  1. 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. 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 ...

  5. Advanced Structural Health Monitoring

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: T12

    Frequency selective surfaces (FSSs) are periodic arrays of conductive elements/patches that cause a particular reflection response when illuminated with high frequency electromagnetic energy. nbsp;These arrays arenbsp;used for high frequency filters and in antenna applications.nbsp; We propose to use FSSs as multi-functional sensors. nbsp;FSS sensors are unpowered, low-profile (thin), wireless and ...

  6. A High Speed Tunable Etalon for LIDAR

    SBC: COMPUTATIONAL PHYSICS, INC.            Topic: S1

    A solid state yet rapidly tunable etalon based on liquid crystal (LC) etalon technology is constructed using minimized LC birefringence response time in an optimized electric field. The key technological innovation is the use of liquid crystal to tune the etalon.nbsp;nbsp;While this type of etalon has been in use for many years, a development effort is undertaken to reduce the time it takes to tun ...

  7. Auralization of Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) in Urban Environments

    SBC: Great Lakes Sound & Vibration, Inc.            Topic: A1

    GLSV proposes building a fully featured NASA Auralization Framework (NAF) plug-in which uses acoustic ray tracing techniques in order to fill this need.nbsp; GLSV has determined that acoustic ray tracing is the best choice for a technology which can provide a reasonable fidelity model which can be solved over length scales seen in urban environments.The proposed software is in response to NASArsqu ...

  9. Broadband Vector Vortices for High Contrast Coronagraphy

    SBC: Beam Engineering For Advanced Measurements Co.            Topic: S2

    The requirement of detecting nearly ten orders of magnitude smaller signal of a planet compared to the nearby star puts forward extreme challenges for coronagraphs designed for exoplanet imaging. Vector vortex waveplates (VWs) appear to be capable of providing best performance compared to other mask technologies due to their structure as thin film coatings of continuous texture that minimizes ligh ...
