Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N122-114
Budget: 08/04/14 - 12/30/16
PI: Yuntao Xu

High power pulse weapons have been proposed for decades. Prototype lasers have had some success in destroying surface and airborne targets. High power, high efficiency laser diodes are now available to pump the lasers but they need large amounts of power and energy storage. The instantaneous power loading that these pulsed weapons would demand f...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N08-181
Budget: 09/27/13 - 03/27/15
PI: Jim Munro

The Surface Warfare (SUW) Mk-50 Gun Mission Module (GMM) that houses the Mk-46 Gun Weapon System (GWS) is one of several key Mission Modules developed by PMS-420 that contribute to the tactical warfighting capability of the Littoral Combatant Ship (LCS). RCT Systems proposes to develop a power conversion system to replace the battery charger tha...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF112C-176
Budget: 01/02/13 - 03/15/15

ABSTRACT: Some military aircraft engines utilize fuel as the working fluid in engine nozzle actuation systems. RCT proposes a prototype design, build and test effort resulting in a high temperature, high reliability class of an electromagnetic actuator with minimal/no heat load on aircraft cooling systems. Size and weight are consistent with a...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N122-114
Budget: 11/09/12 - 05/10/13

High power pulse weapons have been proposed for decades. Prototype lasers, for example, have had some success in destroying surface and airborne targets. High power, high efficiency laser diodes are now available to pump the lasers but they still need large amounts of energy storage. A convenient way to utilize energy dense aircraft fuel is to t...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Florida State University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N12A-T022
Budget: 06/25/12 - 04/26/13

RCT Systems proposes to develop a conceptual design for an Intermediate Energy Storage Module (IESM) that will provide the energy storage, power electronics and controls necessary to keep high power pulse loads from disrupting the ship s distribution grid and allow the power system to meet the specifications in MIL-STD-1399. In its system tradeo...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A12-051
Budget: 05/05/12 - 11/15/12

There has been increasing concern about Energy Security and our reliance on foreign oil. Fuel delivery to FOBs has proven costly in terms of dollars and casualties to convoy personnel. Using renewable energy sources like wind power can reduce fuel consumption. For FOBs the ability to transport, set up, take down and repackage power generation an...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Florida State University

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF11-BT31
Budget: 03/20/12 - 12/24/12

ABSTRACT: RCT Systems, with Florida State University, MIT, and partners, will develop a fast transient Superconducting Magnet Energy Storage (SEMS) system model for aircraft and spacecraft applications requiring ultra high capacity and rapid charge/discharge rates in an energy and power dense package. A fully parametric, multi-physic model allo...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF112C-176
Budget: 12/02/11 - 09/02/12

ABSTRACT: RCT proposes a design and validation effort resulting in a high temperature, high reliability class of all electromagnetic actuator designs with minimal/no heat load on aircraft cooling systems. Size and weight are consistent with aircraft engine limits and are applicable to manned and unmanned vehicles. Actuator designs are consisten...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A11-023
Budget: 06/24/11 - 12/16/11

RCT Systems proposes a Thermoelectric Scalable Power Generator (TSPG) design capable of >300 Watts, operating continuous at 28 VDC in a package weighing 1.5) nanostructure thermoelectric materials are utilized. An embedded processor controls combustion, power management and DC/DC conversion. Design consideration of heat signature, noise, vibra...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N08-181
Budget: 05/18/10 - 05/17/11
PI: Jim Munro

The Navy s Next Generation Integrated Power System (NGIPS) Roadmap depends on the conversion of medium voltage AC (4160 13.8KV) to DC for shipboard electrical distribution systems. Satcon s medium voltage AC to DC converter topology supports the NGIPS architecture, allowing for galvanic isolation to provide ground fault isolation without the s...
