  1. Design Tools for Combustion Stability

    SBC: IN SPACE, L.L.C.            Topic: AF083112

    ABSTRACT:A joint experimental and computational project using a carefully designed, flexible test article is proposed to assess the velocity-coupled combustion response of a representative liquid rocket injector element to transverse acoustic disturbances. In the proposed Phase II, the response of an injector flowfield at supercritical pressure conditions will be simulated, measured, and reduced i ...

  3. Surface Treatments for Stainless Steel Actuators

    SBC: IBC Materials & Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF131202

    ABSTRACT: Stainless steel ballscrew components, such as those found in landing gear and flap actuators on the C-130 aircraft, experience wear and subsequent failure due to corrosion, contamination and foreign object damage (FOD). High"dither"conditions, where the actuator undergoes a constant short-travel, high-frequency movement to maintain level flight, can also induce wear on actuator ballscr ...

  4. Method for Evaluating Candidates for Additive Manufacturing (AM) Processes

    SBC: IMAGINESTICS, LLC            Topic: AF141213

    ABSTRACT: A challenge which continues to present a barrier to the utilization of AM and wide spread adoption is knowing when to use the technology. This is particularly problematic in aerospace and in MRO operations because the technology is still emerging, and knowledgeable, experienced practitioners remain in short supply and will likely remain so until the next generation of technicians and en ...

  6. Advanced Propulsion and Power Concepts for Large Size Class Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)

    SBC: Engine Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF131160

    ABSTRACT: Desired tactical requirements for unmanned aerial systems (UASs) exceed current capabilities for performance, reliability, maintainability, cost and supportability. Mission requirements such as extended endurance, increased power for auxiliary/sensor systems, and low altitude, low speed maneuverability are becoming paramount, specifically, in the 10,000 lb class of vehicles. These desir ...

  7. Modular Motor Drive with Programming and Configuration Tools for the Development of Small Aircraft Electric Power and Propulsion Systems

    SBC: P C KRAUSE AND ASSOCIATES INC            Topic: AF151070

    ABSTRACT:Unmanned Air Vehicle (UAV) developers have limited marketplace options for motor speed controllers. The largest commercial controllers are generally limited to below 12 kW and battery voltages of less than 50 V, Although these are well suited to 800 Class helicopters and Giant scale fixed-wing aircraft, they are not powerful enough for larger UAV development. A few high-power options exis ...

  8. Innovative Aeropropulsion Technology for Future Military Assets

    SBC: SPACEWORKS ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF05192

    ABSTRACT: SpaceWorks Enterprises, Inc. (SEI) believes that industry demand exists for a new robust and modern trajectory simulation program suitable for use in design studies up through Preliminary Design Reviews (PDR). This proposal seeks to further develop a trajectory tool that is flexible enough to support a wide variety of space transportation concepts and launch platforms. The tool, called ...

  9. Scaling & Supramolecular Engineering of Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs)

    SBC: Inmondo Tech, Inc.            Topic: A15AT014

    The emergence of metal-organic frameworks has presented an untapped potential for solving US Army individual and collective protection issues. The majority of work on MOF synthesis has been done at lab scale, yielding milligram or gram quantities. To test practical devices, scale up of MOF synthesis processes to kilogram quantities is necessary. However, most large commercial suppliers are uninte ...
