  1. Low-cost, multi-spectral treatment for exo-atmospheric ballistic targets

    SBC: Synectic Research And Analysis, Inc.            Topic: MDA04T023

    This Phase II effort demonstrates the feasibility of integrating a chemically powered or “active” infrared (IR) treatment into an inflatable device and then perform three experimental excursions with the hardware: 1) achieve a tunable IR signature by cooling the surface; 2) achieve tunable IR emissions combined with a predetermined and fixed radar cross section (RCS); and 3) achieve both varia ...

  3. Combustion-Based Actuator for Flow Control in Transonic Flight Applications

    SBC: Virtual Aerosurface Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF03T014

    Combustion powered actuation (COMPACT) is a flow control technology developed at Georgia Tech which utilizes a miniature combustion chamber (cubic centimeter scale) to produce high-speed pulsed jets suitable for aerodynamic flow control (separation control, drag reduction, shock control, etc.) at transonic or supersonic speeds. The system is lightweight, can be operated with passive fluidic valve ...

  4. Shear Stress Sensor Using Shape Memory Films

    SBC: DOMINCA LLC            Topic: AF03T010

    There is a need for a low profile, simple, accurate, localized, responsive sensor to measure shear stress in fluid flow. The unusual properties of shape memory alloys, and of Ni2MnGa in particular, suggest they could be sensing elements for shear. In recent years, single crystal films of Ni2MnGa have been grown by Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE). Once released from their substrate, these films hav ...

  10. Neural-Network-Based Adaptive Flow Control for Maneuvering Vehicles

    SBC: GUIDED SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF04T027

    Conventional flow control methods employ actuation frequencies that are the same order as the characteristic frequency of the flow. Georgia Tech has demonstrated novel high-frequency synthetic jet actuation to modify the apparent aerodynamic shape of aerosurfaces and achieve quasi-steady flow reattachment over an otherwise separated airfoil. Practical application of this technology in dynamic ma ...
