Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: H5.02
Budget: 05/28/15 - 11/27/16

The main goal in Phase II will be to develop several prototypes of the Ultra-FAST boom that is needed as the Trunk beam in the 300 kW GRA Solar Electric Propulsion (SEP). The target bending strength requirement will be twice of the SRTM ADAMS truss (2 x 0.04 g). Also, with the help of our subcontractor, High Strain Dynamics, L.Garde plans to st...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA13-013
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

An end-to-end battlespace space weather mission planning, simulation, and operations capability with effects on microelectronics will be developed. The new capability will provide accurate characterization of missile trajectory scenarios through the space weather environment. The capability will use the latest advances in space weather operati...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 14-1-H5.02
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

L?Garde will develop a lightweight Ultra-Flexible Advanced Stiffness Truss (Ultra-FAST) that will prove to have greater material metrics and structural performance indices than the current state of the art for large space deployable trusses. The key to the success of the proposed technology has to do with the new design approach and new material...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF121-209
Budget: 05/14/12 - 02/14/13

ABSTRACT: The sensitivity of tactical mid-wave imaging sensors has been shown to be extremely sensitive to background temperature. In our approach we cool down a 1m x 1m panel with a hole at its center through which a blackbody cavity simulator can radiate through. The front panel and blackbody cavity temperatures are controlled independently...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A10-109
Budget: 11/17/11 - 11/16/12

Base camp heat or infrared (IR) signatures can allow enemy units to easily determine the location of camps, the presence of personnel and electronic equipment within the camp, the type of activities occurring within the camp, and their operational tempo (OPTEMPO). Low-observability or camouflaging by reducing the heat or IR signature can reduce ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-1-S2.03
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

The proposed innovation is for the development of a thermally-stable composite made of carbon fibers and elastomeric resin. This combination of materials will allow a composite with higher stiffness and strain compared with materials currently in use for space. The significance of this innovation is that the proposed material will enable more ca...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A10-109
Budget: 11/22/10 - 05/22/11

There is a need for base camps to reduce their heat signature to maintain a low-observable (or stealth) capabilities. Without masking the heat signature, enemy units can easily determine the location of base camps, presence of personnel and electronic equipment within the camp, as well as the type of activities occurring within the camp and OPTE...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N093-223
Budget: 07/14/10 - 01/14/11

In this Phase I effort, L''Garde will establish the feasibility of using a netted trap with integrated solar sail to capture and deorbit high-payoff space debris from high and medium Earth orbits. A subscale model of the trap will be built and tested. The high-payoff debris is a hundred or so spent upper stages and dead satellites, suspected of ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF083-216
Budget: 03/29/10 - 06/01/12

A significant number of space launches, both government and commercial, have considerable mass margin that could be used by inserting an EELV Secondary Payload Adapter (ESPA) ring. This ring could be transformed into a standard spacecraft bus with capability to add up to six different payloads or be utilized as a spacecraft itself. The transfo...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF083-211
Budget: 02/04/10 - 04/04/12

L Garde is developing a new technology to enable the tensioning of planar phased array systems maintaining their planarity to within 1 mm overall out-of-plane deformation. This will mitigate the use of expensive and bulky metrology and RF compensation systems. The main objective of Phase II is to design and build a 2m x 5m tensioned phased array...
