Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF151-070
Budget: 08/10/15 - 05/18/16

ABSTRACT:Unmanned Air Vehicle (UAV) developers have limited marketplace options for motor speed controllers. ?The largest commercial controllers are generally limited to below 12 kW and battery voltages of less than 50 V, Although these are well suited to 800 Class helicopters and Giant scale fixed-wing aircraft, they are not powerful enough for...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD12-EP4
Budget: 09/19/14 - 09/19/16

The US Army and Marines rely significantly on fossil-fuel based tactical power generation to provide electrical energy to deployed troops in small camps and forward operation bases. These generators are sized to support the expected maximum power but are

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF141-080
Budget: 05/27/14 - 02/23/15

ABSTRACT: Modern military aircraft are encountering major thermal obstacles as a result of significant increases in on-board heat generation combined with a reduced ability to transfer heat to the ambient environment. Adaptive power and thermal management systems (APTMS) are being studied in great detail in order to mitigate these thermal restr...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD12-EP5
Budget: 05/06/14 - 08/19/16

The movement to more-electric architectures in airborne systems has drastically altered the dynamics of power flow in the EPS with the addition of numerous high-power electric loads and has increased the complexity of designing the electrical power system (EPS). Such high-power dynamic loads may cause undesirable system performance from both a d...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD12-EP4
Budget: 07/24/13 - 01/23/14

The US Army and Marines rely significantly on fossil-fuel based tactical power generation to provide electrical energy to deployed troops in small camps and forward operation bases. These generators are sized to support the expected maximum power but are often operated far below rated power due to the dynamic nature of electrical loads. On ave...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF131-172
Budget: 07/08/13 - 04/08/14

ABSTRACT: The move towards more-electric aircraft continues to increase the complexity of electrical power systems (EPS) on modern airborne platforms. In addition to ever expanding peak and regenerative power demands, several of the loads can introduce very high rates of current change (dI/dt) within the EPS, all of which implies significant sp...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Purdue University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N06-T007
Budget: 05/03/13 - 05/15/14

Failures in aircraft electrical power systems can compromise the readiness, safety, and capabilities of the war-fighter. Furthermore, if the root cause for the failure cannot be quickly identified, this can lead to increased maintenance costs and potential downtime for the aircraft. In this effort, enhanced diagnostic and prognostic algorithms w...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD12-EP5
Budget: 02/19/13 - 11/18/13

The movement to more-electric architectures during the past decade in military and commercial airborne systems continues to increase the complexity of designing and specifying the electrical power system. The addition of numerous high-power electric loads has drastically altered the dynamics of power flow on the electrical bus. Many of these l...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N103-207
Budget: 12/28/12 - 01/06/15

State-of-the-art electrical starter/generator (ES/G) systems have become increasingly complex in design and integration due to significant power-demand increase in more electric aircraft initiatives such as the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF). They must provide high performance and high efficiency with limited active cooling availability. In order to...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N103-200
Budget: 10/22/12 - 11/01/14

PCKA has developed a dynamic, real-time thermal capacity algorithm and gauge for predicting current and anticipated fuel heat sink capability on a fifth-generation tactical aircraft. Relevant internal and external sources and sinks are tracked with prognostics and adaptive intelligence designed to anticipate future thermal constraints. Net heat ...
