bluShift Aerospace, a startup aerospace company based in Brunswick, Maine, is proud to announce it was awarded the Phase 0 grant from the Maine Technology Institute (MTI) early January, 2017. The grant will enable the company to employ additional resources in seeking a larger grant from NASA’s Small Business Research Initiative (SBIR). If awarded, the federal grant will enable bluShift to accelerate the research and development of its green fuel rocket for launching nano-satellites into orbit. Funds from the federal grant will be used to purchase equipment and supplies for testing, as well as hire additional technical personnel at its Brunswick headquarters.
