  1. Antistatic Thermal Control Coatings

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Electrostatic discharge control is vital for the health of any spacecraft. Exposure to charged particles in a space enviroment can lead to large charge differences across the craft, that, if no mechanism for controlled discharge is present, can destroy mission critical equipment. The preferred way of ESD control is to use conducting thermal control coatings. These coatings combine the ability to r ...

  2. Self-Deploying Foam Antenna Structures

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Inflatable or self-deployable systems offer the only practical way to achieve space deployed antennas with low mass at large aperture. In this Phase I program, open-celled rigid polyurethane foams were developed for use in self-deploying antenna structures. Advantages of such a system relative to current systems include high volumetric efficiency of packing, inherent restoring force, low (or no) o ...

  3. Imaging Spectropolarimetric Sensor for Airborne and Ground Based Retrieval of Aerosol Properties

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Aerodyne Research will develop, demonstrate and market HySPAR, the HyperSpectral Polarimeter for Aerosol Retrievals. Our HySPAR commercial market will comprise both product sales (selling copies of the sensor) and R&D-level aerosol field measurement services. HySPAR employs snapshot multi-angle (passive optical) spectropolarimetry to retrieve atmospheric aerosol macro and microphysical properties. ...

  4. Chlorophyll Fluorescence-Based Plant Health Monitor

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This project concerns the development of a sensor intended to remotely monitor plant stress using active stimulation of plant chlorophyll fluorescence. The intensity and spectral band shape of leaf chlorophyll fluorescence in green plants has been linked to the physiological status of the plants and thus provides a good indicator of plant health. The proposed sensor will measure the relative inten ...

  5. Low Cost Engine Test Stand for 500 lb Thrust Class Engines

    SBC: AJT and Associates, Inc            Topic: N/A

    AJT proposes to develop a low-cost, engine test-stand system for small (500 pound) thrust engines using gaseous, liquid or cryogenic propellants. This test stand would incorporate automated propellant transfer and automated propellant line purge systems. The engines would be configured to a standard test-stand interface, greatly reducing the time required to install and remove various engines. Thi ...

  6. A Photon-Counting Spectrometer for Elemental Analysis using LIBS

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Scientists have used laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) over the past decade to perform elemental analysis of soil, water and gases. The formation of laser-induced plasma, which produces a localized blackbody source for atomic emissions, enables this technology. Collection of the plasma's spectral signature by a lens or optical fiber allows examination for elemental components of numerous ...

  7. Surface Enhanced Silicon Avalanche Photodiodes for Near-IR Detection

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase II SBIR builds on the exciting results demonstrated during the Phase I research. Using a new approach for enhancing the near-infrared (IR) sensitivity of high gain avalanche photodiodes (APDs), Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc. (RMD) will develop a reliable procedure to produce APD arrays with high sensitivity at 1064 nm. This work utilizes an innovative technique to microtexture the f ...

  8. Nano Ceramic Sterilization Filter

    SBC: ARGONIDE CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Filters don't exist that are capable of removing virus and bacteria at high enough flow rates to be practical either for space systems or for domestic consumption. In Phase 1 we demonstrated feasibility that our nano ceramic fiber filter could produce sterile water at high flow rates. In Phase 2 we propose to develop performance data on such filters that would provide NASA with the capability for ...

  9. Upper and Lower Bounds in Finite Element Analysis of Aerospace Structures

    SBC: Astra Technologies, Inc            Topic: N/A

    The proposed research is intended to develop a new analysis for stresses and displacements in aerospace structures based on the combined conventional Displacement (Stiffness) Method and on a new formulation of the Force Method developed by the principal investigator. Since some of the elements used currently in the Displacement Method violate equations of stress equilibrium, an additional analysis ...

  10. Life-Size Haptic Device with Advanced Actuator-Drive Concept Providing Redundant

    SBC: Barrett Technology Inc            Topic: N/A

    Barrett Technology, Inc. proposes to design and build a lightweight high-performance manipulator for micro-gravity muscle/bone strengthening and trauma rehabilitation with data quantification. The device will be used on board months-long interplanetary space-exploration missions. The enabling technology is based on the novel concept presented confidentially in this proposal. If Phase I demonstrate ...
