  1. A low cost, secure radio communications system for UAVs

    SBC: SCI_ZONE, INC.            Topic: A202

    sci_Zone, Inc is seeking to develop the LinkStar-AV, an inexpensive, secure, and reliable satellite based radio system for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS). The LinkStar-AV architecture treats the radio system as a secure node on the internet through the GlobalStar satellite communications network, providing continuous coverage between the UAS and ground. Control and monitoring is provided by an ...

  2. A Multi-Wavelength Seed Derived Laser for In-Situ Validation of Airborne Remote Sensing Instruments

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: S107

    This Phase I SBIR will establish the feasibility of developing a collinear three wavelength source for an in-situ, 1800, back scatter nephelometer. The three wavelength source is being developed to facilitate on-board validation measurements of airborne remote backscatter lidar. Currently, commercial nephelometers utilized for in-situ validation measurements employ wavelengths that are both not ...

  3. Compact, Rugged and Low-Cost Atmospheric Ozone DIAL Transmitter

    SBC: Bridger Photonics, Inc.            Topic: S101

    Bridger Photonics Inc. (Bridger) proposes developing the most efficient, compact, rugged, low-power consumption and cost-effective UV ozone differential absorption lidar (DIAL) transmitter available. Bridger will demonstrate pulse energies above 0.5 mJ with a goal of 1 mJ/pulse with a pulse repetition frequency of 1 kHz. The proposed transmitter will enable widespread deployment of ozone DIAL s ...

  4. Contact Stress Design Parameters for Titanium Bearings

    SBC: AIR-LOCK, INCORPORATED            Topic: H402

    In response to NASA 2015 SBIR Topic H4.02, Air-Lock proposes to define the maximum allowable contact stress for Titanium bearings. The modulus of Titanium is lower than legacy spacesuit bearing materials (Stainless Steel). Due to this, Titanium bearings are more susceptible to deflection under man and plug load scenarios. Bearing deflection causes a limited number of balls to absorb the full load ...

  5. Diagnosis-Driven Prognosis for Decision Making

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: A104

    In Phase II, the QSI-Vanderbilt team seeks to develop a system-level diagnostics and prognostic process that incorporates a "sense and respond capability," which first uses error codes and discrete sensor values to correctly diagnose the system health including degradations and failures of sensors and components, and then invokes appropriate prognostics routines for the assessment of RUL and perfo ...

  6. Digital Acquisition and Wavelength Control of Seed Laser for Space-Based LIDAR Applications

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: S101

    This SBIR Phase II proposes the development and delivery of a compact, space qualifiable, diode-based seed laser system that utilizes a digital controller to allow autonomous acquisition of lock to the required wavelength in remote environments for multi-wavelength flight and space-based lidar applications. Successful development of this technology, due to its compact, efficient, and reliable des ...

  7. E VA Space Suit Power, Avionics, and Software Systems

    SBC: Cybernet Systems Corporation            Topic: H403

    NASA is interested in a reliable, robust, and low Size Weight and Power (SWAP) input device that will allow for EVA astronauts to navigate display menu systems. The resulting input device should provide mouse-like functionality and need minimal hand use. Cybernet proposes a solution that does not require any hand or glove control. Instead, we propose an input device that uses purposes eye-blinks, ...

  8. Efficient, High Power Density Hydrocarbon-Fueled Solid Oxide Stack System

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: H802

    Precision Combustion, Inc. (PCI) proposes to develop and demonstrate an innovative high power density design for direct internal reforming of regolith off-gases (e.g., methane and high hydrocarbons) within a solid oxide stack. The resulting enhanced heat transfer design offers the potential for higher overall efficiency, simplifies the system, and enables further compactness and weight reduction o ...

    SBIR Phase I 2015 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  9. eVADE: Volcanic Ash Detection Raman LIDAR

    SBC: Michigan Aerospace Corporation            Topic: S107

    Volcanic ash is a significant hazard to aircraft engine and electronics and has caused damage to unwary aircraft and disrupted air travel for thousands of travelers, costing millions of dollars. Michigan Aerospace Corporation (MAC) proposes to demonstrate the concept feasibility of a Raman Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) system to obtain real-time information from volcanic ash clouds and other ...

    SBIR Phase I 2015 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  10. Fault Management Technologies

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: S505

    There has been a renewed push across NASA centers and programs to make Systems Engineering & Integration (SE&I) processes more efficient and results-oriented than the current cumbersome and expensive cross-checking processes using text documents, and transition to a repeatable and a cost-effective process of Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE). In parallel, Systems Health management (SHM), with ...
