Abstract:

The goal of this SBIR project is to develop and demonstrate lightweight, low cost, drive shaft concepts for use in high performance rotating engine drive systems, with specific focus on the STOVL lift fan system. The product of Phase I of the SBIR program outlined in this proposal will be a lightweight graphite fiber reinforced composite drive shaft and end fitting design that meets the structural requirements of the JSF STOVL system. A proof-of-concept prototype tube will be fabricated during Phase I to establish manufacturing feasibility, verify weight estimates and support cost studies. The design concept and manufacturing approach builds on previous research that successfully demonstrated the structural robustness and weight and cost competitiveness of a Materials Sciences Corporation design developed for the V-22 Osprey wing drive system.
