Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD13-PR1
Budget: 01/30/14 - 10/30/14

Kinetic BEI, LLC. proposes a dual path approach to fulfilling the need for a direct injected heavy fuel delivery system for engines under 200 Hp. The primary focus will be to advance the Miniature CI Fuel Injection System, a system whose individual components have been demonstrated in on-engine testing in a laboratory environment. The new syst...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Southwest Research Institute

Agency: Navy
Topic: N10A-T033
Budget: 09/06/11 - 03/06/13

Phase II will enable KBEI to demonstrate a complete high pressure Micro Injection System on a Navy UAV engine in a laboratory environment. While the Micro Injectors and Micro Pump have been successfully proven at lower pressures, this STTR program has facilitated research and development of a higher pressure injection system designed for use wit...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: SB082-010
Budget: 08/05/10 - 11/12/12

The Phase II effort will fund development of a single disk Nutating Engine paired with an alternator system, that will operate as an auxiliary power unit (APU). The Nutating Engine/Generator will have target power of 5KW with a power density of 13.9 kW/Cu.Ft. and will be designed to run on heavy fuel (diesel, JP-5, JP-8). Development will inclu...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Southwest Research Institute

Agency: Navy
Topic: N10A-T033
Budget: 06/28/10 - 10/07/11

Kinetic BEI intends to design an electronically controlled, common rail, heavy fuel injection system suitable for application on engines in the 5-20 Hp range. The system will feature a Micro Fuel Injector and Micro Pump that are currently under development. This Phase I STTR will focus on developing the complete heavy fuel injection system, comp...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD08-UM4
Budget: 11/02/09 - 01/26/12

Kinetic BEI is developing a very compact and simple self-regulating, heavy fuel micro pump. This SBIR Phase II will provide the opportunity to advance this emerging technology for use on multiple small/micro engine development programs, in both the military and commercial worlds. The Phase I effort resulted in a functioning prototype that met...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD08-UM1
Budget: 08/27/09 - 12/15/11

Kinetic BEI intends to design, build and test Gen 3 and Gen 4 Micro Injectors during this SBIR Phase II program incorporating data from Gen 2 testing, further CFD and FEA analysis, and design for manufacturability. The design concept was proven during Phase I, with bench testing of a Gen 2 Micro Injector. A significant amount of spray pattern ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB082-010
Budget: 12/15/08 - 08/30/09

The Nutating Disk Engine is a new technology with significant advantages, and multiple potential military and commercial applications. Development work has focused on a dual-disk version of the engine, including a demonstrator prototype. Second-generation prototype is currently in development. This DARPA program provides an opportunity design...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD08-UM4
Budget: 06/18/08 - 12/18/08

Kinetic BEI and Beginning Technologies Inc. have designed a very compact and simple micro-injection pump. This SBIR Phase I will provide the opportunity to further advance this emerging technology for use on several current miniature/micro engine development programs for the military and commercial worlds. The pump was designed to provide high...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD08-UM1
Budget: 06/10/08 - 12/10/08

Kinetic BEI intends to design, build and test MicroJectors during this SBIR Phase I contract. A first generation prototype of the MicroJector currently exists. This SBIR would provide the opportunity to expand on previous work, fine-tuning the mechanical design of the miniature fuel injection system and bench testing second-generation prototype...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF071-152
Budget: 05/07/08 - 09/22/11

A compact heavy fueled engine is progressing from a desire to a requirement. A miniature Meyer Nutating Disk Engine provides the means of propulsion that the military has been seeking. An unmanned air vehicle (UAV) will have capabilities that are not currently possible with present internal combustion engines. The miniature high power density Me...
