Award Amount: $149,998.00
Abstract:
The primary objective of the proposed effort is to develop a real-time thermal capacity algorithm. The algorithm will be capable of quantifying remaining thermal capacity providing an assessment of mission capability. The algorithm will be derived from detailed models of the thermal management… More

High Density, High Efficiency Electrical Power Generation

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Marco Amrhein, Senior Lead Engineer – (765) 464-8997
Award Amount: $80,000.00
Abstract:
Electrical starter/generators (ESGs) have become increasingly complex in design and integration due to significant power demand increases in more electric aircraft initiatives such as the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF). These new ESG systems must provide high performance and high efficiency with limited… More

Robust Aircraft Electrical Power System Architectures

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Jason Wells, Director, Engineering Ser – (765) 464-8997
Award Amount: $149,999.00
Abstract:
The move to more-electric architectures during the past decade in military and commercial airborne systems continues to increase the complexity of designing and specifying the electric power system (EPS). The addition of numerous high-power electric loads has drastically altered the dynamics of… More
