Phase 1 SBIR

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

Numerous studies have concluded that increasing effectiveness of long-term storage of cryogenic liquid propellants, primarily LO2 and LH2, offers the largest single opportunity for reducing the mass and cost of associated space missions. The goal of this Phase I SBIR project is to evaluate and complete the preliminary design of an innovativ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S3.01
Budget: 04/18/16 - 04/17/18

We will build and test a stirling-cycle convertor for generating electrical power from the heat output of a radioisotope heat source (GPHS), addressing evolving NASA requirements for highly reliable, robust, and easily adaptable configurations for space-power applications. Our double-acting stirling cycle configuration combines a linear alterna...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S3.01
Budget: 06/17/15 - 12/17/15

NASA SBIR-2015 Topic S3.01 seeks to evaluate and advance Stirling convertors as a potentially more efficient alternative to the radioisotope-heated thermoelectric power generators used on some U.S. space missions. Most free-piston Stirling (FPS) convertors are piston-displacer machines that use complex gas bearing/ flexure strategies to manage ...
