Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB082-059
Budget: 12/16/10 - 03/31/13

GHKN Engineering, LLC teamed with Aerojet Recmond, proposes to build and test a CDRE with a number of fuels and oxidizers. Included in the proposal test program is thrust measurement, which together with mass flow measurement will be used to evalute CDRE performance, (and efficiency), of detonation combustion in these devices. The engine planned...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB082-059
Budget: 04/29/09 - 12/23/09

This proposal describes an approach to evaluate the continuous detonation phenomenon using a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) method for analyzing the critical factors needed to create a model of the detonation physics in a simulated engine. The work perfomed to define the operating parameters will be conducted using a program called MaxS as t...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A04-174
Budget: 05/10/06 - 05/30/08

GHKN Engineering, LLC and Aerojet Sacramento have joined together to develop a solid rocket motor (SRM) integrated thrust control system (ITCS) adaptable for a family of missile systems. These companies bring extensive experience in the key areas required for design and development of thrust management systems. During Phase I (ITCS), the design ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A04-174
Budget: 01/06/05 - 09/30/05

This proposal describes a feasibility study to evaluate several concepts for integrated thrust vector control of a tactical missile. The proposed designs include a moveable aeropintle capable of moving laterally as well as axially and a fluidic gas injection system with the goal of provide both thrust variation and thrust vector control. The va...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A03-149
Budget: 11/08/04 - 12/31/06

This proposal addresses a Phase II program to demonstrate the validity of combining two techniques for solid rocket motor control: a moveable pintle for thrust control and an aerospike plug nozzle for nozzle efficiency over a 15:1 turn-down range. The goal of this program is demonstration of a solid propellant motor which can be throttled multip...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A03-149
Budget: 01/28/04 - 08/23/04

An innovative nozzle concept is proposed to enable variable thrust solid rocket motors to operate with minimal loss in efficiency over a wide thrust range. The proposed approach will also allow commanded near-extinguishment of the motor, and more controllable start transients. The approach will be compatiable with an adaptive control system to a...
