  1. Rapid Scanning Near-Infrared/Infrared Spectrometer

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This project involves a feasibility study for a rapid scanning near-infrared/infrared spectrometer for transient, simultaneous measurements of CO2 and H20 concentrations, soot volume fractions and temperatures. Such measurements can lead to improved understanding of the structure of turbulent and laminar flames. A commercial instrument that can reliably provide simultaneous gas concentrtaion, so ...

  2. STOICHIOMETRIC DIESEL ENGINE

    SBC: ADIABATICS INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    A FEASIBILITY STUDY ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF A STOICHIOMETRIC DIESEL ENGINE IS PROPOSED USING THE THERMAL IGNITION COMBUSTION CHAMBER. THE ADIABATIC DIESEL ENGINE WITHOUT WATER OR AIR COOLING ALLOWS THE THERMAL IGNITION CHAMBER TO STORE HEAT DURING COMBUSTION AND RELEASE THE ENERGY FOR IGNITION IN THE FOLLOWING CYCLE. INJECTION OF FUEL ON TO 1800-2000 DEG. F WALL TEMPERATURE WILL PREPARE THE FUEL FOR ...

  3. High Pressure Fuel Injected Stoichiometric Engine System

    SBC: ADIABATICS INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    Two major objectives of the U.S. Army is to increase power density and reduce heat rejection. Reducing airflow requirements of the deisel engine will contribute toward both of these objectives. Reducing air-fuel ratio requirements is one of the major cost effective approaches available for significantly increasing power output and reducing heat rejection in today's power output diesel engine. Po ...

  4. Advanced Ground Vehicle Propulsion Technology- High Temperature Tribological Considerations

    SBC: ADIABATICS INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    The primary roadblock to the success of the high output Low Heat Rejection (LHR) diesel engine requiring little or no water cooling is the lack of effective liquid lubrication where target top ring reversal (TRR) temperatures between the cylinder liner and piston ring approach 1000 degrees F. Adiabatics, Inc. has developed a Thermo-sealed plasma sprayed Fe2O3 tribological coating which provides e ...

  5. Submarine Low Cost Littoral Water Sonar Passive Localization System

    SBC: Applied Measurement Systems,            Topic: N/A

    The new joint mission scenarios and stealth interdiction objectives for the U.S. Navy have resulted in the need for improved sensor systems for operations in the littoral environment. A High Frequency Towed Array (HFRA) sonar system, operating in the same frequency band as hull mounted systems, provides better detection, classification, and localization capabilities,and reduces ship maneuverabilit ...

  6. Low-Cost, Fault-Tolerant Controls for Unmanned Aircraft

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Autonomous unmanned systems require provisions for fault detection and handling. Multiply-redundant schemes typically used in aerospace applications are prohibitively expensive for general applications, especially where low cost or small size are critical. A new strategy, proposed herein, offers the potential for low-cost fault-tolerant control of paramter-dependent systems that will be useful in ...

  7. Variable Reluctance Machine- Electric Start System for Gas Turbine Engines

    SBC: Axiom Technology            Topic: N/A

    A Variable Reluctance Machine - Electric Start System for an advanced ship propulsion turbine engine is offered as a replacement to the existing air turbine start system. The VRM technology is capable of producing the required starting torques for the turbine engine, while operating at lower nominal speeds. This will significantly improve start system reliability. The simple design, intrins ...

  10. Polarization Sensitive QWIP Thermal Imager

    SBC: Digital Imaging, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Smart IR weapons must have excellent IR sensor characteristics that exploit as much information as possible to ensure guidance accuracy with low false alarms. Quantum Well Infrared Photoconductors (QWIPs) offer an opportunity to explore long wavelength polarization characteristics. A great deal of attention has been directed toward creating 2D gratings that produce large coupling coefficient. O ...
