  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  7. Superconducting Magnetic Energy Storage for Maglifter Launch Assist

    SBC: ADVANCED MAGNET LAB, INC.            Topic: N/A

    NASA is considering an electromagnetic catapult, the MagLifter to lowerthe cost of cargo delivery to space and improve launch reliability. Acarrier sled, levitated and propelled by magnets, provides an inintialvelocity to a space transportation vehicle. For Large payloads, therequired energy for this launch assist is in the range of 20 gigajoulewith peak-power requirements of several gigawatt.Usin ...

  10. Biomimetics Based Design of Damage Tolerant Airframe Panels

    SBC: AeroChem Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The specific innovation proposed is to design an advanced composite airframe panel for damage tolerance by incorporating biologic solutions to a similar problem found in nature, using a biomimetic approach. We will identify principal material (fiber) directions and density profiles about naturally occurring holes in bones through a microscopic and radiographic techniques. These holes are known to ...
