  1. Active Control of Lean Blowout Using an ANN-Based On-Line Direct Controller

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N04126

    Combustor Lean BlowOut (LBO) is a significant challenge in modern military gas turbine combustors. LBO can occur either during rapid engine deceleration or during operation at idle conditions with water/steam ingestion. Current practice is to design adequate safety margins to avoid the onset of blowout. However, significant engine performance improvements can be realized though the development o ...

  2. Adaptive Hyperspectral Sensor for Battlefield Combustibles

    SBC: SOLID STATE SCIENTIFIC CORPORATION            Topic: AF04207

    The objective of this program is to develop a wide field of view spectral imaging sensor to support theater surveillance and intelligence. The AHS operates in the Mid Wave Infrared (MWIR) band and provides day/night spectral target cueing, geolocation and identification of hot battlefield threats. Currently deployed EO sensors can measure broadband MWIR signals, but are incapable of providing adva ...

  3. A DNA Taggant Watermarking System

    SBC: EAGLE EYE, INC.            Topic: AF04124

    Taggants are small objects used to label things or people that need to be traced. Synthetic DNA Taggants are ideal for this, since very small amounts can be detected if the sequence is known, and can be disguised by natural DNA in the environment. Known protocols for DNA amplification (e.g. PCR) allow for very sensitive DNA detection, but suffer from disadvantages: the apparatus is not very portab ...

  4. Advanced CFD Software for Improving Durability of Turbine Inlet Guide Vanes

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N03187

    In high F/A military gas turbine combustors such as JSF, localized pockets of carbon monoxide and hydrogen can exit the combustor, causing severe cooling challenges for designers of turbine inlet guide vanes. Instead of cooling the vane, cooling air can interact with the hotpath flow to release heat near the vane surface, resulting in durability challenges and possibly catastrophic damage. In this ...

  5. Advanced Helmet for Maintainer Head and Hearing Protection

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N04255

    Improved head and hearing protection is required for aircraft maintainers working on a carrier flight deck during launch and recovery operations. The current head protection is inadequate in many aspects including impact protection, hearing protection, cleaning, comfort, and compatibility with night vision goggles (NVGs) and with chemical, biological, and radiological (CBR) equipment. Creare pro ...

  6. Advanced PC Scene Generation Techniques & Hardware Architectures

    SBC: RADIANCE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA04027

    Radiance Technologies proposes to design and implement a PC-based Laser Radar (LADAR) Scene Generation System. The system architecture will support flexible configuration of the computational elements and subchannel rendering elements within a parallel graphics system. The scene generation system will interface, at a minimum, with the RT-Champ and RT-Flites government sponsored scene simulation co ...

  7. Analysis Tools for Detection and Diagnosis of Biological Threats

    SBC: ALPHA-GAMMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: CBD04113

    DNA microarray technology, in combination with statistical and predictive modeling tools, could be used to evaluate thousands of genes against distinct gene expression patterns induced by chemical/biological agents to provide early identification and speed therapeutic intervention. The overall objective of this Phase II effort is to leverage existing public domain resources and commercial tools t ...

  8. ANNULAR FLOW ELECTROTHERMAL PLUG RAMJET INVESTIGATION AS A HYPERVELOCITY PROJECTILE LAUNCHER

    SBC: SRS Technologies            Topic: N/A

    A NEW SYSTEM, THE ANNULAR FLOW ELECTROTHERMAL PLUG RAMJET, IS PROPOSED AS A ALTERNATIVE TO CHEMICAL ROCKETS AND ELECTROMAGNETIC LAUNCHERS AS A KINETIC ENERGY WEAPON. THIS SYSTEM APPEARS TO BE CAPABLE OF ACHIEVING THE HYPERVELOCITIES NECESSARY IN REASONABLE LAUNCHER LENGTHS, PRIMARILY BECAUSE IT DOES NOT ACCELERATE EITHER THE PROPELLANT OR THE PROPULSION SYSTEM REQUIRED TO ACHIEVE HYPERVELOCITIES. ...

  9. A Novel, Bio-inspired Advanced Microfluidic Power System (BioAMPS)

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A04139

    Our overall objective is to develop (design, fabricate, demonstrate) a Bio-inspired Advanced Microfluidic Power System (BioAMPS) to extract energy from biofuels. We successfully met all Phase I goals and demonstrated a novel, proprietary enzymatic cathode and a microbial anode. We enhanced electron transfer efficiencies via specially engineered electrodes and achieved an order of magnitude increa ...

  10. ANTI-SIMULATION FOR PENETRATION AIDS

    SBC: Nichols Research Corp            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED RESEARCH WILL EXAMINE THE ANTI-SIMULATION TACTIC BOTH FROM THE STANDPOINT OF THE OFFENSE AND FROM THAT OF THE DEFENSE. THE OFFENSE POINT OF VIEW INCLUDES DETERMINING THE SIGNATURE FEATURES THAT THE ANTI-SIMULATION TACTIC ATTEMPTS TO DISGUISE AND THE DEGREE TO WHICH THESE FEATURES CAN BE MODIFIED BY PRACTICAL ALTERATIONS OF BOTH THE RV AND THE DECOY. THIS PORTION OF THE RESEARCH WILL A ...
