Abstract:

AED Corp., Digital-Engines, and C-K Engineering will structure and focus their collective expertise to design, optimize technologies, build, test, and develop a 650-hp advanced diesel technologies demonstrator. The work will be supported by AED's Phase II Advanced Military Diesel Engine (AMDE) program. During Phase I this team of experts will incorporate AMDE design features, specifications, and performance targets into custom modeling and simulation programs. Phase I Option: an AMDE will be reconfigured to test and validate the sample model and simulation programs. The Phase II program will be incorporated with AMDE work to explore all the technologies potentially beneficial to achieving the 42% fuel efficiency. Optimized technologies will be incorporated in a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) based, dyno test and developed 650-hp prototype. AED's current AMDE program is hardware test and development oriented. Adding modeling and simulation, validated by AMDE demonstrators, is an ideal program to quickly explore and advance the diesel technologies needed to develop and produce a dual use range of horsepower size fuel efficient, high power density, advanced diesel engines needed to power Future Combat System (FCS) vehicles including hybrid electric - manned and unmanned. This proposal brings together the current and previous TACOM directed SBIR work of both AED and C-K Engineering in a delivered product that directly benefits the individual soldier and is invaluable to TACOM in its quest for advanced propulsion systems.
