20 Awards Won

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 12-1-H2.01
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

The proposed load-bearing, tank-applied, multi-layer insulation system consists of a set of highly reflective radiation shields made from 1 mil thick aluminized Mylar that is supported from a "pop-up tent like" support frame. In addition, the support frame carries the mass of an actively cooled shield and outer MLI blanket enabling ultra low he...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 12-1-S3.02
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

Sierra Lobo proposes to develop a technology that can provide both cooling and electric power generation using heat. When coupled with a radioisotope heat source, the technology is ideally suited to the needs of a long-lived Venus lander. The heat source powers Sierra Lobo's Thermoacoustic Stirling Heat Engine (TASHE), which is directly couple...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N121-060
Budget: 06/20/12 - 12/20/12

The Navy has stated a need for a backup cryogenic cooling method for shipboard superconducting systems. The cooling method must be as compact as practical and should operate without consumables even if power is lost for an extended period. Ideally, the backup cooling method should take advantage of the energy associated with a phase change. One ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A09-049
Budget: 04/18/11 - 04/15/13

High-g testing through controlled deceleration has proven to be a key to the successful development of electronics that must survive gun launch. The need for this type of testing is expected to continue as the Army is driven to greater precision to reduce collateral damage, with several programs pursuing advanced Precision Guided Munitions (PGMs...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Hawaii at Manoa

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 09-2-T10.01
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

GHe reclamation is critical in reducing operating costs at rocket engine test facilities. Increases in cost and shortages of helium will dramatically impact testing of rocket engines for launch vehicles and space propulsion systems as the global supply of this non-renewable element diminishes. Extremely large quantities of helium are being use...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-1-O3.07
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

NASA has identified in-space cryogenic fluid management (CFM) as a high priority for technology development because the construction of an in-space propellant infrastructure is anticipated to dramatically decrease costs across a broad spectrum of missions. This importance is reflected in the designation of CFM as a Flagship Technology Demonstra...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Hawaii at Manoa

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-1-T10
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

The ability to restore large amounts of vented gaseous helium (GHe) at rocket test sites preserves the GHe and reduces operating cost. The used GHe is vented into the atmosphere, is non-recoverable, and costs NASA millions dollars per year. Helium, which is non-renewable and irreplaceable once released into the atmosphere, is continuously cons...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A09-049
Budget: 12/03/09 - 05/30/10

High-g testing through controlled deceleration has proven to be a key to the successful development of electronics that must survive gun launch. A magnetic method of deceleration has been widely implemented in a related commercial application (amusement park rides), because magnetic braking has the advantages of simplicity, low-maintenance cost...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 08-1
Budget: 01/01/08 - 12/31/08

The ability to store large amounts of cryogenic fluids for long durations has a profound effect on the success of many future space programs using these fluids for propellants, reactants, and life support systems. The high cost of delivering payload mass to orbit will require storage systems capable of limiting cryogenic losses due to boil-off ...

Phase 1 SBIR

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

Application of the proposed technology (an affordable, large-scale, high-efficiency, low-temperature pulse tube cryocooler system), serves two NASA needs: an improved cryogenic propellant conditioning method and an economical technique to maintain the lowest possible liquid propellant feed temperature. These needs exist at a variety of NASA fac...
