|Advanced Stirling Convertor developed by Sunpower Inc and NASA Glenn Research Center.|
Advanced Stirling Radioisotope Generator developed by Lockheed Martin and the Department of Energy utilizing Sunpower/GRC Advanced Stirling Convertors
We have helped explore to the edge of the solar system!
We have been blessed to have been a part of the Atlas Centaur & Shuttle Centaur Launch Vehicle Programs as well as Space Station Freedom's Power System in the prime of our career.
We retired in January of 2009 from the challenge of advancing paradigm changing technologies in Radioisotope Power for deep space, Mars, Venus and Lunar exploration.
We currently provide expert consultation to select clients in the design, development, test and application of Radioisotope Power Systems and associated power management technologies. Our primary interest is Stirling Convertors and their application to the Advanced Stirling Radioisotope Generator (ASRG). Details on this generator can be obtained from the Department of Energy and NASA. The ASRG produces approximately four times the electrical power output per kilogram of radioisotope than state of the art Thermoelectric Generators such as the Multi Mission Thermoelectric Generator (MMRTG).
