  3. Fast Electro-Optic Switch for Pulsed Space-Based Lidar Beam Steering

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: S101

    Lidar is a core technology in NASA's arsenal for science measurements from ground, air-borne and space based platforms. AdvR is proposing a beam steering mechanism for space-based Lidar based on AdvR's electro-optic deflector technology with no moving parts, making it favorable for space-based operation. The system operates on the principle of electro-optically controlled prisms engineered into a ...

  4. Electromagnetic Characterization of Advanced Composites by Voxel-Based Inverse Methods

    SBC: VICTOR TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: Z1102

    The nondestructive characterization of advanced composites, such as carbon-fiber reinforced polymers (cfrp), by electromagnetic means is well established. What is needed to advance the state of the art are sophisticated inversion algorithms that allow layup and impact damage to be determined in localized regions, which means that more traditional methods of model-based inverse methods must be rep ...

  5. High-Capacity, High-Speed, Solid-State Hydrogen Gas Generator

    SBC: Anasphere, Inc            Topic: Z703

    Deployable aerodynamic decelerators are an enabling technology for missions to planets and moons with atmospheres as well as for returning payloads to Earth. These decelerators require a gas source to inflate them, and the objective is to provide an improvement over existing pressurized cold gas inflation systems. A solid-state hydrogen gas generator is proposed which is based on the thermal ...

  8. Electromagnetic Models and Software for the Nondestructive Evaluation of Carbon Nanotube Based Composites

    SBC: VICTOR TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: H1301

    The use of eddy-current methods to detect damage in aerospace structures,and to characterize materials is well established, and is a key item to ensure that the risk of structural failures meets the strict damage tolerance requirements established by NASA. This is especially challenging when one considers that common aerospace structures are made from such disparage materials as aluminum, titanium ...

    SBIR Phase I 2016 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  9. Lunar Spectral Irradiance Monitor

    SBC: Resonon, Inc.            Topic: S103

    During this effort an instrument for calibrating the lunar irradiance will be designed. Such an instrument will lead to reliable exoatmospheric calibration for past, current, and future earth-viewing instruments and improve the accuracy of their data products, which in turn will improve climate change and weather models. The instrument will measure both the solar and lunar irradiances, which will ...

  10. Sintered Inductive Metal Printer with Laser Exposure

    SBC: TECHSHOT, INC.            Topic: H1401

    The proposed innovation is a 3D metal printer, which offers the unique ability to fabricate metal components and tools in space. The proposed system will accomplish this task through the utilization of a two-stage filament melting process whereby a metallic filament is first heated to Curie temperature through induction and then deposited on a build platform where it is fused to the previous layer ...
