Stennis projects among 20 picked

Two Stennis Space Center projects are among the 20 selected for NASA's Innovative Partnerships Program. The NASA Innovation Fund was established to advance work from NASA innovators on novel technologies and concepts that have the potential to revolutionize the way NASA performs its missions. More than 230 proposals were submitted. Each project is funded for a maximum of $50,000, with work to be completed by the end of September. The two Stennis projects are titled “Harvesting Vibrational Energy to Power Wireless Instrumentation Systems” and “Coanda Rocket Plume Deflectors for Large-Scale Test Facilities.” (Source: NASA, 07/10/09)
