  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 ...

  4. Transonic Stability Test of Variable Drag Ballute

    SBC: ANDREWS SPACE, INC.            Topic: A702

    Low cost, reliable atmospheric entry technology is needed to support NASA cargo recovery from the ISS, earth return of small payloads, planetary aerocapture, and planetary probe missions. Fixed aeroshields and winged structures are well proven, but are not appropriate for many missions due to envelope, weight, and cost constraints. Inflatable ballute technology offers a low weight, cost effectiv ...

  5. Active Gas Regenerative Liquefier

    SBC: CryoFuel Systems, Inc.            Topic: F302

    We offer a novel liquefier that has the potential to simultaneously increase thermodynamic efficiency and significantly reduce complexity. The ?active gas regenerative liquefier? (AGRL) uses an array of discrete micro compressor-expander units in a periodic heat exchanger to accomplish extremely efficient liquefaction of hydrogen and other cryogenic fluids. When an array of these units are comb ...

  6. Multi-Application Survivable Tether (MAST) Experiment

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

    The MAST (Multi-Application Survivable Tether) team, consisting of Tethers Unlimited, Inc. (TUI) and the Standford University Space Systems Development Laboratory (SSDL), propose to develop and fly a very low cost nanosatellite experiment that will demonstrate the deployment of a lightweight multiline tether on orbit and obtain data on its survivability in the micrometeoroid and orbital debris env ...

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

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: A503

    The MXER Tether Boost Facility will serve as a fully-reusable in-space ?upper-stage? that will provide propellantless propulsion for orbital transfer and Earth-to-Orbit launch assist. By elimi-nating the need to launch an upper stage along with each payload, the MXER Tether can reduce the size of the launch vehicle needed to deploy the payloads, achieving dramatic reductions in total launch costs. ...

  8. SensorLine: A Distributed Sensor System for Planetary Exploration

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: S103

    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 ov ...

  9. Feasibility Demonstration of a Multi-Cylinder Stirling Convertor with a Duplex Linear Alternator

    SBC: INFINIA CORPORATION            Topic: F309

    Stirling Technology Company (STC) proposes to integrate an existing Multi-Cylinder Free-Piston Stirling Engine (MPFPSE) with innovative compact linear alternators. Future manned and unmanned scientific and exploration missions will require substantially more electric power from nuclear, solar, and other heat sources than existing launch-capable systems can effectively provide. A scalable, cost-eff ...

  10. Self-Contained Distributed Cooling Module for High Heat Sources

    SBC: MICROENERGY TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    MicroEnergy Technologies, Inc. (MicroET) is proposing to develop a self-contained and autonomous thermal management system for distributed cooling of microelectronics. The problem of managing the heat load from multiple discrete heat sources within electronic systems is becoming a growing problem and receiving attention not only at NASA but at DoD and within the commercial sector. In this project, ...
