  1. Very large computer generated holograms for precision metrology of aspheric optical surfaces

    SBC: Arizona Optical Metrology LLC            Topic: S205

    Both ground and space telescopes employ aspheric mirrors. A particular example is the X-ray telescope where primary and secondary mirrors have nearly cylindrical surfaces. Computer Generated Holograms (CGH), in combination with commercial interferometers, provide high resolution and high accuracy measurements of aspheric optical surfaces. The current state of the art CGHs are made on 6" squar ...

  2. Lightweight radiation shielding materials with carbon nanotube reinforcements

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Human tissue and electronic component protection from harmful effects of space radiation is essential for extended deep space exploration voyages. The prime objective of this Phase II proposal is to develop a multi-functional composite material design to fulfill the current need for non-parasitic, lightweight, high-strength, and effective radiation shielding materials for space exploration applica ...

  4. BOUNDARY LAYER PUMPED PROPULSION

    SBC: Advanced Propulsion Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Advanced Propulsion Inc. proposes a Revolutionary Concept (RevCon) integrated aircraft and propulsion system that provides aircraft drag reduction and propulsion system efficiency increase, thereby improving aircraft fuel efficiency by as much as a factor of two. The key feature is the ducting of a high fraction of the aircraft total boundary layer from distributed airframe inlets to turbofan engi ...

  5. Wideband In-Situ Electromagnetic Sensor for Exploring Planetary Subsurface

    SBC: GEOPHEX, LTD.            Topic: N/A

    We propose a new broadband electromagnetic (EM) sensor, called GEM-5 (Figure 1), to measure the electrical conductivity of the first 5-10 m of Martian in-situ geology. The depth of exploration may increase with a higher transmitter power. While the sensor can be used for exploring other planets and moons, this proposal is directed specifically to a small rover such as the 1997 Sojourner to Mars. T ...

  7. Automated Digital Elevation Extraction from Multispectral Imaging Systems

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF VIRTUAL ORGANIZATIONS, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    NASA is seeking improved capabilities to help make Earth measurement easier to use and more reliable for practitioners. Accordingly, we propose to research advanced methods for generating automatically precise elevation data from modern high spatial resolution digital stereoscopic panchromatic/multispectral sensors using improved digital auto-correlation techniques. Applications for this solution ...

  8. Linear Structural Relations Modeling for Complex Land Cover and Land Use Change

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF VIRTUAL ORGANIZATIONS, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    NASA is seeking improved capabilities that enhance human and machine interaction in support of remote sensing applications. Particular interest involves collaborative operations in dynamic user environments.We propose to research and develop linear structural equation modeling (i.e., LISREL) methods for purposes of fundamentally advancing land cover and land use change (LCLUC) applications. We pla ...

  9. High-Power, Single-Frequency UV Laser Transmitter

    SBC: LITE CYCLES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    NASA is actively pursuing the development of technologies that enable satellite-based laser wind sounding. Of particular interest are technologies that enable tropospheric wind profiling at low cost and high efficiency. Traditional laser-based wind sensors utilize coherent-mode detection, which depend on high aerosol concentrations to measure wind fields, and are therefore not suited for troposphe ...
