Spire Receives $599,793 Contract For Crew Cerebral Oxygen
Spire Corporation says it's received a two-year SBIR Phase II
contract for $599,793 from NASA to develop an optical system for
monitoring the cerebral blood oxygenation level of astronauts to
monitor their state of consciousness during space missions.
During this phase of the contract, an operational system will be
built based upon the Phase I results, which successfully
demonstrated the ability to see oxygen at the levels required using
diode laser and sensor detection techniques.
"This contract will enable us to develop instruments that not
only monitor the state of consciousness of astronauts but of others
who require continuous alertness, such as operators of trucks or
heavy equipment as well as those involved in critical military or
medical operations," said Spire CEO Roger G. Little.
