Connecting our Aerospace Businesses

Posted: April 26, 2019

The Aerospace Business Connect Online Search Tool is in development and we need your input!  This tool will provide direct access to Colorado businesses so that you can develop partnerships and build supplier networks. Not to mention being a beacon for those

outside of Colorado who want to do business with Colorado companies. This effort is led by the Colorado Space Business Roundtable. with support from Manufacturer’s Edge and other Colorado aerospace organizations. If you are interested in participating as we develop this valuable Colorado resource, email us at [email protected].


NASA Invests in Potentially Revolutionary Tech Concepts

Posted: April 26, 2019

Smart spacesuits and solar surfing may sound like the stuff of science fiction, but they are just two of the technology concepts NASA has selected for further research as part of the NASA Innovative Advanced Concepts (NIAC) program. The program will fund 18 studies to determine the feasibility of early-stage technologies that could go on to change what's possible in space.

The funded technologies have the potential to transform human and robotic exploration of other worlds, including the Moon and Mars. One researcher, for example, will study an affordable way to mine the ample ice at the Moon's polar regions. NASA aims to send astronauts to land on the Moon's South Pole in five years.

Two studies were chosen from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, including a Venus lander charged by a floating power generator, and a fleet of small satellites that could explore the edges of the solar system and beyond.

"Our NIAC program nurtures visionary ideas that could transform future NASA missions by investing in revolutionary technologies," said Jim Reuter, acting associate administrator of NASA's Space Technology Mission Directorate. "We look to America's innovators to help us push the boundaries of space exploration with new technology."

The latest NIAC selections include Phase I and Phase II awards. The selected Phase I studies cover a wide range of innovations. Each Phase I award is valued at approximately $125,000, helping researchers define and analyze their proposed concepts over nine months. If the initial feasibility studies are successful, awardees can apply for Phase II awards.

Check out the new Phase I and Phase II selections here:

For the first time this summer, the NIAC program will select one Phase III research study. The award will be up to $2 million for as long as two years. This final phase is designed to strategically transition a NIAC concept with the highest potential impact to NASA, other government agencies or commercial companies.

"NIAC is about going to the edge of science fiction, but not over," said Jason Derleth, NIAC program executive. "We are supporting high impact technology concepts that could change how we explore within the solar system and beyond."

NIAC partners with forward-thinking scientists, engineers and citizen inventors from across the nation to help maintain America's leadership in aeronautics and space research. NIAC is funded by NASA's Space Technology Mission Directorate, which is responsible for developing the cross-cutting, pioneering new technologies and capabilities needed by the agency to achieve its current and future missions.

Introducing a new feature of the CSBR Newsletter. – Small Business Spotlight. It will feature one of our small business CSBR members.

Palmetier Law was founded to help small and medium-sized businesses navigate the maze of government contracting regulations.  As a WOSB/SDVOSB, I understand the entrepreneurial spirit of a small business and appreciate the difficulties they face to enter the government contract market. With more than two decades of experience in the Air Force and a major defense contractor, I have a passion for aerospace and defense. My Primary Practice areas are:

  • Small Business Requirements
  • Data Rights and Patents
  • Ethics Programs
  • Contract Administration and Terms/Conditions
  • Commercial Item Status
  • Subcontract Management
  • Non-FAR Contracts
  • Compliance and Training

Since I started my own firm, I have focused on building a network of collaborative individuals and companies. Collaboration and cooperation is essential for our community’s ability to grow so we can all benefit. I help individuals and companies connect by introducing individuals, building a community calendar, supporting our small business community and providing resources. I look forward to meeting new people.
