  1. Active Sensors

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The purpose of this Phase I program is to demonstrate the feasibility of a compact, frequency tripled Nd:Y2O3 laser system to generate 305nm and 315nm for global tropospheric ozone sensing from space. Because Nd:Y2O3 can generate output on both the 915 nm transition and the 947 nm transition, the desired ozone UV DIAL wavelengths of 305 nm and 315 nm can be generated using a SINGLE laser device th ...

  2. A Hybrid Pyrolysis/Incineration System for Solid Waste Resource Recovery

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Both pyrolysis and incineration steps have been considered as the key solid waste processing step for a Controlled Ecological Life Support System (CELSS). Pyrolysis is more amenable to handling mixed solid waste streams in a microgravity environment, but produces a more complex product stream. Incineration produces a simpler product stream, but the incineration of mixed solids is a complex unit op ...

  3. Carbon-Supported Amine Sorbent Monoliths for Carbon Dioxide Removal

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The NASA objective of expanding the human experience into the far reaches of space will require the development of regenerable life support systems. On-board carbon dioxide (CO2) removal units play a key role in such systems ensuring high quality cabin air for crew members. Similar but more compact units are needed for extravehicular activities (space suit). The overall objective is to develop a C ...

  4. Microporous Carbon for Radiation Shielding and Hydrogen Storage

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Advanced Fuel Research, Inc. (AFR) has developed a technology to provide radiation shielding, while simultaneously increasing the capacity of hydrogen storage tanks. This technology uses carbon foam filler with a complex pore structure (?microporosity?). The tank with the filler has, counter-intuitively, more capacity to store hydrogen than an otherwise empty tank. This technology increases hydrog ...

  6. Cytometer on a Chip

    SBC: CIENCIA INC            Topic: N/A

    The objective of the proposed effort is to develop a novel technology that will provide a unique and powerful alternative to conventional flow cytometry. This new system, which we call a cytometer on a chip will spatially sort cells on a microarray chip based on the presence of specific cell surface receptors or other surface features. Detection and quantitation is accomplished with grating-couple ...

  7. Technologies for Momentum-Exchange/Electrodynamic-Reboost Tether Facilities

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

    A modular Momentum-Exchange/Electrodynamic-Reboost (MXER) tether system can provide a fully-reusable in-space propulsion system that can provide propellantless propulsion for orbital transfer, Earth-to-Orbit launch assist, and reboost of LEO spacecraft such as the ISS. By eliminating the need to launch large quantities of transfer propellant into orbit for each payload, a MXER tether system can gr ...

  8. Multi-Application Survivable Tether (MAST) Experiment

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

    Space tether technology can provide propellantless propulsion for orbital maneuvering, orbital transfer, and spacecraft formation flying. The MAST (Multi- Application Survivable Tether) experiment team, consisting of Tethers Unlimited, Inc. (TUI) and the Stanford University Space Systems Development Laboratory (SSDL), propose to develop and test space-survivable tether technologies relevant to mom ...

    STTR Phase I 2003 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  9. SensorLine: A Distributed Sensor System for Planetary Exploration

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

    The SensorLine is a small, simple, low-cost system for deploying arrays of tethered microsensors for planetary, asteroid, and subsurface exploration. The SensorLine system integrates the microsensors into a thin, lightweight tether that provides both power and communication. In planetary exploration applications, the SensorLine?s novel deployment method permits these sensors to be distributed over ...

  10. Rich Annotation of Images

    SBC: INNOVATIVE DECISION TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Objective is to significantly enhance the ability to describe, catalog, search and retrieve images through the use of rich annotations (RA) of features in an image. Traditional approaches rely on text-based notes and keywords in metadata; proposed approach will use annotation layer (AL). AL contains drawings and icons to mark features, and domain specific properties to describe the features. Prope ...
