Slide1:  Winning NASA SBIR & STTR Projects W. Paul Mexcur Program Manager Slide2:  How to Win - Know Your Customer Does the Agency issue Contracts or Grants? Grants -- “Financial support for research and research-related activities in a particular subject area or field. Grants are normally awarded by sponsors whose purpose in supporting research is scientific, cultural, or philanthropic Granting agencies (like NFS and NIH) have very broad purposes and will support your research interest More flexible -- type of research, schedules, dollar values Contracts -- “A mutually binding legal relationship obligating the seller to furnish the supplies or services and the buyer to pay for the.” Contracts are procurement instruments Contracting agencies (like NASA and DoD) are primarily interested in finding small businesses that are interested in focusing on their needs More ridge requirements -- are you a “good contractor?” Phase 3 contract potential -- multi-million dollar follow-on potential Major differences between Grants and Contracts. Pro and Cons associated with both Slide3:  Contracting Agencies Granting Agencies DOD NIH NASA NSF DHS DOE DOT USDA EPA ED DOC Internal Proposal Reviews External Reviews Contracts or Grants Slide4:  Agency Differences ALWAYS CHECK WITH AGENCIES Slide5:  How to Win -

Mar Exploration Rovers Deep Impact Mission Hubble Space Telescope Small Aircraft Transportation System (SATS) program Photodynamic Therapy Slide35:  SBIR Technologies on Mars Exploration Rovers Maxwell Technologies of San Diego, California fabricated and tested an ASCII chip with single event latch up protection technology. Innovation enables the use of commercial chip technology in space missions, providing higher performance at a lower cost. Supplying A to D converter for Mars 03 Rovers. Yardney Technical Products of Pawtucket, Connecticut developed lithium ion batteries with specific energy of >100Wh/kg and energy density of 240 Wh/l and long cycle life. Subsequently, they won a large Air Force/NASA contract to develop batteries for space applications. They are supplying the batteries for the 2003 Mars Rovers. Starsys Research of Boulder, Colorado developed several paraffin based heat switches that function autonomously. Heat switches control radiator for electronics package on Mars 2003 Rovers. Slide36:  Barr Associates Provided optical filters for filter wheels and a dichroic beam splitter located in mission instruments on the flyby spacecraft. These instruments gathered images that will be used to analyze the results of the material ejected by the impact and the crater created by the impact. SBIR Technologies on Deep Impact Mission Composite Optics Provided three telescope structures constructed from light weight, thermally stable composite materials. The structures were for the medium and high resolution imaging instruments on the flyby spacecraft and the telescope (not shown) on the impactor. Medium Resolution Instrument High Resolution Instrument Scimeasure Analytical Systems The highest quality images from a ground observatory were made possible by wave front sensor cameras from Scimeasure Analytical Systems. These cameras are key to the adaptive optics at the Palomar Observatory where astronomers continue to track the consequences of the impact on comet Tempel 1. Slide37:  Miniature Cryogenic Turboalternator (for Hubble Space Telescope) INNOVATION Developed miniature, high speed, vibration free turboalternator ACCOMPLISHMENTS Creare, Inc of Hanover, NH developed high speed shaft in cryogenic gas bearings; high precision, and automated miniature rotor fabrication techniques. Demonstrated operations at 50° Kelvin. Successful installation and operation of a 75° Kelvin cooler on Hubble Space Telescope NICMOS instrument. Slide39:  Commercial Application Photodynamic Therapy INNOVATION Using technology derived for NASA’s Space Shuttle plant growth experiments, tiny, pinhead-sized light-emitting diodes (LEDs)  have been developed for cancer treatment and wound healing. ACCOMPLISHMENTS In its work in cancer treatment, Quantum Devices of Barnveld, Wisconsin, uses its LED probe to activate photosensitizers - light sensitive, tumor treating drugs. The LED activation process allows the drugs to destroy cancerous cells and leave the surrounding, healthy tissue virtually untouched. The surgical probe may also emit longer waves of red light to stimulate a new drug called Benzoporphyrin Derivative (BPD). Surgery with the improved probe and medicine are very promising.
