Award List

  1. NOFB-Aerospike

    Amount: $99,790.00

    We propose the research, development and testing of a clustered aerospike engine to eventually be utilized with our high performance NOFB (nitrous oxide fuel blend) monopropellant and combustion chamb ...

    SBIR Phase I 2010 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  2. Rigidizing Inflatable Deployable Dwelling (RIDD)

    Amount: $69,580.00

    By combining thin thermoplastic films, woven Vectran reinforcements, and heat a reliable, deployable, rigidizing space habitat can be created. Although much research has been performed on rigidizing ...
