  1. Detecting the Onset of Fire in an Aircraft by Employing Correlation Spectroscopy Small Business Innovation Research Intelligent Optical Systems (IOS) Torrance, CA INNOVATION Detecting the onset of fire using a fiber laser operating in the near infrared, and a modulation system • ACCOMPLISHMENTS • Designed and fabricated a bright light source – a multi- line fiber laser using Bragg Grating filters • Developed modulators for the Bragg gratings that enhanced the sensitivity of the fire sensor • Detected carbon monoxide, an important fire marker, using the laser-based test setup Modulator Developed as Part of the IOS Fire Onset Detection System • COMMERCIALIZATION • Have attracted $140,000 of commercial funding • Forming a spinoff company, Optech Ventures, LLC, to commercialize this and other IOS technologies • Identifying target markets and potential partners • Employing three full-time staff members to develop and commercialize trace gas sensing technology • GOVERNMENT/SCIENCE APPLICATIONS • Can be used as an early warning of fire in the International Space Station, aerospace vehicles, airplanes, public and federal buildings, and subway stations • Other applications are protection of semiconductor fabrication facilities, power plants, industrial plants, naval assets, hospitals, schools, warehouses, chemical plants, and schools Glenn Research Center Human Habitability & Biology 3-093 1998 Phase II, NAS3-00016, 8/02 NASA Contact – Dr. Nancy D.
