  1. Defining the coupled effects of cryogenic, space-radiation, and hypervelocity impact damamge on COPV's

    SBC: Hypercomp Engineering, Inc            Topic: X303

    The objective of the research proposed herein is to define the coupled (combined) effect of critical environments on the structural performance of composite overwrap pressure vessels (COPV). The three environments that will be coupled are cryogenic temperature, space irradiation, and hypervelocity (micrometeoroid/space debris) impact. HyPerComp Engineering (HEI) have previously conducted researc ...

  5. Extreme Environment High Temperature Communication Systems

    SBC: INNOSYS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The purpose of this project is to develop and demonstrate a communications system capable of operation at extreme temperatures and pressures in hostile and corrosive environments such as found on the surface of the planet Venus. Although already explored by various orbiters and short-lived atmospheric probes and landers, Venus retains many secrets pertaining to its formation and evolution and als ...

  6. MEMOCVD Growth of AlGaN Heterojunctions for Advanced UV Photodetectors

    SBC: Sensor Electronic Technology, Inc.            Topic: S405

    Sensor Electronic Technology, Inc. (SET) proposes to develop ultraviolet detectors for focal plane arrays based on wide-bandgap semiconductor materials. Direct gap III?N AlInGaN materials are the only materials capable of combining a high sensitivity for detecting UV radiation with a sharp cutoff for either visible blind (cutoff < 400 nm) or solar-blind (cutoff < 290 nm) operation. These solid s ...

  7. Holographic Wavefront Correction for ShADOE LIDAR Receivers

    SBC: WASATCH PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: E102

    Current shared aperture diffractive optical elements (ShADOE) have intrinsic residual wavefront errors on the order of 50 waves which limits the angular resolution of the LIDAR application to about 300 micro-radians. We have reduced these aberrations by constructing a secondary holographic correction plate using the aberrated wave from the ShADOE as one of the two construction waves. The other con ...

  8. Spectrometer for Particle Characterization With a New Multiple-Scattering Theory

    SBC: Felix ALBA Consultants, Inc.            Topic: S401

    There are two major commercial types of light-scattering particle size analyzers: Static Light Scattering and Dynamic Light Scattering. They are expensive, delicate, bulky, and must operate at extremely low particle concentrations. A fundamental mathematical model for high concentrations has been in need for decades and finally developed by the author after 25 years of research and development (ME ...

  9. To Ensure the Integrity of the Cryogenic Propellant Depot Tank Within the Expected Radiation and Space Debris Environment

    SBC: Hypercomp Engineering, Inc            Topic: X204

    We intend to develop the technology for lightweight composite structure suitable for both cryogenic fuel depot storage as well as human in-space habitat. These will incorporate improved impact technologies for micro-meteor/space debris protection and radiation capable composite technologies. The application of filament wound composite pressure vessels to uses requiring pressurized storage at cr ...
