  7. Improved Kinetic Models for High Speed Combustion Simulation

    SBC: Reaction Engineering International            Topic: OSD05T002

    Scramjet propulsion has the potential to power high Mach number flight without the need to carry its own oxidizer like a rocket, thus significantly reducing vehicle flight weight. Numerical simulations will play an increasingly important role in the development of scramjet engines. Hydrocarbon fuels are advantageous for scramjet propulsion because of their higher energy density and ease of transpo ...

  10. Seamless Sensor Network Communications

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF04T015

    Wireless communication systems must operate under challenging conditions. For instance, communication between two ground personnel within an urban environment may not be possible; there may be severe fading or attenuation due to the numerous obstacles present. At the same time, this lack of connectivity is seen as unacceptable from the perspective of the radio operator. A recent concept undergoing ...
