Micro Attitude Thruster System (MATS)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Marc Hill, Senior Project Engineer
Award Amount: $68,509.00
Abstract:
Long range gun launched munitions developed for Naval Surface Fire Support can reach altitudes that are essentially outside the Earth's atmosphere (exoatmospheric). Once outside of the Earth's atmosphere, these projectiles are no longer subjected to atmospheric forces that can aid in the… More

IMU Accuracy Enhancements for Ground-based Midcourse Defense (GMD)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
