Oakman Aerospace Inc. (OAI) and Argentina-based ArsUltra S.A. (AU) signed a strategic Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to collaborate on integrating their respective technologies as well as potential new technology creation. The new agreement indicates the companies' shared intention to advance spacecraft development through Modular Open System Architectures (MOSA) along with standardization and interoperability constructs.

"OAI's MOSA-based Advanced Configurable Open-system Research Network (ACORN) was released commercially in 2017 and is now internationally exportable, enabling this partnership with AU," stated Stanley O. Kennedy, Jr., President and Chief Systems Engineer of Oakman Aerospace, Inc. "We are excited to showcase the synergies between OAI and AU's MOSA technologies to revolutionize the landscape of space."

In development for the last four years, AU's FREEDOM F1 Modular Spacecraft focuses on high reliability advanced modular spacecraft design. This modular spacecraft, coupled with OAI's history of implementing MOSA in the development of spacecraft systems, will enable efficient spacecraft design and integration. The two organizations will now begin work to integrate OAI's MOSA expertise and ACORN tool with ArsUltra's FREEDOM F1 Modular Spacecraft design into a complete, end to end spacecraft solution.

"We are really excited about the possibility of this collaboration, which we envision as something very fruitful that will lead to a great future in the years to come for both organizations," added Juan Martín Semegone, President and Chief Systems Engineer of ArsUltra S.A.

It is a rare issue of the major Business Press - WSJ; New York Times; Washington Post - and regional equivalents; magazines of similar importance - The Economist, Fortune, Forbes etc - and now a wealth of electronic communications and daily news feeds that does not include reference to, or articles about, one/more SBIR-STTR Awardees. With the focus usually on what the firm is about - their technical achievement or business emphasis - it is an unusual coverage that even mentions their SBIR involvement. An integral part of the extensive range of data we continuously assembled in our system on all SBIR-STTR involved firms includes this type of press coverage.  Much that we gather includes firms no longer SBIR involved or still in business, nor now eligible. ...more
