: X1101

    Computer codes such as MCNPX now have the capability to transport most high energy particle types (34 particle types now supported in MCNPX) with energies extending into the teravolt energy range. The efficient use of these types of Monte Carlo tools is very important for modeling the effects of space radiation on humans, spacecraft and equipment. This proposal would develop a graphical user inter ...

  8. Transonic Stability Test of Variable Drag Ballute

    SBC: ANDREWS SPACE, INC.            Topic: A702

    Low cost, reliable atmospheric entry technology is needed to support NASA cargo recovery from the ISS, earth return of small payloads, planetary aerocapture, and planetary probe missions. Fixed aeroshields and winged structures are well proven, but are not appropriate for many missions due to envelope, weight, and cost constraints. Inflatable ballute technology offers a low weight, cost effectiv ...

  9. High Resolution Multispectral Flow Imaging of Cells with Extended Depth of Field

    SBC: Amnis Corporation            Topic: B202

    Proposed is the development the extended depth of field (EDF) or confocal like imaging capabilities of a breakthrough multispectral high resolution imaging flow cytometer. This platform shall have unparalleled cellular analysis capabilities intended to further biological space research (fundamental, micro-gravity and radiation biology) and the potential capability of monitoring astronaut health. ...

  10. Active Gas Regenerative Liquefier

    SBC: CryoFuel Systems, Inc.            Topic: F302

    We offer a novel liquefier that has the potential to simultaneously increase thermodynamic efficiency and significantly reduce complexity. The ?active gas regenerative liquefier? (AGRL) uses an array of discrete micro compressor-expander units in a periodic heat exchanger to accomplish extremely efficient liquefaction of hydrogen and other cryogenic fluids. When an array of these units are comb ...
