  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. Nanotailored Carbon Fibers

    SBC: NANO ENGINEERED MATERIALS CORP.            Topic: AF08T028

    Polyacrylonitrile (PAN)/carbon nanotube (CNT) composite fibers will be spun using gel spinning technology in conjunction with bi-component spinning to obtain small diameter precursor fiber (2 - 6 micrometer). Single component spinning (multi-filaments) will also be conducted. The precursor fibers will have tensile strength >1 GPa and tensile modulus >25 GPa. By optimizing stabilization and carboni ...

  5. 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 ...
