  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. Performance Map for Low-Cost Titanium Armor

    SBC: MSDPO            Topic: A06T009

    Microstructure sensitive design for performance optimization (MSDPO) embodies a rigorous mathematical framework for systematic design of material microstructure optimized to meet design requirements. It is deeply rooted in the spectral representations of the invertible linkages between a material's microstructure, its effective macroscale properties, and its processing history. Computationally ef ...

  3. Ceramic encapsulated nanoparticle-based covert taggants for tracking of materiel

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: A06T007

    The Phase I program combined the technologies at Cornell and NEI, and demonstrated the feasibility of novel composite nanoparticle-based taggants for purposes of covert identification. The nanoparticles are an alternative to dyes, inks and other materials used as invisible markers. Key features of the composite nanoparticles are that the fluorescence and environmental stability are substantially e ...

  8. 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 ...
