Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 06-1
Budget: 01/01/06 - 12/31/06

An innovative structures concept has been developed that uses space qualified flexible thin film polyimide to produce ultra-lightweight inflation deployed self-rigidizing structural components with very small packaging volume and extremely high buckling/bending strength to accurately deploy and provide precision assembly of modular space systems...

Phase 2 SBIR

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

Long duration space missions and extended manned missions on the surface of the moon and Mars are key elements of NASA's new Vision. These missions will require utilization of in situ resources and materials to reduce up-mass and up-volume and for fabricating habitable structures from in situ materials. The overall objective of this Phase II is ...

Phase 1 SBIR

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

Relatively small concentric thin film FRESNEL lenses and fresnel-like Multiple Parabolic Reflecting Surface (MPRS) reflectors have been successfully produced from molds machined with diamond turning lathes, which are limited in size to less than 15 feet diameter. This size limitation prevents using this fabrication method for production of mold...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 04-1
Budget: 01/01/04 - 12/31/04

Ultra-lightweight membranes may prove to be very attractive for large aperture systems, but their value will be fully realized only if they are mated with equally high strength, low-mass support structures. The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of a new innovative structure concept using space qualified flexible thin f...

Phase 1 SBIR

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

Solar sails that have the inherent stiffness to greatly reduce or eliminate the need for tensioning while retaining low areal densities and compact stowage offer enabling capability for multiple missions in the Sun-Earth Connection Space Science theme. Polyimide film materials that are resistant to the space environment will be used to demonstra...

Phase 1 SBIR

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

Membrane mirrors constructed from materials that can withstand the space environment, have low thermal expansion, small mass, and compact stowage volume offer enabling technology for large space-based telescope systems. United Applied Technologies has demonstrated the feasibility and scaleability of the basic manufacturing processes for producin...

Phase 1 SBIR

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

The primary objective of Phase I was to determine the feasibility of demonstrating critical subsystems and components of thermophotovoltaic (TPV) and thermionic (TI) power systems that use thin-film solar concentrators. Based on design, performance, and technology readiness evaluations, key hardware elements were identified for both electrical, ...

Phase 1 SBIR

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

The primary objective of the Phase I work was to determine the feasibility of manufacturing inflatable preshaped polyimide film structures that have the inherent thermal stability and structural strength to meet requirements of large space systems without internal pressurization or other rigidization. The feasibility of the scalable, low-cost ma...
