Hardware and Software Upgrades for the Libera Brilliance+ BPM System
• A cross bar switch is used to compensate channel to channel differences and drifts • Disturbances from the BPM pickup to BPM electronics are not compensated • Cross bar switch moved to an external module; tunnel installation is foreseen • RF cables become part of the processing chain • BPM module provides power and control to the external switch module
TXC-200 Nanosatellite X-band Transmitter
TXC-200 is a high-speed X-band data downlink transmitter for microsatellite, CubeSat, launch vehicle, and airborne missions. It is a compact but powerful solution for next-generation spacecraft missions. Aimed for the rising NewSpace era, the TXC-200 solves the problem of the large amount of data on-board the spacecraft. Furthermore, it enables real-time 4K, or multi HD video streams from the launch vehicles, aircraft, or UAV systems to ground stations.
Progress Report on the Spacecraft Atmosphere Monitor’s Development Model – California Institute of Technology, Jet Propulsion Laboratory
The Spacecraft Atmosphere Monitor (S.A.M.) is a miniature gas chromatograph (GC) mass spectrometer (MS) intended for assessing trace volatile organic compounds and the major constituents in the atmosphere of present (the International Space Station) and future crewed spacecraft. As such, S.A.M. will continuously sample concentrations of major air constituents (CH 4 , H 2 O, N 2 , O 2 , and CO 2 ) and report results in two-second intervals. The S.A.M. is a technology demonstration planned to launch in 2018 and we report here on recent developments taking place in building a testbed and development model of the instrument. The S.A.M. is mechanically designed to operate under hi-G loads present during launch events and can operate at sub-atmospheric pressures relevant to extra-vehicular activities. Total instrument mass is projected at 9.5 kg with power consumption estimated at 35 W. The S.A.M. instrument will provide on-demand reporting on trace volatile organic compounds (VOC) at ppm to ppb levels of 40+ species relevant for astronaut health.

Libera Book 2021
The accelerator community knows us as the Libera folks. It looks like we’ve left an impression since our story began back in 2003. Since then, nine out of ten synchrotron light sources around the world have been equipped with our Libera beam position stabilization systems. But Libera is much more than just the sum of its products. It means the best possible performance for the price. It means innovation, quality, and reliability. It means long-term support. It is the relationships we have nurtured over the years with our customers that we cherish most. Libera products seamlessly combine hardware and software into powerful instruments that measure a variety of beam parameters. Those measurements are then used in feedback loops to optimize the performance of a particle accelerator. Different accelerators have different needs. However, through the reconfigurability and modularity of Libera instruments, we can accommodate a variety of end-user requirements. Libera instruments are developed and manufactured by the Instrumentation Technologies Company. Established in 1998, the business has grown from a garage-based start-up to an established company known for its Libera and Red Pitaya products, and for launching the Center of Excellence for Biosensors, Instrumentation and Process Control (COBIK).
