Abstract:

Baker Engineering Inc. (BEI) proposes the use of a new heavy fuel Micro Injection System, paired with the R351 Rotary Engine, to exceed the specifications of this SBIR solicitation. BEI is uniquely qualified for this program as the company is currently developing a heavy fuel Micro Injection System for small engine applications, performs Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) analysis in-house, and has rotary engine experience including a current program to convert a gasoline powered rotary engine to heavy fuel operation. The system proposed for this effort is a new high pressure heavy fuel Micro Fuel Injection System which includes a Micro Injector (TRL 7), Micro Pump (TRL 5) and a small electronic controller that have already demonstrated strong potential through bench testing (performance and durability) and on-engine testing. To support Micro Injection System development, BEI has developed and utilizes CFD simulation platforms for both Micro Fuel Injector Design Evaluation and Rotary Engine Evaluation. BEI proposes utilization of the new R351 Rotary Engine (350cc), under development by L-3 Combat Propulsion Systems, for this SBIR program.
