  1. Magnetically Enhanced Vacuum Arc Thruster

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation proposes to develop a new type of electric propulsion device dubbed the Magnetically Enhanced Vacuum Arc Thruster (MVAT). This thruster is itself a variant on the Vacuum Arc Thruster that has been demonstrated via a recently concluded Phase I SBIR contracts from NASA. The VAT was verified to be a throttleable low mass (150g) high efficiency (10% measured), high ...

  5. Development of a rugged, fuel tank compatible, oxygen concentration sensor

    SBC: Advanced Projects Research, Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    We propose to engineer a compact, robust, optically-based sensor for measuring local oxygen concentration in aircraft fuel tanks. This system will utilize absorption of rapidly scanned Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Diode Lasers (VCSELs) by molecular oxygen. This proposed system can measure 100 ppm to 100% oxygen in ambient temperatures from -100 to 300 F utilizing a new spectroscopic frequency ...

  10. Virtual National Airspace with Human Pilots and Controllers

    SBC: Aerospacecomputing, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The behavior of the National Airspace System is the result of the real-time decisions of individual pilots and air traffic controllers. Successes or failures of the system are often due to how they react to the rapidly changing situation and information load that confronts them. A Virtual National Airspace System is proposed that utilizes live pilots and controllers. To maintain their instrument f ...
