Research Institution
Under this program, an evaluation will be performed to select the optimum electric power generation package to meet electrical output requirements within the confines of the propulsion system architecture - based on the results of the Phase I SBIR. Additionally, system configuration and integration issues will be addressed in an effort to quantify the following: · Document the prime power generation needs for future USN UAV platform. · Perform trade studies to aid in selecting the optimum electric generation package with considerations toward:  Electrical system weight and performance  System drag characteristics  ECS bleed system  Thermal management system  Generator speed limitations · Perform trade studies to aid in selecting the optimum location for the electric generation package considering:  Low Pressure Spool (LPS) driven, engine internal mount locations  Electrical and oil service routing · Determine propulsion system requirements and trade-offs including net thrust effects, system weight, etc. · Perform a demonstration to reduce program risk. · Generate Detail Design Drawings for both the generator and packaging hardware (i.e., mounts, cables.)
