  1. Prediction and Control of Twin-Tail Buffet of Fighter Aircraft

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The Phase I work has clearly demonstrated the feasibility of the Multi-Disciplinary Computing Environment (MDICE) for prediction and control of twin-tail buffet of fighter aircraft. Several flow control methodologies have been proposed and appliedsuccessfully to a generic fighter aircraft to reduce the twin-tail buffet responses. A new method of flow control using normal leading-edge blowing has ...

  3. EMI Control via System Design

    SBC: NEOTERIC TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This project implements a prototype knowledge based expert assistant to aid in mitigating electromagnetic interference (EMI) from hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs). The concept evolved from a broad investigation of HEV architectures, EMI causes, andcorrective actions during Phase I. The expert assistance includes cost, risk, and programmatic factors to provide prioritized recommendations and accompa ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Rigidized Torus for an Inflatable Solar Concentrator Flight Experiment

    SBC: SRS Technologies            Topic: N/A

    The Air Force has a requirement for space based torus supported concentrators for space propulsion, power, and communications. A torus combining the packaging of an inflatable with the long term benefits of rigidization could enable the use of lightweightmembrane structures for DoD, NASA, and commercial missions. This design is survivable in ultraviolet, atomic oxygen, and space debris environme ...

  6. Prediction of Equivalent System Temperature: A Computer Methodology

    SBC: Applied Data Trends, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    There is a global trend towards utilization of satellite communications for information services. Equivalent system temperature, Ts, is a significant parameter in quantifying the antenna system/link performance, because it represents the noise power spectral density in antenna system figures-of-merit, such as receiver gain/system temperature (G/T), and end-to-end Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR). Unf ...

  7. Development of Specific Pathogen Free (SPF) Penaeus monodon Broodstock for High Health and High Performance

    SBC: High Health Aquaculture, Inc. (HHA)            Topic: N/A

    Shrimp farming is the world's most valuable aquaculture sector with 1994 production of 733,000 MT and crop value of $4 billion. This huge industry depends on wild animals with its seedstock either gathered directly from the sea or produced in hatcheries from wild-caught broodstock. Recently the industry has experienced severe disease problems which in part are due to its reliance on wild animals ...

  8. Development of Highly Reflective Spacecraft Radiator Sprayable Coatings

    SBC: AZ Technology Inc            Topic: N/A

    Thermal control of spacecraft is accomplished through the optical and thermal properties of the eternal surfaces of the vehicle. The use of thermal control coatings or second surface mirrors on these surfaces ar common methods for managing the overall thermal environment of spacecraft. The proposed low solar absorbance ( ) high emittance ( ET ) thermal control (TC) coating(s) shall be developed ...

  9. A Joint Experiment/Computational Study of Endothermic Chemistry In Aviation Fuels

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    High performance military aircraft operating in the hypersonic regime produce large heat loads that can only be managed with endothermic fuels. However, the current knowledge of endothermic chemistry in fuels and its effects over a range of aircraft flight conditions is extremely limited. The proposed Phase I study is aimed at the development of advanced finite rate models to characterize dehydr ...

  10. Non-Contact Magneto-Optical Analyzer for IR Focal Plane Array Materials

    SBC: MORGAN RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Focal plane arrays (FPAs) are one of the most critical and expensive components in infrared imaging equipment, such as nigh vision, security and surveillance systems. In the device manufacturing processes, at present, it is not possible to determine if the final product is successful until all steps and materials have been incorporated. Since this entire manufacturing process can take up to 12 w ...
