  1. A WHISKER REINFORCED CERAMIC ALLOY FOR MILITARY DIESEL ENGINES

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

    CERAMICS HAVE BEEN DEMONSTRATED TO OFFER A SIGNIFICANT OPPORTUNITY FOR HIGH TEMPERATURE DIESEL ENGINES. PRECEDING DOMESTIC AND FOREIGN PROGRAMS HAVE IDENTIFIED THE LIMITATIONS OF CURRENTLY AVAILABLE CERAMICS WHICH INCLUDE BRITTLENESS AND FRICTION AND WEAR PROPERTIES. A PROGRAM IS PROPOSED TO DEVELOP A WHISKER REINFORCED CERAMIC ALLOY THAT WILL RESULT IN A TOUGH CERAMIC ALLOY WITH FRICTION AND WEAR ...

  4. AIRCRAFT WHEEL USAGE INDICATOR SYSTEMS

    SBC: Lisi Engineering & Development            Topic: N/A

    PROPOSAL FOR UTILIZING SOLID STATE PIEZO-RESISTIVE SENSORS TO MEASURE AND RECORD CUMULATIVE WHEEL ROTATIONS. WHEEL ROTATION IS SENSED BY EXPLOITING THE FORCE DUE TO NORMAL (CENTRIPETAL) ACCELERATION, WHICH IS A FUNCTION OF THE ROTATIONAL SPEED SQUARED. THE ELECTRONIC PACKAGE IS SMALL (INCORPORATING SMT) AND CONSISTS MAINLY OF THE SENSOR AND A MOTOROLA F68HC11 MICROPROCESSOR. THE MICROPROCESSOR IS ...
