  4. Long Wave Mid-Infrared Source for Trace Gas Sensing

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: S201

    Tunable laser spectrometers are used by NASA for investigations of planetary atmospheric constituent gases. The availability of widely tunable long-wavelength (3 to 12?Ym) lasers operating at room temperature would allow such spectrometers to a wider range of gas species detection sensitivity increased by orders-of-magnitude relative to near-infrared lasers currently used in these applications. Ac ...

  5. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Flexible Transpiration Cooled Thermal Protection System for Inflatable Atmospheric Capture and Entry Systems

    SBC: ANDREWS SPACE, INC.            Topic: X704

    Andrews Space, Inc. proposes an innovative transpiration cooled aerobrake TPS design that is thermally protective, structurally flexible, and lightweight. This innovative design will also meet launch volume constraints and satisfy terminal aerobraking requirements. The approach will focus on transpiration cooling of a flexible material and will consider ablative and insulative technologies as key ...

  9. 15-25K Static-Helium Regenerator/Double Pulse Tube Cooler for Receiving Arrays

    SBC: Beck Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NASA needs a cryogenic refrigerator for the 15-25K range for receiving arrays of ground-based antennas that will serve the telecommunications needs of future space exploration. We propose to develop a 15-25K Static-Helium Regenerator/Double Pulse Tube Cooler for receiving arrays. Our SHR/DPTC combines two of our technologies that have potential to enable pulse-tube coolers to operate efficiently ...
