Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N103-194
Budget: 05/17/11 - 11/17/11

A technology enabling program is proposed that will result in the development of a high efficiency renewable energy system. This novel package will be able to continuously produce 5 kW of electric power when coupled to a Stirling Engine based Power Conversion Unit. Whenever possible the heat needed to drive the Stirling Engine will come from a s...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N103-200
Budget: 11/08/10 - 05/08/11

The development of a predictive thermal capacity monitoring system for fuel-based cooling systems on aircraft is proposed. This new information system will operate to provide the pilot with an updated perspective on the operational status and capability of the fuel-based thermal management system. Using real time physical data, projected flight ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA08-049
Budget: 03/27/09 - 09/27/09

System and component level advancements will be investigated for the Laser Refrigeration System. Opportunities available for significant performance improvement will be evaluated including, for example, those potentially resulting from the use of a turbodynamic refrigerant compressor, a high speed scroll compressor, a pressure recover expand...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA08-048
Budget: 03/27/09 - 09/27/09

A feasibility program is proposed that will investigate a novel steam ejector Pressure Recovery System (PRS) with enhanced performance for both startup and for operation at lower altitudes. These enhancements will be developed using fluidic methods to create a virtual second stage ejector. The advantages of this approach are significant in tha...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD07-ES1
Budget: 09/04/08 - 09/04/10

An SBIR Phase II program is proposed to develop a Steam Powered Electricity And Refrigeration (SPEAR) system to provide a demonstration of its capabilities for powering and cooling military electronic equipment shelters. The SPEAR system will utilize a scroll steam expander in a Mesoscale Steam Engine Generator (MSEG) to produce electric power....

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD07-ES1
Budget: 05/09/07 - 05/09/08

A program is proposed to demonstrate the feasibility of a Steam Powered Electricity And Refrigeration (SPEAR) system for powering and cooling military electronic equipment shelters. The SPEAR system will utilize a scroll steam expander in a Mesoscale Steam Engine Generator (MSEG) to produce electric power. Yankee Scientific developed the MSEG ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB021-007
Budget: 04/08/03 - 07/10/05

The objective of this project is to identify and demonstrate tribology materials and designs for use in advanced meso-scale steam engine expanders operating without lubricating oil. All candidate positive displacement expanders for steam engines require tribology technology that can provide reasonable friction and wear while maintaining contact ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A02-201
Budget: 12/16/02 - 06/15/03

A program is proposed to demonstrate the feasibility of small-scale steam-jet chiller technology for cooling refrigerators in military field kitchens. Yankee Scientific's Liquid Injected Cogeneration (LIC) cycle currently provides electric power and distributed heating capability for the cooking systems in the US Army's SLIC kitchen. The norma...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Purdue University

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: ST021-004
Budget: 07/17/02 - 07/09/03

The recent emergence of practical scroll fluid machine technology presents a new opportunity in liquid-fuel rocket engine propulsion pump and system design. In a number of terrestrial small-scale fluid power conversion applications, the scroll machine has become commercially important and has been shown to have key advantages over traditional ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB021-007
Budget: 03/01/02 - 11/01/02

A program of materials identification and testing is proposed to support the development of advanced water-lubricated steam engine systems. Yankee Scientific is the leading US developer of advanced small-scale water/steam power technology. Yankee Scientific's work in this area is supported by the DOD for self-powered portable field kitchens an...
