METECS Awarded 2 NASA Phase I SBIRs

METECS has been awarded 2 Phase I Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) grants from NASA.

In the first SBIR, titled “Modern Software Technology for Flight Test Automation and Orchestration”, METECS will develop a scalable architectural software framework known as the mREST Automated Test Environment (MATE) which addresses the technical issues commonly associated with flight testing, measurement, and data acquisition by providing comprehensive flight test orchestration and data measurement/acquisition capabilities in both centralized and distributed environments.  MATE has the potential to significantly optimize current flight test methodologies without levying new requirements on each test element.  The Phase I portion of the contract has a value of $122,708 over 6 months.

In the second SBIR, titled “A Flexible Open Interface Standard for Test and Launch Operations”, METECS will generate an interface standard for mREST that can be utilized to solve the issues associated with test and launch operations. This will be accomplished by first doing research into the specific issues that typically arise during the pre-launch process and identifying areas where the existing mREST specification should be expanded and/or refined.  The Phase I portion of the contract has a value of $122,762 over 6 months.

METECS is thrilled to see our mREST customer base expand through the development of application specific interfaces and software tools that take advantage of core mREST technology.
