  3. ARCSTONE Improvements

    SBC: Resonon, Inc.            Topic: S1

    This SBIR Phase I effort will be devoted to exploring possible improvements for the NASA ARCSTONE instrument. One possible improvement will be to utilize total internal reflection optics for the fore-optics of the system. Possible benefits include reduced polarization and smaller size. A second possible improvement will be to use an optical design that requires only one focal plane array for the e ...

  6. Radiation-Hardened CubeSat Power Management & Distribution (PMAD) for Europa Environment

    SBC: Ragnarok Industries Inc            Topic: S4

    In Phase 1, Ragnarok will mature the much-needed rad-hard BCDR technology from TRL 3 - 4. Phase 2 of Ragnarok’s efforts will proceed to develop the entire functional prototype radiation-hardened PMAD system including the newly developed BCDR hardware from Phase 1. Phase 2 efforts will conclude with a full Critical Design Review (CDR) and a completed and closed list of HRs and HRMPs. The ...

  7. Frequency Agile Seed Laser for Orbital Doppler-Shift Compensation

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: S1

    The overall goal of the SBIR effort is to develop a frequency-agile, stand-alone, space-hardened diode-based seed laser with options for locking and frequency agility to compensate for doppler shift during orbit. This US-manufactured platform will be applicable for seeding next generation Nd:YAG lasers currently being developed for high-priority-designated aerosol missions (single- and multi-chann ...
