Phase 2 SBIR Active

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 18e
Budget: 07/31/17 - 07/30/19

The SCO2 Brayton cycle is gaining interest across a variety of power generation applications due to its potential for providing higher efficiencies. These applications require compressors that operate near the critical point of CO2. However, compressor design at these conditions presents many challenges due to the lack simulation tools that acco...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 17d
Budget: 02/21/17 - 11/20/17

The SCO2 Brayton cycle is gaining interest across a variety of power generation applications due to its potential for providing higher efficiencies. The range of industrial applications include: industrial waste and heat recovery, coal and nuclear power plants, and renewable energy sources such as solar thermal and fuel cells. Direct fired SCO2 ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A14-007
Budget: 09/28/16 - 09/28/17

The proposed effort will formulate and demonstrate the methodology for fabricating Porous Ceramic Matrix Composite (PCMC) transpiration plates with controlled levels of porosity, suitable for high-speed/high-temperature missile applications. The porosity of the fabricated plates will be characterized and compared with traditional porous metallic...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A16-001
Budget: 09/28/16 - 03/27/17

In Phase I, our research team will focus on the fundamental interaction of the wake from a horizontal flat plate with a pusher-prop, using experimental and numerical techniques. The experimental campaign will include acoustic measurements at various locations along the airframe-propeller setup, characterizing the velocity distribution upstream ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A13-006
Budget: 09/19/16 - 09/18/17

A validated, advanced, detailed physics-based CFD capability to accurately model the separated flow physics immediately downstream in the base region of a propulsive supersonic/hypersonic missile with particle loading effects is developed. The high levels of turbulence in the plume have a primary effect on the structure of the base flow and gas/...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A16-007
Budget: 07/18/16 - 01/17/17

The development of innovative control concepts required for next generation maneuvering hypervelocity vehicles is proposed. The Armys requirement for future hypersonic vehicles with enhanced maneuverability and extended flight times requires the formulation of control concepts that address the deficiencies in established aerodynamic control tec...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A11-002
Budget: 07/11/16 - 07/10/17

Dynamic stall in rotorcraft blades still remains a challenging problem for the US Army since it limits the operability, maneuverability and flight speed of the rotorcraft. There are numerous documented instances of large impulsive blade pitching moments and loss of lift resulting from dynamic stall events. In this proposal our primary goal is e...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 18
Budget: 06/13/16 - 03/12/17

The SCO2 Brayton cycle is gaining interest across a variety of power generation applications due to its potential for providing higher efficiencies. The range of industrial applications include: industrial waste and heat recovery, coal and nuclear power plants, and renewable energy sources such as solar thermal and fuel cells. All of these cycle...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N161-003
Budget: 06/02/16 - 12/12/16

Aerial refueling is a mission-critical component of Navy operations. The refueling portion of a mission is made difficult by the inherent interference between the tanker and receiver aircraft. The receiver aircraft may experience various forms of disturbances while approaching the fuel hose and drogue, stressing the control system of an autonomo...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Georgia Tech Research Corp.

Agency: Army
Topic: A15A-T002
Budget: 09/02/15 - 02/25/16

The development of a high fidelity, generalized computational framework with the necessary physical submodels incorporated for the analysis of multiphase, combusting, internal and external ballistic flows is proposed. The focus in Phase I will be developing a framework based on an existing unstructured multi-element, fully implicit, CFD code to ...
