Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A04-082
Budget: 02/26/09 - 02/26/11

Virtual Aerosurface Technologies, Inc. in collaboration with Georgia Tech proposes a Phase II SBIR program for the adaptation of combustion powered actuation (COMPACT) actuators to the task of fuselage drag reduction on rotorcraft. COMPACT uses a small-scale combustion process to produce pulsed jets with a wide range of strengths and has demons...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Georgia Institute of Technology

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA07-T002
Budget: 01/21/09 - 01/21/11

Virtual AeroSurface Technologies, Inc. in collaboration with Georgia Tech and Raytheon Company proposes a Phase II STTR program for the development and testing of meso- and micro-scale Pulse Tube Refrigerator cryocooler systems. The Phase I program performed numerical modeling and CFD simulations of the small-scale effects (e.g., increased surf...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA06-023
Budget: 05/30/08 - 05/16/10

Virtual AeroSurface Technologies, in collaboration with Raytheon Company and Georgia Tech, proposes a Phase II SBIR program for the development and prototyping of a small-scale compressor with design specifications intended for use with prospective small-scale cryocooler systems. This compressor will based upon a moving-magnet concept down-sele...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Georgia Institute of Technology

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA07-T002
Budget: 09/12/07 - 03/11/08

Virtual AeroSurface Technologies, Inc. and the Georgia Institute of Technology propose an STTR program for the investigation and modeling of meso scale Pulse Tube cryocooler systems (with initial design targets of 0.5 mW exergetic cold end thermal loads and cryocooler volumes of approximately 10 ml), with the possible extension of models further...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA06-023
Budget: 02/28/07 - 08/28/07

Virtual AeroSurface Technologies, Inc., in collaboration with researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology and Raytheon Company, proposes an SBIR program for the development of a MEMS fabricated microcompressor suitable for use with microcryocooler systems. The proposed microcompressor will be designed to provide 10 W of compressor power ...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Georgia Institute of Technology

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF03T014
Budget: 08/01/05 - 08/01/07

Combustion powered actuation (COMPACT) is a flow control technology developed at Georgia Tech which utilizes a miniature combustion chamber (cubic centimeter scale) to produce high-speed pulsed jets suitable for aerodynamic flow control (separation control, drag reduction, shock control, etc.) at transonic or supersonic speeds. The system is li...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A04-082
Budget: 12/10/04 - 06/10/05

Virtual Aerosurface Technologies, Inc. proposes an SBIR program for the adaptation of combustion powered actuation (COMPACT) flow control devices to the task of fuselage drag reduction on rotorcraft. COMPACT uses a small-scale combustion process to produce high velocity pulsed jets for flow control applications and has previously demonstrated s...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Georgia Institute of Technology

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF03T014
Budget: 12/15/03 - 08/15/04

Combustion powered actuation (COMPACT) technology was developed at Georgia Tech for high-speed flow control applications. COMPACT produces a pulsed jet by the ignition of a mixture of fuel and oxidizer in a miniature (cm3-scale) combustion chamber. The combustion creates a rapid pressure rise in the chamber and the subsequent ejection of a hig...
