44 Awards Won

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A15-065
Budget: 09/21/15 - 03/20/16

Rocky Research proposes the development of an advanced high efficient, lightweight, multi-power, modular, and rugged refrigerator for the US Army. Rocky Research will use innovative technologies such as improved vapor-compression cycle with addition of Phase-Change Material, ejectors, and variable speed technology for energy efficiency; Electron...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A09-090
Budget: 03/30/12 - 03/30/14

The principal objective of this effort is to develop an advanced complex compound for ammonia-solid absorption chillers and demonstrate the enhanced sorbent for a 18,000 BTU/hr technology demonstrator in the Phase II effort. Phase I experimental data showed that it is feasible to make a fuel-fired sorption cooling system capable of 18,000 Btu/hr...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A10-164
Budget: 03/05/12 - 03/14/14

Proposed is the continuation of development of a High Efficiency Mobile Ice Maker (HEMIM) for the Army that is capable of integrating DC power from solar PV cells. The proposed ice maker will include a variable capacity vapor compression system with variable air flow as per ambient temperatures. The Performance of the high efficiency cycle will ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF103-163
Budget: 01/24/12 - 01/24/14

ABSTRACT: Thermal energy storage for load smoothing can be beneficial in applications having large transient heat load compared to steady-state heat rejection. Laser weapons and high-power microwave generators are examples where TES can help. Ammoniated complex compound systems can provide heat absorption due to exothermic dissociation of the ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N112-164
Budget: 10/11/11 - 08/10/12

An estimated 20% of a US Navy ship s total fuel consumption is due to heating, ventilation and air-conditioning. Reduction in electrical consumption of Navy ship Fan Coil Assemblies with increased energy efficiency is necessary for fuel savings. Rocky Research proposes an advanced Fan Coil Assembly Unit with high efficiency heat exchangers, low-...

Proposed is the development of a High Efficiency Mobile Ice Maker (HEMIM) for the Army that is capable of integrating DC power from solar PV cells. The proposed ice maker will include a variable capacity vapor compression system with variable air flow as per ambient temperatures. The Performance of the high efficiency cycle will be enhanced by t...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF103-163
Budget: 01/07/11 - 10/07/11

Thermal energy storage for load smoothing can be beneficial in applications having large transient heat load compared to steady-state heat rejection. Laser weapons and high-power microwave generators are examples where TES can help. Ammoniated complex compound systems can provide heat absorption due to exothermic dissociation of the complex co...

Phase 1 SBIR

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

The proposed project addresses the need for an efficient cost-effective building cooling system which is powered by solar heat collected using low to medium temperature solar collectors. Such a system avoids the need for expensive high-temperature solar collectors and has potential to result in a truly cost-effective system that could achieve si...

Phase 2 SBIR

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

The proposed project is for the development of a low cost, high efficiency solar cooling system. The system makes use of novel low cost mid temperature solar collectors in conjunction with a unique solar driven continuously variable speed absorption chiller to provide cost effective air conditioning. The approach used in this effort is to prove ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A09-090
Budget: 12/23/09 - 06/23/10

In this Phase I effort Rocky Research proposes a novel heat actuated cooling technology capable of providing air-conditioning and heating at high and low ambient temperatures. The solid-gas absorption technology is based on highly efficient complex compound technology employing variable capacity operation with pulsing refrigerant flow control a...
