Our initial application of this technology will be NASA aeronautics research projects such as the Scalable Convergent Electronic Propulsion Technology Operations Research (SCEPTOR) X-57 project and the AirVolt test facility, both at NASA Armstrong Flight Research Center. Additional aeronautics research projects would follow. The system is being evaluated for use in ground operations for the Resource Prospector robotic mission to the moon being jointly developed by NASA JSC and ARC. Applications to ISS and Orion mission operations are also envisioned and we are working with NASA Flight Operations Directorate (FOD) personnel at NASA Johnson Space Flight Center. NASA's Space Network Ground Segment Sustainment (SGSS) project that is modernizing the space agency's ground infrastructure systems for their Space Network is evaluating this system as a potential technology for Local Operating Procedures (LOPs).
TRACLabs is already selling the core technology proposed in this project as a commercial product with a large oil field services company as a launch customer. Field-testing at several sites world-wide is currently underway before deployment in actual operations in mid-2017. TRACLabs expects additional customers in the oil and gas industry will deploy PRIDE once it has been proven effective by by our launch customer. Sierra Nevada Corporation has also purchased licenses for use in their Dream Chaser program, which was recently selected to deliver cargo to ISS. TRACLabs is beginning a pilot program with a large chemical manufacturer to explore the usefulness of electronic procedures in their operations. We expect additional manufacturing customers, especially in aerospace, in the future.
