Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF99-179
Budget: 06/12/13 - 09/10/14

ABSTRACT: Technical Directions Inc. (TDI) has developed a family of low cost propulsion systems for small air vehicles that will provide all necessary propulsion functions for sustained flight. A turbine-based engine-generator is utilized to provide the vehicle propulsion and all necessary electrical power for onboard functions within a small i...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-192
Budget: 01/29/10 - 05/04/12

Technical Directions Inc. (TDI) has demonstrated a state-of-the-art method of designing small turbine engine compressor and turbine components for very small turbojet engine-generator applications. This program will transfer this technology to compact Auxiliary Power Units (APUs) for airborne and ground based weapon system applications where mo...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-192
Budget: 08/28/06 - 03/30/12

Small low-cost propulsion systems are required for a variety of new unmanned air vehicle applications. Turbojet engine-generator systems are considered desirable for these small aircraft applications where compact size and low-cost are critical parameters. Technical Directions Inc. has developed a family of very low-cost turbojet engines for t...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF99-179
Budget: 03/25/00 - 04/30/03

This accelerated program has provided a unique low-cost propulsion system for the Low Cost Autonomous Attack System (LOCAAS) weapon and other miniature smart munition systems. Combined commercial and SBIR-Phase I funding in the initial stage of this program has provided a new, fully operational, engine-generator systems for small air vehicle ap...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF99-179
Budget: 04/12/99 - 10/13/99

This program will provide a unique low-cost propulsion system for the Low Cost Autonomous Attack System (LOCAAS) weapon and other smart miniature munition systems. The initial phase of this program will start prior to the SBIR program and will be supported by commercial funding to accelerate the schedule for the design and hardware fabrication. ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A90-268
Budget: 08/11/92 - 12/04/94

The technical feasibility of an integral starter/generator for small turbojet engines was established in the initial phase of this program. Test results show that the electrical starting system can provide engine starts that are as fast as pyrotechnic equipment starts. The Phase I results show that a small turbojet engine can be started and ac...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A89-039
Budget: 08/27/91 - 02/28/92

A low-cost, small turbojet engine has been designed using currently available high-production turbocharger core components, and two complete engine assemblies will be delivered. Th turbocharger components have near state-of-the-art performance, and the turbojet engine will also have near state-of the-art performance at truly expendable engine c...
