Award List:

Canisterized Satellite Development for Operationally Responsive Space

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Gregory Sanford, Principal Engineer
Award Amount: $99,173.00
Abstract:
Improving access to space is of particular importance to the Operationally Responsive Space (ORS) Office as it strives to quickly fulfill the needs of the warfighter. Typically, each spacecraft launch is treated as a unique mission requiring in-depth analyses, design, manufacturing, and… More

Canisterized Satellite Development for Operationally Responsive Space

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Greg Sanford, Principal Engineer – (505) 270-1915
Award Amount: $2,605,510.00
Abstract:
This effort will develop a universal launch system for use on launch vehicles specific to ORS needs. The system will include a payload adapter that provides standardized interfaces for the equivalent of eight (8) 3U CubeSat dispensers. In addition, the system will afford the ability to launch… More

Thermal Control for Operationally Responsive Space (ORS) Satellites

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD

Award Amount: $99,943.00
Abstract:
The objective is to provide a robust thermal control subsystem (TCS) design focused on overcoming the unique challenges of Responsive Space (RS). The proposed TCS design will be based on state-of-the-art technologies including: variable emissivity devices, variable heat transfer layers, and advanced… More

Thermal Control for Operationally Responsive Space (ORS) Satellites

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Derek Hengeveld, Senior Engineer – (605) 690-1612
Award Amount: $2,428,207.00
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: This effort will provide both a rapid, satellite thermal modeling tool and deployable radiator system specific to Responsive Space needs. The thermal analysis tool will allow users to make rapid decisions and apply appropriate hardware from a specific RS thermal toolbox. The deployable… More
