  1. Carbon Nanotube Technology for RF Amplification

    SBC: Carbon Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT15

    Theoretical studies have shown that the electrical current in a CNT Field Effect Transistor (CFET) is intrinsically linear. Inherently linear CNTs offer significant improvements in performance without sacrificing power and have the potential for greatly improving range and sensitivity in state-of-the-art receivers such as those used in satellite systems and other communications applicationsModelin ...

  2. Measurement and Modeling of Surface Coking in Fuel-Film Cooled Liquid Rocket Engines

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF15AT21

    Designing an efficient and effective film cooling system to protect critical components of modern rocket engines requires a significant number of problems and challenges to be addressed. Complicating the already difficult hydrodynamic challenges, thermal and/or catalytic cracking of hydrocarbon fuels is always accompanied with coke formation. Coke deposits on combustor and nozzle walls reduce heat ...

  3. Flexible Sensor Network and Its Embedded Integrated Circuits for Structural Health Monitoring

    SBC: ACELLENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: AF16AT03

    Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) is a new technology that can be reliably used to perform on-line health monitoring of any type of structures with minimal human involvement. Current SHM systems can perform the functions required but are heavy, bulky and difficult to integrate with the structure to provide on-board real-time structural integrity assessment. Embedding of currently available sensor ...

  4. A Multiphysics Framework Utilizing Nonlinear Material Models for Predicting Impact of Structural Profile Disruption on High-Velocity Air Vehicles

    SBC: ATA Engineering, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT025

    The aerothermal environment for hypersonic flight vehicles is severe and can generate extremely high material temperatures. These high-temperature environments can cause intense localized heating, which may result in local pockets and/or structural instabilities, especially at vehicle leading-edge regions, and may lead to disruptions that affect vehicle performance. The aerothermal environment may ...

  5. Coupled Multi-Physics Tool for Analysis of Structural Profile Disruption Effects of Aerovehicles

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF17AT025

    High speed air vehicles, already operating at material strength performance limits, are at significant risk when subjected to additional localized heating from sources such as directed energy. This localized heating may result in material softening, pitting and burn through causing structural damage and alteration of the structural profile. This damage can disrupt the aerodynamic performance and ...

  6. Novel Mixed-mode TCAD-Commercial PDK Integrated Flow for Radiation Hardening By Design

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA16A003

    Cost-effective application of advanced commercial electronics technologies in DoD space systems requires early development of radiation-hardened-by-design (RHBD) techniques, and use of simulations is critical to the efficiency of this process. CFDRC has developed an integrated, mixed-mode simulation approach allowing their NanoTCAD device physics simulator to interface with commercial circuit simu ...

  7. Extending Molecular Simulation to Grain Scale for Simulating Response of Energetic Material Under High Strain Rate and Shock Loading

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF17AT023

    High Velocity Penetrator Weapons experience severe stress in terms of high frequency vibration and shock during launch, flight, and on impact. The extreme conditions have significant impact on the survivability of the weapon due to damage of the energetic material and fuze compartment. Molecular dynamics is often used to understand the effect of external shock on the material. However, molecular ...

  8. Simultaneous Time-Resolved Gas and Particle Flow Measurements in a Multiphase Blast Using Particle Imaging Velocimetry and Novel Phase Separation Techniques

    SBC: Metrolaser, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT020

    An experimental method is proposed to enable time-resolved measurements of both gas and particle velocities in explosions containing particles for munitions research. The approach involves novel processing methods for two-dimensional images that allow discrimination of the image content based on particle size. This allows an image containing a poly-dispersed distribution of particles to be decompo ...

  10. Alternative Methods for Creating a Sodium Guidestar

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: AF17AT005

    Adaptive Optics allow ground-based astronomical observatories to overcome atmospheric distortion limited observation by using natural and artificial guide stars to measure the distortion. Sodium-layer guide stars provide near all-sky coverage for high resolution astronomy. Over the last 20 years, Optically Pumped Semiconductor Laser (OPSL), also referred to as Vertically Extended Cavity Surface ...
