The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Clustered Vacuum Arc Thruster for Deep Space Missions

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation proposes to develop a new Clustered Vacuum Arc Thruster (CVAT) as an electric propulsion micro-thruster for microspacecraft with mass kg of total propellant. If the feed mechanism involves moving parts, its reliability is an issue, especially with active control. An innovative solution to this problem is proposed: deploy an array of individual, static thrusters ...

  2. Throttleable Vacuum Arc Thruster for Precision Positioning

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation proposes to develop a new type of electric propulsion device dubbed the Throttleable Vacuum Arc Thruster (TVAT). This thruster is itself a variant on an earlier thruster (the Vacuum Arc micro-Thruster (VA?-T)) that has been demonstrated via a recently concluded Phase I SBIR contract from BMDO (NASA/GRC contract NAS300129). The VA?T was verified to be a low mass ...

  3. Distributed, Dynamic Space-Based Logistics Contingency Planning

    SBC: 21ct, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Space travel is fraught with ever changing emergencies and accidents that place human life and expensive one-of-a-kind autonomous systems at risk. Hypothetical collisions with space debris, human and computer errors are just a few examples of such risk. In this effort, we propose space based logistics technologies that can ameliorate and minimize the inherent risks due to space travel. We shall ad ...

  4. Intelligent Control For Autonomous Remote Spacecraft

    SBC: ACCURATE AUTOMATION CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    In Phase I we developed, integrated, and demonstrated a real-time adaptive navigation system, and a companion real-time adaptive guidance system for UAVs. The underlying project goal is to provide an aircraft with the capability to autonomously reroute itself in real time through dynamic hazard environments and still achieve its mission objectives. The adaptive naviagtion system uses an evolutiona ...

  5. Flight Test Development of the X43A-LS Reusable Launch Vehicle

    SBC: ACCURATE AUTOMATION CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Accurate Automation Corporation proposes a three-pronged effort to build on the Phase I program to develop technologies in support of the NASA Hyper-X program and the X-43 series of research vehicles (X-43A, X-43B, and X-43C). The data and technologies developed under the proposed Phase II program will also support the development and testing of future hypersonic vehicles and reusable launch vehic ...

  6. A Distributed Guidance And Control System For Satellite Constellations

    SBC: ACCURATE AUTOMATION CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Accurate Automation Corporation has developed a distributed adaptive guidance and control architecture for minimum Delta-V formation flying of satellite constellations. The innovation in this approach is that it is an extremely streamlined solution to a very difficult guidance and control problem. The guidance module of the proposed architecture is built around a simulation of a system of particle ...
