Contract: N68335-08-C-0060
Award Amount: $80,000.00
 

Abstract:

The lowered cost of maintenance, lowered weight, and reduced installation complexity of smart electric actuators continues to justify the transition from hydraulic actuation to EMAs/EHAs. This SBIR proposal will extend the advantages of EMA technology into high-temperature, high-vibration applications with a first commercialization target being the JSF F35 Lightning II aircraft platform. During the SBIR Phases I research, PCKA will collaborate with NAVAIR and Lockheed Martin to establish the actuator requirements. Once the requirements are defined, PCKA will identify suitable actuator architectures for the application and then optimize the design in terms of weight, reliability, maintainability, manufacturability, and cost. Key design constraints will be the thermal and vibration environment which may necessitate the use of specific motor technologies, high-temperature wire insulation, lubrication, and electronics. In Phase II, PCKA will fabricate a prototype of the optimal design and perform qualification tests including EMI/EMC, vibration, shock, and altitude. If successful, developed technologies will ultimately transition to DoD programs under a Phase III contract.
