Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A11-068
Budget: 07/31/13 - 07/15/15

This SBIR Phase 2 project will develop and demonstrate a 300-500W heavy fuel engine to provide modular power for an Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV). The engine will be a Modified Commercial Off The Shelf (M-COTS) gasoline engine that will operate on DF2, JP8, other heavy fuels as well as gasoline in an emergency. The project will test, validate an...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A11-068
Budget: 07/11/11 - 01/11/12

The project aims to engage in design, modeling and simulation of a heavy fuel engine that meets the specific needs of the Army (300 500 Watts of rated mechanical power). Phase 1 tasks include definition of an engine that can meet the power needs, parametric design of the engine, engine modeling, variational performance analysis & optimization,...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB082-011
Budget: 09/20/10 - 09/19/12

DARPA SBIR solicitation SB082-011 seeks the design and development of high power density electric motors for hybrid electric air platforms, indicating a need for a prototype motor rated at 7 hp, weight less than 1.4 lbs, efficiency greater than 95% and operating at speeds less than 10,000 revolutions per minute (RPM), to be used for a ducted fan...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A07-075
Budget: 06/12/09 - 06/11/11

The objective of the proposed Phase 2 effort is to develop an Optimum Very Small Heavy Fuel Engine and technologies needed by it, and deliver an integrated, functional prototype engine to the government. For the Phase 2, the project tasks include : Sub-Sy

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB082-011
Budget: 03/02/09 - 11/15/09

The project aims to develop a strategy for a dramatically lighter and more efficient electric motor, with initial emphasis on a 7 hp class, 12 diameter fan for VTOL UAVs. For this, D-STAR is proposing a new motor architecture that combines and enhances the best features of contemporary motor architectures. For the Phase 1, the project tasks inc...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB082-010
Budget: 12/16/08 - 08/20/09

The project aims to develop a strategy for a small, modular heavy fuel engine in the 10 hp class, using scaled versions of a heavy fuel atomization system and combustion management systems previously developed by D-STAR, and by optimizing the engine design parameters to yield a successful engine that offers light weight, high efficiency and quie...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A07-075
Budget: 11/14/07 - 12/29/08

The project aims to develop a strategy for an Optimum Miniature Heavy Fuel Engine, using scaled versions of a heavy fuel atomization system and combustion management systems previously developed by D-STAR, and by optimizing the engine design parameters to yield a successful OM-HFE. For the Phase 1, the project tasks include : identification of ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A06-218
Budget: 09/26/07 - 09/26/09

The project aims to develop a 1.5 kW ¨C 2.5 kW Heavy Fuel hybrid power system / portable generator set that occupies 0.6 cu. ft. of volume and weighs about 20 lbs. The proposed D-STAR system, DGS4-2k, features a Modified Commercial Off-The-Shelf (M-COTS) high-speed engine, a Permanent Magnet starter generator, electronic power conversion to use ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-241
Budget: 05/25/07 - 09/30/09

The project aims to further develop the AeroLensCraft for high-altitude air platform, and to engage in hardware validation of key innovations and enabling technologies : the unique shape, with TVM, and the unique energy harvesting, storage and recovery system combined with the buoyancy system.

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A06-218
Budget: 11/20/06 - 10/27/07

The project aims to engage in detailed definition and preliminary design of the 1.5 to 2.5 kW heavy-fuel diesel-hybrid power system and its subsystems, performance analysis for the subsystems and the system, exploration of its feasibility including costs and risks, comparative performance analysis and assessment of other competing power and ene...
