Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD03-008
Budget: 08/07/03 - 04/07/04

An enhanced electrically controlled extinguishable solid propellant (ECESP) developed under this SBIR program will be tested in a core burning motor configuration, thus making possible higher thrust levels than achievable in previously tested end burning motor designs. Specifically the enhancement entails the use of additives that confer incre...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF01-186
Budget: 05/01/02 - 08/02/04

This research is directed towards the development of a high energy electrically controlled solid propellant for maneuvering thrusters in micro satellites. Combustion of this propellant will depend on the continuous but low level input of electrical energy. Extinguishment will take place rapidly upon removal of this electrical energy. The prop...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF00-219
Budget: 08/21/01 - 11/21/03

Under this Phase II program, work will continue on the development of the low cost, high perormance rocket motor technology that is currently being researched on a PHASE I SBIR effort. Work completed to date on the Phase I program has demonstrated (1) the feasibility of preparing beads consisting of aluminum powder encapsulated in polyvinylalco...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF01-186
Budget: 07/25/01 - 07/25/02

This study will identify and verify a higher performance and density electrically controlled solid propellant. The propellant under investigation utilizes the energetic oxidizer Hydroxylamine nitrate with other nitrate co-oxidizers that prevent oxidizer crystallization down to 20 degrees centigrade and lower. The oxidizers are combined with the...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF99-214
Budget: 06/30/00 - 09/30/02

Under this Phase II SBIR program, work will continue on the development of the electrically controlled propellant that is currently being researched on a Phase I SBIR effort. Work completed currently to date on the Phase I program has demonstrated (1) the feasability of electrical initiating combustion of a very safe solid solution propellant, (...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF00-219
Budget: 03/22/00 - 02/11/01

The proposed approach will demonstrate a lower cost and safer method of manufacturing high performance solid rocket motors with a standard Isp of >245 lbfsec/lbm. This approach permits the motor case to be wound directly onto a porous mandrel propellant precursor composed of polymer beads. Methods for preparing these beads with the desired bul...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF99-212
Budget: 05/01/99 - 02/01/00

This program will develop aluminum filled crosslinked organic polymers into which a liquid oxidizer such as a hydroxylammonium nitrate eutectic can be swollen. These beads can then be used as an injectable solution solid propellant, having many of the advantages of solids and liquids with few of the disadvantages. Higher motor mass fractions can...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF99-214
Budget: 04/28/99 - 02/01/00

The proposed nine month Phase I program will further develop, at a lab bench scale, a demonstrated solid rocket motor propellant whose combustion and propulsion properties are controlled by the application of electrical voltage. Multiple ignition and extinguishment tests have been demonstrated on a single test specimen by the application and rem...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF95-095
Budget: 01/09/97 - 12/31/99

This program will test and evaluate two new "clean" propellants for potential commercial use. One propellant will be a solid solution propellant utilizing the newly synthesized energetic polymer of ethanolaminobutyne nitrate (EABN). The other propellant will be a monopropellant utilizing 1, 4-dihydrazino-2butyne dinitrate (DHBON). Both new ma...
