41 Awards Won

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A08-015
Budget: 10/22/08 - 04/21/09

We propose a method that specifically addresses the requirement for helicopter engine torque sensor validation by integrating the engine component level model, model reduction techniques, and real-time parameter estimation algorithms. The method starts with a component level turboshaft model. Component degradations are considered. Model reductio...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-297
Budget: 03/17/08 - 03/17/10

The Air Force seeks a large production wind tunnel seeding system with full field steering capability. Additionally, the system must offer control of the particle size and density along with minimal maintenance and flow disturbance characteristics. These features will increase tunnel productivity, and compliment nonintrusive flow visualization...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD07-ES9
Budget: 05/15/07 - 05/15/08

The development of an Inter-Turbine Burner (ITB) for improving the part power performance of small gas turbine engines is proposed. An Inter-Turbine Burner is a second combustor placed between the gas generator exit and the power turbine to reheat the engine gas stream before it enters the power turbine. The Inter-Turbine burner is used to inc...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 04-2
Budget: 01/01/04 - 12/31/04

The objective of the proposed Phase II effort is to transfer proven sensor technology from the laboratory breadboard to a functional flight-ready prototype for installation in an aircraft fuel tank. In the Phase I effort, a novel spectroscopic technique was shown to be an effective method for measuring oxygen concentration in harsh environments ...

Phase 1 SBIR

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

Laser induced thermal acoustics (LITA) is a nonintrusive, transient-grating optical technique that provides simultaneous high-accuracy measurements of velocity, sound-speed, and thermal diffusivity among other parameters. In a fluid of known composition, sound speed and thermal diffusivity are readily correlated to temperature and density. Thus ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A03-069
Budget: 12/10/03 - 06/09/04

he use of an inter-turbine burner for improving the part power performance of small turboshaft engines in proposed. An inter-turbine burner is a second combustor placed between the gas generator exit and the power turbine to "reheat" the engine gas stream before it enters the power turbine. The inter-turbine burner is used to increase engine po...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 03-1
Budget: 01/01/03 - 12/31/03

We propose to engineer a compact, robust, optically-based sensor for measuring local oxygen concentration in aircraft fuel tanks. This system will utilize absorption of rapidly scanned Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Diode Lasers (VCSELs) by molecular oxygen. This proposed system can measure 100 ppm to 100% oxygen in ambient temperatures from -...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB012-020
Budget: 10/24/02 - 10/24/03

The development of a pre-compressor mass injection system for extending the flight Mach number and altitude of conventional military afterburning turbo jet and turbofan engines is proposed. The injection of water and liquid oxidizer such as liquid oxygen can be used to enhance the performance of these engines so that they may power the reusable...

Phase 1 SBIR

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

This proposal describes an innovative, high-efficiency, compactcombustor for lean-premixed, low-emissions gas turbine systems andresponds directly to NASA's request for Innovative technologiesrelating to combustion processes, including fuel injectors, piloting,flameholding techniques for increased and performance and decreasedemissions under SBI...
