Company Profile


  1. Re-generable Field Emission Cathodes

    Amount: $124,752.00

    A significant challenge in scaling micro-propulsion devices up to 100s of Watts as well as scaling macro devices down to sub-kiloWatt level is the lack of a compatible neutralizer technology in the me ...

    SBIR Phase I 2013 National Aeronautics and Space Administration
  2. A modified Local Space Imaging System (LSIS) for near-sun detection

    Amount: $698,254.00

    ABSTRACT: The LSIS system is a gimbaled MWIR or SWIR sensor designed to operate as an all-sky SSA sensor. The sensor is designed around the AIM-9X imager produced by Raytheon Missile Systems. Phase ...
