  1. Adaptive Control of Synthetic Jet Arrays with Unknown Nonlinearities

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: AF04T027

    Active flow control using synthetic jet actuators has been the subject of significant research in recent years. Modulated input signals to achieve flow control objectives have been shown to be highly nonlinear and complex. Developing a comprehensive, wind tunnel-validated model of synthetic jet actuators in a single application is technically challenging and expensive. Given the varied and growi ...

  2. Carbon Fiber Nanotube Reinforced Alumina Nanocomposite

    SBC: HY-Tech Research Corp.            Topic: AF05T023

    Reinforced tough ceramics that fail gracefully are requied for structural components in airframes and engines of military and commercial airplanes. The expected toughening was not realized when alumina powder, containing carbon nanotubes (CNTs), was consolidated by hot isostatic pressing due to the destruction of the CNTs at the high temperatures encountered. HY-Tech has demonstrated in the Phase ...

  3. Instrumentation for Monitoring Breath Biomarkers for Diagnosis of Health, Condition, Toxic Exposure, and Disease

    SBC: RESPIRATORY RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: AF04T017

    Exhaled breath condensate (EBC) pH is a non-invasive measurement capable of identifying lung redox- and acid-stresses that occur in association with inflammatory conditions (pneumonia, trauma, asthma), acidic gas inhalation (chlorine), and gastric acid aspiration. Phase I efforts focused on the development of methodology to continuously measure EBC pH in critically ill or injured mechanically-ven ...

  4. Diode Laser-Based Flight Test Instrumentation for Scramjets

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF04T012

    This Phase II STTR project will continue the research and development of a simultaneous multi-species sensor system for scramjets flight test instrumentation. The sensor system is based on modulation-frequency multiplexing to combine several laser wavelengths and using a single two-color photodiode detector to collect the laser signals along the same optical path. High-sensitivity detection of c ...

  5. Ultrahydrophobic Coatings


    Due to the staggering costs stemming from corrosion of metal structures, there is a tremendous need to develop multifunctional coatings that can out perform traditional coatings. This research program will develop robust, inexpensive ultrahydrophobic coatings that repel water and corrosion causing materials as a first line of defense for metal. Various surface modification approaches have report ...
