  1. High Suction Specific Speed Inducers for Cryogenic Upper Stage Engines

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: N/A

    There is a significant opportunity to meet higher upper stage engine performance levels by combining a much higher chamber pressure expander cycle engine with advanced technology turbomachinery. The Phase II SBIR goal is to provide a solid foundation foran upper stage engine design focused on IHPRPT goals. Three main Phase II technical objectives must be met to achieve this goal: 1) finalize th ...

  2. Intelligent Virtual Rotor-Bearing System Design

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Lateral analysis of multi-level or multi-spool turbofan and turbojet engines has been regularly performed for more than 30 years by commercial engine manufacturers. Similarly, engine bearing designers also possess the ability to perform detailed analysisof bearing for the purpose of calculating operating characteristics (e.g., component operating temperatures) and determine statistical distribut ...

  3. Advanced Cooling Techniques for Hydrocarbon Liquid Rocket Engine Components

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Developing new techniques for combustion chamber cooling are critical to increasing engine life to 60 missions or greater. Concepts NREC will explore several chamber cooling options that minimize or eliminate coking increasing engine chamber life withoutsacrificing performance or adding cost. The proposed Phase I study will investigate methane as the hydrocarbon propellant for cooling along with ...

  5. Variable Sweep Adaptive Airframe

    SBC: QorTek, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    QorTek has teamed with Boeing Corporation to propose an advanced multi-regime variably swept design that builds on earlier work done on variable geometry aerostructures. The design is suitable for short-range high-speed strike or long-range loiteringattack by air-launched weapon systems. It also has an intermediate design point that enables high maneuverability. The design uses a compact form fact ...

  8. Lightweight Titanium Heat Exchangers

    SBC: Materials Resources International            Topic: N/A

    The evolution of materials in advanced aircraft continues and there is emerging interest from the U.S. Air Force to move titanium alloys into heat exchangers for advanced aircraft. Titanium substitution will lower the weight of nickel base alloy heatexchangers by over 30%, leading to increased fuel economies and performance. The proposed Phase II effort will select a typical aircraft stainless ste ...

  9. Aircrew Bladder Relief Capability

    SBC: Omni Measurement Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Omni Measurement Systems, Inc. of South Burlington, Vermont is developing safe, self-powered, semi-automatic bladder relief systems for male and female aircrew members. These hands-free, odor-free systems will permit aircrew members to concentrate onmission objectives without distraction or interruption. The systems can be used without the aircrew member having to unbuckle seat belts and harnesses ...

  10. Artificial Dielectrics for High Power Microwave Applications

    SBC: FOCIA, RONALD J            Topic: N/A

    The scientific feasibility of fabricating lightweight artificial dielectric (AD) materials was demonstrated in the Phase I effort. The electrical performance of the AD materials was not optimal. Time constraints necessitated using readily availablematerials and it was known a priori that these materials would not offer the best performance. However, it was demonstrated that an AD material could ...
