Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF083-212
Budget: 04/16/10 - 07/06/12

Sest, Inc. has made significant progress during Phase I effort to perform feasibility study, conceptual development and modeling techniques for the development of a full-scale reliability based Spacecraft Prognostic Health Management System (SPHMS) based on the physics of failure, actual failure data (past experience, ground tests), real time pe...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF083-212
Budget: 02/20/09 - 02/19/10

Development of a full-scale reliability based Prognostic Health Management (PHM) models/algorithms that are based on the physics of failure and actual failure data (past experience, ground tests) and integrate them into real time software tool for the health monitoring of the satellite payload systems is proposed. The predictive prognostic model...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-264
Budget: 03/07/07 - 05/22/09

Assuring success in all aspects of critical DoD missions is becoming dominated by the availability of high performance sensors. There is a family of sensors that operate with very improved sensitivities if cooled to very low (cryogenic) temperatures. For such sensors a mechanical refrigeration system (cryocooler) is required for successful sens...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-264
Budget: 04/11/06 - 04/09/07

High performance sensors are playing an increasingly important role in all aspects of all critical DoD missions. There is a family of sensors that operate with improved sensitivities if cooled to very low (cryogenic) temperatures. For these sensors a mechanical refrigeration system (cryocooler) is required. Sest Inc. proposes to develop a full-s...

Phase 2 SBIR

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

Studies of potential space missions have highlighted the need for very small electric power supplies for a variety of applications. The light weight radioisotope heat unit (RHU) offers a long-life, reliable energy source for such systems which is independent of the surrounding environmental conditions, but a device is needed to convert radioiso...

Phase 1 SBIR

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

Sest, Inc. proposes to perform a detailed evaluation at the both convertor and component levels of a small, low electrical output power (50 to 500 mW) Stirling cycle based convertor utilizing light weight radioisotope heater units (LWRHU) as the heat source. The proposed milliwatt radioisotope Stirling convertor (MRSC) will be optimized for outp...
