  1. A COMPOSITE CERAMIC MATERIAL FOR LOW HEAT REJECTION DIESEL ENGINES

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    CERAMICS HAVE BEEN DEMONSTRATED TO BE VIABLE ALTERNATIVES IN CONVENTIONAL AND ADIABATIC DIESEL ENGINES WITH THE POTENTIAL OF 30% FUEL SAVINGS. THERE IS AN INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION TO DEVELOP CERAMICS IN GENERAL AND SPECIFICALLY FOR DIESEL ENGINES. IN AMBITIOUS DOMESTIC AND FOREIGN PROGRAMS TO UTILIZE CERAMICS IN DIESELS, THE LIMITATION OF CURRENTLY AVAILABLE CERAMICS HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED. IN META ...

  2. A LOW-COST MINIATURE VOID SENSOR

    SBC: SILICON DESIGNS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    MECHANICAL G-SWITCHES ARE PRESENTLY AVAILABLE THAT SENSE WHEN THE ACCELERATION EXCEEDS A SPECIFIED VALUE. CONTACT RESISTANCE IS A PROBLEM EVEN WITH NEWLY FABRICATED MECHANICAL G-SWITCHES. MECHANICAL CONTACTS ARE ALSO SUBJECT TO SWITCH BOUNCE AND DAMAGE DURING THE INITIAL SHOCK OF IMPACT. SILICON DESIGNS HAS DEVELOPED A PROCESS FOR BUILDING MICROMECHANICAL SENSE ELEMENTS ON THE SURFACE OF A SILICON ...

  3. A PREDICTION MODEL FOR ADVANCED LEADING-EDGE VORTEX FLOW CONTROL

    SBC: TARGAZYME, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE IS TO DEVELOP A TOOL FOR DESIGNING VORTEX FLAPS ON ADVANCED FIGHTER AIRCRAFT INCLUDING THE EFFECTS OF VISCOSITY. ANALYTICAL METHODS, INC. PROPOSES TO USE AN UNSTEADY TIME-STEPPING VERSION OF ITS SURFACE SINGULARITY PANEL METHOD, VSAERO, AS A BASIS FOR THIS WORK. THIS WILL GENERATE THE PRELIMINARY VORTEX STRUCTURE (LEADING-EDGE VORTICE, FOREBODY VORTICES, ETC.) FOR THE COMPLETE CONFIG ...

  4. A REAL-TIME 3-D CLOUD SIMULATION SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Aeromet, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROPOSAL DESCRIBES A FEASIBILITY STUDY FOR IMPLEMENTING A REALTIME, THREE-DIMENSIONAL CLOUD MODEL TO SUPPORT REENTRY VEHICLE TEST OPERATIONS. AN EXISTING RESEARCH CLOUD MODEL WOULD BE INTERFACED TO A MESOSCALE ATMOSPHERIC MODEL. THE COMBINED MODELING SYSTEM WOULD BE ADAPTED FOR USE AT THE KWAJALEIN MISSILE RANGE (KMR). FORECASTS OF DETAILED CLOUD FEATURES SUCH AS WATER CONTENT, RADAR REFLECTI ...

  5. A TIME-STEPPING METHOD FOR PREDICTING THE FLOW ABOUT POWERED LIFT VEHICLES AT HIGH ANGLES OF ATTACK

    SBC: TARGAZYME, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE FLOW FIELD ABOUT POWERED LIFT VEHICLES CAN BECOME VERY COMPLEX DUE TO HIGH ANGLES OF ATTACK AND LIFTING JETS. IN ADDITION TO MODELING PROPULSION/AIRFRAME INTERACTIONS, THEREFORE, FLOW PREDICTION METHODS MUST TREAT THE PROBLEMS OF SEPARATION AND THE TRANSIENT EFFECTS OF PASSING VORTICAL STRUCTURES INTERACTING WITH THE AIRFRAME. ANALYTICAL METHODS, INC. (AMI) PROPOSES TO EXTEND ITS POWERED LIFT ...

  6. A WHISKER CERMET FOR JOINING CERAMIC AND METAL COMPONENTS IN DIESEL ENGINES

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    A MAJOR OBSTACLE EXISTS FOR JOINING CERAMIC COMPONENTS TO METAL STRUCTURAL COMPONENTS IN DIESEL ENGINES. TO BRIDGE THE DISPARITIES BETWEEN CERAMIC AND METAL COMPONENTS, A WHISKER-REINFORCED CERMET WILL BE DEVELOPED. THE WHISKER WILL BE THE SAME AS THE CERAMIC COMPONENT, AND A CERMET COMPOSITION WILL BE GRADED FROM THE CERAMIC COMPOSITION TO THE METAL COMPOSITION. A STATISTICAL EXPERIMENT INVESTIGA ...

  7. AIRBORNE ELECTROMAGNETIC INDUCTION SENSING OF SEA ICE THICK-NESS

    SBC: Flow Research Inc            Topic: N/A

    A GROWING NEED EXISTS BY BOTH THE MILITARY AND INDUSTRY FOR A RAPID METHOD OF REMOTELY MEASURING THE THICKNESS OF THE ARCTIC SEA ICE COVER. WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP AN ELECTROMAGNETIC INDUCTION SENSOR TO REMOTELY MEASURE SEA ICE THICKNESS FROM AN AIRCRAFT. THEORY SUGGESTS THIS TECHNIQUE HAS GOOD POTENTIAL. IN ORDER TO VERIFY THE THEORY , A COMPUTER ANALYSIS AND A BRIEF ARCTIC FIELD TEST WILL BE PERFO ...

  8. AN ALUMINUM RIVET FOR USE ABOVE 500 DEG F DEVELOPMENT

    SBC: Measurement Technologies            Topic: N/A

    THE AL-FE-X FAMILY OF ALUMINUM IS PROPOSED FOR USE ON THE AIRFRAME OF THE ADVANCED TACTICAL FIGHTER (ATF). THE NEW ALLOY MAINTAINS ITS STRUCTURAL PROPERTIES ABOVE 500 DEG F, THE TEMPERATURE REQUIRED OF AN AIRFRAME CAPABLE OF EXTENDED OPERATION AT MACH 3. A NEW HIGH TEMPERATURE FASTENER MUST BE DEVELOPED TO FULLY REALIZE THIS ALLOY'S PROPERTIES. MEASUREMENT TECHNOLOGY NORTHWEST (MTNW) SUGGESTS THAT ...

  9. AN INTEGRATED CIRCUIT FOR AIR FLIGHT SENSOR SIGNAL PROCESSING

    SBC: SILICON DESIGNS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE PURPOSE OF AN AIR FLIGHT SENSOR SUBSYSTEM IS TO DETECT THE SIGNATURE OF FLIGHT CONDITIONS AFTER A PROJECTILE HAS BEEN SAFELY FIRED. THIS INFORMATION, WHEN COMBINED WITH OTHER CHARACTERISTICS OF PROJECTILE FIRING, SUCH AS ACCELERATION, PROVIDES POSITIVE INDICATION WHEN IT IS SAFE TO ARM THE WARHEAD. WE PROPOSE TO BUILD THE FLIGHT SENSOR SIGNAL PROCESSING AS A SINGLE, CUSTOM INTEGRATED CIRCUIT. ...
