Award List:

Hypersonic Dispense Strategy for Adaptive Pattern Dispersion

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Kent Key, President
Award Amount: $69,885.00
Abstract:
This effort proposed is tailored for a hypersonic class missile "UAV" to evaluate the opportunity to optimize fragment dispersion as it relates to the engagement geometry and timing uncertainty for threat classes that are intercepted within the atmosphere. Store separation, or in the proposed… More

Missile Delivered UAV: Extended to Deep Strike Concepts

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Kent Key, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $69,981.00
Abstract:
Real-time availability of battle field data can be the difference between eliminating a threat thereby protecting the troops and/or assets or suffering heavy casualties and/or asset losses. It also provides a means to address targets of opportunity related to the ongoing war on terror. For many… More

High Density Phase Changing Missile Fuel

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Kent Key, Engineer – (256) 705-3810
Award Amount: $69,938.00
Abstract:
Fuel applications for scramjet powered flight greater than Mach 8 require the overall injection, mixing, and combustion process to complete in a very short period of time. Although hydrocarbons have very good fuel density, they are not capable of combusting within the time available. Hydrogen is the… More

Hypersonic Dispense Strategy for Adaptive Pattern Dispersion

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Kent Key, Engineer – (256) 705-3810
Award Amount: $729,997.00
Abstract:
The development of advanced interceptors addressing hit-to-kill against threats with the ability to maneuver poses significant challenges. Application of lethality enhancement devices in a hypersonic flowfield are strongly influenced by the blast chemistry, effective blast impulse applied to the… More

High Density Phase Changing Missile Fuel

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Kent Key, Aerospace Engineer – (256) 705-3810
Award Amount: $730,000.00
Abstract:
Fuel applications for scramjet powered flight greater than Mach 8 require the injection, mixing and combustion process to complete in a very short period of time. The one limiting factor restricting the speed at which a scramjet can operate relates directly to the time it takes for the fuel and air… More

High Porosity Ceramic Matrix Composite for Cooling and Drag Reduction

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2014 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Kent Key, Aerospace Engineer – (256) 705-3810
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
Historically, the porosity associated with ceramic matrix composite structures has been viewed as a detriment for many missile applications. The standard practice is to perform several treatment/retreatment processes to reduce the porosity to an acceptable level while increasing the strength of the… More
