Abstract
Loss of the primary lubrication system in the power transmission system can result in an immediate or rapid failure of the drive system of military air and ground vehicles. This proposal offers a combination of two innovative and cost-effective technologies to improve the ability of power transmissions to withstand operation under loss-of-lubrication condition for significantly longer periods of time. The goal of the Phase I program is to demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed technologies under real world conditions.
