Award List:

Robust Spark and Plasma Ignition Systems for Gas Turbine Main Combustors and Augmentors

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$99,991.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator:
Karl Zaininger, Managing Director
Abstract:
The DoD has identified a series of potential problems created by the capability limits of present ignition technology. These limits are most pronounced at high altitude where low pressure and vitiated air with low oxygen produce an ignition limited condition. Kinetic Spark Ignition is a… More

Augmentor Screech Instability Control through Directed Plasma Discharge

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2014 / STTR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$79,963.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator:
Ephraim Gutmark, Distinguished Professor o – (513) 556-1227
Research Institution:
University of Cincinnati
RI Contact:
Ephraim Gutmark
Abstract:
Directed plasma discharge using Knite Inc."s Kinetic Spark Ignition (KSI) hardware is proposed as a means to quell augmentor screech tone. Contrary to typical plasma ignitors, where plasma discharge is between anode and cathode, the KSI can discharge plasma into the flow in a reproducible… More

Advanced ignition technology for ultra lean,ultra high pressure internal combustion engines

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2014 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$149,567.00
Agency:
DOE
Principal Investigator:
Arthur Suckewer, Mr. – (609) 406-7888
Abstract:
There is a need to further develop the internal combustion engine to increase its efficiency and reduce emissions. In this RFP, DoE has correctly concluded that presently utilized ignition technology is a limiting factor in further improvements. DoE has specified certain performance targets which it… More
