Integration of an Advanced Cryogenic Electric Propulsion System (ACEPS) to Aerodynamically Efficient Subsonic Transport Aircraft

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Andrew Gibson, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $99,773.00
Abstract:
This proposal defines innovative aerodynamic concepts and technology goals aimed at vehicle efficiency for future subsonic aircraft in the 2020 ýý 2030 timeframe. Noise, emissions and fuel burn are all vehicle efficiency concerns which can be addressed by aerodynamic concepts either on the… More

The Design and Integration of a Distributed Fan Propulsion System within a Split-Wing

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Mark H. Waters, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $99,993.00
Abstract:
A baseline propulsion system has been designed as a starting point in a previous SBIR effort for this project which consists of two turboshaft engines, a generator coupled directly (no gearbox) with each engine, and electric cables to motors that drive shrouded fans installed in or over the wing. … More

Hybrid-Electric Aircraft TOGW Development Tool with Empirically-Based Airframe and Physics-Based Hybrid Propulsion System Component Analysis

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Andrew R. Gibson, Aerospace Engineer
Award Amount: $120,558.00
Abstract:
Hybrid-Electric distributed propulsion (HEDP) is becoming widely accepted and new tools will be required for future development. This Phase I SBIR proposal creates a turbo-electric, hybrid electric propulsion system sizing and weight synthesis tool specifically designed for use in an MDAO… More

Investigative Research, FMECA and PHM Modeling of Hybrid-Electric Distributed Propulsion System Architectures

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Benjamin T. Schiltgen, VP, Senior Aerospace Engineer
Award Amount: $124,343.00
Abstract:
Hybrid-Electric distributed propulsion (HEDP) is becoming widely accepted and new tools will be required for future development with validation and demonstrations during ground and eventually flight testing. To monitor the overall HEDP system health in real time, a virtual requirement to flight… More
