Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 11-2-X10.01
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

Fluid handling applications in cryogenic and extreme environments require reliable actuation technology that can handle extreme temperatures, mechanical bind-up from ice and foreign contaminants, and operation in poor conditions. A novel EM hammer drive technology is proposed for use in cryo-propellant fuel storage and regulation valves/devices...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 11-1-X10.01
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

Cryogenic fluid handling applications require a reliable actuation technology that can handle very low temperatures. A novel EM hammer drive technology is proposed for use in cryo-propellant fuel storage and regulation valves/devices. In addition to high force, the new drive technology offers potential advantages for miniaturization, reduction...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 09-2-X8.01
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

Cryogenic fluid valves are subject to harsh exposure and actuators to drive these valves require robust performance and high reliability. DSM's piezoelectric actuators offer advantages over traditional alternative actuator technology. However, in order to use piezoceramic actuators in cryogenic fluid handling applications, proof of operational...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-1-X8
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

Piezoelectric actuators constructed with the "smart material" PZT offer many potential advantages for use in NASA cryo-valve missions relative to conventional electromagnetic-driven mechanical actuators. In addition to their very high resolution (a benefit to nanopositioning applications for many years), they offer potential advantages for mini...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 09-2
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

Piezoelectric motors operate on the principal of converting the high-frequency oscillation of high-force, precision ceramic elements into useful continuous motion. High-power oscillations are converted to rotary motion through novel transmission mechanisms to produce high-torque, precision motion. Dynamic Structures and Materials (DSM) focused ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 08-1
Budget: 01/01/08 - 12/31/08

Piezoelectric motors operate on the principal of high frequency oscillation of high force precision ceramic elements. The high power oscillations are converted to rotary motion through a novel conversion mechanism to produce high torque precision motion when compared with traditional electromagnetic motors. Dynamic Structures and Materials (DS...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2003
Budget: 01/01/03 - 12/31/03

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will develop a piezoelectric motor-drive with Ultra-High-Vacuum (UHV) compatibility for high-speed driving of positioning platforms. The proposed piezoelectric motor-drive will provide an as-yet unrealized combination of several desirable characteristics: nanometer and sub-nanometer precisi...
