Award List:

Milliwatt Radioisotope Stirling Convertor

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$69,653.00
Agency:
NASA
Principal Investigator:
Abstract:
Sest, Inc. proposes to perform a detailed evaluation at the both convertor and component levels of a small, low electrical output power (50 to 500 mW) Stirling cycle based convertor utilizing light weight radioisotope heater units (LWRHU) as the heat source. The proposed milliwatt radioisotope… More

Milliwatt Radioisotope Stirling Convertor

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2006 / SBIR / Phase II
Award Amount:
$599,587.00
Agency:
NASA
Principal Investigator:
L. Barry Penswick, Principal Investigator
Abstract:
Studies of potential space missions have highlighted the need for very small electric power supplies for a variety of applications. The light weight radioisotope heat unit (RHU) offers a long-life, reliable energy source for such systems which is independent of the surrounding environmental… More

Prognostic Models for Cryo Cooling (Heat Transfer and Heat Dissipation) Systems

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$99,991.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator:
Barry Penswick, Principal Engineer
Abstract:
High performance sensors are playing an increasingly important role in all aspects of all critical DoD missions. There is a family of sensors that operate with improved sensitivities if cooled to very low (cryogenic) temperatures. For these sensors a mechanical refrigeration system (cryocooler) is… More

Prognostic Models for Cryo Cooling (Heat Transfer and Heat Dissipation) Systems

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2007 / SBIR / Phase II
Award Amount:
$749,999.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator:
Barry Penswick, Principal Investigator
Abstract:
Assuring success in all aspects of critical DoD missions is becoming dominated by the availability of high performance sensors. There is a family of sensors that operate with very improved sensitivities if cooled to very low (cryogenic) temperatures. For such sensors a mechanical refrigeration… More

Payload Integrated Health Management Systems

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$99,988.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator:
Barry Penswick, Principal Investigator
Abstract:
Development of a full-scale reliability based Prognostic Health Management (PHM) models/algorithms that are based on the physics of failure and actual failure data (past experience, ground tests) and integrate them into real time software tool for the health monitoring of the satellite payload… More
