  1. A BIOREACTOR FOR SCRENNING AND PRODUCTION OF HIGH VALUE SECONDARY PLANT METABOLITES

    SBC: Phytoresource Research Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE BIOCHEMICAL AND SYNTHETIC CAPACITY OF HIGHER PLANTS, AS SHOWN BY THEIR NATURAL CONTENT OF SUBSTANCES, HAS BEEN USED FOR CENTURIES IN SUPPLYING MATERIALS IMPORTANT IN PHARMACOLOGY AND IN FLAVORS AND FRAGRANCES. MANY OF THESE SECONDARY PRODUCTS ARE IN SHORT SUPPLY AND AN ENORMOUS EFFORT HAS TO BE EXTENDED TO GET THEM. ATTEMPTS TO USE CELL CULTURES OF HIGHER PLANTS AS A MEANS OF PRODUCING SECONDA ...

  2. A MESOSCALE NUMERICAL WEATHER FORECAST SYSTEM FOR USE IN SHUTTLE OPERATIONS

    SBC: MESOSCALE ENVIRONMENTAL SIMULATIONS AND OPERATIONS, INC            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED INNOVATION SYNTHESIZES THREE HIGH TECHNOLOGY TOOLS IN AN EFFORT TO DEVELOP A RELIABLE NUMERICAL MESOSCALEWEATHER FORECAST SYSTEM FOR USE AT THE KENNEDY SPACE CENTER FOR SHUTTLE LAUNCH AND LANDING OPERATIONS. THESE TOOLS ARE:(1) AN ADVANCED MESOSCALE NUMERICAL WEATHER PREDICTION MODEL, I.E., THE MESOSCALE ATMOSPHERIC SIMULATION SYSTEM (MASS), (2) THE CRAY-2 SUPERCOMPUTER SYSTEM, AND (3 ...

  3. A METHOD FOR OPTIMIZING ATMOSPHERES FOR SPACE LIFE SUPPORT SYSTEMS

    SBC: Phytoresource Research Inc            Topic: N/A

    IT IS GENERALLY ACCEPTED THAT HIGHER PLANTS WILL SERVE AS IMPORTANT COMPONENTS OF ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONING AND FOOD PRODUCTION SYSTEMS FOR FUTURE SPACE OR PLANETARY SURFACE HABITATS. BECAUSE OF STRUCTURAL CONSIDERATIONS IT IS LIKELY THAT ATMOSPHERIC COMPOSITION AND PRESSURE WILL BE RADICALLY DIFFERENT. IN DEFINING GROWTH SYSTEMS FOR ALTEREDATMOSPHERES WE MUST UNDERSTAND HOW PLANTS OPERATE IN GEN ...

  4. ADAPTIVE COMPUTATIONAL METHOD FOR FLUID-STRUCTURE INTERACTION IN INTERNAL FLOWS

    SBC: Computational Mechan            Topic: N/A

    SUPER ACCURATE ADAPTIVE COMPUTATIONAL SCHEMES FOR THE ANALYSIS OF FLUID STRUCTURE INTERACTION AND COMPLEX THREE-DIMENSIONAL INTERNAL FLOWS ARE TO BE DEVELOPED. NEW PETROV-GALERKIN FINITE ELEMENT METHODS FOR SOLVING THE NAVIER-STOKES EQUATIONS. COUPLED WITH THE EQUATIONS OF MOTION OF ELASTIC DUCTS AND MANIFOLDS, ARE TO BE DEVELOPED AND USED TO SIMULATE FLOWS IN AEROSPACE PROPULSION SYSTEMS (SUCH AS ...

