Award List:

High Effectiveness Heat Exchanger for Cryogenic Refrigerators

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2003 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$69,777.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / MDA
Principal Investigator:
Jack M. Fryer, President
Abstract:
Cryocoolers are small-scale cryogenic refrigerators with refrigeration capacities ranging from a few milli-Watts to several 10's of Watts. The two main classes of cryocoolers are regenerative and recuperative, with the distinction being made by the majorheat exchanger type required. Within the… More

Compact 10K Hybrid Cryocooler

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$97,726.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / MDA
Principal Investigator:
Jack M. Fryer, President
Abstract:
Long life mechanical cryocoolers for space applications have matured during the last decade, and 77 K and 35 K coolers are now available. However, 10 K equivalents are not available because fundamental regenerator performance limitations are being reached making them relatively power inefficient. … More

Award Amount:
$98,250.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / MDA
Principal Investigator:
Jack M. Fryer, President
Abstract:
Cryocoolers are small-scale cryogenic refrigerators with refrigeration capacities ranging from a few milli-Watts to several tens of Watts. The two main classes of cryocoolers are regenerative and recuperative, with the distinction being made by the major heat exchanger type required. Within the… More

High Effectiveness Heat Exchanger for Cryogenic Refrigerators

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$69,756.00
Agency:
NASA
Principal Investigator:
Jack Fryer, Principal Investigator
Abstract:
We propose an innovative high performance cryogenic heat exchanger manufactured of titanium by photo-etching and diffusion bonding. This is a parallel plate design of thin laminated titanium foils. Titanium is used because of it low thermal conductivity which allows more compact heat exchangers with… More

Advanced Cold Head Manufacturing Techniques

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2006 / SBIR / Phase II
Award Amount:
$696,140.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / MDA
Principal Investigator:
Jack M. Fryer, President
Abstract:
Applications for long life cryocoolers include missile detecting and tracking, space and ground surveillance, mapping, weather monitoring, supercomputers/workstations, Earth resources monitoring, astronomy and space-based laser. Cryocoolers are an enabling technology for missions with low… More

Self Contained Two-Phase Thermal Management System

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$69,046.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator:
Jack M. Fryer, President
Abstract:
Thermal management is a growing problem in all areas of military systems, due to increased use of electronic systems, and more stringent requirements on efficiency, size, and weight. In the case of next generation Army ground vehicles, heat sources will provide significant heating at various… More

Microplate Heat Exchanger

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$99,358.00
Agency:
NASA
Principal Investigator:
Jack M. Fryer, Principal Investigator
Abstract:
We propose a microplate heat exchanger for cryogenic cooling systems used for continuous flow distributed cooling systems, large focal plane arrays, multiple cooling locations, and very low vibration cooling systems. Any DC cryogenic flow system such as turbo Brayton, Joule-Thomson (JT), or remote… More

Advanced Turbine Blade Cooling Techniques

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$99,321.00
Agency:
NASA
Principal Investigator:
David S. Underwood, Principal Investigator
Abstract:
Gas turbine engine technology is constantly challenged to operate at higher combustor outlet temperatures. In a modern gas turbine engine, these temperatures can exceed the blade and disk material limits by 600<SUP>o</SUP>F or more, necessitating both internal and film cooling schemes in… More

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$99,422.00
Agency:
NASA
Principal Investigator:
Jack Fryer, Principal Investigator
Abstract:
Our team proposes to define a diffusion bonding process for aluminum as an enabling step to ultimately develop an innovative, lightweight, long life, aluminum combustion chamber technology for Non-toxic NOFBX<SUP>TM</SUP> monopropellant In-Space 100 lbf rocket thrusters and rocket… More

$746,314.00
Agency:
NASA
Principal Investigator:
Jack Fryer, Principal Investigator
Abstract:
Gas turbine engine technology is constantly challenged to operate at higher combustor outlet temperatures. In a modern gas turbine engine, these temperatures can exceed the blade and disk material limits by 600¿F or more, necessitating both internal and film cooling schemes in addition to the use… More

Lightweight Recuperators for Small Turbine Engines

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$99,102.00
Agency:
DOD
Principal Investigator:
David Underwood, Senior Analyst – (714) 227-9025
Abstract:
Turbine engines can significantly reduce fuel consumption by using a recuperator to heat compressor discharge air with heat from combustion exhaust gases. This increased fuel efficiency is offset by the weight and pressure losses added by the recuperator, so these must be minimized, especially for… More
