Title: Novel High Temperature Magnetic Bearings for Space Vehicle Systems
Agency: NASA
Contract: NNC06CA04C
Award Amount: $599,999.00
 

Abstract:

Previous high temperature magnetic bearings employed electromagnets only. The work proposed in this SBIR program seeks to utilize High Temperature Permanent Magnets (HTPM) developed by EEC. This will improve efficiency since the majority of the static load on any bearing can be suspended by the magnetic field of the HTPM. The end product will be a high speed/high temperature/high load test platform for the future development of bearing, motor, generator, and seal components. This capability will be of special benefit to the aerospace and process machinery industries. In addition the component demonstrations from this SBIR will provide designers with the confidence needed to integrate similar components in their high performance machinery.
