  1. Buffet Control of the F-22 Using an Enhanced Distributed Actuation System

    SBC: Active Control eXperts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Unsteady buffet forces excite the vertical tails of aircraft flying at high angles of attack and cause excessive stress and vibration in the tail structure. This results in increased fatigue which ultimately reduces aircraft life. It has been shown by ACX that distributed piezoceramics can significantly reduce the buffet loads on the tail structure of an F/A-18. ACX proposes to develop a simila ...

  2. High Temperature III-V Nitride RF Electronics

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    The III-V nitrides, (Al, In, Ga)N, are promising materials for high temperature, high power and high frequency devices due to the wide bandgaps, high electron saturation velocity and high electronic mobility transistor (HEMT) structures available in this alloy system. These devices would find wide-spread commercial use as power amplifiers in base station transmitters for personal communications ...

  3. Thermal Stability Enhancement of JP-5

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Additive technology has been developed which will extend the operating temperature of common aviation fuels like JP-5. However, the currently available additive packages cannot extend the operating temperature high enough to meet the anticipated requirements of future gas turbine engine designs. In addition, these additive packages usually deteriorate other performance properties of the fu ...

  4. Portable Reflectometer

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The AF requires a portable instrument to measure thermal reflectance signatures from target surfaces. In the field, measurements include 1) total integrated scatter; 2) retro-reflected scatter; 3) angular scatter from normal incidense to 75 degrees off-normal; and 4) parallel and perpendicular polarization components of reflectance. Advanced Fuel Research, Inc., (AFR) previously delivered a benc ...

  5. Infrared Spectrometer on a Chip

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Infrared spectroscopy has ong been recognized as an excellent tool for sending and monitoring chemical species and thermal signatures. There is a need for low-cost devices which can be used in these applications. Advanced Fuel Research Inc (AFR) is presently developing a micro-machined graded interference spectral informtion using transform spectrometry, but which requires an array of detectors ...

  6. A Novel Infrared Tag for Accurately Tracking Multiple Targets in Six Dimensions


    The technique for accurately measuring the positions and orientations of targets in relation to a fixed reference is of fundamental importance to a number of military and commercial applications. For example, in the simulation experiments for testing of installed, integrated avionics, the configuration geometry data for hundreds of test assets, each having six-degree-of-freedom must be automatica ...

  8. Data Management for Imaging Spectrometers

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Imaging spectrometers are a powerful new tool for performing hyperspectral measurements for remote sensing, environmental monitoring, and target detection and characterization applications. The major problem associated with hyperspectral measurements now, however, is not the technology for performing the measurements but rather the technology for analyzing and recording the high data rates genera ...

  9. Advanced Cable Connector Concepts

    SBC: Alden Products Co.            Topic: N/A

    Existing materials used for marine cable connectors each have drawbacks in terms of cost or performance. Alden Products Company proposes a program to develop a family of cable connectors and adapters that lower the present cost/performance barrier in two ways; through the use of alternative materials and through new manufacturing methods using the existing materials. The main goals of P ...

  10. Engineering Development of Cryogenic Hypercapacitors for Energy Storage

    SBC: Cryo Energy Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Compact, cost-effective energy storage is important for defense installations, critical facilities, and industry in order to have assured, uninterruptible power sources. Power quality and power conditioning systems play a vital role in enhancing productivity in an era where microprocessor-controlled systems are vulnerable to momentary power outages. Capacitive energy storage systems offer an att ...
