NASA Early Stage Innovations Space Technology Research Grants

http://images.spaceref.com/news/2015/15-227.jpg "NASA has selected 15 university-led proposals for the study of innovative, early stage technologies that address high priority needs of America's space program. The Early Stage Innovations awards from NASA's Space Technology Research Grants Program are worth as much as $500,000 each. Universities have two to three years to work on their proposed research and development projects. The proposals selected under the Early Stage Innovations 2015 solicitation address unique, disruptive or transformational technologies, including: payload technologies for assistive free-flyers; robotic mobility technologies for the surfaces of icy moons; integrated photonics for space optical communication; computationally guided structural nanomaterials design; and atmospheric entry modeling development using flight data from the Orion's first flight test in space last December called Exploration Flight Test 1 (EFT-1)."
