Title: Internal Combustion (IC) Engine/Electric Hybrid Power/Propulsion System for Small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Contract: W911W6-12-C-0028
Award Amount: $749,998.00
 

Abstract:

The proposed effort to develop a modular Hybrid UAV Propulsion system whereby the best ICE or Turbine generator can be integrated as it is developed. Northwest UAV Propulsion Systems will work with AMRDEC and utilize the data collected on several EM and ESC that AMRDEC has tested over the last year. Over the next 24 months, NW UAV will utilize Wind Tunnel (WT) data on an EM/VPP combination, to potentially conduct round 2 of AMRDEC demo by flying a twin-prop EM Shadow. This would favor 3 VPP deliverables (1 for ground and WT testing, and 2 for flight demo) integrated with Electric Motor. The focus of the proposed effort is on the electro-mechanical segment of the propulsion module (EM, ESC, batt, VPP, VPP control), while making assumptions and emulating the generator.
