Agency / Branch: DOD / OSD
Principal Investigator: Srdjan Lukic, Electrical Engineer - PhD
Award Amount: $99,989.00
Abstract:
Turnkey Design Services, LLC of Blue Island, IL proposes to create a small lightweight "smart" fuel pump for unmanned vehicles using a small very efficient brushless motor with integrated controls and an internally-generated rotor pump. The overall size of the motor driven pump including electronics… More

Micro Fuel Pumps for Small, Heavy Fuel Engines

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Scott Borchers, Systems Engineer
Award Amount: $199,939.00
Abstract:
Small lightweight fuel pumps capable of supplying heavy fuels at low flows are currently needed for multiple IC and gas turbine engines under development by various engine manufacturers. The market need is for highly reliable and efficient pumps that extend the mission of UAVs, UGSs and UMSs. A very… More

Thermally Efficient Fuel Management Technology

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Robert Kennedy, President – (708) 293-1120
Award Amount: $98,116.00
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: Emerging platforms such as stealth aircraft have three to five times the heat load of legacy platforms while being limited in their ability to reject heat to the environment due to the reduction of vents, grills and inlets that create radar and infra-red hotspots. This increased heat… More

Thermally Efficient Fuel Management Technology

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Robert Kennedy, President – (708) 293-1120
Award Amount: $745,895.00
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: Turnkey Design Services of Blue Island IL proposes to develop and demonstrate that a gearbox driven, positive displacement variable delivery fuel system pump can be produced that will reduce thermal output by 35% and be comparable in weight/size to baseline aerospace centrifugal fuel… More

On Demand Oil Supply

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Robert Kennedy, President – (708) 293-1120
Award Amount: $403,725.00
Abstract:
State-of-the-art oil pumps in aircraft engines deliver a volumetric flow rate proportional to the rotor speed of the high-pressure engine core, which drive the pump via the engine gearbox. In emerging aircraft platforms, the fuel and oil systems are used to cool a variety of engine and airframe… More
