Jacobs Engineering recently hosted a national competition on space exploration technologies to support NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center.

The Jacobs Space Technology Challenge sought proposals for technologies that boost the safety, scheduling, performance and affordability of manned spaceflight, the company said Wednesday

A team from Georgia Institute of Technology won the competition and will receive a prize valued at $10K.

The winning entry, titled “Ionic Liquid Interactions with Functionalized Carbon Nanotubes for Supercapacitors,“ will demonstrate the use of electrochemical double-layer capacitors as rechargeable power storage.

“This creative prize challenge approach is another way to engage our high performing workforce, academia and industry partners to make that happen,“ said Steve Arnette, senior vice president for aerospace, technology and nuclear at Jacobs.

Jacobs will work with the winning team and NASA to further develop the technology.
