  1. Highly Efficient, Compact, Wavelength Converters for Pulsed and CW Laser Sources Used in Lidar-Based Remote Sensing and Ranging Systems

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: S602

    AdvR, Inc. proposes the development of a highly efficient, fiber pigtailed, waveguide-based UV frequency converter module. This UV module will be an important element in future NASA sponsored Doppler lidar and High Spectral Resolution Lidar (HSRL) aerosol missions. The key innovation is the use of dual-element periodically poled waveguides embedded in a nonlinear optical substrate. This innovat ...

  2. Miniature Carbon Dioxide Sensor for Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems

    SBC: Anasphere, Inc            Topic: S603

    Phase 1 has seen the development of a revolutionary new type of sensor for making carbon dioxide (CO2) measurements from small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) and other platforms such as sounding balloons. The chemistry behind the new sensor has been proven, example sensors were fabricated, and the technique has shown its immunity to many interferences (notably humidity and temperature) which aff ...

  3. Procedure Integrated Development Environment (PRIDE)

    SBC: S&K Aerospace            Topic: N/A

    NASA captures and distributes operational knowledge in the form of procedures. These procedures are created and accessed by a range of people performing many different jobs. These people have different needs for procedure data and different ways of interacting with procedures. We propose an Procedure Integrated Development Environment which will present different editing modes and different views ...

  4. Electronic Procedures for Medical Operations

    SBC: S&K Aerospace            Topic: O301

    We propose an alternative to using Microsoft Word for representing medical procedures that will make the procedures easier to construct and maintain, particularly when there are changes to the hardware or changes to the resulting format of the procedure. We call this alternative an "electronic procedure". Rather than a text-based document, this content-based document separates the text from the fo ...

  5. High Power Electro-Optic Modulator for Space-Based Applications

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: S406

    ADVR, Inc. proposes the development of a fiber coupled, high power, electro-optically controlled, space qualified, phase modulator for the NASA Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA). The proposed device will be capable of phase modulating a 1 W or greater, continuous wave optical signal at multi-gigahertz rates at 1064 nm. The key innovation is the use of a waveguide embedded in a non-linear o ...

  6. Waveguide Phase Modulator for Integrated Planar Lightwave Circuits in KTP

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: S602

    This SBIR Phase I effort proposes the development of a potassium titanyl phosphate (KTP) waveguide phase modulator for future integration into a Planar Lightwave Circuit (PLC) used for high spectral resolution aerosol and cloud lidar applications. The PLC is a monolithic substrate that integrates key optical and electro-optical components. These individual components are currently used to lock a ...

  7. Highly Efficient, Compact, Wavelength Converters for Pulsed and CW Laser Sources Used in Lidar-Based Remote Sensing and Ranging Systems

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: S602

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will demonstrate the feasibility of fabricating waveguides in stoichiometric lithium tantalite (SLT) for highly efficient, quasi-phase matched (QPM) frequency conversion of continuous wave and high peak-power, quasi-continuous laser sources used in lidar-based remote sensing and ranging applications. The key innovation in this effort is the u ...

  8. Miniature Carbon Dioxide Sensor for Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems

    SBC: Anasphere, Inc            Topic: S603

    There is a growing need to develop improved technologies for precise airborne measurements of carbon dioxide, CO2. CO2 measurements are of great importance to many areas of research, including climate change, global carbon budgets, and geological research in relation to volcanic activity. At the same time, we are entering a period of time in which Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) are becoming mor ...

  9. Automated Feature Extraction from Hyperspectral Imagery

    SBC: Visual Learning Systems, Inc.            Topic: S701

    The proposed activities will result in the development of a novel hyperspectral feature-extraction toolkit that will provide a simple, automated, and accurate approach to materials classification from hyperspectral imagery (HSI). The proposed toolkit will be built as an extension to the state-of-the-art technology in automated feature extraction (AFE), the Feature Analyst software suite, which wa ...

  10. Concept of Operations Storyboarding Tool

    SBC: S&K Technologies, Inc.            Topic: X502

    The purpose of this project is to develop a storyboard tool to assist with the generation, verification, and refinement of storyboard information and its subsequent translation into model data for systems analysis and design tools. The most important contribution is an improved communication of the concept of operation between prospective customers and system developers. It addresses the difficu ...
