Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A06-005
Budget: 09/25/07 - 09/25/09

Advanced turboshaft engines will be required to support future Army UAVs and Objective Force Systems such as the A160, UCAR, Future Combat System, and Future Utility Rotorcraft. These systems will spend significant time at cruise and as a result will require significantly improved part power engine performance. The intent of this program is to t...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A06-177
Budget: 08/31/07 - 08/31/09

There is a need for more compact and efficient field equipment that can burn alternative fuels, and supply heat and electric power to field kitchens and other organizational equipment in future combat support operations. Current equipment operates on JP8 and employs separate heat and electric power generation devices. The intent of this program ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A06-177
Budget: 11/09/06 - 11/08/07

There is a need for more compact and efficient field equipment that can burn alternative fuels, and supply heat and electric power to field kitchens and other organizational equipment in future combat support operations. Current equipment operates on JP8 and employs separate heat and electric power generation devices. The intent of this program ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A06-005
Budget: 11/09/06 - 10/31/07

Advanced turboshaft engines will be required to support future Army Uninhabited Air Vehicles (UAVs) and Objective Force Systems such as the A160, UCAR, Future Combat System, and Future Utility Rotorcraft. These systems will spend significant time at cruise and as a result will require significantly improved part power engine performance. The in...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A02-073
Budget: 11/07/03 - 11/07/05

Advanced military UAV vehicles can benefit from compact, lightweight, quiet turbine engines that operate on heavy fuels. A critical requirement in utilizing these engines is an efficient, lightweight, high reduction ratio drive system. The proposed program will provide the detailed design of two attractive concepts that will be fabricated and ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A02-073
Budget: 12/13/02 - 11/10/03

The proposed program will evaluate and compare different drive concepts, and will deliver a preliminary design of the most attractive concept for achieving the high speed reduction ratio required by small UAV turbine engines appropriate for UAV propeller powered,or rotor driven aircraft. Several conventional inline and offset gearbox concepts w...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: A00-001
Budget: 09/05/02 - 08/01/04

Advanced military unmanned aero and ground vehicles can benefit from small, lightweight, turbo shaft engines that operate on heavy fuel. Starting with engines that were first developed for use in remote controlled model aircraft and upgrading their technology can produce very capable and affordable engines. This program will upgrade a 10 HP tu...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A00-011
Budget: 04/27/01 - 01/27/02

A program is proposed to evaluate the feasibility of using low-cost microturbines to meet the U.S. Army future requirements for small, lightweight engines (less than 10 kW power) that operate on heavy fuel and achieve very high power per cubic foot of engine volume. The program will accomplish this evaluation in two tasks; the basic program usi...
