Award List:

An Incremental Approach to Small Launch Vehicle Technology Development

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: John M. Garvey, Project Manager
Award Amount: $95,000.00
Abstract:
The implementation of small satellite architectures and satellite micro-miniaturization technologies has been inhibited due to the lack of responsive, cost-effective, user-friendly Spacelift solutions that specifically address this market. Newtechnologies, including some of those being developed… More

Demonstration and Analysis of Reusable Launch Vehicle Operations

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: John Garvey, Project Manager
Award Amount: $95,136.00
Abstract:
The increased use of reusable systems continues to be one of the most promising options for creating advancements in the daily maintenance of rocket systems, lowering hours for preparation and diminishing expenses for preparation. However, since the end of the DC-X/XA Delta Clipper program, flight… More

Flight Testing of Wireless Networking for Nanosat Launch Vehicles

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: John Garvey, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $99,683.00
Abstract:
The innovation proposed here addresses the testing and evaluation of wireless networking technologies for small launch vehicles by leveraging existing nanosat launch vehicle (NLV) development to create a dedicated wireless technologies testbed that can enter flight during Phase I. The Phase I… More

Demonstration and Analysis of Reusable Launch Vehicle Operations

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: John M. Garvey, CEO / President
Award Amount: $1,017,417.00
Abstract:
We will begin Phase II by refurbishing the P-7 vehicle into the P-7D configuration to conduct flight tests that will pathfind ORS operations at remote launch sites. We will then develop a next-generation prototype reusable NLV first stage (the P-9) and then use it to conduct another set of rapid… More

Alternative Hydrocarbon Propulsion for Nano / Micro Launch Vehicle
