RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT
Emergent integrates cutting-edge GN&C algorithms, sensors and systems with modern software and information technology for support of autonomous, multi-spacecraft space missions. With over 60% of our employees having an MS or PhD in engineering or science, Emergent is well positioned to perform Research and Development in this domain for our civil, military and commercial space customers.
Much of our R&D activity is funded through the federal Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR)/Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) program, a highly competitive program that encourages U.S. Small Businesses and Universities to perform R&D that meets federal needs and requirements and has the potential for commercialization. Since 2006, Emergent has won 35 Phase 1 awards, successfully transitioning 11 of them to Phase 2, and 2 to Phase 3.
