Award List:

Open System of Agile Ground Stations

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Fran??ois Martel, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $99,547.00
Abstract:
There is an opportunity to build the HETE-2/TESS network of ground stations into an innovative and powerful Open System of Agile Stations, by developing a low-cost reconfigurable system based on the new commercial Software Designed Radios (SDR), and by establishing an internet based access system.… More

Open System of Agile Ground Stations

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Fran??ois H. Martel, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $590,165.00
Abstract:
The Phase I effort demonstrated, through actual development and tests with a spacecraft system, the technical and programmatic feasibility of developing, within the SBIR phase II program, the prototype of an innovative and low-cost Open System of Agile Ground Stations using the new commercial… More

Networked Cubesat RF Sparse Array System

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / DARPA
Principal Investigator: Fran+ois Martel, President
Award Amount: $98,734.00
Abstract:
We propose to design, develop, build and fly the elements of an orbiting large-baseline sparse array antenna system (RFSAS) using a cluster of cubesats. RFSAS will function effectively as an antenna with aperture adjustable from several meters to tens of kilometers, providing a range of sensing… More

Precision Electrospray Thruster Assembly (PETA)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Francois Martel, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $99,627.00
Abstract:
New low cost, low volume, low power, rugged electrospray thrusters will be ideal as actuators for precision thrusting, if provided with precision high voltage power supplies. The small thrusters show minimum thrusts of 1.2 nanoNewton, and thrusts scalable in a wide range to hundreds of microNewtons,… More
