Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: N093-223
Budget: 05/26/10 - 11/30/10

Our innovation is a low-cost method for removing orbital debris. We propose to remove debris from medium and high Earth orbits, as well as from LEO, and do it much more cheaply than conventional rockets. Our approach uses a combination of propellantless and high-Isp propulsion and high-power solar arrays to drive a robotic vehicle with nets to...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-241
Budget: 04/20/07 - 09/30/09

HAMAC is an innovative aircraft design that combines solar cells for power, fuel cells for energy storage, a high-altitude prop and electric motor with thrust vector control, and a morphing structural design that can take off conventionally, or be carried to altitude by rocket, aircraft, or balloon. HAMAC will provide an aerodynamically stable,...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-241
Budget: 06/13/06 - 06/13/07

HAMAC is an innovative aircraft design that combines solar cells for power, fuel cells for energy storage, a high-altitude prop and electric motor with thrust vector control, and a morphing structural design that fits compactly into an aircraft, rocket or balloon package for reaching altitude reliably. HAMAC will provide an aerodynamically stab...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF00-282
Budget: 07/16/01 - 08/16/03

This program will produce prototypes of aircraft wingtip treatments to reduce induced drag without increasing span of aircraft wings, and to reduce wind dynamic responses for improved ride. The advantages of conventional winglets have been demonstrated on transport aircraft and business jets. Phase I of this effort demonstrated that even great...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF99-062
Budget: 05/18/00 - 08/18/02

The Air Force needs an autonomous service vehicle to inspect, repair, upgrade, or refuel future satellites configured for on-orbit servicing. Star Technology and Research, Inc. examined the feasibility of such a vehicle powered by electrodynamic tether in Phase I of this effort, and found that the tether-powered service vehicle would be 2-4 tim...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF00-282
Budget: 05/03/00 - 03/03/01

This innovation applies multiple winglets to reduce induced drag without increasing the span of aircraft wings. The advantages of conventional single winglets have been demonstrated on transport aircraft and business jets, and new designs are now incorporating them. However, biologists have shown that the multiple, individually controlled wing...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF99-062
Budget: 04/30/99 - 04/10/99

The Air Force needs an autonomous service vehicle to inspect, repair, upgrade, or refuel future satellites configured for on-orbit servicing. Such a vehicle must be very low mass, with a high power output for electric propulsion. Conventional ion rockets or arcjets may not have the delta-V/mass ratio required for the mission. Star Technology and...
