  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. MANERVA: Mission Assessment of Non-Manned Entities for Rating the Validation of Autonomy

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: OSD09T004

    The dependability, persistence, and versatility of unmanned systems have made them indispensable assets in today’s warfighting. As they are tasked to fulfill new missions in unpredictable, dynamic environments, they are transitioning from remote control into the realm of autonomy. Here they perform rapid and semi-autonomous behaviors, such as re-planning and re-tasking, to accomplish mission obj ...

  3. Validation and Evaluation of Remote, Interactive Teams of Autonomous Systems (VERITAS)

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: OSD09T004

    different modes, while using different combinations of subsystems. This presents a challenge for the personnel validating the system during design and development; the number of combinations of environments, modes, and subsystems is exponential. They cannot all be tested, so an optimal subset of tests must be run. We propose to develop VERITAS: Validation and Evaluation of Remote, Interactive Tea ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Developing a Detailed Chemical Kinetic Model for C-SiC-SiO2-Rubber Composite Materials Exposed to High Temperature, High Pressure, Oxidizing Environme

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N10AT005

    The objective of this proposed Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) effort is to develop an experimentally-validated, highly detailed chemical kinetic reference model of surface chemistry for C-SiC-SiO2 rubber composite materials exposed to high temperature, high pressure, oxidizing environments. This reference model will then be reduced into simplified reduced-order models that could be easi ...

  6. Adaptive Turbine Engine Control for Stall Threat Identification and Avoidance

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: N10AT008

    Aurora Flight Sciences and MIT propose to develop a model-based adaptive health estimation and real-time proactive control to identify gas turbine engine stability risks and avoid them through control action. In this concept, the engine control system actively monitors sensors and actuators, compares them against physical models, and infers which components may be performing poorly and may need to ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Prediction of the Full-Scale Cook-off Response Based on Small-Scale Testing

    SBC: Corvid Technologies LLC            Topic: N10AT011

    The objective of this proposed effort is to continue the development of Corvid’s existing modeling and simulation framework to provide an innovative methodology used to predict the response of full-scale weapons systems to fast cook-off (FCO) and slow cook-off (SCO). Ammunition presents a special problem where no reliable and inexpensive sub or small scale testing capability has been identified. ...

  9. Dynamic Physical/Data-Driven Models for System-Level Prognostics and Health Management

    SBC: Global Strategic Solutions, LLC            Topic: N10AT009

    Prognostics and health management (PHM) systems are critical for detecting impending faults and enabling a proactive decision process for maintenance or replacement of avionics systems before actual failures occur. A PHM system is essential to enhancing aircraft systems reliability and maintaining a high level of mission readiness and affordability. Current PHM advancements are focused on aircraft ...

  10. 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 ...
