Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N14A-T004
Budget: 02/17/16 - 02/19/18

The proposed research for Phase II of topic N14A-T004, Active Combustion Control of Augmentor Dynamics, has the objective of maturing the Augmentor Screech Active Suppression technology demonstrated successfully during Phase I by Knite, Inc. and the University of Cincinnati Gas Dynamics and Propulsion Laboratory. The work plan is intended to pro...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 07e
Budget: 07/27/15 - 07/26/17

There is a need to further develop the internal combustion engine to increase its efficiency and reduce emissions. The DoE has correctly concluded that presently utilized ignition technology is a limiting factor in further improvements. DoE has specified certain performance targets which it believes will enable the development of the next genera...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N151-016
Budget: 06/16/15 - 12/15/15

Knite Inc.?s Kinetic Spark Ignition (KSI) is a transformational ignition technology for combustion systems including turbine and augmentor applications. The KSI technology is based upon an electromagnetic plasma railgun that maintains much of the simplicity of conventional thermal plasma ignition while removing its limitations. Thus making it an...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Cincinnati

Agency: Navy
Topic: N14A-T004
Budget: 09/09/14 - 04/09/15

Directed plasma discharge using Knite Inc. s Kinetic Spark Ignition (KSI) hardware is proposed as a means to quell augmentor screech tone. Contrary to typical plasma ignitors, where plasma discharge is between anode and cathode, the KSI can discharge plasma into the flow in a reproducible manner. This controllability was used successfully on pro...

Topic: 07E-2014
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

There is a need to further develop the internal combustion engine to increase its efficiency and reduce emissions. In this RFP, DoE has correctly concluded that presently utilized ignition technology is a limiting factor in further improvements. DoE has specified certain performance targets which it believes will enable the development of the ne...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF093-165
Budget: 08/22/11 - 11/22/13

ABSTRACT: The USAF has identified a series of potential problems created by the capability limits of the present ignition technology. These limits are most pronounced at high altitude where low pressure and vitiated air produce an ignition limited condition. Knite s Kinetic Spark Ignition (KSI) is a transformational ignition technology which can...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF093-165
Budget: 03/09/10 - 12/20/10

The DoD has identified a series of potential problems created by the capability limits of present ignition technology. These limits are most pronounced at high altitude where low pressure and vitiated air with low oxygen produce an ignition limited condition. Kinetic Spark Ignition is a transformational ignition technology. KSI has demonstrat...
