Title: FEASIBILITY OF VARIOUS EROSION RESISTANCE/EROSION AVOIDANCE TECHNIQUES FOR SMALL INEXPENSIVE PROPELLERS
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Contract: N/A
Award Amount: $53,511.00
 

Abstract:

CONTRACTOR WILL EXAMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF UTILIZING ITS EXISTING, BUT EXPERIMENTAL LEADING-EDGE PROTECTION SYSTEM TO PROVIDE EROSION RESISTANCE FOR INEXPENSIVE UAV PROPELLERS. THE EXISTING SYSTEM UTILIZES ELASTOMERIC URETHANES CONFIGURED TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE PRINCIPLES OF THICK COATING THEORY. THE SYSTEM WILL BE THOROUGHLY TESTED, RATIONALIZED, AND DOCUMENTED; AND ITS ADAPTABILITY TO PRODUCTIONIZATION WILL BE EXAMINED. IN ADDITION, OPTIONAL EXTENSIONS OF THE EFFORT WILL PROVIDE FOR COMPARATIVE EVALUATION OF THE EXISTING SYSTEM WITH NOVEL CONCEPTS INVOLVING HARD COATINGS, AERODYNAMIC EROSION AVOIDANCE TECHNIQUES, AND ACTIVE PREVENTION SYSTEMS.
