ABSTRACT: This proposal is the fusion of two major Phase II efforts with NAVAIR and AFRL. Innovative Electro-magnetic motor actuation is merged with a proprietary adaptive thermally dynamic shielding system. BENEFIT: High Temperature (extreme environment) tolerant electric actuation that can potentially replace pneumatics and hydraulics is an enabling technology. This technology if successfully developed would enhance distributed actuation systems design and architecture leveraging the design advantages of Sprung-brett's technology set and proprietary design methodology. The proposed system will replace the fuel-draulic actuator system currently employed on the STOVL 3BSD actuator. Thus reducing the thermal load on the F-35 STOVL system.
