AVOX Systems, part of the Zodiac Aerospace Group, maintains a very experienced engineering and design staff dedicated to improving our existing offerings and to finding new ways to deliver respiratory support in aircraft environments. In addition to being capable of entire system designs, including system integration and verification, we are also concentrating our research and development efforts in the areas of oxygen storage, where new lightweight technologies are in development and production; oxygen generation, including both chemical and pressure swing adsorption (OBOGS) systems; high efficiency delivery systems for passenger aircraft to minimize the weight of emergency oxygen systems; and, low cost valve and regulator designs. Avox Systems is located in Lancaster, New York and is a proud sponsor of SpaceVision 2012.
The New York Space Grant Consortium supports many general public activities including public Astronomy observing nights at the Hayden Planetarium in New York City, funds for the Sciencenter in Ithaca for the Sagan Planet Walk (a scale model of the solar system), a "Science Minute" radio program for students to write one minute essays on science with the emphasis on the space program to be aired on the radio, a robotics exhibit that allows visitors to piece together several components to form a custom robot device to accomplish simple tasks such as picking up a simulated Mars rock, etc. The New York Space Grant program sponsors lectures during Science and Technology Week. Another General Public program that the New York Space Grant helps support is the J. L. Hopkins Foundation Workshops for Journalists. The workshops are intended to highlight areas of current scientific research to journalists so they can better inform the public of the latest advances in science and technology. An informed public will be more equipped to understand and provide the necessary resources for a science and technology literate society. The Space Grant Program supports the development of new space science and aerospace-related courses at member institutions.

Xtraordinary Innovative Space Partnerships, Inc. (XISP-Inc), has been formed to accomplish space-scalable technology and product development that leverages commercial applications to fund the maturation of the available technology base for both mission enhancing as well as mission enabling space and terrestrial applications. XISP-Inc's goal is achieving a material reduction in the cost, schedule, and technical risk associated with the use of innovative technologies currently stranded at low levels of technological maturity. This is material for both mission enhancing technologies and mission enabling technologies. Mission enhancing technologies are defined as those technologies which if sufficiently mature could enhance the value proposition of a terrestrial and/or space mission. Mission enabling technologies, are defined as those technologies which if sufficiently mature could enable a mission to actually be accomplished that otherwise would not be practical and/or even possible. This work will be accomplished by crafting partnerships to create actionable pools of otherwise stranded intellectual property developed and/or owned by some combination of the government, commercial, non-governmental, academic, and/or individual concerns which when integrated into an evolving technological commons can be defined with sufficient clarity to allow for profitable product development leveraging the same. The premise is that by contributing to a technological commons with clearly defined property boundaries the incumbent product development risk is reduced. The synergistic effect of providing a clear articulation of the state-of-the-art, including what is and is not public domain, provides new opportunities for the participants to create real products using their unique insights that have a greater potential for direct and indirect profit. The recursive benefit of each product successfully developed is some reduction in the actual and/or perceived cost, schedule, and/or technical risk associated with the use of the technology in other applications.

The OpenLuna Foundation aims to return mankind to the moon through private enterprise. Initial goals focus on a stepped program of robotic missions coupled with extensive public relations and outreach. Following these purely robotic missions, a short series of manned missions will construct a small, approximately 6 person settlement based on a location scouted by the robotic missions. This settlement will be open for anyone's use (private individuals to government agencies), provided they respect our ethical conduct and heritage policies.
