  1. Turbopump Cavitation Tools

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: AF071204

    Next generation liquid rocket systems envision novel designs for turbopumps that can operate at high suction speeds (i.e. low inlet pressures), and can be throttled over a wide range of low, off-design flow conditions. This is an extremely demanding flow regime where performance loss and damage from cavitation instabilities can be catastrophic since they can generate large amplitude pressure fluc ...

  2. Improved Bearing Compartment Sealing for Gas Turbine Engines

    SBC: Stein Seal Company            Topic: AF071172

    The project objective is to develop grounded and counter-rotating bearing compartment seals that satisfy the requirements of advanced engines that include 5400 hour operational life, 450 ft/s rubbing velocity for grounded seals and 1200 ft/s for counter rotating seals in a 900o F environment. During Phase I, Stein has conducted experiments to determine suitable high temperature carbon materials by ...

  3. Remote-Controlled Improvised Explosive Device (RCIED) Detection Identification and Classification Algorithms (RADICAL)

    SBC: NOKOMIS, INC            Topic: AF071219

    Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) continue to be the most significant threat affecting our troops today. Efficient electromagnetic capabilities that facilitate detection, identification, classification and geo-location of IEDs and associated subcomponents are critical. Nearly all IEDs utilized commercial electronic devices as triggering mechanisms. Examples include pagers, handheld radios, ga ...

  4. Improving Weapons Bay Acoustical Environments

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: AF071256

    The F-22A main weapons bay experiences severe acoustic loading when exposed to the freestream. The severity and attenuation of this loading is exacerbated by the flight envelope of the F-22A aircraft, as well as the requirement to carry and release “smart” weapons throughout this envelope. This extremely harsh environment can also impact components that are mounted within the bay itself, inclu ...

  5. Plume Simulation Using Advanced Image Processing Techniques

    SBC: Propulsion Science & Technology Inc            Topic: MDA05044

    ABSTRACT: Missile exhaust plume radiant emission is a key observable for any missile defense system using optical sensors. Current flowfield and signature tools cannot properly capture the plume structrue observed by missile defense sensors. This effort is designed to develop and implement image morphing techniques which can be used to interpolate, extrapolate, and correct the spatial distribut ...

  6. CSAR-X Digital Visionic System

    SBC: Sage Technologies, Ltd.            Topic: AF071028

    The proposed system is a wide field of view helmet mounted system that will incorporate short wave infrared (SWIR) camera technology with dual imaging lenses placed just above the operator’s eyes, and fused with a thermal long wave infrared sensor (LWIR). The Sage Team will take a component approach (sensor, processor, and display) that offers the best leverage of commercial technology. The Sage ...

  7. General Hypersonic Propulsion

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: AF071185

    Upgrades to a RANS Scalar fluctuation model (SFM) used to predict variations in turbulent Prandtl and Schmidt numbers in a scramjet combustor environment are proposed. Such upgrades will permit obtaining more accurate solutions leading to improved combustor designs. Experiments to be performed in Virginia Tech (and AFRL) facilities using existing models will be performed focused on SFM validation ...

  8. Virtual Environment Composable Training for Operational Readiness – Total Instructional Package (VECTOR-TIP)

    SBC: CHI Systems, Inc.            Topic: OSD06CR8

    Cultural skills are increasingly important for military actions recently undertaken by the U.S., where close continuous contact with the indigenous population is necessary. All ground forces being deployed in culturally distinct and sensitive areas need to have at least some basics skills, knowledge, and awareness of cultural norms and prohibitions. Passive learning via lectures, tutorials, vide ...

  9. Advanced NDE for SiC Optics Using Micromachined High Frequency Phased Array Ultrasound

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: AF071142

    TRS is pleased to propose an in-situ NDE imaging tool for SiC mirror surface damage (SD), sub-surface damage (SSD) and trapped internal stress detection using piezo-composite based micromachined ultrasound transducer (PCMUT) phased array technology. PCMUT technology has been developed at TRS to fabricate high frequency ultrasound transducers with broad bandwidth and high sensitivity. Phased array ...

  10. Fast Response Fabric Test Setup and Dynamic Fabric Model for BURNSIM

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF071025

    Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc. (ACT) will develop a Fast Thermal Response Fabric Test Setup for various thermal hazard scenarios involving convection (hot gas impingement by the jet engine exhaust), radiation (fire) and combination of convection and radiation (post-crash fire of aircraft, fire flash or bomb blast). The fabric test setup will (i) measure the thermal response of various clothin ...
