  1. Advanced Instrumentation for Ramjet/Scramjet Combustors


    Accurate Automation proposes to design and develop the architecture for an instrumentation system for hypersonic aircraft. We will design an instrumentation system for use in a Mach 8-10 hypersonic testbed for the HyTech engine. We will investigate the feasibility of incorporating a plasma generation capability into this instrumentation system. We will develop an enhanced instrumentation system ...

  3. Coherent Burst Ranging

    SBC: Consultec Scientific            Topic: N/A

    A novel signal encoding/decoding method for laser ranging is proposed in response to solicitation AF96-186. Coherent burst ranging utilizes low cost diode lasers to achieve high precision ranging under ambient light conditions while operating at inherently eye-safe power levels. Proprietary signal processing methods to be developed will allow single-shot range resolution of approximately 1 mm at ...

  4. Rechargeable Lithium-ion Cells Containing Ambient Temperature Molten Salts

    SBC: Electrochemical Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Feasibility of rechargeable lithium-ion cells utilizing two ambient temperature molten salt electrolytes will be investigated. The anions of these electrolytes will be resistant to oxidation; the cation of one of the electrolytes will be resistant to both oxidation and reduction; therefore, in such electrolytes both cathode and anode will be electrochemically stable. The electrolytes will be pre ...

  5. Plasma Ignitor- Aero Ramp Injector for Ramjet/Scramjet Combustors

    SBC: Fluidyne Engineering Corp.            Topic: N/A

    The US Air Force plans to develop and demonstrate an aero-propulsion engine for hypersonic flight to Mach 8. This program focuses on use of hydrocarbon fuels and expendable engine designs for long-range cruise missile applications. A critical element for realization to the Air Force's hypersonic vehile mission is advancement in supersonic combustion ramjet engine technology. Development of conc ...

  7. CAD Conversion Tools for VHDL-AMS Library Generation

    SBC: FTL Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This project enables and incentivizes adaptation of IEEE Draft Standard 1076.1 (VHDL AMS) by mixed signal (analog/digital) engineers by providing a feasible, low risk migration path for existing SPICE like models (equivalence), then adds capability beyond that of SPICE (incentive). Specific work items include "black box" VHDL AMS source code generator technology, SPICEcompatible analog solver tech ...

  8. Multiple Reflection Rayleigh Scattering Flux Monitor for MBE

    SBC: GRADIENT TECHNOLOGY            Topic: N/A

    Gradient Technology in conjunction with Prof. Christopher J. Palmstrom, proposes to develop a new optical monitor capable of measuring the atomic flux emitted from an effusion cell. This technique will utilize novel scattering technology under investigation here at Gradient Technology. We will be using a multiple reflection apparatus to improve the signal-to-noise ratio and optical fibers to ca ...

  9. Supercritical Processing for Carboxyl Terminated Polybutadiene (CTPB)

    SBC: GRADIENT TECHNOLOGY            Topic: N/A

    Current composite propellant formulations utilizing a Carboxyl Terminated Polybutadiene (CTPB) biner are hampered by having only one source of this material available which can meet the propellant specifications. Many of the commercial CTPB materials available do not meet the requirements of molecular weight, acid content and other polymer properties that are needed to form a high performance com ...
