ARS 25th Anniversary

This fall (2018) we are celebrating our 25th anniversary and the new ARS. From late August to December ARS and the Star Sailor Group will be introducing our new technologies with applications to automation and robotics, power storage and motorless motion, space power, 24/7 wind power, green composites and modular housing. Sign up for new announcement and celebrate with us at

ARS partnering with Star Sailor Power to create new solutions in aerospace power

The new space engineering era is dependent on innovative power solutions. Power storage for decades has been nearly exclusively supported by chemical batteries. Continuing issues in battery safety, environmental impact and the growing power density requirements for microgrid applications on Earth and in space are driving new technologies to the forefront. New approaches to energy harvesting created by Star Sailor Power technologies could change the paradigm for power storage forever.

Star Sailor Power became the first spin-off company of ARS' first spin-off, Star Sailor Energy, Inc. Star Sailor Power, LLC. has secured initial funding to begin prototyping of its On-Demand Power Module seen as a solution to heavy and energy thirsty power drive technology, automation and electric generation in a lightweight, reliable package. The partnership also continues development of SSP's patented non-electrolytic power storage technology envisioned to augment and replace battery stacks in automobiles, aviation, space, medicine, renewable energy, and robotics. The SSP power storage technology is offers a safe, reliable system capable of direct charging, energy harvesting and a nearly limitless shelf-life.

From the original Star Sailor Power Press release: "On the success of Star Sailor Energy’s recent launch of the first performance enhanced wind turbine products; its newest effort will be to commercialize its patented energy storage technology. The new project will bring together Star Sailor Energy, Inc. and Aerospace Research Systems to develop prototypes for satellite, wind turbine continuous power, and electric vehicle applications based on Star Sailor’s patented energy storage and motorless motion technology. Initial funding creates a unique opportunity to apply ARS's extensive experience in advanced materials, intelligent systems and space technology to a potential game changer in energy storage and on-demand power for renewable energy technologies and electric vehicles. The new venture will include development of virtual Space Power Laboratory to advance the use of Star Sailor Power’s technology in orbital and planetary applications."


ARS' world class materials bridging new areas of research and application of green composites

ARS' materials expertise is being applied to sustainable aerospace structures and buildings. New materials developed at ARS are producing green composites and complement advances functional structures. These new building materials offer lighter, modular structures with high-energy efficiency and strength. One of this century's most challenging problems is housing. Sustainable, affordable housing offering energy efficiency can be met by ARS' new lightweight materials technology. Other applications include anechoic chambers as well as a new approach to small sats, disposable vehicles, lunar and remote structures.

Sometimes it Takes a Rocket Scientist®

Since our first web site in the late 1990’s, Sometimes it Takes a Rocket Scientist® has been synonymous with ARSI and innovation. Now Sometimes it Takes a Rocket Scientist, Inc is a new corporation dedicated to innovative processes, advanced computer systems, knowledge management and science and technology based information services. It is organized to commercialize ARS' revolutionary information technologies, to kick-start a new era in computing and publication for the big data challenges of frontier science as well as for education, industry, medical research and space exploration.
