Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF99-204
Budget: 09/11/00 - 12/11/03

The high aspect ratio coolant channel technology proposed here improves the operation of rocket engine combustion chambers by enhancing cooling performance and reducing pressure drop. The objective of this proposed effort is to obtain the heat transfer correlations required to reliably use high aspect ratio coolant channels in regeneratively-coo...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF00-225
Budget: 03/22/00 - 02/22/01

Due to their promise to reduce weight while at the same time accommodating higher combustion chamber heat fluxes and increasing component durability, transpiration cooled combustion chambers have been the focus of rocket propulsion research for decades. Research has shown that a major obstacle to producing a workable transpiration cooled chamber...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO99-006
Budget: 05/05/99 - 11/04/99

Missile defense systems rely heavily on plume signature recognition to help identify and neutralize hostile missiles. Unfortunately, plume signature modeling has proven to be extremely difficult, with modelers struggling to obtain good agreement between predictions and data. The modeled exhaust conditions display a significant lack of fidelity a...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF99-204
Budget: 04/30/99 - 01/31/00

In high heat flux applications, typical regeneratively-cooled combustion chambers have very high pressure drops which significantly increase the demands on turbomachinery. These high pressure drops are largely due to high coolant velocities in the regen circuits caused by the use of low-aspect ratio coolant channels (4:1). In addition, low aspec...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF97-088
Budget: 05/05/98 - 04/29/00

We propose starting a commercial Internet website that will provide access to a variety of computer codes for analyzing rocket engine propulsion and components. Users will be able to securely execute well-maintained rocket analysis computer codes over the Internet. All communication with the site will be protected by security protocols that me...
