Abstract
This SBIR Phase 2 project will develop and demonstrate a 300-500W heavy fuel engine to provide modular power for an Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV). The engine will be a Modified Commercial Off The Shelf (M-COTS) gasoline engine that will operate on DF2, JP8, other heavy fuels as well as gasoline in an emergency. The project will test, validate and deliver a prototype, along with a Final Report on the test procedures followed. In addition to the engine and its control system, the prototype will include a starter-generator and power conversion electronics for bi-directional hybrid-electric power transfer. Specific objectives for the Phase 2 include development of a M-COTS heavy fuel engine based on a COTS gasoline engine, fabrication of engine components, assembly of engine, testing of the engine on a dynamometer, post-run inspections of engine, revisions as needed, selection of an optimum motor/generator and power electronics, definition, design, fabrication and optimization of a FADEC for the system, assembly of a'Power Core'with the M-COTS HFE, M/G and power electronics, testing and optimization of the power core, data processing and reporting.
