While the source of the… more
Abstract:Our Phase I program will extend and validate a high-speed engineering transitional model (ETM) using new CUBRC data sets (such as HIFIRE-1) of interest to the Air Force. The ETM is responsive to tunnel noise and wall heating, and predicts the overshoot in heat transfer observed in transitional data.… more
Abstract:Control and management of cryogenic propellant tank pressures in low gravity is an important technical challenge to overcome for future long duration space missions. Heat leaking into the propellant tanks leads to self-pressurization of the tank due to vaporization. Advanced techniques such as… more
Abstract:Characteristics of missile plume signature emissions have a great potential to enhance defensive capabilities in a number of important areas related to Ballistic Missile Defense Systems (BMDS). Supporting MDA's engineering applications related to missile typing, discrimination, tracking, algorithm… more
Abstract:This proposal is focused on the development of a comprehensive aero-acoustic toolkit that can predict acoustic signatures of tactical projectiles. Development will focus on identification of noise generation mechanisms and their spectral content, propagation of the noise through non-uniform media… more

Unified kε and algebraic stress (EASM) turbulence models, shown to adequately simulate fundamental high-speed jet data sets and now being validated with… more
Abstract:The F-35 main weapons bay experiences severe acoustic loading when exposed to the freestream. The severity and attenuation of this loading is exacerbated by the very complex geometry of the weapons bay and the highly non-uniform approach flow. This extremely harsh aeroacoustic environment can also… more

Abstract:This Phase I SBIR project will focus on the design of intelligent information management techniques across large-scale enterprises, with special emphasis on the needs of the Department of Defense (DoD), but with applicability to a wide array of government and commercial applications. Building on… more
Abstract:Daniel H. Wagner proposes to explore and develop the method and the mathematics by which information and networks can be dynamically evaluated to minimize the transmission or display of redundant, low-value data while assuring that high-value information and subsystems are available. To do this, we… more

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.
