Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF121-169
Budget: 05/23/12 - 01/23/13

ABSTRACT: An oil-free bearing system can increase the reliability and decrease the cost and weight of high-speed cruise missile engines. Out of various oil-free systems the foil air bearing technology is the most suitable. Though foil air bearing technology is highly successful for lower temperature applications, they have not been demonstrate...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N091-054
Budget: 08/10/10 - 08/10/11

A low-cost, low maintenance helium circulator will be designed and demonstrated for use in High Temperature Superconducting (HTS) systems. The circulator design will feature an oil-free high-speed fan supported on foil gas bearings. The basis for this design has been extensively used and demonstrated by R&D Dynamics in other applications e.g. fu...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 11 B-2010
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

Most medium and large commercial and industrial facilities use packaged water chillers ranging from 50 ton capacity and up for air conditioning and refrigeration. Their current refrigerants are chemicals which will soon be phased out and replaced by environmentally benign alternative refrigerants of zero ozone-depletion and negligible global wa...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD08-EP3
Budget: 10/01/09 - 01/02/12

The proposed technology will reduce the size and weight of Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) power systems for unmanned air vehicle and munition (UAV) applications thus making future UAVs lighter and more fuel efficient. In addition, the proposed technology will further enable the Air Force to move toward more electric aircraft. The technological adv...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N091-054
Budget: 06/24/09 - 10/25/10

A low-cost helium circulator will be designed and demonstrated for use in High Temperature Superconducting (HTS) systems. The circulator design will feature an oil-free high-speed rotor supported on foil gas bearings. The basis for this design has been extensively used and demonstrated by R&D Dynamics in other applications e.g. fuel cells, at ve...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF083-117
Budget: 03/17/09 - 12/17/09

This program seeks to identify and demonstrate improved solid lubricant coatings for use on compliant foil air bearings for gas turbine application. The Phase 1 effort will be to evaluate selected coatings for improved low speed operation, typical of a gas turbine engine, and to investigate a motion limiting snubber system to best protect the be...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2009
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

Large multi-megawatt-size Integrated Gasification Fuel Cell power plants based on Solid Oxide Fuel Cells are being developed and planned for the near future. The efficiency of these plants can be improved by recycling part of the high temperature (800 °C to 850 °C) cathode air or anode gas effluent back to the system. In order to enable this...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 09-1
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

Developing a quiet fan for Environmental Control and Life Support systems to enhance the livable environment within the spacecraft has been a challenge. A Foil Gas Bearing Supported Fan is proposed which will be quiet, efficient, reliable, contamination free, compact, and lightweight.

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2009
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

Most medium and large commercial and industrial facilities use packaged water chillers of 50 ton capacity and higher for air conditioning and refrigeration. The current refrigerants used are HFC-134a or HCFC-123, which need to be replaced by an environmentally benign alternative that offers zero ozone-depletion and negligible global warming. A...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD08-EP3
Budget: 05/22/08 - 11/22/08

The proposed technology will reduce the size and weight of Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) power systems for unmanned air vehicle and munition (UAV) applications thus making future UAV's lighter and more fuel efficient. In addition, the proposed technology will further enable the Air Force s move toward more electric aircraft. The technological a...
