20 Awards Won

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

Agency: Army
Topic: A16A-T001
Budget: 08/09/16 - 04/09/17

The ability to accurately design and predict the performance of combustion-based machinery like gas turbine engines is important in improving their performance, increasing their fuel economy, lowering operating costs, and decreasing pollutant emissions. Almost all of the flows are turbulent in industrial combustion applications, therefore under...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: H4.02
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/09/16

With plans to transition to the Rapid Cycle Amine system for CO2 control in the Portable Life Support System used for extra vehicular activities (EVA), NASA has a need to improve the method for controlling trace contaminants, specifically ammonia (NH3) and formaldehyde (CH2O), which have the potential to exceed space craft maximum allowable conc...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 14c
Budget: 02/25/16 - 11/21/16

Coal-fired power plants generate 45% of the electricity in the United States and they are also a major source of CO2 emissions. Low- cost processes for CO2 capture are being developed but these leave about 1% CO2 in the effluent. Unfortunately, it is difficult to remove CO2 from these low concentration streams. Chemical absorption is the option ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF131-171
Budget: 10/01/14 - 12/29/16

ABSTRACT: The development of weapons that can travel at hypersonic speeds is becoming a high priority to the US Air Force. A key technology needed for the continued development of these propulsion systems is the ability to cool the combustor by flowing fuel through channels machined in the walls. Currently, the cooling capacity of kerosene-bas...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF131-171
Budget: 07/29/13 - 03/03/14

ABSTRACT: The development of weapons that can travel at hypersonic speeds is becoming a high priority to the US Air Force. Continued development of these vehicles relies on the ability to cool the combustor using the fuel. The cooling capacity of kerosene-based fuels is low even with endothermic cracking reactions. Increasing the fuel cooling...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF112-185
Budget: 01/02/13 - 04/01/15

ABSTRACT: The surfaces of rocket engines are exposed to high pressure combustion products at temperatures up to 6000°F. Regenerative cooling can cause coke to form on the heat exchanger surfaces and the intention to reuse engines creates the potential for excessive coke accumulation, reduced cooling efficiency, and eventual engine failure. The...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-2-X4.02
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

The development of new, robust, lightweight systems for CO2 removal during EVA is a crucial need for NASA. Current activity is focused on extending mission times without increasing the size and weight of the portable life support system (PLSS). Although CO2 sorbents that can be regenerated during EVA are being studied, these system add "on bac...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF112-185
Budget: 11/21/11 - 08/19/12

ABSTRACT: The surfaces of rocket engine thrust chambers, throats and nozzles are exposed to combustion products at temperatures ranging from 4000 to 6000°F and therefore engines must utilize a cooling mechanism to prevent metal failure. Unfortunately, regenerative cooling leaves coke deposits in the fuel channels which can lead to wall failure....

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-1-X4.02
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

The development of new, robust, lightweight systems for CO2 removal during EVA is a crucial need for NASA. With current and anticipated space activities, mission times will need to be extended without increasing the size and weight of the portable life support system (PLSS). While much of the recent work on the development of new CO2 control s...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-1-A2.02
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

Tremendous advances have been made in the development of large and accurate detailed reaction chemistry models for hydrocarbon fuels. Comparable progress has also been achieved in CFD as an engineering design tool. Highly accurate hydrocarbon chemistry is now desired for simulating gas turbine combustors and automobile engines to better predic...
