  2. Constant Pressure Aerospike for Interceptor Axial Propulsion

    SBC: Analytical Services, Inc.            Topic: MDA09001

    Our proposed effort will be used to determine the feasibility of a deeply-throttleable aerospike engine that maintains constant specific impulse performance, regardless of the throttle setting. The design incorporates technology previously demonstrated under another SBIR, but extends it through incorporation of an aerospike nozzle.

  5. Advanced Architecture and Process Techniques for High-Density, Radiation-Hardened Non-Volatile Memory

    SBC: Amtec Corporation            Topic: MDA08023

    For mission critical data storage on systems operating in natural space and nuclear weapons environments, the use of radiation hardened (RH) non-volatile memory (NVM) is imperative. Today's complex computer controlled electronic systems use NVM to store critical data for proper operation. This typically includes configuration parameters which allow the system to return to a known configuration a ...
