Abstract
ABSTRACT: Northwest UAV Propulsion Systems Develops and Manufactures heavy fuel engines for UAVs and is proposing using a purpose built engine for a ScanEagle sized UAS combined with a novel Axial Flux Motor/Generator system and a electric clutch system currently availalbe as a COTS item. We have teamed with Oregon State University for control design & Insitu Inc. for acoustical & flight testing to develop a hybrid propulsion system that provides adequate mission performance with stealth capabilities. BENEFIT: Duration, decreased noise signature for ISR and Border Control Missions, hybrid vehicle design, small diesel generation units for plug-in electric vehicles, Aircraft Axilary Power Units.
