  1. High-Performance Fuels

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: AF06194

    ORBITEC proposes to continue the development of high-performance fuels to replace monomethyl hydrazine (MMH) and other storable fuels for in-space propulsion applications. Compounds from various chemical families were proposed in Phase I to address these needs. These families of compounds have greater heats of formation, lower volatility, and lower toxicity than MMH. Their reduced vapor pressur ...

  2. Improved magneto-optic methods for aircraft corrosion detection

    SBC: Quest Integrated, LLC            Topic: AF073118

    ABSTRACT: Corrosion under multi-layer structures is a significant problem for the Air Force. The ability to detect this corrosion rapidly over a large area is also very important. The Magneto-Optic Imager (MOI) is an eddy current visualization tool that has been accepted in the market and has demonstrated the ability to rapidly inspect large areas. The principle application of the MOI within t ...

  7. High Performance Low Integration Cost Magnetometer System

    SBC: A&E INNOVATION            Topic: AF083218

    An innovative data collection and analysis approach is proposed to enable body mount magnetometers for space application. In order to achieve high accurate magnetic field measurement in space, the magnetometer has to be located in a âmagnetically cleanâ place, where the magnetic field from spacecraft is negligible. Usually, the magnetometers are placed on deployable booms, so that the field sens ...
