  1. Diode-Pumped Neodymium-Yttria Laser for Ozone Lidar

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The purpose of this program is to develop a compact and efficient ultraviolet laser system for ozone sensing from space. The basis for this system will be a diode-pumped neodymium-yttria (Nd:Y2O3) laser which is frequency-tripled to generate uv light at either 305nm or 315nm. The ability to generate both uv wavelengths from a single frequency-tripled Nd:Y2O3 laser makes this approach potentially 4 ...

  2. Compact and efficient ultraviolet laser for astrobiology

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The purpose of this program is to develop a compact and efficient ultraviolet laser for use in space-based uv-Raman instruments. The basis for this system will be a diode-pumped neodymium-yttria (Nd:Y2O3) ceramic laser which is frequency-quadrupled to generate uv light at 237nm. The unique combination of a low-cost and robust ceramic laser with efficient 4th harmonic generation will provide an ide ...

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

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: B301

    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 ...

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

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

    The objective of the Phase I SBIR program was to demonstrate the feasibility of integrating pyrolysis and incineration steps into a system for processing of spacecraft solid wastes. The Phase I study involved a combination of bench scale experiments and data analysis. This work was accomplished in four tasks: 1) design and construct bench scale unit; 2) laboratory studies on solid waste processing ...

  5. Panoramic Stereoscopic Video System for Remote-Controlled Robotic Space Operations

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: F502

    This Phase I project will demonstrate the feasibility of providing panoramic stereoscopic images for remote-controlled robotic space operations using three fixed-position cameras. Remote-controlled robot operations are an important element in orbital and planetary space missions. Advanced display systems can greatly enhance the effectiveness of these operations. In the system proposed here, hum ...

  6. Autonomous Spacecraft Power Scheduling

    SBC: AEROASTRO, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The Autonomous Power Scheduler (APS) being developed by AeroAstro and Los Alamos National Laboratory will significantly improve the performance of small spacecraft power management, resulting in better utilization of the limited power resources for their payloads and subsystems. APS will dynamically monitor microsatellite power resources and then, by adaptively modifying the algorithmic solution a ...

  7. Vision-Based Attitude and Formation Determination System

    SBC: AEROASTRO, INC.            Topic: N/A

    To determine pointing and position vectors in both local and inertial coordinate frames, multi-spacecraft missions typically utilize separate attitude determination and formation metrology systems. For low Earth orbits (LEO), fleet position and geometry knowledge is almost exclusively achieved by using GPS data or ground uplink. In the ab-sence of this information, inter-satellite ranging between ...

  8. Many Manufactured Nanosats

    SBC: AEROASTRO, INC.            Topic: N/A

    To achieve the capability to affordably produce scores of nano-spacecraft for envisioned constellation missions, a new manufacturing process is needed to reduce the time and cost of fabricating and testing the nanosats. However, to achieve substantial savings, a fundamental paradigm shift in how spacecraft are built must be made. Current spacecraft are built with the same processes and procedures ...

  9. Metal Vaccro

    SBC: AEROASTRO, INC.            Topic: N/A

    NASA has determined that the use of modular and reconfigurable components is critical for the success of future large and complex space systems. In order to achieve this goal, it is necessary to be able to assemble and reassemble modules both on the ground and on orbit. Therefore, it requires a means to join components that is simple, reliable, and non-intrusive as well as strong and stiff enough ...

  10. Next Generation MK III Lightweight HUT/Hatch Assembly

    SBC: AIR-LOCK, INCORPORATED            Topic: F401

    The Next Generation MK III Lightweight HUT/Hatch Assembly will maximize the Hard Upper Torso - Hatch assembly weight reduction through the combination of innovative material selection and cross sectional redesign. The intent is to research, identify and down select robust lightweight materials that are best suited for space & planetary, (or lunar) exploration. This Next Generation MK III Lightwei ...
