  1. Dynamic Frequency Passive Millimeter-Wave Radiometer Based on Optical Up-Conversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 941D

    In the proposed effort, we will leverage this extensive experience and capabilities to realize a frequency agile mmW radiometer that can cover the range of DC-110 GHz and can be scaled to DC-200 GHz under Phase II. Ours is a photonic system that multiplies and up-coverts a low-frequency reference signal onto an optical carrier (laser) using EO modulation, then uses the modulation sidebands to inj ...

  2. Creating Spatial Disorientation in Flight Simulation

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: 122FA1

    Training in the symptoms of Spatial Disorientation (SD) has shown to be valuable in aiding pilots to recognize its onset and provide a means for mitigating its effects, but such demonstrations have traditionally been associated with specialized equipment and devices. Since the vast majority of pilots for the commercial aviation jet fleet are trained (or recertified) on 6-degree-of-freedom (DOF) h ...

  3. IN-PLACE AIR PERMEAMETER FOR OPEN-GRADED DRAINAGE LAYERS

    SBC: Geo-systems Engineering Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A RAPID FIELD TEST IS PROPOSED TO EVALUATE THE PERMEABILITY OF OPEN-GRADED ROAD BASES AND OTHER DRAINAGE LAYERS. THE SAME TEST ALSO SHOULD BE ADAPTABLE TO EVALUATE PERMEABILITIES OF OTHER EXPOSED PAVEMENT LAYERS INCLUDING THOSE COMPOSED OF BITUMINOUS OR PORTLAND CEMENT CONCRETES, AS AN INDEX TO PERMEATION AND POSSIBLY TO DETERIORATION. IT IS PROPOSED THAT THE PERMEABILITY BE EVALUATED THROUGH USE ...

  4. ADVANCED DE-ICING FLUIDS FOR GENERAL AVIATION AIRCRAFT

    SBC: Kohlman Aviation Corp            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED PROJECT WILL DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF THE USE OF ADVANCED TYPE II FLUIDS FOR THE DE-ICING/ANTI-ICING OF GENERAL AVIATION (GA) AIRCRAFT WITH TAKEOFF SAFETY SPEEDS (V2) OF GENERALLY LESS THAN 85 KNOTS. TYPE II FLUIDS WILL BE APPLIED TO SEVERAL GA CATEGORY AIRCRAFT. THE ICE PROTECTION CAPABILITY OF THE FLUID WILL BE EVALUATED FOR DIFFERENT FREEZING PRECIPITATION CONDITIONS. THE EFFEC ...

  5. CORROSION DETECTION IN AGING AIRCRAFT

    SBC: PHYSICAL ACOUSTICS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    A CONCEPT FOR THE DETECTION OF CORROSION IN AGING AIRCRAFT USING ACOUSTIC EMISSION MONITORING IS PROPOSED. CORROSION WILL BE LOCATED THROUGH THE EFFECT THAT IT HAS ON AIRFRAME STRENGTH (10% THINNING RESULTS IN 50% FATIGUE LIFE REDUCTION). ACOUSTIC EMISSION TECHNOLOGY USED ON THE F-111 FIGHTER/BOMBER WILL BE ADAPTED FOR USE ON COMMERCIAL AIRCRAFT. PRELIMINARY CONCEPT TESTING ON A BOEING 720B HAS RE ...
