  1. Ground-Based Water Vapor Profiling Lidar

    SBC: Bennett Aerospace, Inc.            Topic: 832

    The vertical water vapor profile into the atmosphere is measured around the world using balloon-borne radiosondes that take measurements twice a day when the balloons are launched.  The objective of this proposal is to establish the feasibility of measuring the amount of water vapor vertically, in the atmosphere as a function of altitude using a Light Detection and Ranging (lidar) operating i ...

  2. Cryogenic Rotary Piezoelectric Motor

    SBC: DYNAMIC STRUCTURES AND MATERIALS, LLC            Topic: X602

    Piezoelectric motors operate on the principal of converting the high-frequency oscillation of high-force, precision ceramic elements into useful continuous motion. High-power oscillations are converted to rotary motion through novel transmission mechanisms to produce high-torque, precision motion. Dynamic Structures and Materials (DSM) focused the Phase I innovation on the development and design ...

  3. Behavior Tracking Software Enhancement and Integration of a Feedback Module

    SBC: HORIZON PERFORMANCE L.L.C.            Topic: X1101

    This Company is proposing to adapt a behavioral tracking program and feedback module specifically developed for the U.S. Army Special Forces for NASA human space exploration. To achieve this, this Company has developed a plan to identify the specific technical requirements needed to modify the software to properly operate with the NASA space program. This will include ensuring the software is un ...

  4. Novel Lightweight Magnets for Space Applications

    SBC: Tai-Yang Research Company            Topic: S107

    The Tai-Yang Research Company (TYRC) of Tallahassee, Florida, will design, build and test a superconducting magnet system optimized for low current space based applications. Adiabatic demagnetization refrigeration (ADR) for milli-Kelvin sensor cooling is enabled by the use of superconducting magnets to eliminate ohmic heating. Present systems use low temperature superconductors and require signi ...

  5. Hybrid High-Temperature Superconductor Current Leads for Space Applications

    SBC: Tai-Yang Research Company            Topic: S107

    The Tai-Yang Research Company (TYRC) of Tallahassee, Florida proposes to build hybrid high-temperature superconducting current leads for space applications, including compact adiabatic demagnetization refrigeration (ADR) systems for sensor cooling. The current leads will be configured to meet NASA mission requirements for a low heat leak in a package optimized for electrical currents up to 10 A. ...

  6. Carbon Foam Self-Heated Tooling for Out-of-Autoclave Composites Manufacturing

    SBC: TOUCHSTONE RESEARCH LABORATORY LTD (INC)            Topic: X406

    This proposal addresses NASA's need for non-autoclave composites manufacture. The Constellation program, including the Ares V launch vehicle, will require very large-scale structures and conventional autoclave-based composites which are very costly and suffer from logistical problems. Out of autoclave (OOA) composite manufacturing technology has the potential to solve the constraint issues of aut ...

  7. Electronic Procedures for Medical Operations

    SBC: S&K Aerospace            Topic: O301

    Electronic procedures are currently being used to document the steps in performing medical operations for the Space Shuttle and/or the International Space Station (ISS). Capturing the data electronically makes is easier to manage, modify and query the contents of the procedures. For the ISS, NASA is currently transitioning to electronic procedures based on the eXtensible Markup Language (XML) stan ...

  8. Procedure Integrated Development Environment (PRIDE)

    SBC: S&K Aerospace            Topic: X101

    NASA captures and distributes operational knowledge in the form of procedures. These procedures are created and accessed by a range of people performing many different jobs. These people have different needs for procedure data and different ways of interacting with procedures. We propose an Procedure Integrated Development Environment which will present different editing modes and different views ...

  9. Medical Operations Decision Support System

    SBC: S&K Aerospace            Topic: O301

    Determining the probability of specific medical events on a given space mission is difficult. Yet, it is important to have reasonable estimates of these probabilities in order to make informed decisions about managing the associated risks. NASA's mission is and always will be to push the envelope, to go where no historical record exists to give guidance. Consequently, it is necessary to conside ...

  10. Development and Prototyping of a Digital Pulse Processor for Improved Coincidence Detection, Rejection, and Pulse Recovery, for High Count-Rate Silicon Drift Detectors

    SBC: 4pi Analysis, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The recent emergence of the Silicon Drift detector (SDD), for use in energy dispersive x-ray spectrometry (EDS), has made possible x-ray event streams with count rates as high as 1-10 Mcps. A problem with existing digital signal processing, as applied to SDDs, is the significant presence of coincidence peaks above the x-ray background. These coincidence peaks occur with amplitudes comparable to lo ...
