Manufacturing company Infinite Composites Technologies (ICT) and Oklahoma State University-Tulsa partnership on Thursday announced the grant of the NASA SBIR contract in Oklahoma from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) under its Materials International Space Station Experiment (MISSE) programme.

This agreement is ICT's 10th NASA grant in Oklahoma since 1987 under the Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) grants.

The proposal, titled MISSE Experiments for Evaluation of Reliability of Cryogenic Tank Systems and Materials, will test ICT's materials for cryogenic tanks outside the International Space Station (ISS) against the harsh environment of space. The programme will evaluate the performance, stability and long-term survivability of materials and components planned for long-duration space missions.

In conjunction with the contract, ICT will partner with Dr Eric Benton and Dr Ranji Vaidyanathan from Oklahoma State University to model the materials' response to radiation and to test them before and after exposure to galactic cosmic radiation.
