  3. Pressure Gain Combustor

    SBC: GLOYER-TAYLOR LABORATORIES LLC            Topic: AF182064

    Pressure-gain combustion systems such as an RDE allow for increased thermodynamic efficiency. In a gas-generator or staged combustion system, an RDE would allow for reduced pump size, and an increase in efficiency. For the past decade GTL has been developing novel propulsion modeling methods and hardware. In this effort, the application of an RDE along with a novel complimentary alternative will b ...

  10. X-Ray Tomography

    SBC: RJ Matthews LLC            Topic: AF183021

    Aircraft fleets in the U.S. and around the world are aging. With this age, electronic components are wearing out and in need of replacement. Oftentimes OEMs for electrical components, and the printed circuit boards (PCBs) on which they are placed, no longer exist or have halted production on the parts that are now failing. In many cases, these are parts that have been reliable for decades and orig ...
