Award List:

Advanced Solid Oxidizer (ASO)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Martin Chiaverini, Principal Propulsion Engineer – (608) 229-2732
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: ORBITEC proposes to develop and synthesize a safe, high performance, high density solid oxidizer to replace Ammonium Perchlorate (AP) in solid propellants for use in booster, tactical, and strategic systems. The long sought replacement for ammonium perchlorate remains an unanswered… More

Advanced Near-Net Shape Metallurgy of Liquid Rocket Engine Components

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: J. A. Sauer, Aerospace Engineer – (608) 229-2752
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: ORBITEC proposes to develop and demonstrate a family of Low-Cost Thrust Chambers (LCTC) for use in future NASA exploration systems. Substantial cost savings will be realized in the production of the LCTCs with ORBITEC"s innovative hybrid fabrication technique. Hybrid fabrication… More

High Strength Cast Aluminum Alloys

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: J. Sauer, Aerospace Engineer – (608) 229-2752
Award Amount: $70,000.00
Abstract:
ORBITEC proposes to develop high strength cast aluminum alloys for use in Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle (EFV) structures. Using a new casting technique developed by MSOE, the cast alloys HPAC structures will achieve material properties similar to those of forged structures. The casting process is… More

Recoilless Launcher Propulsion System (RLPS)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Chris S. Clair, Principal Aerospace Engineer – (608) 229-2727
Award Amount: $70,000.00
Abstract:
ORBITEC proposes to develop the Recoilless Launcher Propulsion System (RLPS), a means of propelling a warhead from a shoulder-mounted recoilless launcher which will greatly reduce the risks posed to the operator by the back blast from such launchers, including over-pressure, high sound levels, and… More

Injector Stability Screening Technique (ISST)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Ryan Cavitt, Propulsion Engineer – (608) 229-2801
Award Amount: $746,528.00
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: ORBITEC proposes to demonstrate and validate a laboratory-scale experimental injector stability screening technique which will quantify injector element stability characteristics. The experimental approach promises to dramatically reduce development cost by utilizing a gaseous single… More

LED lighting for maximizing quality parameters in specialty crop production

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Robert C. Morrow, Senior Scientist – 608-229-2728
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
Convincing scientific evidence has associated dietary choices with chronic disease expression. Dietary guidelines now in place are designed to prevent the onset of such chronic diseases as tissue-specific cancers, cardiovascular diseases, and osteoporosis. The cornerstone of recommended dietary… More
