Title: Light-Weight, Efficient and Quiet 10 hp Class Modular Heavy Fuel Engine
Agency / Branch: DOD / DARPA
Contract: W31P4Q-09-C-0110
Award Amount: $99,000.00
 

Abstract:

The project aims to develop a strategy for a small, modular heavy fuel engine in the 10 hp class, using scaled versions of a heavy fuel atomization system and combustion management systems previously developed by D-STAR, and by optimizing the engine design parameters to yield a successful engine that offers light weight, high efficiency and quiet operations. For the Phase 1, the project tasks include : definition of an approach for the modular engine; modeling of engine processes and performance; variational performance analysis and optimization, prediction of engine performance; preliminary design and layout of the engine; experimental validation of critical technologies, iteration of the design, and reporting & planning. The above process will lead to a modular heavy-fuel / multi-fuel engine in the 10 hp class.
