  1. An Active Smart Material System for Buffet Load Alleviation

    SBC: Active Control eXperts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed effort investigates the use of smart materials (such as strain actuators and sensors) and modern control theory to suppress unsteady buffet loads encountered by vertical tail aircraft such as the F/A-18. The active smart material system proposed has distinct advantages over traditional passive damping treatments and active articulated control surface techniques. This innovative smart ...

  2. Advanced Aluminum Alloy: Extruded Thin Wall Structural Concepts

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    The primary objective of this proposed work is to develop a method of producing integrally stiffened, complex shaped monolithic structural components in high strength aluminum alloys at a lower cost and lighter weight than equivalent conventional built-up assemblies. In Phase I the feasibility of attaining this objective will be demonstrated by conducting a series of subscale experiments based upo ...

  3. Development of an Effective IR Decoy with Minimal Visible Signature

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Nighttime operations are very attractive for the U.S. Armed Forces since these conditions generally maximize their advantage over the opposing forces. The deployment of IR countermeasures to protect aircraft from heat-seeking missiles, however, may remove the advantage of nighttime conditions and expose the aircraft to anti-aircraft artillery and small arms fire. Therefore, a need exists for an IR ...

  4. Infrared Detection of Atmospheric Corrosion on Metallic Surfaces

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The objectiwe of this proposal is to develop a versatile, inexpensive, and portable spectroscopic probe to quantify the atmospheric corrosion of metal surfaces on aircraft. Since many metals form insoluble salts as products of corrosion reactions, it should be possible to monitor the extent of metal corrosion by measuring the surface coverage of these products. For example, aluminum, which is a ma ...

  6. High Resolution X-Ray Imaging Sensor for Real Time Nondestructive Evaluation

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The advanced materials and sophisticated designs of metal matrix composite components are being used in modern aircraft designs. To detect flaws and other integrity-reducing anomalies in these new materials and to assure the component reliability and accurate failure rate predictions, nondestructive evaluation (NDE) using X-ray inspection is becoming indispensable. Currently used X-ray imaging sen ...

  7. Applications of Neural Networks to Command Centers

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Continuing increases in computing capability present numerous opportunities to assist the staff of a command center as they analyze enemy operations, construct and evaluate courses of action, and monitor the execution of the selected option. Nowhere are these opportunities more critical than in the areas of national and theatre missile defense. ALPHATECH has developed the most advanced and mature ...
