Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF141-088
Budget: 09/22/15 - 12/22/17

ABSTRACT:Future military and commercial spacelift systems will utilize reusable systems, consisting of liquid oxygen/hydrocarbon staged combustion engines, in order to increase the military utility by both enhancing current missions, enabling new missions and reducing cost. One innovative approach to reduce both non-recurring and recurring costs...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF141-088
Budget: 06/10/14 - 03/05/15

ABSTRACT: To meet the goals of future generation of ELVs, significant improvements must be made in cost. Current expendable launch vehicles are designed using an optimum performance methodology. Recent studies and technology demonstrations suggest that designing to minimum cost may have life cycle cost advantages over a performance optimized ELV...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF112-178
Budget: 03/06/13 - 06/08/15

ABSTRACT: To meet the goals for future generation Air Force LOX/Hydrocarbon booster engines, improvements must be made in performance, operability, reusability, reliability, and cost. To date, operational LOX/hydrocarbon engines have used the fuel as the thrust chamber assembly (TCA) regenerative coolant, and have used fuel film cooling (FFC) as...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Southern California

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF08-T022
Budget: 09/01/08 - 05/01/09

Polynitrogen and high-nitrogen compounds hold great potential for High Energy Density Materials (HEDM). Particular advantages of these compounds are their high energy content, environmentally more benign combustion products, low plume signatures, low smoke, low gun barrel corrosion, and potential for oxidizer and fuel compatible gas generators. ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD08-PR1
Budget: 06/24/08 - 12/24/08

Our vision for the next generation missile propulsion is a flexible and non-toxic system using HAN and a storable fuel candidate, offering variable thrust with a high degree of mission tailoring. Additionally, such system will be capable of rapid transients to enable pulsed propulsion for tactical missions. To meet the rapid start and shutdown t...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Southern California

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-T007
Budget: 06/28/07 - 06/28/09

During Phase II of the proposed program, Science and Technology Applications, LLC (STA), proposes to find a green replacement for ammonium perchlorate (AP). During Phase I of this program, the novel tetranitroborate, B(NO2)4-, anion, was identified as a potential high-oxygen carrier. Its combination with the NH4+ cation would result in the forma...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Southern California

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-T007
Budget: 08/01/06 - 05/01/07

Ammonium perchlorate (AP) is the most commonly used oxidizing ingredient in solid propellant formulations. It carries a sufficient excess of oxygen to allow for the combustion of the required binder and added metal, such as aluminum. The major drawback of AP is its chlorine content which results in the formation of large amounts of HCl as a comb...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Georgia Institute of Technology

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-T005
Budget: 07/31/06 - 05/01/07

Combustion instability in liquid rocket engines (LREs) has manifested in nearly all LRE development programs. While the driving mechanisms of combustion instability are vast and coupled, in all instances, the net result is significant cost and schedule over-runs. In today s business environment, such over-runs are rarely tolerated and generally ...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Southern California

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF04-T003
Budget: 09/30/05 - 09/30/05

During Phase II of the proposed program, Science and Technology Applications, LLC, proposes to prepare novel energetic materials identified during Phase I as potential targets. Therefore, the objectives of the proposed work in Phase II are (i) the development of synthetic methods for the preparation of N3+ salts, (ii) the bulk synthesis of N5- s...
