Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-2-S2
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

Future X-ray telescopes require significant amounts of optical area. To accommodate this in a grazing incidence design, extremely thin mirrors are formed in concentric shell configurations. A slumping technique has been demonstrated with such thin, lightweight shells. However, the optical surface is found to contain a significant amount of mid-s...

Topic: 09-1
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 08-1
Budget: 01/01/08 - 12/31/08

The Reactive Atom Plasma (RAPTM) process will be evaluated as a rapid and practical method for fabricating precision wedges in glass sheets. The glass sheets are to be slumped using the same process as developed by NASA for the next generation of X-ray telescopes. The wedged sheets are to serve as alignment spacers for the multi-segmented graz...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 06-2
Budget: 01/01/06 - 12/31/06

The proposed Phase II effort seeks to demonstrate a dramatic reduction of the manufacturing cost and cycle time of lightweight silicon carbide mirrors by substituting a novel reactive atom plasma (RAP) process for traditional hard tool grinding and lapping. We will use the RAP process (a plasma-based non-contact shaping tool) along with conventi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 05-1
Budget: 01/01/05 - 12/31/05

The proposed effort seeks to determine the feasibility of dramatically reducing the manufacturing cost and cycle time of lightweight silicon carbide mirrors by substituting a novel reactive atom plasma (RAP) process for traditional hard tool grinding and lapping. The RAP process employs an inductively coupled plasma torch with common gaseous flu...
