  1. Passive Wireless SAW Humidity Sensors and System

    SBC: SENSANNA INCORPORATED            Topic: T601

    Phase I demonstrated the technical feasibility of creating surface acoustic wave (SAW) based humidity sensors that respond rapidly (under 0.5 second) and reversibly to a wide range of humidity levels using nanoparticle and thin polymer films. This proposal describes a Phase II effort that will result in the development of multiple uniquely identifiable, wirelessly interrogable, passive humidity s ...

  2. Picosats for Autonomous Rendezvous and Docking Technology Demonstration

    SBC: EMERGENT SPACE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: T601

    Over the next decade, a host of new technologies and capabilities will be needed by NASA to support Project Constellation. For risk reduction considerations, it is desirable that they be flown on other missions prior to use on vehicles such as Orion or Altair. An innovative and cost-effective approach to doing so is to use picosats, which are miniaturized spacecraft with masses on the order of a ...

  4. Reconfigurable Weather Radar for Airborne Applications

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: T401

    Intelligent Automation, Inc (IAI) and its university partner, University of Oklahoma (OU), Norman, propose a forward-looking airborne environment sensor based on active weather radar technologies. The sensor consists of a software-defined radar transceiver, compact dual-polarized array antenna operating in the X-band as well as an integrated RF analog front-end. By leveraging dual-polarization pro ...

  5. Tunable, Narrow Line Width Mid-Infrared Laser Source

    SBC: Maxion Technologies, Inc.            Topic: T401

    Maxion Technologies, Inc. (Maxion) and Professor Mario Dagenais and his group at the University of Maryland (UMD) jointly propose to develop a compact, efficient, single mode, narrow linewidth tunable laser source in the 3.2–to–3.6 micron wavelength region. This effort, if successful, will assist NASA in its trace gas detection objectives by supplying NASA with the most critical (and difficult t ...

  6. Wavelength Drift Corrector for Wind Lidar Receivers

    SBC: SIGMA SPACE CORPORATION            Topic: T401

    We propose to develop and demonstrate an receiver system utilizing our novel technique for tracking and compensating for laser wavelength shifts in lidar systems. During Phase 1, we demonstrated that in addition to tracking and correcting for laser frequency drift, the system is able to track and correct for etalon frequency drift (in fact, only this relative frequency drift can be tracked). Dat ...

  7. Ridge Waveguide Structures in Magnesium-Doped Lithium Niobate

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: T401

    In this NASA Phase I STTR effort, the feasibility of fabricating isolated ridge waveguides in 5% magnesium-doped lithium niobate (5% MgO:LN) will be established. Ridge waveguides in MgO:LN will significantly improve the power handling and conversion efficiency, increase photonic component integration, and be well suited to space based applications. The key innovation in this effort is to combine ...

  8. Adaptive Magnetorheological Isolator for Ground Support Equipment

    SBC: MCMURDO, INC.            Topic: T602

    The minimization of vibration-induced damage has become a critical issue for rocket launch ground support electronics (GSE). In particular, the effect of high acoustic and exhaust blast loading during launch results in large amplitude motions of the support structures, which can transmit damaging loads to the GSE. This results in the need for extensive check out and frequent repairs of GSE syste ...
