Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: A1.03
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/09/16

This is a proposal to develop a unique, gated, picosecond, digital holography system for characterizing dense particle fields in high pressure combustion environments; a critical requirement clearly defined in the NASA solicitation. Most imaging methods fail to provide this capability because noise from multiple scattering buries the signal need...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: H10.02
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/09/16

An instrument is proposed for non-intrusive measurements of velocity in the plume of a large rocket engine of the type used in the first or second stage of a launch vehicle. The method is laser-based and has the potential for standoff distances in the tens of meters, so optical components can be a safe distance from the hot gases. The diagnostic...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: H7.02
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/09/16

Three diagnostic methods are proposed for measuring properties of interest in the post-shock regions of a hypersonic bow shock wave that is used for studying planetary entry and earth reentry flows. Shock location is measured using an imaging approach by laser Rayleigh scattering from molecules, shock velocity is measured by beam deflection via ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S1.07
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/09/16

To measure the broad size range of 0.1 micron to 200 micron, we propose an optical instrument that combines two techniques: Forward scattering light intensity (FSLI) and digital holography (DH). FSLI will provide the size and concentration of particles in the 0.1 to 5 micron range while DH will provide the size, concentration and shape of partic...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: H7.02
Budget: 05/03/16 - 05/02/18

A suite of pulsed laser diagnostics is proposed for studying aspects of planetary entry and Earth atmospheric reentry in arc jets. For example, dissociation of molecules impacts the flow-field physics, including surface heat flux and catalytic surface reactions. Results obtained during the Phase I effort point to three promising diagnostic techn...

Phase 2 STTR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 07d
Budget: 07/27/15 - 07/26/17

New automotive engine technologies, such as direct injection with stratified charge combustion, are being explored under programs of the DOE and others that offer significant increases in efficiency and reductions in emissions. Research tools are needed to help determine how best to adequately control the combustion process throughout the engine...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF141-063
Budget: 07/14/15 - 10/20/17

ABSTRACT:A non-destructive optical sensor and a computational model for quantifying and predicting damage caused by silica particle ingestion in gas turbine engines are proposed. The sensor is based on optical coherence tomography (OCT), which in Phase I was shown to be sensitive to infiltration of calcium magnesium alumino-silicate (CMAS) into ...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: The Ohio State University

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF15-AT38
Budget: 07/09/15 - 04/12/16

ABSTRACT: An unseeded measurement technique is proposed for simultaneous spatially-resolved measurements of density, temperature, and velocity in hypersonic wind tunnel flows with the future potential for time-resolved measurement capability. A variant of filtered Rayleigh scattering (FRS) will be developed that takes advantage of unique monoton...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: H7.02
Budget: 06/17/15 - 12/17/15

A suite of laser-based diagnostics is proposed to measure velocity and temperature simultaneously using unseeded techniques in high enthalpy flows relevant to reentry flight. The two main types of regions that are found in a typical hypersonic flow field around a vehicle are addressed by developing separate diagnostics for each. In regions far f...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 19a
Budget: 02/17/15 - 11/16/15

The problem is to develop a compact instrument to measure cloud droplet-drizzle in the range of 10 to 1,000 m from unmanned airborne vehicles (UAVs) (such as the ScanEagle or Puma) in the Arctic and Antarctic regions. As stated in the SBIR solicitation, traditional packages are too large and heavy for this application. The instrument should have...
