  1. Continuous-Scan Phased Array Measurement Methods for Turbofan Engine Acoustic Testing

    SBC: ATA Engineering, Inc.            Topic: A102

    To allow aviation growth to continue in the face of increasingly stringent noise pollution standards, new aircraft engines must be designed with noise performance as a principal constraint. Technologies to realize future propulsion noise reduction will require detailed experimental characterization and diagnosis of the acoustic mechanisms and sources within an engine system or component. ATA Engin ...

  2. Defining Handling Qualities of Unmanned Aerial Systems

    SBC: Systems Technology, Inc.            Topic: A105

    Unmanned Air Systems (UAS) are no longer coming, they are here, and operators from first responders to commercial operators are demanding access to the National Airspace System (NAS) for a wide variety of missions. This includes a proliferation of small UAS that will operate beyond line of sight at altitudes of 500 ft and below. Currently the UAS arena includes traditional airframers, established ...

  3. Injector-Integrated Fuel-Air Heat Exchanger Module

    SBC: MICRO COOLING CONCEPTS            Topic: A107

    Modern high efficiency gas turbine engines typically operate with hot section temperatures so high that metal parts in those areas need to be cooled to maintain strength and life properties. A well-established approach to this bleeds a portion of the compressor discharge air to flow through and over turbine parts. As engine compressor pressure ratios continue to increase, the temperature of this c ...

  4. Inexpensive, Rugged and Compact Tunable Laser with Simple Tuning Control for Airborne Fiber Optic Sensor (FOS) Interrogators

    SBC: Freedom Photonics LLC            Topic: A201

    Dryden (Armstrong) Flight Research Center has developed a 4-fiber interrogation system for Fiber Optic Smart Structures (FOSS) sensor networks interrogation. Replacing the expensive, bulky, mechanically tuned swept laser technology used in the FOS system will help reduce the system cost, size and weight, and enable massive deployment. In this program, Freedom Photonics proposes to develop a novel, ...

  5. Aircraft Chemical Sensor Arrays for Onboard Engine and Bleed Air Monitoring

    SBC: MAKEL ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: A201

    Makel Engineering Inc. (MEI) is developing flight capable chemical microsensor arrays for in situ monitoring of high temperature bleed air and turbine exhaust in jet engines. The proposed chemical sensor probes will be a new class of onboard engine instrumentation for real time monitoring engine and bleed air system operation in flight. Sensor arrays developed by MEI have been demonstrated for gro ...

  6. Compact High Power 3D LiDAR System for (UAS) Unmanned Aircraft Systems

    SBC: Eotron LLC            Topic: A202

    Eotron has introduced an improved illumination source for 3D IR Laser Time-of-Flight (ToF) systems based on its patented 3D silicon technology originally developed to improve efficiency and power of solid state lasers. Using proprietary design, fabrication and thermal management techniques, Eotron developed a highly efficient and compact silicon package / assembly for both IR VCSEL and Laser Diod ...

  7. Integrated Technologies Supporting Seamless Oceanic Transitions

    SBC: The Innovation Laboratory, Inc.            Topic: A301

    In this SBIR effort, we integrate existing technologies to create an infrastructure that is ready to leverage emerging technologies to realize an oceanic Trajectory-based Operations (TBO) capability with seamless transitions to/from domestic/oceanic airspace. The system includes the processing of all forms of domestic/oceanic airspace surveillance, including the emergence of space-based Automatic ...

  8. Innovation in the Sky

    SBC: Higher Ground LLC            Topic: A302

    This Phase II proposal presents a scope of work to develop reliable Sense and Avoid for BVLOS Unmanned Aerial Vehicle [UAV] operations. We first analyze a) the requirement for avoidance based on the UAV's ability to get away from danger and b) the suite of candidate technologies needed to detect intruders with ample time to get away. To meet this need we will build a reliable FINE TRACKING sen ...

  9. In-Situ Ethylene and Methane Production from CO2 as Plastic Precursors

    SBC: Opus 12 Incorporated            Topic: H101

    Opus 12 has redesigned the cathode of the commercially available PEM water electrolyzer such that it can support the reduction of carbon dioxide into ethylene and/or methane and suppress the competing hydrogen reaction. Methane and ethylene are well known polymer precursors that can be used as starting material to make plastics in extraterrestrial environments. PEM water electrolyzers have alread ...

  10. Plume Velocimetry Diagnostic for Large Rocket Engines

    SBC: Metrolaser, Inc.            Topic: H1002

    A technique for measuring velocity in rocket plumes called hydroxyl tagging velocimetry (HTV), which was developed previously and demonstrated on a small rocket engine, is proposed for use on a full scale engine. Specific goals of the program include producing a measurement system that can withstand the high acoustic levels of a relevant full scale rocket engine, development of efficient user-frie ...
