Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N112-093
Budget: 03/13/13 - 09/12/14

The trend of replacing hydraulic and pneumatic drive systems with power electronics and electrical drives has led to significant increases in the on-board power requirements in military aircraft. Although electrical systems are typically highly efficient, still a significant portion of the electrical energy is eventually converted into heat, thu...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N112-093
Budget: 10/26/11 - 04/26/12

The trend of replacing mechanical drive systems with power electronics and electrical drives has led to significant increases in the on-board power requirements in military aircraft. Although electrical systems are typically highly efficient, still a significant portion of the electrical energy is eventually converted into heat, thus leading to ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N08-223
Budget: 04/23/09 - 10/23/09

ATEC, in collaboration with the Smart and Small Thermal Systems Laboratory at the University of Maryland, proposes the development of low-profile, air-cooled heat sinks for use in cooling electronic modules, such as the Ground Mobile Radio communications systems. These heat sinks will be much smaller than other air-cooled heat sinks because of t...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Maryland

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2007
Budget: 01/01/07 - 12/31/07

Many industrial processes involve the transfer of heat from one medium to another. Thermal fluids and heat exchangers are often used as part of these processes. However, besides water or aqueous solutions, the other thermal fluids have thermal properties much lower than water, so larger heat exchangers or pumps are required. This project wil...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA04-030
Budget: 09/07/06 - 09/06/08

This project addresses the need for high performance IR LEDs for scene generation in hardware-in-the-loop facilities and for the in situ calibration of IR optics in seekers and reconnaissance satellites. The Ioffe Institute has developed leading technologies to produce LEDs with high output, low operating voltage, and low thermal resistance. T...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF04-147
Budget: 05/09/05 - 09/09/07

We propose to develop a space-ready instrument that can accurately measure the emissivities, absorptivities, and long term stabilities of several passive and active coatings or thermal structures simultaneously. This technique provides a direct measure of the heat flowing through the surface using heat flux sensors, so the performances of the t...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2005
Budget: 01/01/05 - 12/31/05

79237 Although solid-state power modules are becoming increasily important components in energy systems (e.g., wind turbines) and in vehicle propulsion systems (e.g., hybrid vehicles), the requirements for these power modules are beginning to exceed the limits of silicon-based power modules. Therefore, a switch to silicon carbide power modules,...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA04-030
Budget: 09/11/04 - 03/11/05

Long standing relationships with the Ioffe Institute have allowed ATEC to license novel LED technologies developed by Matveev and co-workers, including InGaAs LEDs that emit in the 3 to 5 um region and Negative Luminescence devices that are capable of simulating objects at temperatures below ambient. The goal of the proposed work is to adapt a...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF04-147
Budget: 03/10/04 - 12/10/04

We propose to develop a calorimeter for accurately measuring the performance of active thermal control materials that can be easily deployed on spacecraft and satellites. Our calorimeter will be based on thin film heat flux gauges, which measure heat flux by determining the temperature difference across a thermally insulating film. The tempera...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 04-1
Budget: 01/01/04 - 12/31/04

We propose the development of a CTE-matched, liquid-cooled, high thermal conductivity heat sink for use in spacecraft thermal management applications. The material of construction of this heat sink has four properties that are critical: high normal and specific thermal conductivities, low CTE, high temperature resistivity, and moldability. Its t...
