  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. Just In Time (JIT) Aircraft Maintenance System

    SBC: Cybernet Systems Corporation            Topic: AF121225

    ABSTRACT:The High Velocity Maintenance (HVM) initiative strives to reduce aircraft downtime while maintaining the most capable air fleet that achieves Air Force mission requirements.Unscheduled maintenance, due to issues uncovered midway into the maintenance work, introduces the most delays that negatively impact HVM turnaround time.To increase the predictability of the actual maintenance required ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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

  7. Full-Scale Near-Field Acoustic Holography for Reduction of Annoyance and Disturbance

    SBC: SOUND ANSWERS, INC.            Topic: AF151021

    ABSTRACT:Noise levels of military jet aircraft have significantly increased as the power of the engines has increased creating a community noise issue around military airfields. Current noise monitoring requirements only measure sound pressure levels which do not correlate to human annoyance / disturbance. Sound Answers plans to apply their extensive Sound Quality background to establish new acous ...

  8. Broadband, Real-Time Non-Intrusive High-Power-Microwave Near-Felds Mapping System

    SBC: ADVANCED FIBER SENSORS, INC.            Topic: AF151025

    ABSTRACT:The feasibility of developing a photonics-based real-time high-power-microwave (HPM) near-field mapping system is to be investigated. The system is intended to contain multiple non-intrusive near-field sensors so that it can simultaneously detect undistorted versions of broadband HPM electric- and magnetic-field transients over a desired field-mapping area. The system will be able to take ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Compact High Channel Count, High Frequency, Rotating Data Acquisition and Transmission

    SBC: INFRARED TELEMETRICS, INC            Topic: AF151071

    ABSTRACT:IR Telemetrics will leverage its existing data acquisition technology to design, build, and demonstrate a Compact, High Channel Count, High Frequency, Rotating Data Acquisition and Transmission System. The modular, scale-able system will digitize with over 18-bit resolution and a minimum 300 kSPS sample rate and be able to spin at over 25,000 rpm. Data transmission will be accomplished wi ...
