NASA selects projects

NASA selected 20 research and technology proposals valued at $15 million from 19 American small businesses. Each is partnering with research institutions for Phase II of NASA’s Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) program. The selections include two projects supporting Stennis Space Center: One is “Through Wall Wireless Intelligent Sensor an Health monitoring,” developed by American GNC Corp. of Simi Valley, Calif., an Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute of Troy, New York. The other is “High Performance Simulation Tool for Multiphysics Propulsion Using Fidelity-Adaptive Combustion Modeling,” developed by Streamline Numerics, Inc. of Gainesville, Fla., and Stanford University of Stanford, Calif. Only small businesses awarded Phase I contracts are eligible to submit a proposal for a Phase II funding agreement. Phase II is focused on the development, demonstration and delivery of the innovation. Phase II projects are chosen as a result of competitive evaluations and based on selection criteria provided in the Solicitation. Phase II contracts last for 24 months with a maximum funding of $750,000. For a complete list of the STTR selections, click here. (Source: NASA/SSC, 08/17/18)
