  1. Electrical power generation for sustained high speed flight

    SBC: Johnson Research & Development Co Inc            Topic: AF08BT25

    ABSTRACT: Providing electrical power for long duration hypersonic flight is a technology that is required to bring about this revolutionary mode of transport. Whether for weapons delivery or for space access, the long duration missions anticipated require a novel approach to the generation of electrical power during flight. Scramjets contain no rotating shafts from which typical generators or mec ...

  2. Computational Prediction of Kinetic Rate Constants

    SBC: ACES QC, LC            Topic: AF05T010

    This STTR phase II proposal addresses AFOSR's task to: "Develop seamless, easy to use, efficient code to calculate electronic wave functions and potential energy surfaces of molecules and predict kinetic rate constants for reactions a priori." This is a long-unsolved problem, fundamental to chemistry, where quantum chemical methods must be extremely accurate to yield reliable rate constants. Yet u ...

  5. Electromagnetic Launching for Affordable Agile Access to Space

    SBC: Advanced Magnet Lab, Inc.            Topic: AF05T001

    The conceptual design of a novel, hypersonic electromagnetic launch system has been developed. Phase-1 assumed a 100-kg projectile leaving the launcher at 7,000 m/sec. The projectile is propelled and levitated by electromagnetic forces inside a tube filled with low pressure helium. A controlled acceleration profile, fully adjustable to the requirements of various missions, is used to reach 5000 ge ...

  7. Direct Toxin-Specific Biowarfare Detector

    SBC: Fractal Systems, Inc.            Topic: A04T010

    After the successful demonstration of our Phase I approach, we propose to develop in Phase II a multispecific biowarfare electrochemical sensor for simultaneous detection of 5 toxins and 2 biothreat bacteria (anthrax spores, tularemia bacteria, botulinum toxin A, cholera toxin, staphylococcal enterotoxin B, Shiga toxin and ricin toxin). The sensor will utilize electrochemical aptamer-mediated prot ...

  9. Combustion-Based Actuator for Flow Control in Transonic Flight Applications

    SBC: Virtual Aerosurface Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF03T014

    Combustion powered actuation (COMPACT) is a flow control technology developed at Georgia Tech which utilizes a miniature combustion chamber (cubic centimeter scale) to produce high-speed pulsed jets suitable for aerodynamic flow control (separation control, drag reduction, shock control, etc.) at transonic or supersonic speeds. The system is lightweight, can be operated with passive fluidic valve ...
