  1. Ceramic-Metal Interfaces by Functional Grading

    SBC: GLACIGEN MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: A107

    Glacigen Materials proposes a novel technique for producing large-area sheets of functionally graded materials (FGM), which yield robust ceramic-metal interfaces capable of withstanding harsh environments that include high temperatures. Propulsion systems offer some of the harshest possible design conditions from a materials perspective and the demands placed on engineering materials will become m ...

  2. Utilization of the International Space Station to Verify Photonic Devices for Enhanced Space-Based Atmospheric Profiling

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: H801

    The overall goal of the SBIR effort is completion of Technical Readiness Level (TRL) 5, component validation in a relevant environment, of the key photonics devices for a diode-based, locked wavelength, seed laser system currently being developed for space-based, High Spectral Resolution Lidar (HSRL) measurements. To achieve this goal, AdvR is proposing to the utilize the Materials International S ...

  3. Polarization Entangled Photon Pair Source for Space-Based Quantum Communication

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: H905

    The overall goal of this NASA effort is to develop and deliver efficient, single-pass quantum optical waveguide sources generating high purity hyper-entangled photon pairs for use in high-rate long-distance links. The new devices will produce hyper-entangled photon pairs with high efficiency, pure spectral properties, and low attenuation, providing the key technology required for deployment of gr ...

  4. High Power, Thermally Optimized Blue Laser for Lidar

    SBC: Bridger Photonics, Inc.            Topic: S101

    To enable widespread and rapid airborne bathymetric lidar to adequate depths in many ocean regions a low-cost, rugged, and high energy pulsed laser source must be developed in the ocean water transmittance spectrum of 450 - 490 nm. The ideal laser source will be high performance for lidar (high pulse energy, high rep rate, short pulse duration) with specific targeted emission spectrum to meet ocea ...

  5. Space-Hardened Seed Laser for Use in High Spectral Resolution Lidar Systems

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: S101

    The overall goal of the SBIR effort to develop a fully packaged, environmentally hardened, diode-based, locked wavelength, seed laser for seeding next generation Nd:YAG lasers currently being developed for future space-based, high spectral resolution Lidar (HSRL) measurements. The Phase I effort successfully demonstrated that a diode-based, wavelength-locked seed laser can provide the spectral pur ...

  6. Fast Electro-Optic Switch for Pulsed Space-Based Lidar Beam Steering

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: S101

    Lidar is a core technology in NASA's arsenal for science measurements from ground, air-borne and space based platforms. AdvR is proposing a beam steering mechanism for space-based Lidar based on AdvR's electro-optic deflector technology with no moving parts, making it favorable for space-based operation. The system operates on the principle of electro-optically controlled prisms engineered into a ...

  7. High-Capacity, High-Speed, Solid-State Hydrogen Gas Generator

    SBC: Anasphere, Inc            Topic: Z703

    Deployable aerodynamic decelerators are an enabling technology for missions to planets and moons with atmospheres as well as for returning payloads to Earth. These decelerators require a gas source to inflate them, and the objective is to provide an improvement over existing pressurized cold gas inflation systems. A solid-state hydrogen gas generator is proposed which is based on the thermal ...

  8. Lunar Spectral Irradiance Monitor

    SBC: Resonon, Inc.            Topic: S103

    The purpose of this effort is to develop an instrument to accurately calibrate (1% k=2) the lunar spectral reflectance (350 to 2,300 nm) at relatively low expense from a small satellite. Assuming the TSIS missions are successful and the solar irradiance is known, the lunar spectral reflectance can be used to provide known lunar irradiance, thereby providing a stable exo-atmospheric calibration sou ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
