  1. Real-Time Remote-Sensing Air Temperature Radiometer for High-Speed Aircraft

    SBC: OPHIR CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1994 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  2. Parallel Optical Backplane Interconnections for Avionics and High-Performance Computers

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

    We propose to develop ruggedized optical connector arrays for interconnection of electronic processing modules through parallel fiber ribbon optical backplanes. Computer manufacturers consider optical backplanes the inevitable next step in interconnections and optical connector arrays to be the most-needed component. Arrays of vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (tradenamed LASE-ARRA ...

  3. Robust, Fiber-Optic Communication System for Harsh Aerospace Environments

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

    In Phase I Photonics Research Incorporated proposes to design and analyze a next generation (1 - 16,000 Mb/s) fiber optic data transport system for spacecraft applications. In Phase II we will construct the prototype system.

  4. Programmable, High-Resolution, High-Speed Digital Video Camera

    SBC: Q-DOT, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Low-resolution, solid-state imaging systems exist which are capable of relatively high frame rates (e.g., 500 f/s (f/s)). Other solid- state detectors are capable of reasonably high spatial resolutions; however, these systems are typically limited to less than one f/s capture rate. To date, no single solidstate architecture exists which is capable of selectively imaging at either high speed or hig ...

  5. Catalytic Oxidtion of Halogenated Hydrocarbons

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

  6. Miniature Adsorption Blast-Freezer for Use in Space

    SBC: Rocky Research            Topic: N/A

    Adsorption refrigeration using ammoniated complex compounds as the absorbent media can be used for miniature portable blast freezers. This is possible because the technology allows low evaporator temperatures without staging, is scalable to small sizes, and has high reliability because the only moving parts are check valves. Compared to vapor compression or other sorption refrigeration systems, th ...

  7. Real-Time, Image Compression System for Use in Autonomous Navigation

    SBC: Silicon Mountain Design, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    High compression ratios possible through wavelet transforms offer the potential for realtime image transmission over narrow-band data channels. This type of transmission capability would allow for low-power image transmission using existing communication hardware. Q-DOT proposes a real-time image compression system based upon optically based wavelet decomposition. Optical processing allows for mas ...

  8. Programmable Incubator for Autonomous Support of Living Cells in Microgravity

    SBC: Synergetics International,            Topic: N/A

    The instrument described in this proposal, the programmable incubator (PIN), is a low-cost, highly reusable and reprogrammable cellular life support module for the study of single celled organisms such as bacteria, algae, and yeast, and for the study of plant and animal cell cultures in a microgravity environment. This device maintains cells under controlled environmental conditions autonomously f ...

  9. Terrain Analysis and Visualization Workstation

    SBC: Telesis Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The Terrain Analysis and Visualization Workstation will extract terrain height information from multi-sensor imagery, produce a co-registered set of orthorectified images, and fuse the imagery with existing hydrological, transportation, and land-use datasets. The resulting data will be presented to the user through a coherent set of 3-dimensional visualization, manipulation, and measurement tools. ...

  10. Low-Altitude-Wind Sensor System

    SBC: Wels Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    The WELS/Radian team proposes to design a system of remotely operated surfacemounted sodar sensor which are networked to measure winds from the surface to 30 m to support space shuttle terminal operations. The system will incorporate automated data quality control to insure readings can be used instantaneously without extensive meteorological review. The system will also include modeling which wil ...
