  1. Fiber-Based Ultraviolet Laser System

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: S401

    The purpose of this program is to develop a compact and efficient ultraviolet laser system for use in space-based uv-Raman instruments. The basis for this system will be a modulated diode seed laser followed by a fiber amplifier which is frequency-quadrupled to generate uv light at 245nm. The unique combination of a compact and efficient fiber amplifier with efficient harmonic generation will pro ...

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

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: F502

    In this project, the development of a novel panoramic, stereoscopic video system was proposed. The proposed system, which contains no moving parts, uses three-fixed position cameras equipped with NASA's Panoramic Refracting Optic (PRO) to generate stereoscopic images over a hemispherical work area. This system will provide an immersive remote environment for robot operation during space missions ...

  3. Radiation Shielding and Hydrogen Storage with Multifunctional Carbon

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: B309

    This project addresses two vital problems for long-term space travel activities: radiation shielding and hydrogen storage for power and propulsion. While both problems have been studied for many years, there is currently no satisfactory technology for providing adequate non-parasitic shielding. Even in low-Earth orbit, astronauts must be closely monitored for radiation exposure, and some mission ...

  4. Low Cost/Low Noise Variable Pitch Ducted Fan

    SBC: Aerocomposites, Inc.            Topic: T701

    ACI proposes a design for a Propulsor (Low Cost/Low Noise Variable Pitch Ducted Fan) that has wide application in all sectors of Aviation. Propulsor hardware of this low cost design can be integrated with a broad range of aircraft engines (e.g. existing piston engines, automotive derivative piston engines, new design turbine engines) for use in new design aircraft. The proposed Propulsor desig ...

  7. High Resolution Multispectral Flow Imaging of Cells with Extended Depth of Field

    SBC: Amnis Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Proposed is the development the extended depth of field (EDF) or confocal like imaging capabilities of a breakthrough multispectral high resolution imaging flow cytometer. This platform shall have unparalleled cellular analysis capabilities intended to further biological space research (fundamental, micro-gravity and radiation biology) and the potential capability of monitoring astronaut health. T ...

  8. Transonic Stability Test of Variable Drag Ballute

    SBC: ANDREWS SPACE, INC.            Topic: A702

    Ballutes, or inflatable decelerators, offer significant advantages over rigid shells for aerocapture of planetary spacecraft and for earth reentry of cargo by providing mass savings and simplified packaging features. Traditional ballutes, however, have provided little or no trajectory control. For new platform functionality, high drag must be accompanied by some degree of control; also, incorporat ...

    SBIR Phase II 2005 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  9. Optimized Magnetic Nozzles for MPD Thrusters

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: X606

    Magnetoplasmadynamic (MPD) thrusters can provide the high-specific impulse, high-power propulsion required to enable ambitious human and robotic exploration missions to the Moon, Mars, and outer planets. Whereas the thrust and power densities of Hall and Ion thrusters are limited by space charge effects, MPD thrusters can process very high power levels while providing high specific impulse thrust. ...

    SBIR Phase I 2005 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  10. Simulation Approach to Mission Risk and Reliability Analysis

    SBC: GoldSim Technology Group LLC            Topic: X801

    It is proposed to develop and demonstrate an integrated total-system risk and reliability analysis approach that is based on dynamic, probabilistic simulation. This will be achieved by adapting a methodology and software that were originally developed for long-term safety analyses of nuclear waste disposal, and that are currently used by the U.S. Department of Energy and the Nuclear Regulatory Co ...
