Award List:

Space Qualified, Fast Steering Mirror (SQ_FSM)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Principal Investigator: Felix Morgan, Principal Investigator – (505) 767-1275
Award Amount: $1,149,996.00
Many steering mirrors have been developed over the years, but never has one been explicitly designed for high dose radiation environments or long-term space operations. As a result, deployed spaced based optical systems for line-of-sight stabilization or beam control have not benefited from the… More

Realistic Autonomous Mission Manager Modeler (RAMMM)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Bill Manning, Senior Software Engineer – (505) 767-1200
Award Amount: $149,934.00
ABSTRACT: The Air Force is seeking methods to enhance satellite responsiveness by developing autonomous flight software that supports on-board event detection, planning, and task execution. Key to autonomous flight software is a realistic simulation environment with realistic satellite models. … More

Compact, Lightweight Isolation Platform (CLIP)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Rick Walter, Pricipal Investigator
Award Amount: $124,999.00
NASA has a critical need for improved bi-directional data transmission rates from a variety of spacecraft to Earth. NASA estimates that the current Mars to Earth transfer rate of 6 Mbps might be increased to 600Mbps using a laser comm (LC) system. Because the LC beam is less than 10 microradians… More

Compact Optical Inertial Reference Unit (COIRU)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Rick Walter, Principal Investigator – (505) 767-1235
Award Amount: $79,748.00
ATA proposes to develop a Compact Optical Inertial Reference Unit (COIRU) to address the requirements of the Optical Inertial Reference Unit (OIRU) for Navy Tactical Airborne High Energy Laser (HEL) Application solicitation. The COIRU proposes the following innovative technical approach to address… More

Nano-Optomechanical Massive MEMS Accelerometer (NOMMA)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / DARPA
Research Institution: Sandia National Laboratories
Principal Investigator: Brian Homeijer, Principal Investigator – (505) 285-8962
Award Amount: $99,796.00
RI Contact: Dan Fleming
Inertial navigation systems (INS) are a critical asset to the DoD in environments where GPS is either denied or unavailable. At the heart of these systems are precision acceleration and rotation sensors. Recently, MEMS-based accelerometers have found wide

Space Object Integrated Detection And Tracking (SOIDAT) Algorithm

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Dan Eckelkamp-Baker, Technical Fellow – (505) 767-1219
Award Amount: $135,464.00
ABSTRACT: Team ATA proposes to develop a FISST-based holistic integrated framework (FHIF) for multi-target detection, tracking, identification, and characterization (DTIC) of space objects. Space objects proliferate in the near-Earth space environment. These objects range from operational… More

High Resolution ADC on an Application Specific Integrated Circuit (HRADC-ASIC)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2014 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: David McIntire, Electrical&Controls Group Lead – (505) 767-1251
Award Amount: $149,925.00
ABSTRACT: Performance of space-based digital control systems is limited by the low resolution of available radiation-hardened Analog to Digital Converters (ADCs) and Digital to Analog Converters (DACs). Applied Technology Associates (ATA) proposes to develop a High Resolution ADC on an Application… More
