  1. Modular EP Diagnostic Instrumentation Cluster (MEDIC)

    SBC: MSNW, LLC            Topic: AF161004

    ABSTRACT: The Modular EP Diagnostic Instrumentation Cluster (MEDIC) is a self-contained plasma diagnostic instrument suite uniquely suited to the task of characterizing and comparing thruster operation in ground test and on-orbit environments. Of paramount importance to the qualification of electric propulsion (EP) systems is the measurable influence of the ground testing and evaluation (T&E) faci ...

  2. Time-Resolved Electron Beam Fluorescence

    SBC: MSNW, LLC            Topic: AF161006

    ABSTRACT: An innovative diagnostic, Time-Resolved Electron Beam Fluorescence (TREBF), will be developed that possesses the measurement capabilities needed to understand test facility effects on electric propulsion (EP) systems. Even the most advanced test and evaluation vacuum chambers are incapable of replicating the pressures encountered in geostationary earth orbits. These elevated background p ...

  3. Electric-based Combined Cycle Thruster for Multi-mode Propulsion

    SBC: MSNW, LLC            Topic: AF162010

    The Electric-Based Combined Cycle (EBCC) thruster is a new approach to spacecraft propulsion that combines the high thrust of a chemical combustion system and the high Isp of an electric propulsion thruster into a single thruster. In EBCC, a chemical propellant is burned in a sub-100 N rocket within a pulsed EP system. That decomposed, hot, neutral gas is then accelerated in a 5kWclass neutral ent ...

  4. Instrumentation for carbon-carbon structures in extreme environments

    SBC: Exo-Atmospheric Technologies LLC            Topic: AF171020

    An integrated measurement sensor for carbon-carbon (C-C) structures is needed for testing in arc jet facilities to meet testing needs for current and future hypersonic flight systems. A commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) high frequency response pressure sensor and a fabricated temperature, heat flux, and recession sensor built directly into a C-C substrate will be integrated into a test article for ...

  5. Synthesis of HAN and HEHN in a Continuous Mix Process

    SBC: Digital Solid State Propulsion, Inc            Topic: AF171061

    Production of hydroxylamine nitrate (HAN) and hydroxyethyl hydrazine nitrate (HEHN) is of great concern for the manufacture of AF-315E. Current stockpiles of heritage ingredients held by AFRL are being depleted and those manufacturers are no longer in exi

  6. Thermal Modeling Base High-Temperature Polymer Matrix Composite (PMC) Structural Repair

    SBC: Convergent Manufacturing Technologies US Inc.            Topic: AF171112

    The use of polymer matrix composites in aircraft is increasing rapidly. Consequently, the need to improve efficiency, quality, and reliability of on-aircraft structural repairs is paramount. To regain original performance, repair materials (including str

  7. Enhanced Starting Reliability and High Altitude Operation of Internal Combustion Engines on Miniature Munitions

    SBC: Systima Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF161098

    The focus of this research and development effort is the maturation of a small-displacement internal combustion (IC) engine with reliable, on-board, in-flight, start/re-start capabilities specifically targeting compressed carriage sUAS aerial vehicles that are remotely deployed.The advantage of integrating of IC engines into these platforms is a significant increase in range and endurance expandin ...

  8. NDI Tool for Heat Damage Detection in Composites

    SBC: Veritox            Topic: AF161121

    The incipient thermal damage (ITD) of carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) composites cannot be detected by common nondestructive evaluation (NDE) methods, such as ultrasound or visual inspection. ITD, however, can reduce matrix dominated mechanical properties of composites and, thus, requires detection and evaluation to ensure the integrity of composite structures that might be subjected to the ...

  9. Prediction and Measurement of the Soot Build-Up in Film-Cooled Rocket Engines

    SBC: JOHNSON ROCKETS            Topic: AF15AT21

    This Phase II STTR effort is focused on generating the data necessary to identify the phenomenology that produces carbon deposition within kerosene film cooled rocket engines.This data is essential to guide the model development and validation process.Program outputs will be both data and a physics-based model for carbon deposition.

  10. 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 ...
