Award List:

SPA-S Cubesat Bus

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Donald Fronterhouse, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $99,946.00
Abstract:
New smallsat concepts are gaining acceptance as viable space systems capable of providing useful, cost effective scientific and military data. These small satellites (NanoSats) range from 4 kg Cubesats to 50 kg smallsats. NanoSats have the potential to be deployed to provide a relevant capability… More

Utilizing xTEDS to Automate the Bus and Payload Checkout Process

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Kenneth Center, Director of Software Technologies
Award Amount: $99,985.00
Abstract:
The process of readying a satellite for its operational service role once deployed from the launch vehicle can be an extremely time consuming process when employing traditional approaches - particularly for complex imaging sensors that require the manipulation of many controls to converge on the… More

Innovative Modular Propulsion for Multi-Mission Space Vehicles

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Don Fronterhouse, Principal Investigator – (505) 503-1563
Award Amount: $149,931.00
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: Early spacecraft were very expensive and took many years to painstakingly develop. The high cost and infrequency of space launches fostered a culture of exquisite performance at exquisite prices. With space access and usage becoming more prevalent, the modern metrics of development speed… More

Easy-to-Employ Satellite and Space System Robustness

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Ken Center, Software Director – (505) 503-1563
Award Amount: $149,998.00
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: Investing in innovation that moves toward the widespread use of satellite autonomy has the potential to yield significant benefits to the space situational awareness (SSA) community. Most notably, if satellite platforms have the ability to detect and respond to events without exchanging… More

Innovative Modular Propulsion for Multi-Mission Space Vehicles

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Don Fronterhouse, Sr. Scientist – (505) 503-1563
Award Amount: $739,902.00
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: This program develops a Modular Propulsion system design and demonstration test bed that continues the efforts of the Phase I program that established the feasibility of a green propellant based modular propulsion system. Two reduced toxicity propellants will be considered: LMP-103S and… More

Enhancing the Utility of Hosted Payloads Using MOSA Approaches

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Ken Center, Software Director – (505) 503-1563
Award Amount: $149,996.00
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: Incorporating hosted payloads onto satellites deployed for other primary missions is an approach that has the potential to provide benefits to both the hosted payload user community and the host satellite providers. But getting rides to space and accommodation on a dedicated satellite bus… More
