  1. N/A

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This subtopic solicited Phase I R&D for an advanced Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) system that would provide fast-scanning high resolution (3 scans/sec at 1cm-1 resolution), low noise, mid-infrared measurements for characterization of spray flames. In Phase I, Advanced Fuel Research, Inc. (AFR) demonstrated FT-IR emission/transmission (E/T) measurements from the NIST spray combustion faci ...

  2. Control Sensor for Turbine Engine Augmentor Rumble and Screech

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    During aircraft turbine engine operation, augmentor (afterburner) operation is often associated with combustion instabilities (oscillations) that can be potentially detrimental to the turbine engine if the resonant amplitude levels are excessive.Oscillation in the frequency range of 50-100 Hz is commonly called

  3. Risk Reduction Efforts for Mini-Diesel Engines Suitable for a Hybrid-Electric/Engine Powered Organic Aerial Vehicles

    SBC: D-Star Engineering Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Under a Phase I SBIR Contract, D-STAR Engineering had defined a V/STOL Unmanned AerialVehicle system that can have a hybrid electric operation with a diesel engine, an electric motorand schemes for combining the two.The most critical technology that needs development for the UAV is a compact, light-weight, fuelefficient engine that can use military logistics fuels such as JP-8 / Diesel.This Phase ...

  4. Advanced Rain and Dust Erosion Resistant Coating Systems

    SBC: HONTEK CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Rain and dust erosions on aircraft forward facing surfaces such as leading edges, engine inlets, nose radomes, propeller blades, and antennas are serious problems. Due to increasing optical missile threats more low gloss rain erosion coatings are beingused. Current commercial lusterless gray rain erosion coating failed the rain test within 36 minutes when tested at 500mph under 1

  5. Develop Low-Weight/Low Cost AC/DC Regulated Converter for V-22 Applications

    SBC: Madison Technology International, Ltd.            Topic: N/A

    To overcome the problems and performance limitations of traditional electronic compass designs and to achieve better performance at a lower cost, an innovative, simpler, more robust magnetic heading sensor is being developed. The approach is based on thethesis that heading sensor accuracy can be made better (and the heading sensor less complex and expensive) than traditional electronic compass de ...

  6. High Accuracy, Automated Satellite Surveillance Network

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Oceanit has successfully shown in Phase I that highly accurate (sub-arcsecond) observations are obtainable utilizing a relatively low-cost COTS system. These highly accurate angular observations can be introduced into the orbit determination process as asupplement to high-quality range data. These improved angular observations help resolve the geometric ambiguity of range-only orbit determinatio ...

  7. KW Class Fiber Lasers

    SBC: PC PHOTONICS            Topic: N/A

    The double-clad multicore fiber laser has proven to be the most efficient, optically-pumped laser. In Phase I, we have demonstated that phase-locking occurs spontaneously among a group of closely packed single mode fiber lasers configured isometrically ina common cladding. This result suggests that, by using our unique power combining technique developed at PC Photonics Corporation, high power o ...

  8. Improved Vehicle Positioning and Navigation Using Low-Cost Sensors

    SBC: R&D Dynamics Corporation            Topic: N/A

    There is a great need of gas turbine engines and auxiliary power units providing improved performance, lower cost, better maintainability, and higher reliability. Foil air bearings do provide a promising choice in meeting these goals. Foil air bearingsare successfully being used in air cycle machines of aircraft environmental control systems. They have shown excellent reliability, maintainabili ...

  9. Adherent Durable Hydrophobic Epoxy Resin Formulation for Underwater Hull Touch-up Repair

    SBC: SONALYSTS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Sonalysts, Inc. proposes applying the concepts developed in Phase I toward the design and development of a prototype Combined Arms Training Support System (CATSS). This prototype will demonstrate the potential for low-cost simulations to be integratedinto training environments. The training audience for the CATSS prototype would range from deployed high-level Naval staff officers to Marine exped ...

  10. Multistatic Acoustic Source for Unmanned Underwater Vehicles

    SBC: THE KILDARE CORP.            Topic: N/A

    A review of acoustic propagation in Shallow-Water (SW) shows thatactive sonar detection ranges are generally limited byreverberation caused by backscatter from the surface, biologicalpopulation, and the bottom. The effects are exacerbated in theVery-Shallow-Water (VSW) and Surf Zone (SF) due to air-bubblesfrom breaking waves and sediment stirred-up by wave action.These unsavory acoustic condition ...
