A Fast-Response, Electronically Controlled Fuel Injection System for Small Heavy Fuel Engines with Multi-Fuel CapabilitiesSBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORP Topic: N10AT033
Advances in electronically controlled injection technologies for diesel engines have provided a method to improve medium- to heavy-duty engine performance through increased injection pressures, multiple injections, and injection rate shaping. Although these injection systems have been primarily limited to larger engines, the ability to rapidly and precisely meter fuel for smaller engines is partic ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseNavy
Innovative Passive Magnetic Thrust Bearings for High-Speed TurbomachinerySBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORP Topic: N10AT037
In miniature gas turbines for UAV applications, traditional bearings exhibit a typical lifetime of only 25 hours due to excessive axial loading. Mainstream proposes to use a passive, permanent magnet thrust bearing to alleviate this problem and increase service life to over 1000 hours. Since this type of bearing is non-contacting, it can operate at very high rotational speeds with minimal heat gen ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseNavy
Demonstration of a JP-8 Powered Compact ECUSBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORP 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 ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseNavy
A Fiber-Optic-Based External Pipe Sound Pressure Level Sensing SystemSBC: INTELLIGENT FIBER OPTIC SYSTEMS CORP Topic: N10AT016
Intelligent Fiber Optic Systems Corporation (IFOS) and Georgia Tech propose a fiber Bragg grating (FBG) integrated sensor system capable of measuring the pipe wall "breathing mode" in order to infer the fluid-borne sound pressure level (SPL) in a pipe. The proposed new measurement technique makes it possible to externally measure the fluid-borne sound level in a noisy piping system. The state-of-a ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseNavy
End-to-end Naval Asset Damage Detection SystemSBC: INTELLIGENT FIBER OPTIC SYSTEMS CORP Topic: N10AT042
IFOS will demonstrate the feasibility of a minimalistic, yet powerful, distributed network of piezoelectric actuators and ultrasonic wave detecting fiber optic Bragg grating (FBG) sensors interrogated by a high frequency parallel processing FBG interrogator together with innovative mathematical and computational algorithms to process, store and visualize (via damage index maps) massive amounts of ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseNavy
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
