Message from Space Micro Inc. reports that they have received five separate contracts for SBIR to develop and improve Space Micro products for scientific, defense and dual purposes. These awards for the first quarter of 2021 were received by the US Army, the US Air Force AFWERX and NASA.
Space Micro said that their core experience in developing and orbiting reliable radiation-cured space subsystems, including communications (RF and optical), processors and cameras, provides the basis for the award-winning proposals:
U.S. Army: STTR contract for “Machine-Based Device and Wave Adaptation for SDRs operating in congested and contested environments.”
US Air Force AFWERX: STTR contract “Modularly defined software radio for sustainable SATCOM” to improve Space Micro Nanocom опреде software defined radio (SDR) for new U.S. space program programs, including SmallSats and CubeSats.
NASA: Phase I SBIR Award for “Artificial Intelligence Processing (AI) with Tolerant Radiation in Space.”
US Air Force AFWERX: Phase 1 SBIR contract for “SpaceCam: dual-use space imagery and SSA camera” to further enhance Space Micro SpaceCam™ space cameras.
US Air Force AFWERX: Phase 1 SBIR Award for “Multilayer Space Communications Full Duplex RF-to-Optical Converter for SATCOM”.
“We are so pleased to have been awarded these contracts to further develop innovative technologies and dual-use items. These SBIR Awards contribute to the $ 50 million government investment in Space Micro products we have received over the past two decades as we have successfully designed highly reliable, space-skilled and flight-proven technologies. ” said David J. Strobel, CEO of Space Micro.
