Sydor Technologies has been awarded a nearly $150,000 Phase I Small Business Innovation Research grant by NASA.
Through the grant, Sydor and collaborators at the MIT Kavli Institute for Astrophysics and Space Research, will begin developing a low cost, versatile soft x-ray detector for class-D space missions.
The study will also assess the potential market beyond space missions, including x-ray measurements at university and government labs that support NASA objectives.
“This is a wonderful opportunity to broaden the fields of study that can benefit from our x-ray detectors beyond light sources and fusion science, and to forge a new collaborative partnership with the team at MIT,” said Ben Martin, technology development manager at Sydor Technologies, in a statement.
Sydor Technologies provides advanced x-ray detectors and diagnostic instrumentation design and manufacturing.
