  4. Advanced Optical Diagnostics/Modeling Platform for Plasma Assisted Combustion in Vitiated Air

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: AF13AT04

    ABSTRACT: Modern gas-turbine engines designs for the next-generation warfighter need to reduce exhaust gas temperatures to reduce effective thermal footprint thereby improving the mission capability. In such situations, high-altitude engine operation is often limited by the overall combustion efficiency, lean flame blow out (LBO) limit, and combustion instabilities that results in narrower opera ...

  10. Decision Making under Uncertainty for Dynamic Spectrum Access

    SBC: SHARED SPECTRUM COMPANY            Topic: AF13AT02

    ABSTRACT: SSC and VT develop algorithms and approaches to manage uncertainty in dynamic spectrum access (DSA) systems for small satellite constellations. We use various DSA rule sets such as sensing, database, and monitoring systems to reduce the uncertainty on a systems level. We investigate uncertainty modeling using Dempster-Schafer theory to build belief, disbelief and ignorance maps of spe ...
