  1. Simultaneous Particle Imaging Velocimetry and Thermometry (PIVT) in Reacting Flows.

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: A09AT003

    In this Phase I STTR program, ORBITEC and University of Wisconsin-Madison teamed to develop a simultaneous particle image velocimetry and thermometry (PIV+T) diagnostic for reacting flows. In applications such as gas turbine engines, internal combustion engines, and rocket engines, the dynamics of the turbulent combustion necessitate measurement of both temperature and velocity fields to understa ...

  2. A Real-Time, Non-Invasive Monitoring System of Combat Casualties for Early Detection of Hemorrhagic Shock During Transport and Higher Echelon Medical

    SBC: FLASHBACK TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: A09AT027

    On the battlefield, medics must quickly determine injury severity, treat the greatest threats to life, diagnose hemorrhage and establish a triage order. The objective of this research project is to apply our active, long-term learning technology to the task of modeling and prediction of central blood volume parameters from extremely large, and variable physiological datasets. In Phase I, we appl ...

  3. TeraHertz Atmospheric&Ionospheric Propagation, Absorption and Scattering (TAIPAS)

    SBC: COLORADO ENGINEERING INC.            Topic: A09AT001

    Radio wave propagation models have steadily advanced during the past several decades producing what is widely recognized as a set of standard models for the attenuation, dispersion and nominal path of radio waves at frequencies within the radio region of the spectrum (i.e., which we define for these purposes as ~ 100 KHz to ~3 THz) with a focus on .1-1THz. Colorado Engineering, Inc. and the Unive ...

  4. Novel Propellants for Variable Thrust/Isp Colloid Thrusters

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: AF08BT09

    ABSTRACT: Advanced spacecraft will demand thrusters that provide both extremely efficient operation for attitude control and high thrust for orbital transfer maneuvers, albeit with lower specific impulse. The colloid thruster, the most efficient of the electric thruster concepts, forms a Taylor cone to emit charged particles and produce thrust. Colloid thrusters typically emit charged droplets ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Adaptive Materials for Morphing Aircraft Skins

    SBC: COMPOSITE TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT, INC.            Topic: AF06T017

    The overarching objective of the proposed Phase II is to increase the technology readiness level to enable technology insertion at the conclusion of the Phase II effort. During Phase II, efforts will focus on the optimization of novel adaptive materials enabling future morphing aircraft applications. Composite Technology Development Inc. (CTD) will work with Raytheon Missile Systems and The United ...

  7. High-yield plant based manufacturing of bioengineered spider silk (Phytosilk)

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: A06T015

    The high strength to weight and elasticity properties of spider silk make it of significant interest for the production of advanced fibers for military and civilian applications. Plants may offer the only feasible mechanism to produce quantities of spider silk proteins sufficient to sustain large scale manufacturing of these high performance fibers. Successful implementation of bioengineered spid ...

  8. Hypergolic Ignition of Gelled Propellants

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: A06T001

    Hypergolic propellant gels offer improved safety and performance flexibility. However, their longer ignition delays endanger engine health and preclude widespread use. Understanding the physical and chemical paths to ignition can enable improving ignition and realizing favorable IM characteristics of gels. ORBITEC and JHU propose targeted laboratory and modeling experiments to elucidate phenome ...

  9. Soluble Catalysts to Improve Jet Fuel Combustion and Fuel Heat Sink Capacity

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: AF06T019

    Currently, there is a strong need to develop new air breathing propulsion systems to launch vehicles into space, and Rocket Based Combined Cycle (RBCC) propulsion systems likely will be used for this purpose. In the scramjet portion of the cycle, it is difficult to maintain stable combustion, and the overall heat load in a scramjet engine exceeds the cooling capacity that can be provided from the ...

  10. Atomic Layer Deposition on Particles for Nanoenergetic, Ferroelectric Capacitor and Thermal Management Applications

    SBC: ALD NANOSOLUTIONS, INC            Topic: AF02T007

    High performance energetic materials are based on inorganic thermite mixtures such as MoO3/Al or organic compounds such as RDX. Future developments in explosives are dependent on the fabrication of nanoscale materials and composite mixtures that display higher energy release rates. The ability to tailor composite materials precisely at the nanoscale by fabricating multilayer component particles ...
