  1. Demonstration of a JP-8 Powered Compact ECU

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: OSD09T002

    Military shelters currently use electrically driven Environmental Control Units (ECUs) to provide cooling for the air inside the shelter. The ECU is vapor compression cycle powered by a diesel generator, operating on JP-8 fuel. Other than fueling jet engines, the largest drain on U.S. military fuel supplies in current operations comes from running generators at forward operating bases. In hot cli ...

  2. Modeling of Small-scale Tilt-rotor Unmanned Air Vehicles

    SBC: DRAGONFLY PICTURES, INC.            Topic: N09BT039

    DPI will be well positioned to deliver a fully functional prototype in Phase II that exceeds the proposed performance goals of: vertical take-off and landing, endurance of 37.5 hours, range of 3750km. The UAS will be powered by a combination of heavy fuel engines and electric auxiliary motors, and will be suited to deployment from a single vehicle (e.g., JLTV), by two operators. This 150 lb vehicl ...

  3. Low-Cost Ball/Air/Magnetic Hybrid Bearing System for Extended-Life Micro Gas Turbine Engines

    SBC: Nastec, Inc.            Topic: N10AT037

    A unique type of air lubricated thrust bearing called a Wave Bearing is proposed to assist a rolling element bearing to carry the thrust load and to improve the bearing’s life when used in a micro gas turbine engine. The Wave Bearing technology will provide improved reliability, safety and life compared to rolling element bearings used alone, as well as to allow simplification of engine design a ...

  4. Development of Surface Reaction Mechanism for C-SiC-SiO2-Rubber Composite Oxidation in Extreme Oxidizing Condition

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N10AT005

    The purpose of this STTR is to develop comprehensive detailed kinetics for oxidation of C-SiC-SiO2-rubber in extreme oxidizing environment. This material is used as a coating on the outer surface of Navy weapon systems. In order to predict the fate of this material under extreme conditions and mitigate the degradation of the coating, a comprehensive oxidation mechanism is required. In Phase I, CFD ...

  5. Analysis and Modeling of Foreign Object Damage (FOD) in Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMCs)

    SBC: N&R ENGNERING MGT SUPPORT SVCS            Topic: N10AT010

    The Phase I deliverable will be a physic-based model which represents a CMC gas turbine component concomitantly at the material level and the structural level. This model will be probabilistically analyzed to account for the uncertainties in material properties and the uncertainties in the size and impact velocities of possible foreign objects (FOD). A ceramic material must display sufficient capa ...

  7. Advanced Materials for the Design of Lightweight JP5/JP8/DS2 Fueled Engines for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)

    SBC: Northwest Uld, Inc.            Topic: N10AT001

    Northwest UAV Propulsion Systems proposes using our purpose built heavy fuel engine designed and built in the USA for small unmanned aerial systems in the tier 2 & 3 class. We will be adding a lightweight ceramic material set combined with FEA (Finite Element Analysis) and heavy fuel atomizer (IRAD Project) to create a lightweight engine for a SUAS or STUAS class UAVs. The Ceramic material set is ...

  8. Development of a Computational Method for Prediction of After-Burning Effect

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N10AT002

    The problem of interest is the development of a physics based model for conducting high-fidelity simulation of afterburning munitions, which are unique in that that they contain solid and/or liquid fuels that continue burning after the initial detonation to raise the temperature, enhance the overpressure, and strengthen secondary shock waves. From the standpoint of first-principles modeling, accur ...

  9. Wave Detection, Prediction, and Reaction System (WDPRS)

    SBC: DANIEL H. WAGNER ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: N10AT036

    In this project Daniel H. Wagner Associates (DHWA), with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) and MARK Resources, Inc. (MRI) as our subcontractors, will develop a lightweight, low-cost Wave Detection, Prediction, and Reaction System (WDPRS) that is designed to reduce the hazard of foundering and/or the violent shocks, pitches, and rolls resulting from improper handling of a small craft in elev ...

  10. Translation of Mission Directives to Behaviors Including Thresholds in Autonomous Undersea Search Sensor Elements of Distributed Sensing Systems

    SBC: DANIEL H. WAGNER ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: N10AT038

    Autonomous unmanned distributed sensing systems are in the process of revolutionizing undersea military search. The importance of search to military operations is greatest in the environment where detection is the most difficult, i.e. undersea operations. Now distributed sensing systems promise an order of magnitude reduction in search times for enemy undersea targets. In order to realize the pote ...
