ABSTRACT: Exquadrum, Inc. proposes to develop an innovative multi-mode power generation system for hypersonic flight vehicles. This system produces the required power output that the flight vehicle demands, independent of the flight characteristics at the time. However, this system will work in conjunction with the propulsion system to augment the power generation capabilities. This is accomplished through improvements in the power generations efficiency, allowing for greater endurance capabilities. Application of this technology will provide the desired power generation performance, longevity, and reusability desired for future hypersonic platforms.; BENEFIT: During the Phase I effort, Exquadrum will conduct trade studies, combined multi-objective optimization strategies, to maximize the multi-mode power generations capabilities. In Phase II, Exquadrum will fabricate and test a scaled design of the multi-mode system to validate the Phase I predicted performance across all expected operating conditions of the flight vehicles mission profile.
