Prof. Bobby Braun and Former AE Prof. John Olds Announce Operation of Terminal Velocity Aerospace, LLC
Prof. Bobby Braun and former AE faculty John Olds announced the operation of Terminal Velocity Aerospace, LLC (TVA) (see http://tvaero.com) today. This newly formed Georgia business, co-founded by Bobby and John, provides atmospheric reentry services to enhance safety and promote the utilization of outer space. TVA offers small Re-Entry Devices (RED) designed for unprecedented data collection during reentry breakup and for return of small payloads from space.
Through a research and development partnership with the Georgia Institute of Technology's Space Systems Design Laboratory (SSDL), TVA will expand its product line. The next generation of RED products, currently in design within SSDL, will provide reentry data collection from distributed sensors (RED-Sensor), low-cost flight opportunities for technology advancement (RED-Test), small payload return (RED-Treasure), and "black box" safety recording for human spaceflight missions (RED-SafeReturn).
This partnership is made possible through support by the Georgia Tech VentureLab and the Georgia Research Alliance.
