  1. High Speed Non Ionizing Terahertz Measurement System to Replace Nuclear Gages

    SBC: PICOMETRIX, LLC            Topic: N/A

    We propose to prove the feasibility of a high speed non ionizing time domain terahertz (THz) measurement system to replace nuclear gauges. Nuclear source gauges (such as beta and gamma) are used in industrial process monitoring and control, often to measure thickness or mass in paper, plastics, rubber, and food stuffs in manufacturing and packaging. A single system based on low power non-ionizing ...

  2. Monolithic, High-Speed Fiber-Optic Switching Array for Lidar

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: E102

    This NASA SBIR Phase II effort will develop a 1 x 10 prototype non-mechanical fiber optic switch for use with high power lasers. The proposed optical device is a fiber-based multi-channel switch to rapidly switch a fiber-coupled laser among ten output channels as an integral part of a fiber-based fixed-array laser transmitter for next-generation NASA lidar systems. The key innovation is the use ...

  3. High Power Electro-Optic Modulator for Space-Based Applications

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: S406

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I effort will establish the feasibility of developing a fiber coupled, high power, electro-optically controlled, space qualified, phase modulator for the NASA Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA). Specific to the LISA project is the use of three spacecraft, spanned by vast distances, to make gravitational wave measurements. A central aspect in mai ...

  4. Low-Power, Lightweight Cloud Water Content Sensor

    SBC: Anasphere, Inc            Topic: E103

    The measurement of cloud water content is of great importance in understanding the formation of clouds, their structure, and their radiative properties which in turn affect the climate. While a variety of sensors exist for making these measurements, all of the existing sensors require far too much power or other energy input to be used on small platforms with limited payloads such as UAVs, balloo ...

  5. Robust CCSDS Image Data to JPEG2K Transcoding

    SBC: Cybernet Systems Corporation            Topic: O101

    Images from space satellites, whether deep space or planetary, are often compressed in a lossy manner to ease transmission requirements such as power, error-rate, and data stream size. These requirements differ from standard computer image processing requirements since storage space, processing speed, and power constraints differ between PCs and satellites. To facilitate use of satellite images in ...

  6. Identification and Reduction of Turbomachinery Noise

    SBC: Comet Technology Corporation            Topic: A201

    Noise has become a primary consideration in the design and development of many products, particulary in aerospace, automotive and consumer product industries. Communities near airports are often exposed to high noise levels due to low flying aircraft in the takeoff and landing phases of fligh and the major contribution to the overall noise is comming from the propulsion source noise. It is propose ...

  7. Arc Suppression Coatings

    SBC: Electrodynamic Applications Inc            Topic: S501

    In order to support systems such as the Momentum Exchange/Electrodynamic Reboost (MXER) Tether, NASA has identified the need for advanced electrodynamic-tether materials. A recently identified concern with present tether materials, particularly illustrated by the arcing after the tether break during the TSS-1R mission, is the need for arc suppression in the event that the insulation is breached b ...

  8. An L-Band Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) Detection and Mitigation Testbed

    SBC: EMAG TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: E104

    Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) can render microwave radiometer measurements useless. We have proposed a method and an architecture that can be used to identify sources of RFI and identify an optimal scheme for the mitigation of RFI. The system consists of a fully functional digital radiometer that can collect data in the field and pipe the pre-detected signal into, for example, a spectrum anal ...

  9. CMOS-MEMS Microgravity Accelerometer with High-Precision DC Response

    SBC: EVIGIA SYSTEMS INC            Topic: B101

    In this Phase II SBIR project a high-sensitivity low-noise all-silicon CMOS-MEMS accelerometer for quasi-steady measurements of accelerations at sub 1 micro-g levels will be developed. The outcome of the project is a capacitive microaccelerometer with a resolution of 90ng/sqrt-Hz over +/-0.1g range for Type A sensor and 0.8ug/sqrt-Hz over +/-1g for Type B sensor with programmable bandwidth from D ...

  10. LiDAR and Hyperspectral Fusion for Landslide Hazard Detection

    SBC: HyPerspectives Inc.            Topic: S701

    HyPerspectives, Inc. and its researchers propose to use remote sensing technologies to answer specific scientific questions for researchers and decision-makers in the natural hazards community. We will employ both current and innovative data fusion techniques to fill key deficiency gaps limiting progress in the natural hazards discipline. By fusing high-resolution hyperspectral imagery and LiDAR ...
