Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF131-009
Budget: 09/30/13 - 06/30/14

ABSTRACT: We propose to develop for the Air Force a high-efficiency Waste Heat Removal System (WHRS) that removes large amounts of waste heat from aircraft with negligible impacts on signature and aerodynamic performance. Our WHRS absorbs heat from aircraft thermal loads, including a Thermal Energy Storage (TES) system that absorbs and stores h...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N123-157
Budget: 03/14/13 - 09/14/13

The Navy needs a metal cutting system for submarine and aircraft carrier hull disposal. We propose to develop a Hull Cutting Mill (HCM) to meet Navy needs. Our HCM uses a compact high-speed high-power hydraulic milling head to perform slot-milling and achieve a fast lineal speed cutting high-tensile steel with a man-handle-able machine. Our HCM ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N101-063
Budget: 12/13/11 - 12/13/12

The Navy needs robust rotary unions for advanced high-speed liquid-cooled generators. Under an SBIR project for the Navy, we are developing a hydrostatic bearing/seal rotary union (HBSRU) to meet Navy needs. Hydrostatic bearings can operate at large radii with fast rotational speeds, so our HBSRU has room for large flow capabilities. The hydrost...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-1-X8.05
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

NASA needs advanced power-conversion technologies to improve the efficiency and reliability of power conversion for space exploration missions. We propose to develop a Stirling generator to meet NASA needs. Our Stirling generator adapts technology we have developed for high-reliability long-life (> 10 years) space-based Stirling-cycle cryocool...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF093-186
Budget: 12/15/10 - 09/15/11

The Air Force needs highly reliable, reusable, low-cost engine valves for reusable liquid rocket booster engines. We propose to develop a Frictionless Ball Valve (FBV) to meet Air Force needs. Our FBV uses friction-free hydrostatic bearings to maintain tight clearance seals and eliminate wear, which makes our FBV highly reliable and reusable. ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N101-063
Budget: 07/12/10 - 01/12/11

The Navy needs robust high-speed rotary unions for advanced liquid-cooled and high-temperature-superconducting (HTS) generators. We propose to develop hydrostatic bearing/seal rotary unions (HBSRUs) to meet Navy needs. Hydrostatic bearings can operate at large radii with fast rotational speeds, so our HBSRUs have room for large flow capabilities...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N101-093
Budget: 05/10/10 - 07/09/11

The Navy needs technology to convert the energy content of high-speed impinging jets on aircraft carrier flight decks into useful power. We propose to develop an Active Heat Spreader (AHS) to meet Navy needs. DARPA is developing heat spreaders to remove the concentrated energy from impinging jets on Navy flight decks. Our AHS removes the concent...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 08-2
Budget: 01/01/08 - 12/31/08

NASA has many needs for maintenance and repair technologies for long-duration human space missions. We propose to continue developing a compact, portable, vacuum-compatible, multi-axis Manipulator/Machining Center (M/MC) to satisfy many of NASA's needs. Our M/MC will provide complex manipulation during: layer-additive manufacturing; collection...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF071-341
Budget: 07/24/07 - 04/24/08

The Air Force needs an automated system for honing various shapes of taper in smooth-bore tubes. We propose to develop an automatic bore hone (ABH) to meet Air Force needs. Our ABH will automatically produce required diameter profiles to tight tolerances. Bore-gage transducers measure the bore diameter. A hydraulic telescoping drive shaft de...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF063C-011
Budget: 02/12/07 - 02/12/08

The Air Force needs a Robotic Drilling System (RDS) for drilling and countersinking holes in JSF inlet ducts. We propose a team to develop all elements of a complete RDS: Robot/Robotic Application; Drill End-Effector (DEE); Metrology System; Cutting Tools; and an Automatic Tool Changer. This proposal focuses on the DEE. We propose to develop ...
