  2. Radiation Hardened Digital to Analog Converter

    SBC: Trusted Semiconductor Solutions Inc.            Topic: AF151089

    ABSTRACT: Data transmission in communication systems, RADARs, satellite systems, and other military devices are dominated by analog data conversion. High performance, low power digital to analog converters (DAC) that exceed 3Gsps with 12 bits of resolution and are available in the commercial marketplace, but they lack the radiation hardness required to support military satellite applications.Trust ...

  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 eng ...

  4. 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

    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 exist up to 25 ...

  7. Connecting High-Power Jet Noise Characteristics with Human Annoyance

    SBC: Blue Ridge Research And Consulting, LLC            Topic: AF151021

    The proposed effort will correlate perceptual features and physical source characteristics of high-powered military jet noise with human loudness judgments and corresponding annoyance. Tactical military aircraft noise evokes significant community response because of its high amplitudes and unique features, such as shock content perceived as crackle and low-frequency rumble. During Phase II, candid ...

  10. Structurally Embedded Heat Exchanger


    ABSTRACT: Materials used in high pressure turbine blades limit the life and temperature capability of the component, and thus the attainable thrust or power of the turbine engine.Lowering the temperature of the HP turbine blade cooling air will improve the heat transfer, resulting in lower metal temperatures which allow higher Rotor Inlet Temperature , or conversely longer blade life if the RIT re ...
