  1. Accelerated Numerical Processing API Based on GPU Technology

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: S802

    The recent performance increases in graphics processing units (GPUs) have made graphics cards an attractive platform for implementing computationally intense applications. With their numerous parallel computational pipelines and SIMD architecture, modern GPUs can outperform high-end microprocessors by one to three orders of magnitude, depending on the problem. Most work to date at EM Photonics a ...

  2. Quantum Calorimeters Based on HgCdTe Alloys

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: S402

    NASA's next generation of x-ray observation missions require x-ray calorimeters with superior energy resolution. Semimetallic HgTe has already proven itself as an excellent soft x-ray absorber material due to its low heat capacity. Hg0.834Cd0.166Te was shown in Phase 1 to have a heat capacity superior to that of HgTe. Hence Hg0.834Cd0.166Te-based microcalorimeter arrays are expected to have an ene ...

  3. High-Efficiency, High-Temperature, Ultra-Lightweight GaP-Based Solar Cells

    SBC: EpiWorks, Inc.            Topic: S203

    The objective of this proposal is to study and demonstrate novel GaAsNP/GaP/AlGaP technology for use in extreme photovoltaic (PV) energy conversion. NASA and the scientific community are interested in solar missions that go as far as Saturn or even into near sun conditions. Such missions present a challenging problem for PV technology. In addition to the requisite high efficiency and reduced so ...

  4. Integrated L-Band T/R Module

    SBC: MicroLink Devices            Topic: S605

    The goal of this Phase II project is to deliver an integrated L-band transmit/receive (T/R) module which will be fabricated from a GaAs-based combined HBT/PHEMT epistructure. The T/R module will consist of a power amplifier, a low noise amplifier, and two switches. The performance goal for the low noise amplifier is 30 dB gain with a less than 1.0 dB noise figure. The performance goal for the p ...

  5. Enhanced Brine Dewatering System

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: X302

    The purpose of the Enhanced Brine Dewatering System (EBDS) is to provide a scalable means of completely recovering usable water from byproducts created by reverse osmosis water purification systems without the use of consumable wicks. Extended duration Lunar and Mars missions will require the conservation and recovery of water to allow for autonomous closed environments that dramatically reduce la ...

  6. Plasma Air Decontamination System (PADS)

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: X301

    The proposed Plasma Air Decontamination System (PADS) is a trace contaminant control device based on non-thermal atmospheric-pressure plasma technology. Compared to the Trace Contaminant Control System (TCCS) and the Vapor Phase Catalytic Ammonia Removal system (VPCAR), this novel technology operates at ambient temperature and atmospheric pressure, requires less energy, has no moving parts, and re ...

  7. Just-in-Time Simulation Platform

    SBC: Planet, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Long duration spaceflight and exploration missions will require complex operations and demanding tasks. Success will therefore depend on the knowledge and flexibility of the crew and the critical tools at their disposal. The purpose of this Phase II project is to develop a software tool that combines intelligent tutoring (or logic) with highly interactive 3D simulation software to create an on-dem ...

  9. LABORATORY DEMONSTRATION OF INNOVATIVE, COMPACT 3-D IMAGING SENSOR

    SBC: Daedalus Enterprises, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT WILL EXPERIMENTALLY DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF OBTAINING A HIGH-RESOLUTION, THREE-DIMENSIONAL IMAGE OF A SCENE USING AN INNOVATIVE, FOCAL-PLANE PROCESSOR TO PRODUCE A COMPACT OPTICAL SENSOR. THE INNOVATION IS IN THE GATING OF THE IMAGE INTENSIFIER TO DEMODULATE AN AMPLITUDE-MODULATED LASER BEAM. THIS OPTICAL HOMODYNE PROCESS USES FOCAL-PLANE PROCESSING TO ACQUIRE THE THREE-DIMENSION ...
