9 Awards Won

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF03-175
Budget: 06/25/03 - 03/25/04

Evaporative spray cooling systems are perhaps the only systems capable of the high power density thermal control anticipated for future spacecraft. However, evaporative spray cooling in the micro-gravity environment poses particular challenges for effective system design because of the complications imposed by the "secondary problem" of fluids ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD02-EP04
Budget: 03/18/03 - 09/18/03

Spray cooling is a very effective convective heat transfer method. Although it is known that spray cooling performance is highly fluid dependent, and decays rapidly with increasing surface area, the relationships still are not well understood. Perversely, the most precipitous decline in cooling capability seems to occur in the region of the mo...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2002
Budget: 01/01/02 - 12/31/02

70171 The continuing trend toward the development of smaller, lighter, and less costly propulsion systems for advanced Hybrid Electric Vehicles continues to advance beyond the capabilities of commercially available thermal management systems. Currently available motors that use water in forced convection cooling systems offer only one-fi...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N92-136
Budget: 01/31/96 - 01/31/98

A complete rack will be designed and tested. The rack will demonstrate important features such as effective sealing and easy servicing. A system study will be conducted to determine the most efficient way to apply the technology to realistic avionics packages, and to determine the level of performance improvement and mass reduction in com...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 96-2
Budget: 01/01/96 - 12/31/96

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF95-179
Budget: 03/29/95 - 10/29/95

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 95-1
Budget: 01/01/95 - 12/31/95

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Commerce
Topic: 1995
Budget: 01/01/95 - 12/31/95

This SBIR Phase I project will investigate an integration framework to enable the virtual prototyping of mechanical components, specifically for application to ISR's advanced spray cooling technology. The framework will accommodate an Automated Design, Analysis, and Manufacturing system currently under development at ISR by allowing the integra...
