Award List:

Low-Cost Deorbiting System

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Shane Stamm, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $99,998.00
Abstract:
Development of a mechanical de-orbiting system that can be attached to a DoD satellite asset as part of the initial mission planning can provide a means to safely and cost effectively de-orbit a satellite once it has completed its mission or if a de-orbit is required due to a failure of a key system… More

CubeSat Advanced Power and De-orbit Module

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Thomas J. Harvey, Chief Engineer
Award Amount: $99,993.00
Abstract:
MMA Design proposes to develop a low cost, multifunctional Advanced Power and De-orbit System (APDM) for a 3U CubeSat. Current CubeSats have limited power generating capabilities, often with an Average Orbital Power (AOP) of 5 watts. State of the art CubeSat solar arrays presently produce 21 watts… More

Low-Cost Deorbiting System

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Shane Stamm, Design Engineer
Award Amount: $749,850.00
Abstract:
The proposed Phase II SBIR will design, analyze, produce and test a protoflight unit for a Low Cost De-orbiting System. The proposed de-orbit module is a high reliability, modular, aero-blanket system that de-orbits a 180 kg spacecraft from an 800 km orbit to meet DOD Instruction 3100.12 for a 25… More

FDM-HAWK, A High Performance Compact Modular Solar Array

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Thomas J. Harvey, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $99,986.00
Abstract:
Developing a next generation high performance solar array with significant reduction in size and weight will result in improved NASA mission capabilities at lower cost. Photovoltaic cell technology is evolving rapidly to the point solar array structural and mechanical systems do not fully optimize… More

Large Deployable Telescope Components

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Thomas Harvey, Chief Technical Officer – (303) 258-7365
Award Amount: $149,968.00
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: Air Force space missions with optical payloads are limited in their reflective aperture by the diameter of the launch vehicle fairing. EELV class vehicles are very expensive and even then their apertures are limited to less than 5 m. If the smaller launch vehicles like the Minotaur I… More

Large Deployable Telescope Components

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Thomas J. Harvey, Chief Technical Officer – (303) 258-7365
Award Amount: $736,197.00
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: As future DoD budgets become more cost constrained, delivering high performance payloads in a smaller stowed package to leverage the capabilities of smaller, less costly launch vehicles becomes paramount. The performance of optical payloads is driven by physics. At a first order the… More
