  1. Innovative Flight Instrumentation for Hypersonics

    SBC: Industrial Measurement Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF071265

    In this proposal we exploit the remote sensing attributes of ultrasound to conduct heat transfer studies on hypersonic propulsion components and vehicle materials. In the Phase I program, we have successfully demonstrated the viability of the ultrasonic method to measure surface temperature, local temperature and heat flux. In a series of laboratory studies, we have remotely measured surface temp ...

  2. Propulsion for Miniature Munitions

    SBC: KINETIC BEI LLC            Topic: AF071152

    A compact heavy fueled engine is progressing from a desire to a requirement. A miniature Meyer Nutating Disk Engine provides the means of propulsion that the military has been seeking. An unmanned air vehicle (UAV) will have capabilities that are not currently possible with present internal combustion engines. The miniature high power density Meyer Nutating Disk Engine designed during the Phase I ...

  6. Advanced Combustor Designs Utilizing Inlet Swirl for High Acceleration of Gravity (G) Combustion

    SBC: SPYTEK AEROSPACE CORPORATION            Topic: AF071179

    Spytek Aerospace will soon become a low cost supplier of small high performance gas turbines for expendable UAV military operations, university research centers and hobbyists. During Phase I Spytek Aerospace analytically examined and experimentally assessed two `swirl-maintained' diffuserless high g combustor designs in our ATG-2 combustion rig and engine. Both Phase I concepts feature ultra-low ...

  7. Advanced Truck for High Speed Freight Operations

    SBC: Sharma & Associates, Inc.            Topic: 01FR1

    During Phase 1 of the project, Sharma & Associates, Inc. developed a concept for high speed freight truck intended for 70-ton, regular freight and bi-modal operation, at speeds up to 150 mph. The truck uses a rigid frame and an indpendent, compliant, primary suspension for its basic architecture. Constant contact side-bearings and yaw dampers were also added to improve dynamic performance. Vehi ...

  10. Materials for Superlattice Infrared Detectors

    SBC: MP Technologies, LLC            Topic: N/A

    High performance infrared detectors with cutoff wavelength above 16 micrometers are highly needed for many applications such as early detection of long range missiles, pollution monitoring, and astronomy. Currently available detectors with high quantumefficiency and high uniformity in this wavelength range are extrinsic silicon detectors which have to be cooled below 10K. Here, we propose novel te ...
