Award List:

Matched and Ultra-Low CTE Optical Materials

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Research Institution: SOUTH DAKOTA SCHOOL OF MINES
Principal Investigator: Paul A. Gierow, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $99,985.00
RI Contact: Shelia Lien
Abstract:
A new material and processing technology is proposed that will dramatically reduce the cost of manufacturing lightweight mirrors for optical test applications. Such precision mirrors are also required for surveillance, directed energy, and DoD-sponsored space programs. There is a significant amount… More

Deployable Satcom Terminal for Ground-based Midcourse Defense (GMD)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Principal Investigator: Paul A. Gierow, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $148,870.00
Abstract:
Establishing a high data rate telecommunications system in remote locations in Alaska is a significant challenge involving a host of architecture options and technical challenges. High data rates from the remote site require either high transmit power or very high antenna gain with very precise… More

Novel CORIN Materials and Advanced Coating Processes for Space Environment Polybenzoxazole Protection

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / OSD
Principal Investigator: Paul A. Gierow, President
Award Amount: $99,438.00
Abstract:
Deployable space structures are becoming increasingly important assets for use in the battlefield. Communications, global positioning, unmanned air vehicles and tracking and surveillance of enemy troops are creating an enormous demand for space borne assets. Structures that can package efficiently… More

Deployable Satcom Terminal for Ground-based Midcourse Defense (GMD)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Principal Investigator: Paul A. Gierow, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $1,249,928.00
Abstract:
A deployable communications terminal design has been demonstrated under the MDA Phase I SBIR. This design allows for multi-data communications at GMD locations for secure data transmission, as well as non-secure data transmission for "quality-of-life" communications and data flow. These systems may… More

Matched and Ultra-Low CTE Optical Materials

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / STTR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Research Institution: MONTANA STATE UNIV.
Principal Investigator: Paul A. Gierow, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $750,000.00
RI Contact: Sandy Sward
Abstract:
A new material and processing technology has been developed and demonstrated that will dramatically reduce the cost of manufacturing and refurbishing large aluminum based mirrors for optical test applications. Such precision mirrors are also required for surveillance, directed energy, cryo-vacuum… More

Novel CORIN Materials and Advanced Coating Processes

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / OSD
Principal Investigator: Paul A. Gierow, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $745,465.00
Abstract:
During Phase I, Our Team successfully designed and synthesized a novel Colorless Organic/Inorganic Nanocomposite polyimide (CORIN) material that offers UV, VUV, and AO protection of underlying structures. Additionally, we designed and implemented a coating process for applying the material to… More

4-meter Class Inflatable Antenna

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Paul Gierow, President/CEO – (256) 382-1334
Award Amount: $1,497,977.00
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: The technical objective of this Phase II SBIR is to develop and test a 4-meter class inflatable Satellite Communications(SATCOM) antenna terminal in Ku-band. This effort will focus on maturing the component technologies involved with radome material selection, Ku-band RF feed and feed… More
