High-Tech Small Business at Ames Research Center

I had the opportunity to go to Ames Research Center (ARC) where I met with many companies to learn about their current projects coming out of the Research Park. High-Tech Small Businesses with emerging technologies are constantly providing NASA with the resources to reach our goals faster than ever before. Just to name a few, I had the opportunity to meet with a company called skyTran. They are working on transporting high-speed vehicles using magnetic levitation (Maglev) with a patented Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) system. I got to see the folks over at Made In Space for the second time this year. Made In Space is the SBIR/STTR Phase II Company that invented the 3-D printer that operates in zero gravity. Rhombus Power, is known for a scaleable platform for detecting sub-atomic particles with their product known as Mercury. Scanadu Technology uses sensor technology to personalize medicine and The Peregrine Falcon Corporation helped design parabolic reflectors for the A1 antenna on the Advanced Microwave Sounding Unit (AMSU-A) flight instrument. It was a pleasure meeting each and every one of these companies and learning about their continued successes at NASA.
