Award List:

COMPUTATIONAL OPTIMIZATION OF HYPERSONIC BODIES

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1986 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $49,589.00

RAREFIELD GAS FLOW EFFECTS ON HYPERSONIC VEHICLES

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1988 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Dr ajay p kothari
Award Amount: $47,823.00
Abstract:
Based upon a preliminary literature search, several possible areas for future research were identified. first, there appears to be no published identification of the rarefield flow regimes, and crucial rarefield flight regimes, for various vehicles in desired high altitude maneuvers. second, it… More

COMPUTATIONAL OPTIMIZATION OF HYPERSONIC BODIES

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1990 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $477,817.00

Analysis of Off-Design Considerations for Innovative Single-Stage-to-Orbit Configurations

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1993 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Thomas A. Mclaughlin
Award Amount: $82,664.00

Analysis of Off-Design Considerations for Innovative Single-Stage-to-Orbit Configurations

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1995 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Thomas A. Mclaughlin
Award Amount: $494,509.00
Abstract:
An existing hypersonic vehicle design code predicts EISP performance increases of 200-400 seconds over traditional single-stage-to-orbit configurations. If realized, such increase may have profound effects on the vehicle weight and maximum airbreathing Mach number. To date, these improved results… More

Combined-Cycle Engine Flow Path Analysis & Design Software Tool

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2002 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Christopher Tarpley, Division - Manager
Award Amount: $99,895.00
Abstract:
"The need for innovative combined cycle engines for Space Access and hypersonicvehicles leads the Air Force design engineers to the requirement for analysistools that provide higher levels of fidelity than are available today. Theengines for these vehicles, rather than being separate systems, are… More

Rapid Design, Analysis, and Test of Hypersonic Propulsion Integrated Configurations

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Christopher Tarpley, Aerospace Engineer
Award Amount: $99,456.00
Abstract:
The Air Force Research Laboratory Air Vehicles Directorate needs to be able to rapidly develop hypersonic vehicle concepts and to do so with as little risk as possible. A new technology called Rapid Prototyping will assist the Air Force in reducing risk in choosing the best path for fielding… More

Micro Scale Testing of High Speed Aircraft

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Christopher Tarpley, Aerospace Engineer – (719) 277-7319
Award Amount: $149,948.00
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: The Air Force has the need to advance high speed vehicle technology and experimental flight test methods quickly and cheaply. Heretofore, the Air Force test programs have consumed too much time (up to 5 years) and money ($10,000,000) for a single test flight. This puts too much pressure… More
