  1. A 10-20 K Cryocooler for Cooling Electro-Optical Payloads

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF093083

    ABSTRACT: Advanced space-borne infrared detectors require cooling in the 10 to 20 K temperature range. Cooling loads will be approximately 0.25 W to 1.0 W for the detectors, with additional loads at higher temperatures for other subsystems. A multistage cooler, capable of providing refrigeration at more than one temperature simultaneously, can provide the greatest system efficiency and lowest m ...

  2. Advanced Fuel System for Low-Bandwidth Screech Suppression

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF103197

    ABSTRACT: Combustion stability is critical to the performance of augmented military jet engines. Instabilities such as screech can result in reduced augmentor performance, blowout, or even catastrophic failure. Screech remains a difficult problem to predict and mitigate, and its occurrence can limit the operational flight envelope of military systems. Many of the passive techniques used to sup ...

  3. A Hybrid Thermal Management System for Space Electro-Optical Payloads

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF103072

    ABSTRACT: Advanced space-borne electro-optical payloads require cooling at temperatures of 10 to 20 K. Cooling loads for these detectors will range from 0.25 W to 1.0 W at the primary load site, with additional loads at higher temperatures. During this program, we propose to build and test a multi-stage hybrid cryocooler that is optimized for cooling at a primary load temperature of 10 to 20 K. ...

  4. Passive Optical Sensor for Real Engine Diagnostics

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF103219

    ABSTRACT: Combustion instabilities, such as screech, are an ongoing challenge for augmented military propulsion systems. Diagnostics that elucidate the mechanism(s) of combustion instability are needed to increase the robustness of current engines and to develop improved design rules for future systems. Diagnostic measurements in augmentors are challenging due to the hostile environment and lim ...

  5. Small Integrated HFI Sensor for the AVR-2B

    SBC: SOLID STATE SCIENTIFIC CORPORATION            Topic: SOCOM11001

    "SSSC is pleased to propose the development and delivery of a Hostile Fire Indication Sensor (HFIS) based on the Phase I design concept. The resulting system will limit the number of circuit card assemblies to two: one for the short wave infrared (SWIR)

  6. LIQUID-VAPOR FLOW REGIME TRANSISTIONS FOR USE IN DESIGN OF HEAT TRANSFER LOOPS IN SPACECRAFT

    SBC: Aeta Corp            Topic: N/A

    LOW SPEED, TWO PHASE (VAPOR-LIQUID) FLOW REGIMES ARE IMPORTANT TO SEVERAL SIGNIFICANT HEAT TRANSFER PROBLEMS IN SPACECRAFT. LOW SPEED FLOW RATES ALSO CREATE THE MOST GRAVITY-AFFECTED FLOW REGIMES. HIGH SPEED FLOW RATES CREATE FLOW REGIMES THAT ARE AFFECTED LITTLE BY GRAVITY. FEW STUDIES EXIST WHICH GIVE AN OVERVIEW OF FLOW REGIMES IN ZERO GRAVITY. IN PARTICULAR, FEW STUDIES HAVE ATTEMPTED TO USE R ...

  7. LIQUID HYDROGEN COOLED CONDUCTORS FOR PULSED HIGH POWER APPLICATIONS

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    THERE ARE NUMEROUS APPLICATIONS WHERE THE THERMAL AND ELECTROMAGNETIC PERFORMANCE OF PURE METAL CONDUCTORS CAN BE APPRECIABLY ENHANCED BY COOLING WITH LIQUID HYDROGEN. ONE SUCH APPLICATION INVOLVES COOPER AND TUNGSTEN CONDUCTORS OF ELECTROMAGNETIC LAUNCH SYSTEMS COMMONLY KNOWN AS RAIL GUNS. THIS PROPOSAL ADDRESSES A NOVEL CONCEPT TO ENHANCE THE PERFORMANCE OF RAIL GUNS BY INCREASIG THEIR EFFICIENC ...
