The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Demulsification and Purification System to Recover Contaminated JP-8


    ABSTRACT: Fuel is critical to any military operation. Preserving fuel that is stored and transported to the battlefield is critical to maintaining a high level of operational effectiveness. Fuel convoys and storage facilities are particularly vulnerable to attack, and in the event of such an occurrence, the fuel must be recovered to mitigate the negative effects this disturbance. Fuel that has bee ...

  2. Novel HTS MagLev System

    SBC: Tai-Yang Research Company            Topic: AF161029

    ABSTRACT: The Holloman MagLev Track (HMT) located at Holloman Air Force Base, New Mexico, is the premier test facility for applications requiring a low vibration environment, while simultaneously experiencing velocities ranging from sub-sonic to supersonic speeds. The Maglev program began in the mid-nineties as an upgrade to the High Speed Test Track, which previously involved high vibration mecha ...

  5. Copper-Coated Carbon Nanotubes for High-Temperature Electrical Wiring


    ABSTRACT: The Phase I proposal presented here details a procedure to produce metal encapsulated carbon nanotubes (CNTs) for integration into wiring for high-temperature applications. The addition of CNTs into traditional metal wiring improves high-temperature conductivity by reducing the losses due to lattice vibration at elevated temperatures. The process is based on a simple, scalable, one-pot p ...

  7. Online Spectroscopic Chemical Diagnostics for Thermally Stressed Fuel Flows


    ABSTRACT: The limits of high-performance aircraft continue to be pushed, requiring more capacity from thermal management systems as hydraulic, mechanical, and pneumatic power systems are replaced with electrical components. Rejecting this heat to the fuel can lead to composition changes and the production of insolubles and surface deposits via pyrolysis and oxidation at elevated fuel temperatures, ...

  8. Durable High Performance Precooler for High Mach Flight

    SBC: Spiritech Advanced Products, Inc.            Topic: AF161074

    ABSTRACT: A major challenge in developing air-breathing engines for high speed flight is the high temperature of the air that is ingested at high Mach numbers. Precooler heat exchangers in front of the fan have been attempted at various times since the 1960s, but none of these concepts have ever flown. SPIRITECH proposes an innovative annular precooler heat exchanger to cool propulsion system inle ...
