Research Institution
This Phase II program will result in the availability of a reduced cost increased capability robust SCRAMJET engine panel manufacturing method to support test/demonstration and production phases of the HySET and other Programs. It will support improvedengine designs by increasing design options that are available to advance the SCRAMJET engine technology in general. A custom manufacturing workcell will be built and technology development completed and implemented to machine SCRAMJET panels for testingunder HySET, ISTAR, Robust SCRAMJET, and other programs.Key data that will be made available to support engine developers includes manufacturability, quality and technical performance for various engine panel designs. The economic data that will be needed for support of future SCRAMJET program cost projectionswill also be an important outcome.With the Phase I proof of concept showing good success, it is anticipated that the completion of the proposed Phase II program will result in a 95% panel production cost reduction from the current $76,000 per engine set.The Phase I program has attracted over $130,000 in outside investment to contribute to the development and commercialization of this novel dual-use abrasive-jet machining technology in both commercial and defense markets.
