Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD06-EP2
Budget: 06/08/09 - 06/08/11

The project includes the development of innovative motor and gearing technology to create improved electro-mechanical actuators (EMA) for NAVSEA and other applications. UQM will develop four different versions of the EMA motor to isolate the performance enhancements related to each of the innovative concepts proposed for development within this ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD06-EP2
Budget: 07/09/07 - 07/09/08

The proposed program meets the objective of improved torque density, power density, and efficiency through a topology that combines permanent magnet and reluctance components. The proposed technology improves upon commercial versions of this topology (most notably, the Toyota Hybrid Synergy motor) through a rotor structure that delivers higher ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF02-278
Budget: 05/01/07 - 04/30/09

The growing need for practical electric vehicles is driven by the demand for reduced emissions, energy efficiency, and increased freedom from fossil fuels. The primary factors limiting EVs today include limited range, limited performance, recharge time, and EMI issues. The vehicle built by UQM with Phase II funding will eliminate many of these p...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-283
Budget: 06/22/06 - 06/21/08

The implementation of hub motors in materials handling equipment such as bombloaders allows great benefits in terms of design flexibility and increased mobility. By moving the prime mover off of the main chassis of the vehicle large amounts of space is gained for robotic equipment for materials handling, cargo, munitions, or other special requi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-283
Budget: 06/17/05 - 03/17/06

For the past 20 years, UQM Technologies has developed wheel motors, integrated motor/controllers, direct drive, and geared drivetrains for advanced vehicles. For example, the company is currently producing direct drive wheel motors for wheelchairs (over 45,000 manufactured to date). This experience, combined with a new three-dimensional motor ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2005
Budget: 01/01/05 - 12/31/05

76062S The development of cost effective distributed and renewable energy technologies can reduce the nation¿s dependence on fossil fuels. However, alternative power sources such wind turbines, fuel cells, and microturbines will require improvements in existing power inverter technologies, in order to make these systems feasible for widesprea...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N04-216
Budget: 10/22/04 - 04/25/05

Military USV platforms require an increasing amount of electric power to support electronic systems developed for command and control and other loads. Combined with the fact that existing generator sets that provide the 40 kW of required power are too large and heavy for these boats, alternative solutions need to be found. UQM has developed sm...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N02-115
Budget: 08/17/04 - 08/17/06

There has been a recent increase in efforts to develop small/medium robots for military use. These robots, or UGVs (Unmanned Ground Vehicles), are sophisticated pieces of equipment that are beginning to represent many of the technological advancements found in future/prototype vehicles. One such technology that offers many benefits is the HEV (H...
