Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S3.04
Budget: 06/13/16 - 12/13/17

The Cryogenic Encapsulating Launch Shroud and Insulated Upper Stage (CELSIUS) innovative layered system combines functions of Multi-Layer Insulation (MLI), Micro-Meteoroid and Orbital Debris (MMOD) protection, and fairing functions (exposure to free stream) into a deterministic soft-goods system that provides far greater performance for far less...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Texas Tech University

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T6.03
Budget: 06/10/16 - 06/10/17

Paragon Space Development Corporation and our partner Research Institution Texas Tech University (TTU) propose to develop a spacecraft habitat wastewater recycling system that integrates 1) the TTU Membrane Aerated Biological Reactor (MABR), 2) Nafion Membrane Water Purification (NWP) distillation technology, and 3) gas-phase trace contaminant r...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: H2.04
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/09/16

Paragon Space Development Corporation and Thin Red Line Aerospace (TRLA) propose a unique solution that thermally isolates the upper stage rocket from a payload on orbit while still providing adequate structural connection for orbital maneuvers. Cryogenic fluids such as LH2 and LOX are ideal upper stage propellants because of their high specific...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: H2.04
Budget: 06/17/15 - 12/17/15

Paragon Space Development Corporation (Paragon) and our subcontractor, Thin Red Line Aerospace (TRLA) propose a unique solution for an inflated shroud system that provides launch, ascent, on-orbit, and transit protection to a large cryogenic tank. The system consist of an outer inflated shroud that surrounds nested, concentric integrated ballis...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Chemical and Biological Defense Program
Topic: CBD12-106
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

In Phase I RANCOR successfully demonstrated an innovative enabling humidity control technology to provide very low humidity air to water sensitive, fully reusable CO2 adsorbents. The use of adsorbents enables complete reusability/rechargability and reduces the total heat load on the SCBA to the point where ice or other cooling systems will no l...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: CBD02-201
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

Terrorist attacks (e.g. USS Cole, chemical and biological warfare) and accident recovery (e.g. TWA 800, Ehime Maru) can require extensive Navy dive operations in contaminated, hazardous environments. However, current diving equipment was not designed to operate in such conditions, much less protect divers from exposure to contaminants in the wat...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 12-2-H1.01
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

Paragon Space Development Corporation (Paragon) and ENrG Incorporated (ENrG) are teaming to provide a highly efficient reactor for carbon monoxide/carbon dioxide (CO/CO2) conversion into methane (CH4). The system is a gravity-independent, compact, leak-tight, Solid Oxide Electrolyzer (SOE) system with embedded Sabatier reactors (ESR). Applying C...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Special Operations Command
Topic: SOCOM14-005
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

Paragon Space Development Corporation will provide SOCOM with a low-cost, conformal, closed-loop cooling system that is highly resistant to damage and provides superior cooling performance to existing raw water cooling alternatives. This proposed innovation is simple to manufacture, retrofit, and in its final form, is anticipated to entail littl...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 14-1-H8.01
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

Paragon Space Development Corporation® (Paragon) will advance our Solid Oxide Electrolysis / embedded Sabatier reactors (SOE/ESR) system to generate power from its oxygen (O2) and methane (CH4) products. Leveraging our SOE/ESR technology, Paragon can offer a carbon deposition resistant system capable of internally steam reforming CH4and generati...
