H4XLabs x NASA SBIR Ignite 

 

SBIR Ignite is a unique annual program developed by NASA to fund and foster early-stage U.S. technology companies innovating in NASA-relevant fields. With an emphasis on helping companies build a commercial customer base, SBIR Ignite goes beyond the standard SBIR/STTR program to enable even the smallest companies access to NASA resources and expertise. 

 

SBIR Ignite provides a way for small businesses that have a commercially viable technology idea to use NASA as a stepping stone in their path towards commercial success. With a greater emphasis on commercialization, SBIR Ignite funds U.S. early-stage, high-risk technology development to help make companies and their technologies more attractive to private sector investors, customers, and partners. 

 

Now in its third year, SBIR Ignite is a three-year pilot initiative offered by NASA under the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) framework to advance and accelerate innovation and commercialization for U.S. small businesses operating in NASA-relevant fields, including (but not necessarily limited to) space and aerospace. In addition to funding, SBIR Ignite gives companies tailored assistance, mentorship, training, and resources that go beyond traditional SBIR programming to expedite technology development, strengthen market readiness, and increase opportunity for commercial success. 

 

This year's topics include:
🚀 Aviation-Ready Electrical Energy Storage for All-Electric or Hybrid Electric Aircraft
🚀 Decision Support Tools Leveraging NASA Earth Science Data
🚀 Leak Free Cryogenic Valves and Quick Disconnects
