  2. Autonomous UAV Aerodynamic Performance Analysis for the Near-Ship Environment

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: N07T004

    The overall goal of this STTR program is to develop an efficient, high-fidelity, CFD-based design tool for the simulation of ship-board flight testing of autonomous UAV systems. In the first phase of this program, an overall flight simulation framework that employs a modular approach to the flight simulation problem was developed. Phase II of the program demonstrated a fully coupled aircraft/ship ...

  3. Computing With Chaos

    SBC: FirstPass Engineering PC            Topic: N12AT013

    Our initial, practical and potentially commercial approach, based upon years of basic and applied research in chaotic computation, was developed in Phase I of our project. Following upon phase I of the STTR project we propose, in Phase II, to engineer, synthesize, and exploit the rich, intrinsic dynamics of nonlinear and chaotic circuits and systems to implement reconfigurable, secure and noise re ...

  5. Design Optimization and Analysis of Advanced Exhaust Systems

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: N14AT005

    Historically, aircraft engines have featured relatively simple axisymmetric exhaust shapes with several moving parts; however, future engine exhaust systems are expected feature compact, sinuous ducts with complex non-axisymmetric shapes, fixed exit areas, thrust vectoring etc., constructed with a minimum number of moving parts. Their exhaust plumes are currently not well understood; however, LES ...

  8. Improving the Life Expectancy of High Voltage Components Using Nanocomposite Surface Solutions

    SBC: Pneumaticoat Technologies Llc            Topic: N14AT025

    Moisture buildup on high voltage antenna components can cause electrical shorts that damage system parts and produce communication noise. Not only are significant costs incurred repairing and replacing damaged components, but critical operations communications can be disrupted by these electrical discharges. This STTR proposal will apply hydrophobic and superhydrophobic coatings to antenna compone ...

  9. Improving the Life Expectancy of High Voltage Components Using Nanocomposite Surface Solutions

    SBC: PolyK Technologies, LLC            Topic: N14AT025

    We propose to develop a multi-functional coating technology using a three-component nanocomposites to achieve excellent syperhydrophobicity, anti-icing, enhanced track-resistance, and high dielectric breakdown strenght. The coating will be compatible with current Navy existing VLF device materials and be ease of applications in outdoor field, and be long lasting requiring infrequent applications.
