Abstract:Temperature control is a major concern during High Velocity Oxygen Fuel (HVOF) processing in the aerospace industry. Typically, temperature must not exceed 300oF to prevent heat damage/ tempering of the substrates for steel alloys, and even lower temperature requirements for aluminum and titanium… more
Abstract:Aircraft structure and propeller systems utilize both high and low strength steel, cad plated threaded components and fasteners throughout its structure. Threaded joints and fasteners manufactured from these alloys require sacrificial protective coatings due to the corrosive environment. Cadmium… more
Abstract:When the inner diameter (ID) of aluminum landing gear outer cylinders is worn or damaged there is very little that can be done to repair the damage consequently the outer cylinder has to be condemned and taken out of service. The aircraft industry condemns many aluminum strut outer cylinders at a… more
Abstract:Landing gear designs utilize forgings for structural applications, to maximize properties and minimize weight. Although this approach allows for minimal component weight and size, forgings commonly have extended procurement lead time, and are usually an expensive manufacturing method. Phase I of… more
Abstract:Landing gear components manufactured from high strength steel alloys require sacrificial protective coatings to perform safely in service. Cadmium has been the standard coating for such components for decades, but is a known carcinogen and has been targeted for elimination by the USAF. An… more
Abstract:An integrated computational environment for multidisciplinary, physics-based simulation and analyses of airbreathing hypersonic flight vehicles will be developed. These vehicles are among the most promising alternatives for the next generation of Highly Reliable Reusable Launch Systems (HRRLS). The… more
Abstract:We propose a method that specifically addresses the requirement for helicopter engine torque sensor validation by integrating the engine component level model, model reduction techniques, and real-time parameter estimation algorithms. The method starts with a component level turboshaft model.… more
Abstract:The Air Force seeks a large production wind tunnel seeding system with full field steering capability. Additionally, the system must offer control of the particle size and density along with minimal maintenance and flow disturbance characteristics. These features will increase tunnel productivity,… more
Abstract:Semivolatile organic matter is pervasive in the atmosphere. Its effect on the radiation balance of the earth depends on how this material is partitioned between the vapor and particle phases. Yet, no currently available instrumentation provides simultaneous, quantitative measurement of… more
Abstract:As technology trends towards higher system data rates with reduced size and cost, the ability to create high-speed electrical interconnections at low cost is becoming critical. High-speed I/O, integrated along with high I/O parallellicity, is allowing interconnects to achieve over 1Tb/s of total… more
Abstract:The pioneering efforts within the DARPA SENSIT and NEST programs, proved the potential of wireless sensor network (WSN) technology for compelling DoD applications, including surveillance and target localization. These projects'' legacies include hardware platforms, used extensively in academic… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims to provide an information technology based software system that will support productivity for Tribal grantees using a culturally comprehensible, project management tool. The intellectual merit of this project is an enabling… more
Abstract:The proposed Phase 2 project consists of the physical integration of our Phase 1 small, compact exciter with a "flight like" igniter or spark plug capable of hot-fire testing. The exciter/igniter unit will operate to a pre-established subset of expected flight performance requirements established… more
Abstract:Visual Data Mining (VDM) is an Internet-based software that supports spatial and temporal analyses of multimodal NASA science data including satellite images and in-situ sensory data.

Abstract:Andrews Space proposes an inflatable rigidizable wing that can be stored folded or rolled up, and deployed at altitude via an inflation system, and will then cure to form a rigid wing improving the reliability and reducing the risk of an inflatable wing. It will also be much lighter and have a much… more
Abstract:The problem of debris propagation and impact location has been studied since the formation of the Missile Defense Agency because accurate prediction of where and with what probability the fragments created during an intercept will impact the ground is crucial to the determination of possible… 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.
