  1. An Optimized Semi-Flush Flasher

    SBC: Thoughtventions Unlimited Llc            Topic: N/A

    It is proposed to develop a full prototype next-generation semi-flush flasher system for airport runway approach lighting. Current systems are many years old and inefficient; airports need inset flashers to add runway length and more efficiently use strictly limited land allocations. An inset flasher is proposed that is optimized both optically and electrically. A flasher fixture based on the P ...

  3. Trace gas sensor based on a novel room temperature mid-infrared laser source

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    We propose here to develop a practical multi-species sensor for atmospheric gas concentrations and fluxes. The sensor will be based upon Tunable Diode Laser Absorption Spectroscopy (TDLAS), which is a highly sensitive and selective measurement technique. The practicality of this technique has up to now been limited by the use of cryogenically cooled diode lasers. In this work, a compact room tempe ...

  4. High efficiency laser for space-borne lidar applications

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The next generation of space-based lidar systems requires high energy and highly efficient solid-state laser transmitters. High efficiency enables the system volume and weight to be reduced, both for the laser and the primary power source. For a space-based lidar application, this means reduced launch weight (and cost) and longer satellite lifetime. The current baseline approach is to use diode-pu ...

  5. Novel Mini-DIAL Transmitter

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    This proposal addresses the need for a new generation of water vapor DIAL transmitters. These transmitters must be UAV flight deployable and operate efficiently at a high repetition rate and low pulse energy. Aculight proposes to address this need with a compositionally tuned garnet laser that operates directly at the wavelength of interest. This quasi-four level laser material requires a very bri ...

  7. An Innovative Non-Catalytic Thruster for Satellite Attitude Control Systems

    SBC: Adroit Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The innovation addressed in this proposal is the development of a non-catalytic thruster for an attitude control system that employs an environmentally friendly (¿green¿) monopropellant. The thruster and tailored propellant blends developed during the course of this proposed program would eliminate the temperature-limiting catalyst beds that currently prevent the full realization of green monopr ...

  9. Label-Free, High-Throughput Proteomics Analyzer

    SBC: CIENCIA INC            Topic: N/A

    The Space Station Biological Research Program at NASA is developing advanced facilities, including cell culture systems to conduct microgravity research in cell biology onboard the Space Station. These systems will provide basic and essential infrastructure for space-based cell biology research. However, full utilization of the Space Station biological research facilities will require additional i ...

  10. Stabilization of Electrodynamic Space Tethers

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Electrodynamic tether propulsion can provide propellantless propulsion capability for a number of important missions in LEO, including stationkeeping for small satellites, boosting of the International Space Station, deorbit of malfunctioning satellites, and orbit raising of payloads. Theoretical analyses, however, indicate that electro-dynamic tethers will experience dynamical instabilities in wh ...
