Award List:

Electrical power generation for sustained high speed flight

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Research Institution: Research Triangle Institute
Principal Investigator: Suzanne Ciftan Hens, Research Scientist
Award Amount: $99,986.00
RI Contact: Sheila Sanders
Abstract:
Development of a compliant microfabricated heat exchanger to work with thermoelectric devices as a means of power generation for hypersonic vehicles is proposed. Polymer-based materials provide to provide compression on the thermoelectric module, to ensure optimal thermal contact, while allowing for… More

Back-Gate Field Emission-Based Cathode RF Electron Gun

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Allen Martin, Dr.
Award Amount: $99,914.00
Abstract:
High current electron sources are required in numerous applications of interest to the DOE; however, current RF guns based upon thermionic cathodes and photocathodes have serious limitations. While thermionic cathodes have high average electron currents, they suffer from degraded beam quality when… More

Electrical power generation for sustained high speed flight

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / STTR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Research Institution: Research Triangle Institute
Principal Investigator: Suzanne A. Hens, Research Scientist – (919) 881-0500
Award Amount: $750,000.00
RI Contact: Stacey Passwaters
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: The potential of scramjet engines for use by the U.S. military would revolutionize countermeasures enabling rapid responses to global hot spots. The scramjet traveling at hypersonic speed cannot use rotary power typically employed at sub-Mach velocities, while auxiliary power units and… More
