SUCCESS STORY #214
The traditional red fire extinguisher has received an extreme makeover at the hands of Houston-based Mauser Group with assistance from the NASA-funded Space Alliance Technology Outreach Program (SATOP) resulting in a sleek silver model that will complement even the most upscale home interiors.
SATOP is Space Technology for
Small Business

The Space Alliance Technology Outreach Program (SATOP) strives to transfer the knowledge and technology of the space program to small businesses. Any type of small business is encouraged to submit a technical challenge to SATOP. If SATOP is able to assist, the small business is provided with up to 40 hours of FREE technical assistance from a scientist or engineer in the Space Program.
Economic Development Organizations
A key part of SATOPís communications strategy has been to form alliances with Economic Development Organizations (EDO) to raise awareness of the programís offer of free technical assistance for small businesses..

That strategy has been a resounding success thanks to the ongoing efforts of EDOs such as the Business Development Board of Palm Beach County Fla. (BDB).
 
SATOPís Space Alliance Partners include private corporations, universities, and NASA centers in Florida, New Mexico, New York, and Texas that volunteer their time and expertise to assist small businesses via SATOP.
