NASA looking for small businesses to develop power generation/storage technologies

NASA's Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs are currently seeking small businesses to develop energy/power generation, conversion and management technologies to ensure the success of future space missions.  The desired technologies fall under two general categories: photovoltaics/ other energy generation and batteries, ultra-capacitors, fuel cells/ other storage. Within photovoltaics/energy generation, NASA desires power generation and conversion, technologies of space power and propulsion, advanced photovoltaic systems and energy conservation/sustainability. Within batteries, ultra-capacitors, fuel cells and other storage NASA desires power management and storage technologies, extreme environments technologies, technologies for space power and propulsion, energy conservation/sustainability, robotic systems for human exploration, fuel cells and electrolyzers for space applications, advanced space-rated batteries, advanced power conversion, management, and distribution for high power space exploration applications and batteries for oxygen concentrators.

The Syracuse Technology Garden has a strong desire to help small businesses become first-time participants in the NASA SBIR/STTR program. If your business fits the criteria please e-mail the Tech Garden at or call 315-474-0910.
