Refractory Metal Coating for Electromagnetic Launcher RailsSBC: TDA Research, Inc. Topic: N10AT025
Electromagnetic launchers or rail guns are a key component of the Navy’s all-electric ship of the future, but they lack the durability required for repeated firings. TDA Research and the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) are developing a tough, durable and conductive refractory metal coating that will protect the copper alloy conductors (rails) from the extreme heat and wear conditions inside the ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseNavy
Power-Dense Electrical Rotating Machines for Propulsion and Power GenerationSBC: CONTINUOUS SOLUTIONS Inc Topic: N19AT007
The primary objective is to develop electric machine/drive topologies and power architectures that achieve the power densities required for 50% more power without the increase in weight or space requirements. In addition to PMSM-based designs, two new machine topologies will be considered. The first is a trapped flux coreless (TFC) machine that utilizes superconducting pucks made of YBCO to produc ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
Low-Cost Ball/Air/Magnetic Hybrid Bearing System for Extended-Life Micro Gas Turbine EnginesSBC: XDOT ENGINEERING & ANALYSIS PLLC Topic: N10AT037
Micro gas turbine engines with state-of-the-art ultra-compact recuperators could be a real game-changer for small unmanned air vehicles and portable power generation. A key enabling technology for these engines is a low-cost, high speed bearing system that has long life, while operating without either a separate lubrication system, or oil in the fuel. For this Phase I STTR effort, Xdot Engineerin ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseNavy
Power Dense Turbo-Compression Cooling Driven by Waste HeatSBC: MANTEL TECHNOLOGIES INC Topic: N19AT013
The U.S. Navy seeks methods to improve the fuel economy of marine diesel engines through utilization of waste heat. Low temperature engine jacket water, lubrication oil, and aftercooler air are largely untapped streams of thermal energy on these ships, but their utilization circumvents many operation challenges associated with exhaust gases. For example, variable and high exhaust gas temperatures ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNavy
