20 Awards Won

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N151-062
Budget: 07/06/15 - 05/06/16

DSSP proposes to modifying our novel and innovative Electrically-controlled Solid Propellant (ESP) for use as an electric liquid propellant for adaptation to a high performance, high mass fraction, non-toxic, low hazard liquid DACS monopropellant system. Since DSSP?s propellants are ignited by applied electrical power, simple inert electrodes an...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S3.02
Budget: 06/17/15 - 12/17/15

Digital Solid State Propulsion is proposing the development of a new liquid Pulsed Plasma Thruster (PPT) using its revolutionary HAN-based Green Electric Monopropellant (GEM) to enable spacecraft missions whose fulfillment requires the high specific impulse of conventional Telfon-fueled PPTs, but would like the flexibility in mission design that...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S3.02
Budget: 06/04/15 - 06/03/17

Today's CubeSats lack storable, green, safe propulsion options for complex science missions that may involve large Delta-V changes, proximity operations, and attitude control systems (ACS) for pointing, spin-up, and spin-down. Digital Solid State Propulsion (DSSP) is developing propulsion for CubeSats and will leverage existing research efforts ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA13-032
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

Continuously advancing ballistic missile threats require an interceptor missile system which has greater basing flexibility and highly advanced performance in terms of burnout velocity and Divert and Attitude Control (DACS). Liquid systems are the ideal candidate to fit this role because of higher performance than solids; however, they tend to ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF141-145
Budget: 07/29/14 - 04/24/15

ABSTRACT: Digital Solid State Propulsion is proposing to develop an Electrically Variable Explosive (EVE) which, through direct electrical control, will provide on-demand sensitization and throttling for enhanced energy output in explosive fills. EVEs are based upon DSSP s Electric Solid Propellant (ESP) Technology which has demonstrated modifie...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 14-1-S3.02
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

Small satellites such as CubeSats are in need of responsive propulsion, but are limited due to their size. Though single pulse, AP/HTPB fueled solid rocket motors exist in the market, greater mission flexibility is to be had from a motor with the capability of a second ignition in the same volume constraints. Digital Solid State Propulsion (DSSP...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF141-137
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

ABSTRACT: Digital Solid State Propulsion is proposing to develop a Divert and Attitude Control System (DACS) for tactical air superiority missiles, using proprietary Electric Solid Propellants (ESPs). Unlike conventional propellants, ESPs can be ignited with electric power applied through inert electrodes within the propellant grain itself, whi...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA11-025
Budget: 08/19/13 - 08/20/15

Our Precision Attitude Control System (PACS) delivers high precision attitude control for Kinetic Weapon (KW) long range target discrimination and acquisition. The PACS utilizes electrically-controlled solid propellant (ESP), an innovative propulsion technology that enables fast burn rate control, throttling, and extinguishment of thrusters, sim...
