Award List:

Propellant Flow Actuated Piezoelectric Rocket Engine Igniter

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Mark Wollen, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $99,054.00
Abstract:
Spark ignition of a bi-propellant rocket engine is a classic, proven, and generally reliable process. However, timing can be critical, and the control logic, additional electronic components and wiring adds complexity, cost and weight. These factors can be especially undesirable for small attitude… More

Propellant Flow Actuated Piezoelectric Rocket Engine Igniter

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Mark A. Wollen, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $599,974.00
Abstract:
Under a Phase 1 effort, IES successfully developed and demonstrated a spark ignition concept where propellant flow drives a very simple fluid mechanical oscillator to excite a piezoelectric crystal. The Phase 1 effort exceeded expectations, with the device demonstrating reliable ignition of both… More

Flexible Screen Propellant Management Device for Near Term In-Space Demonstration

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Mark A. Wollen, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $99,875.00
Abstract:
While evaluating lunar ascent and descent stage propellant acquisition options in 2008 and 2009 for NASA GRC, IES conceived a novel, flexible screen propellant management device (PMD). The concept provides a highly simplified and easy to build PMD as an alternative to a total communication device… More
