Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB072-045
Budget: 02/23/09 - 05/30/10

Vaporcor LLC is developing a very high altitude (~90 kft) aircraft propulsion engine capable of meeting the stability, reliability, and environmental requirements suitable for use on a VHALE aircraft with 12-20 hour endurance that must be stored for months. Vaporcor s VHALE engine implements a closed loop Rankine thermodynamic cycle using super...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB052-026
Budget: 12/04/06 - 03/31/09

We propose an engine concept, which we call a Cart-Engine, which embodies both a thermodynamic cycle innovation and a mechanical innovation that can achieve exceptional efficiency, low mechanical vibration, and can burn multiple fuels. In addition, the manner in which the Cart-Engine functions promises the potential for low emissions, high powe...