  5. ADVANCED HELIUM NAGNETOMETERS FOR SPACE APPLICATIONS

    SBC: POLATOMIC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE GOAL OF PHASE I IS DEVELOPMENT OF AN ADVANCED OPTICALLY PUMPED HELIUM MAGNETOMETER CONCEPT. THIS INSTRUMENT WILL MEASURE MAGNETIC FIELDS IN THE 1 TO 10-8 GAUSS RANGE WITH ORDER OF MAGNITUDE IMPROVEMENTS IN SENSITIVITY AND ABSOLUTE ACCURACY OVER EXISTING MAGNETOMETERS. OPTICALLY PUMPED HELIUM ISOTOPES CAN BE OPTICALLY PUMPED AND USED AS MAGNETOMETERS IN THE FOLLOWING THREE MODES: (1) VECTOR MOD ...

  6. AIRFLOW MONITOR AND STALL WARNING DEVICE

    SBC: Maris Worden Aerospace Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1987 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  7. AN IMPROVED STRESS ANALYSIS OF AN ASCENDING BALLOON

    SBC: Winzen Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS RESEARCH ATTEMPTS TO ADVANCE THE STATE-OF-THE-ART OF BALLOON DESIGN BY DEVELOPING A METHOD TO REALISTICALLY APPROXIMATE THE STRESS LEVELS IN AN ASCENDING BALLOON. THE APPROACH WILL BE TO COMBINE EXISTING STUDIES ON ASCENT SHAPES, MATERIAL PROPERTIES, AND HEAT TRANSFER MECHANISMS TO PRODUCE A FIRST ORDER ESTIMATE OF STRESSES IN THE WALL OF A BALLOON WITH EITHER INTERNAL OR EXTERNAL CAPS. THE F ...

    SBIR Phase I 1987 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  8. ANALYSIS OF FLOWFIELDS AROUND HYPERVELOCITY VEHICLES IN LOW-TO-HIGH DENSITY FLIGHT REGIME

    SBC: VIGYAN, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE HYPERSONIC VEHICLES FLYING AT HIGH ALTITUDES OPERATE IN A FLOW REGIME WHERE THE NONCONTINUUM EFFECTS NEAR THE SURFACE AND FINITE SHOCK THICKNESS DUE TO LOW DENSITY MAKE THE CONVENTIONAL CONTINUUM TECHNIQUES GROSSLY INADEQUATE. CHEMICAL NONEQUILIBRIUM IS ALSO IMPORTANT UNDER THE LOW-DENSITY FLOW CONDITIONS. UNTIL RECENTLY NOT MUCH WORK HAS BEEN DONE TO EVALUATE DEFICIENCIES OF THE EXISTING CONT ...

    SBIR Phase I 1987 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  9. AUTOMATION OF REQUIREMENTS DEVELOPMENT UTILIZING A DESK TOP COMPUTER

    SBC: Bruce G. Jackson & Assocs.            Topic: N/A

    NASA IS CONTINUALLY DEVELOPING NEW SYSTEMS RANGING FROM COMPUTER SOFTWARE TO TEST FACILITIES TO LARGE SPACECRAFT. EACH SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT IS INITIATED AND CONTROLLED THROUGH THE USE OF REQUIREMENTS SPECIFICATIONS. THE PROPOSED STUDY WILL DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING AN AUTOMATED TECHNICAL DOCUMENTATION SYSTEM FOR A DESK TOP COMPUTER. THE SYSTEM WILL BE PROTOTYPED TO DEVELOP AND TEST CON ...

    SBIR Phase I 1987 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  10. COBALT-DOPED MAGNESIUM FLUORIDE LASER FOR REMOTE SENSING

    SBC: Schwartz Electro-Optics, Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE MAJOR PORTION OF THE EFFORT WILL BE TO DEVELOP A CO:MGF2 LASER SYSTEM SUITABLE FOR USE IN POSSIBLE NASA MISSIONS. MOST OF THE WORK ON CO:MGF2 LASERS HAS INVOLVED THE USE OF LIQUID NITROGEN FOR COOLING OF THE CRYSTAL, A MAJOR INCONVENIENCE FOR PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS. THE PROPOSED RESEARCH WOULD, BY A COMBINATION OF THEORETICAL ANDEXPERIMENTAL WORK, INVESTIGATE OPERATION OF THE CO:MGF2 LASER AT ...
