  1. Portable, Parallel, Stochastic Optimization for the Design of Aeropropulsion Components

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A


    SBIR Phase II 1994 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  2. Earth-Observing Sensor for Geostationary Orbit

    SBC: Apt, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The specific proposed innovation is the use of an active radiometer in place of conventional radar techniques for measuring rainfall over the earth's surface from satellite platforms. This technique provides a substantial savings in data acquisition time that can be used to increase the scan rate and to improve the spatial resolution (i.e. reduce the footprint) of the measurements. This will provi ...

  3. Thin-Film Pressure Sensor with Optical Output

    SBC: Gre, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose a thin, flexible pressure sensing film with optical out- put consisting of a polymer LED on a piezoelectric polymer substrate. The innovation lies in combining these two types of polymers to make a single sensor which will provide a minimal intrusion method for measuring pressure distributions on structures in free-flight and/or wind tunnel tests. Spatial resolution should be better tha ...

  4. Design Method for Stationary Plasma Thrusters

    SBC: NumerEx            Topic: N/A


    SBIR Phase I 1994 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  5. Resonant Ultrasound Inspection of Ceramic Ball Bearings

    SBC: Quatro Corp.            Topic: N/A

    Quatro proposes to apply the recently invented Resonant Ultrasound Spectroscopy (RUS) technology to the problem of non-destructive inspection (NDI) of rocket engine ceramic ball bearings. We have previously demonstrated that the RUS technology can quickly (seconds) detect the presence of flaws such as cracks, occlusions, density variations, roundness errors, texturing and internal strain in ball b ...

  6. Miniature Adsorption Blast-Freezer for Use in Space

    SBC: Rocky Research            Topic: N/A

    Adsorption refrigeration using ammoniated complex compounds as the absorbent media can be used for miniature portable blast freezers. This is possible because the technology allows low evaporator temperatures without staging, is scalable to small sizes, and has high reliability because the only moving parts are check valves. Compared to vapor compression or other sorption refrigeration systems, th ...

  7. Airborne Hygrometer Using a Diode Laser

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Southwest Sciences proposes the development of a diode-laser-based hygrometer for atmospheric studies. The instrument dynamic range will span dew (frost) points of +40¿ C down to -90¿ C and will be suitable for in situ measurements throughout the troposphere and tropopause. Response times will be 1 second, or less. The planned instrument detects absolute water vapor concentrations using opti ...

  8. High-Energy Super Capacitors from Molecularly Engineered Composite Dielectrics

    SBC: TPL, INC.            Topic: N/A


    SBIR Phase I 1994 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  9. Uniflow Two-Cycle Aero-Diesel Powerplant

    SBC: G.s. Engineering Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal outlines the design and development of a uniflow two stroke Aero-Diesel engine core in response to the NASA SBIR solicitation for a general aviation aircraft propulsion system. The proposed engine will offer increased power density, simplified operation, reduced emissions, noise, and vibration, while enhancing reliability and safety when compared to currently available general aviati ...

  10. Replacement Materials for Chromates in Coatings and Sealants

    SBC: Advanced Material Systems            Topic: N/A

    Use of chromates as corrosion inhibi.tors in coatings, adhesives and sealants is a well established technology. However, toxicity and waste disposal problems have led to the urgent need for development of an environmentally benign substitute for chromium compounds in coatings and sealants, which is the subject of this SBIR. This pa'per discusses the state-of-the-art technical approaches to the sol ...
