St. George software developer wins NASA grant

MotionPort, a St. George-based developer and distributor of computer-aided engineering software, has received a $125,000 grant from the NASA Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) to develop an application that will simulate deployable space structures, specifically roll-out solar arrays. The work will assist NASA in increasing efficiency in stowing and deploying solar arrays of ever-increasing size, a news release said. It also will help NASA reduce errors. Salt Lake Tribune
