  1. High-Accuracy Angle Generator for Precision Measurements


    A lack of extreme angular metrology accuracy better than 50 nrad is limiting progress in molecular characterization by x-ray diffraction for important industrial fields such as material science and biotechnology. If we want to advance these fields, a high-accuracy angle generator for characterizing the metrology device across its entire measuring range must be a part of the national metrology tool ...

  2. Accurate Nightlight for Satellite Calibration for Weather and Climate Applications


    This project’s aim is to develop an Accurate Active Light Source (AALS) that can be fielded at selected calibration sites to address NOAA’s unmet needs and improve the calibration of the Suomi NPP VIIRS Day Night Band (DNB) operating in the high gain stage (HGS) under low light level conditions. The DNB HGS has extreme low-light sensitivity that enables a new generation of nighttime imaging. M ...

  3. Probabilistic subseasonal weather forecasts for the energy & agriculture sectors


    This proposal from Climate Forecast Applications Network addresses the challenge of providing business-relevant subseasonal forecasts for the energy and agricultural sectors, including applications to renewable energy. An innovative multi-model prediction system using the CFSv2 and ECMWF forecasts will be developed to exploit the advantages of each model. An interactive web-based dashboard system ...

  4. Ultra High Sensitivity SWIR Methane Imaging Camera


    Methane is the third most prevalent greenhouse gas, whose atmospheric concentration is currently over 1.7 ppm and is about 21 times more potent when compared to CO2. Thus, while the quantitative monitoring of methane levels is necessary, it is also critically important to directly identify the sources of the methane emissions, for example, in ice floes, leaks in pipelines, and also from drilling/f ...

  5. Smart Module Commercial Development Research

    SBC: Mechelen, LLC            Topic: 852

    Most sensor data collection systems are unique to a given application, sensors do not easily transcend across applications or platforms. Smart sensor development improved the ability to utilize common communications to a certain degree, where most used RS-232 or RS-485 type communications protocols, but differences are still found and no uniformity exists in the commercial markets. The Smart Modul ...

  6. Heterogeneous Porous Media for Thermal Transport Mitigation in Hypersonics

    SBC: S. D. MILLER AND ASSOCIATES P.L.L.C.            Topic: AF161005

    ABSTRACT: S. D. Miller and Associates (SDMA) research team has led the field of research in Opacified Fibrous Insulation (OFI) since 2003.Early OFI prototypes equaled the thermal performance of Thermal Protection Systems (TPS) with MultiLayer Insulation (MLI) using gold-coated shields and vastly reduced cost and maintenance of TPS for hypersonic vehicles.In 2015, OFI prototypes demonstrated improv ...

  7. Prediction of Boundary Layer Transition on Hypersonic Vehicles in Large-Scale Wind Tunnels and Flight

    SBC: Arizona Engineering Science LLC            Topic: AF161024

    A comprehensive framework for hypersonic boundary layer transition predictions applicable to wind tunnel and free flight conditions is proposed. The distinguishing feature of this transition prediction framework is that it is developed from the ground up allowing full integration of the important transition regions (receptivity region, linear/secondary/nonlinear stability regimes, etc.) and additi ...

  10. RANS-Based Stick-to-Stress Dynamic Flight Simulation for Aircraft Life Prediction

    SBC: Zona Technology, Inc            Topic: AF161069

    ABSTRACT: Both commercial and military aircraft are being flown/utilized for extended operational time. The aircraft cumulative flight hours often extends the original design limits. Each aircraft manufacturer calculates aircraft fatigue and damage using different techniques. A more accurate prediction of the remaining life and inspection intervals for an individual aircraft is required, as these ...
