Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF151-073
Budget: 08/18/15 - 05/19/16

ABSTRACT:ASTS, along with our Aerojet Rocketdyne commercialization partner, are pleased to present this proposed project to demonstrate feasibility of using specialized computational fluid dynamics (CFD) tools for predicting the behavior of flow interactions in a modular aerospike rocket engine. Our project will examine the flowfield between ad...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S4.03
Budget: 06/17/15 - 12/17/15

ASTS is pleased to propose to demonstrate the feasibility of using an aerospike nozzle to provide a dramatic increase in payload capability to the two-stage, all-solid-propulsion Mars Ascent Vehicle (MAV). The aerospike features a well-known altitude compensation capability, but the MAV operates in near-vacuum conditions so cannot take advantag...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA09-001
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15
PI: Mike Lyon

Arctic Slope Technical Services is pleased to present this proposal for the development of a low cost thater ballilstic missile target that uses an advanced, high performance storable propellant rocket engine. Our modular aerospike engine is capable of achieving significantly higher nozzle area ratios than traditional bell nozzles, when designe...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF141-086
Budget: 06/18/14 - 03/13/15

ABSTRACT: The current roll control system for the Minuteman III First Stage motor is heavy. A lightweight, easily detachable system would offer considerable advantages. A solid propellant Roll Control System solution is proposed that uses modern propellants, advanced thrusters, and improved control algorithms to offer a propulsion system that is...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 14-1-S4.03
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

The Mars ascent vehicle (MAV) is required to endure a long space transit time, high-g loading during planetary entry, and high launch loads, all at low temperatures of approximately -40 Deg C. Additionally, low-temperature motors like the MAV are often tested at room temperature, since testing at temperatures of -40 Deg C or lower is both diff...
