  1. Advanced Measurement Capability of Turbine Engine Exhaust and Jet Flows through Non-intrusive Methods

    SBC: Non-Contact Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF19CT010

    Advanced Air Force turbine engines with integrated engine exhaust systems require diagnostic flow measurements. Integration of these systems into altitude test cells creates problems with T&E requirements such as impingement problems, exhaust cooling spray blowback, acoustic emission issues and limited space for measurement systems. Propulsion system analysts need better understanding of low aspec ...

  3. Design of Easy-To-Use Structural Alloy Feedstocks for Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: Elementum 3D, Inc.            Topic: A18BT003

    There is a military and industry need for easy-to-use, versatile alloys for metals additive manufacturing (3D printing) that print consistently regardless of the specific process or machine and without requiring in-depth metallurgical or manufacturing knowledge. Such capability is critical for soldiers to be able to make needed items on demand in the theater of war. In addition, the alloy will be ...

  4. Freeze Casting of Tubular Sulfer Tolerant Materials for Solid Oxide Fuel Cells

    SBC: Millennitek, LLC            Topic: A14AT011

    Solid oxide fuel cells have long suffered from degradation due to impurities in the fuel and complexities associated with dissimilar materials and high operating temperatures. This degradation lowers the usable cell power output and requires ancillary equipment for fuel sulfur removal and reformation. A unique microstructure for a tubular anode-supported SOFC is being developed using a novel freez ...

  6. Machine Learning of Part Variability for Predictive Maintenance

    SBC: EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN & ANALYSIS SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: AF20ATCSO1

    High Cycle Fatigue (HCF) characterization and maintenance accounts for a significant portion of the overall life cycle cost of most military propulsion systems.  A key variable that drives HCF margin is dynamic response which is directly related to the geometry of each part.  This is especially true of integrally bladed rotors (IBRs, or blisks).  It has been well established that HCF is a proba ...

  8. Power Dense Turbo-Compression Cooling Driven by Waste Heat

    SBC: Mantel Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N19AT013

    The U.S. Navy seeks methods to improve the fuel economy of marine diesel engines through utilization of waste heat. Low temperature engine jacket water, lubrication oil, and aftercooler air are largely untapped streams of thermal energy on these ships, but their utilization circumvents many operation challenges associated with exhaust gases. For example, variable and high exhaust gas temperatures ...

  9. Stable High Bandwidth AO Control with physical DM constraints

    SBC: Guidestar Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF18AT008

    Adaptive optics (AO) can compensate for the aberrating effects of atmospheric turbulence which degrade the performance of high energy laser (HEL) weapon systems and, as such, is an enabling technology for effective deployment of HEL weapon systems. A key component in an HEL AO system is the deformable mirror (DM). However, mechanical constraints in currently available DMs limits AO system performa ...
