Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Defense
Topic: AF141-106
Budget: 08/01/16 - 07/31/18
PI: Erik Mumm

The 2011 launches of ORS-1and TacSat-4 have demonstrated the feasibility to rapidly deploy spacecraft. These successes and progress on the Modular Space Vehicle, along with standardization (Space Plug and Play Architecture) continue to show promise in a responsive space architecture focused on modularity and reconfigurability. There is a need to...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S4.05
Budget: 04/27/16 - 04/26/18

The goal of this project is to develop hermetic sealing technologies which can be used for the return of samples from planetary bodies such as Mars, the Moon, Comets and Asteroids, with a primary focus on induction brazing as a means of sealing a Mars Sample Return Orbiting Sample (OS) after it has been recovered by the MSR Orbiter spacecraft. ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: H1.01
Budget: 04/20/16 - 04/19/18

In Situ Resource Utilization (ISRU) or ?living off the land relies on exploiting local resources and in turn reducing burden of transporting supplies. NASA has determined through various studies that ISRU will be critical for both robotic and human exploration of the Solar System. ISRU is also viewed by commercial Space companies as a significan...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S3.09
Budget: 06/17/15 - 12/17/15

Honeybee Robotics proposes to miniaturize a heritage spaceflight motor controller using System-in-Package technology. This motor controller will be a universal solution for the control of BLDC, PMSM, and microstepping motors in robotic space systems and orbital instruments, with a form factor at least 75% smaller than comparable units.

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: H1.01
Budget: 06/17/15 - 12/17/15

Under previous SBIR Phase 1, we demonstrated MISME system to TRL 3. This system can be used on Mars, the Moon, as well as Asteroids (a Spider concept with self- anchoring approach was developed). We propose to focus this Phase I on the two approaches of water extraction: Sniffer and Corer. At the end of the Phase 1, we will trade all 3: Sniffer,...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Central Florida

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T4.02
Budget: 06/17/15 - 06/17/16

The paradigm of exploration is changing. Smaller, smarter, and more efficient systems are being developed that could do as well as large, expensive, and heavy systems in the past. The 'science' fiction becomes reality fueled by advances in computing, materials, and nano-technology. These new technologies found their way into CubeSats – a booming...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S1.06
Budget: 06/17/15 - 12/17/15

To accurately determine endogenic heat flow, both thermal gradient and thermal conductivity measurements are needed. The thermal gradient measurement can be achieved by using several temperature sensors equally spaced along the length of the probe. Thermal conductivity can be measured by one of two methods: the 'steady state' method or the 'tran...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S4.05
Budget: 06/17/15 - 12/17/15
PI: Phil Chu

The goal of the Phase I is to perform breadboarding and testing of the promising sealing techniques as well as perform a system level study to determine implementation challenges within actual mission architectures. The tests will be conducted on clean and 'dirty' seals. The results of the Phase I will be one or more options for hermetic sealing...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T4.02
Budget: 06/16/15 - 06/15/17

In Phase 2 we will develop a fully integrated, autonomous free-flying robotic system based on a commercial SkyJib quadcopter, and demonstrate flying straight and level to a target location, acquisition of rock and regolith samples, and return to the point of origin. The work plan for Phase 2 is as follows: 1. Completion of the Guidance, Navigat...
