Abstract:

Not Available This SBIR Phase I Research Proposal seeks to develop a new phenomena, high pressure electrokinetic (HPEK)pumping, for the development of high force, compact, and low power consumption actuators suitable for a variety of aerospace applications. The Phase I Research will demonstrate the utility of HPEK-based systems by combining them with micromachined structures to effectively translate the high pressure hydraulic flow into usable work. Specific applications are outlined which can employ HPEK technology, including an ultra-compact rock crushing device. The key actuator system for this device will be constructed and tested in order to assess the feasibility for use in sample retrieval and handling systems.
