10 Awards Won

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Texas at Arlington

Agency: Navy
Topic: N10A-T037
Budget: 06/28/10 - 04/30/11

The Team of M-DOT Aerospace and University of Texas, Arlington propose to analyze, construct and test a 40 mm foil thrust bearing featuring a unique bump foil concept and top-foil profile designed by Dr. Daejong Kim. The design is simple, affording low production cost in high quantity. The design can be adapted for use on small gas turbines, sma...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD08-UM2
Budget: 04/21/10 - 06/11/12

M-DOT proposes to team with engine developers and produce a turbocharger for an HFE that will support a range of power levels from 30 to 60 HP. The launch design application will be a heavy fuel conversion of the UAV Engines Ltd. Model 741 rotary. The higher end of the flow range will support power systems developed for Shadow C.

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB072-045
Budget: 04/08/09 - 06/23/10

M-DOT Aerospace proposes to team with Mezzo Technologies of Baton Rouge LA and Dr. Hui Wang of the USC, LA and conduct a series of tests and analyses that address all currently perceived critical-path technologies of a 36 kW high-altitude power system design generated in Phase I for the Rapid Eye program. A representative section of the engine ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD08-UM2
Budget: 06/10/08 - 12/10/08

Proposed is the preliminary design of an extremely small turbocharger sized for an 8 to 12 hp class engine. The entire unit will weigh roughly 240 grams. Design will incorporate pre-existing compressor and turbine designs for which hardware currently exists for Phase II test. Phase I will include design, fab and test of a 450,000 rpm, high dur...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB072-045
Budget: 09/26/07 - 04/30/08

Proposed is a power system suitable for operation to altitudes of 100K feet or more and capable of operating for 12-20 hours at a time. The system will be storable for years in a sealed container. It will have thermal efficiency sufficient for meeting the 20-hour endurance requirement while still being storable within the required size envelop...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD07-ES1
Budget: 04/13/07 - 04/13/08

Proposed is a combined electric power and cooling system that shares a common proprietary working fluid. Employing this fluid enables practical application of both systems in a combined unit. The entire self-contained system will weigh roughly 164 lbs and thus will be 4-person carryable and easily placed in a helicopter or ground vehicle. The...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF071-172
Budget: 04/03/07 - 01/03/08

A technical approach to gas path seal design is described that provides a unique combination of benefits. It has broad application to gas seals including those applied to bearing sumps and gas paths. It is a direct replacement for conventional carbon face, labyrinth, brush, and similar gas seals. It prevents all leakage flow between rotating ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB052-026
Budget: 10/25/05 - 06/21/06

M-DOT proposes to study application of a proprietary rotary expander as a quasi-Constant-Volume Combustor (CVC) in a gas turbine. Whereas CVC has been explored as a topping element (to increase max cycle pressure) within the Brayton cycle, it has generally involved reciprocating piston or wave rotor embodiments. The rotary expander should prov...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF02-183
Budget: 05/03/03 - 05/03/05

Based on the positive results obtained from the cycle analysis and preliminary design conducted during Phase I, M-DOT Aerospace proposes to design, analyze, fabricate and test a low-cost high-bypass turbofan engine based on a scaled TPR 80 Gas Generator module. This engine is intended to produce 79 lbf of thrust at a flight Mach number of 0.7 an...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF02-183
Budget: 05/06/02 - 02/06/03

We propose to design and develop a turbine-driven fan module that will attach to the exhaust duct of an expendable turbojet converting it into an aft-fan turbofan. Depending upon selected bypass ratio, thrust can be increased as much as 70% and TSFC can be reduced more than 50%. The complete fan unit would weigh roughly 4-5 lbs and provide sig...
