Abstract:

Applied Colloids proposes the utilization of its proprietary nanotechnology in order to insure continued operation of powertrain transmissions utilized in rotorcraft. This will entail the use of a nanoadditive to the transmissions of interest. These nanoadditives will coat the interacting gears with a low coefficient material that will insure operation beyond the 30 minute period specified by military standard after loss of lubricating oil, possibly much longer. This technology will be tested for feasiblity in Phase I utilizing point and line contact tribology testing techniques. Successful completion of Phase I will lead to the testing of this proposed technology with more complex gear systems in Phase II and to final use and commercialization in Phase III.
