Abstract
The proposed SBIR program will develop a thermal bus technology for cooling of the next generation vehicles. The Phase I effort will demonstrate the feasibility and benefits of full or partial insertion of the technology into an Army vehicle platform. Trade studies and conceptual designs will be conducted to quantify the technology benefits. Subscale, proof-of-concept components testing will be conducted to demonstrate the thermal performance. In Phase II, a full-scale thermal bus will be designed, constructed and tested in a wind tunnel under simulated operating conditions. Phase III will identify and develop military and commercial applications for the thermal bus technology.
