Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 12-1-E3.02
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

The Phase I objective is to develop a preliminary design and manufacturing plan for carbon fiber composite reflectors and/or a carbon fiber telescope that are traceable to the requirements of current and future CMB missions. The Phase II objectives are to complete the design and manufacturing planning, fabricate necessary tooling, manufacture h...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 12-1-H8.04
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

NASA needs lower cost solar arrays with high performance for a variety of missions. While high efficiency, space-qualified solar cells are in themselves costly,>$250/Watt, there is considerable additional cost associated with the parts and labor needed to integrate the Photovoltaic Assembly. The standard approach has evolved with only minor chan...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF093-092
Budget: 02/21/12 - 04/17/14

ABSTRACT: Thin film solar arrays using advanced Inverted Metamorphic solar cells can offer a significant increase in efficiency and specific power over conventional planar solar arrays for future spacecraft. The flexible low-mass solar cells require an equally flexible robust replacement to the conventional coverglass technology to fully realiz...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-2-X8.04
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

Thin, flexible, and highly efficient solar arrays are needed that package compactly for launch and deploy into large, structurally stable high power generators. Inverted Metamorphic Multi-junction (IMM) solar cells can enable these arrays, offering higher efficiencies of>33% and lower mass and flexibility, but integration challenges of this thi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 11-1-S2.03
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

This project proposes to develop an occulter optical edge and optical edge measurement verification system suitable for astrophysics missions including JWST and the Occulting Ozone Observatory (O3). The optical edge has tight cross-section requirements in order to produce the correct diffraction as light passes over the edge. It is also of imp...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF083-201
Budget: 09/07/11 - 12/02/13

ABSTRACT: This SBIR develops and fabricates flight-quality solar modules that utilize advanced thin-film photovoltaic devices for use in a potential flight experiment. The photovoltaic assembly design is based on previous work done by DRT with thin-film solar cells and features an integrated manufacturing approach, advanced covershield material...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-1-X8.04
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

Inverted Metamorphic (IMM) solar cells have achieved high efficiency at very low mass, but integration of the thin crystalline photovoltaic device into a flexible panel has been a challenge. The objectives of this SBIR are to mechanically package the IMM cell into a flexible laminated panel, and to assemble modular building blocks of these pane...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD10-EP2
Budget: 12/20/10 - 06/20/11

DR Technologies, Inc. will begin development of a rugged, collapsible solar concentration device to support tactical alternative energy production. The concentrator will be designed to be high-accuracy, modular, field-replaceable, lightweight, and manufacturable. Phase I work will focus on the design of the concentrator to meet the above goals...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A08-029
Budget: 08/10/10 - 08/30/12

A six month program was executed with the goal of developing a novel thermally conductive composite material utilizing TLPS resin formulations created by Creative Electron, of San Marcos, CA, and composites design and manufacturing expertise from DR Technologies, Inc., of San Diego, CA, to develop a through thickness enhanced thermal conductivit...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Arizona State University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N10A-T021
Budget: 06/28/10 - 04/30/11

The proposed STTR will demonstrate how magnetic meta materials based antennas are ideal for integration into composite structures where the graphite composite backplanes can be integrated with dielectric ballistic protection materials that surround, yet do not interfere with the antenna. In ongoing research we have shown such antennas can approa...
