A Pintle Nozzle With Thrust Vector Control

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$69,978.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator:
John Wickman, President
Abstract:
Tactical missiles can use pintle nozzles to control speed and wings to steer to targets, but this is inadequate for many targets. To hit a wider variety of targets, tactical missiles must be able to steer the rocket's exhaust gas. A common method of doing this is to use a separate TVC system. … More

Small Launch Vehicles (SLV) Technologies

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$99,679.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator:
John Wickman, President
Abstract:
Difficulties in using foreign air bases and airspace is constraining the Air Force from striking high-value, time critical targets. The Small Launch Vehicle (SLV) and Common Aero Vehicle (CAV) that deploys weapons over the target within minutes after being launched from the United States can solve… More

A Pintle Nozzle With Thrust Vector Control

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2006 / SBIR / Phase II
Award Amount:
$729,979.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator:
John Wickman, President
Abstract:
Tactical missiles need to control their speed and be able to steer to a wide variety of targets. They usually control their speed with thrust management via pintle nozzles and steer with movable fins. Additional steering is often provided with jet vanes that provide thrust vector control (TVC). … More

Hot Gas TVC For Planetary Ascent Vehicle

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$99,971.00
Agency:
NASA
Principal Investigator:
John Wickman, Principal Investigator
Abstract:
A Mars ascent vehicle (MAV) uses solid rocket motors to propel soil samples into orbit, but the motors cannot provide steering. Cold gas thrusters are used for initial steering and spin stabilization for the final stage of flight. This approach is heavy and results in a spinning sample container… More

Hot Gas TVC For Planetary Ascent Vehicle

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2011 / SBIR / Phase II
Award Amount:
$594,202.00
Agency:
NASA
Principal Investigator:
John Wickman, Principal Investigator
Abstract:
A Mars ascent vehicle (MAV) uses solid rocket motors to propel soil samples into orbit, but the motors cannot provide steering. Flexseal TVC control is planned for the first stage while hydrazine thrusters will be used for spin stabilization of the second stage. This approach is heavy and results… More
