  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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. A Universal Device for Performing Cricothyrotomies

    SBC: Wolf Technical Services, Inc.            Topic: DHP13015

    The purpose of this Phase II program is to develop an innovative, low cost, all-in-one surgical instrument for performing cricothyrotomies and managing airway trauma on the battlefield, with improvements aimed at ultimately reducing mortality rates associ

  5. Micro Electro-mechanical Systems (MEMS) Safe & Arm for Rocket Motor Ignition

    SBC: Black Hills Nanosystems            Topic: MDA14022

    Ignition of rocket motors can be performed using low-volt firing components, but MIL-STD-1901A requires mechanical isolation for safety. While traditional safe & arm devices are available, they are relatively large and heavy. Recent progress in MEMS has developed miniature safe & arm devices for low-cost munitions such as 40MM grenade and airburst munitions. The Black Hills Nanosystems team has ...

  6. Variable Gravity Two-Phase Heat Sink for Airborne Directed Energy Systems

    SBC: MUDAWAR THERMAL SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: MDA14016

    The proposed study concerns the development of a robust two-phase cooling module for airborne directed energy systems. There are five overriding objectives for the proposed Phase I study: (1) cooling module design, fabrication and instrumentation; (2) two-phase cooling loop development; (3) thermal tests; (4) theoretical model of cooling performance as a function of velocity and surface orientati ...

  7. Semantic Technology for Logistics Systems Interoperability and Modernization

    SBC: Praeses, L.L.C.            Topic: AF151028

    ABSTRACT:Typically, an organization like Air Force Material Command (AFMC) has a large computing environment which grows organically over a period of years with a mix of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) and custom applications, often with overlap and gaps in functionality. Understanding this application environment what is there and who uses it, and the purpose being served can be very difficult. T ...

  8. Logistics Data Management, Error Handling, Corrective Action Framework

    SBC: Praeses, L.L.C.            Topic: AF141036

    ABSTRACT:Software applications within any large-scale enterprise environment rarely, if ever, live in isolation. System users require access to enterprise functions regardless of the actual system in which that functionality may exist. Therefore, such distributed systems need to be connected into an integrated solution. The consistency of the data throughout this integration process is paramount a ...

  10. 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 ...
