Abstract:This proposal presents a hybrid metal-CMC turbine blade. A SiC/SiC CMC airfoil section will be bonded to a single crystal superalloy root section in order to mitigate risks associated with an all-CMC blade inserted in a superalloy disk. This allows current blade attachment technology (SX blade… more
Abstract:Catapult shuttle wheel bearing loading is a function of the aircraft take-off weight and the acceleration of the catapult. The resultant load on the bearings of the existing catapult has significantly changed from the time the subject bearings were selected in 1980. If the projected aircraft… more

Abstract:The value of measuring sleep-wake cycles is significantly enhanced by measuring other physiological signals that depend on circadian rhythms (such as heart rate and temperature) and environmental conditions that are known zeitgebers, such as light exposure. As a result, a more complete picture of… more
Abstract:As aircraft technology continues to evolve, there becomes a need for advanced takeoff systems for aircraft carriers. Increases in aircraft weight and takeoff speed require takeoff systems with reliable components to withstand the increase in force put on the system by the advanced aircraft. In this… more
Abstract:Missile flight test telemetry has been performed at S band (2200 2395 MHz) since the 1960s. In 2007, Department of Defense test ranges acquired access to new C-band frequency ranges (4400 4950 and 5091 5150 MHz). While these new bands offer a substantial increase in the total bandwidth… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: A smaller transmitter package operating in C-band with greater power efficiency will pave the way for newer, compact weapons to utilize the expanded frequency range at C band. BENEFIT: Reduced payload weight, giving off less heat, with longer battery life.

There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
