While flying on suborbital launch vehicles in zero gravity, experimental technologies are briefly exposed to the space environment where they are expected to operate. Funded by NASA’s Flight Opportunities Program, three of the technologies were flown in collaboration with NASA’s Game Changing Development Program: an advanced micro sun sensor from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif. a radiation-tolerant computer system from Montana State University, Bozeman and a vibration isolation platform from Controlled Dynamics, Inc. of Huntington Beach, Calif. The vibration isolation platform has also been selected by the Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS) ...
