  1. Phased Array Ultrasonic Inspection of Fastener Holes in Thick Multiple-Layer Structures

    SBC: ACOUSTIC IDEAS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Budgetary constraints on defense spending have highlighted the importance ofprograms aimed at extending the service life of aging aircraft. Nondestructiveinspection is a key component of such programs. One important capabilityis the detection of cracking and corrosion around fastener holes. Phased arrayultrasonics offer a novel and powerful solution. They can steer an ultrasonic beamat various ang ...

  2. Compliant Brush Shroud Casing Development for Aircraft Engine Compressors

    SBC: ADVANCED COMPONENTS & MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed Phase II program will optimize the design and manufacturing process of a compliant brush shroud casing. Recent tests at Wright Laboratories with staged brush seals have demonstrated significantly increased blade to shroud rub tolerance of acompliant casing. Phase I of the program is expected to demonstrate the feasibility of two innovative brush shroud designs with lower cost and we ...

  4. Combinatorial Synthesis and Screening of Sensing Nanomaterial for Warfare Agents

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

    The overall goal of the proposed program is to provide military personnel with a hand-held analyzer capable of detecting chemical and biological agents, as well as toxic industrial chemicals. This will be accomplished through the use of a newnanocomposite material (metal-doped sol-gel) that enhances analyte specific Raman signals sufficiently to allow identifying and quantifying agents at relevan ...

  5. Fuel State and Additive Analyzer

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

    Fuels in high altitude and latitude aircraft (e.g., the U-2) must have freezing point temperatures well below -60 ¿C, and must maintain flow to similar temperatures (e.g., viscosity of ~ 6 cSt). JPTS, a high purity kerosene based fuel has the requiredproperties, but costs ~ 3 times more than standard jet fuels, such as JP-8 (military grade) or Jet A (commercial). The need for JPTS also presents ...

  6. Crested Tunnel Barriers for Fast, High Density, Nonvolatile Memory Devices

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

    Crested multi-layer tunnel barriers have been proposed, which offer a revolutionary solution to overcome density to speed trade-offs characteristic of present data storage technologies. Practical implementation of the proposed technology will involve useof thin film materials which are readily manufacturable and CMOS-compatible. A critical need exists for experimental verification of the theoret ...

  7. Control Sensor for Turbine Engine Augmentor Rumble and Screech

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

    During aircraft turbine engine operation, augmentor (afterburner) operation is often associated with combustion instabilities (oscillations) that can be potentially detrimental to the turbine engine if the resonant amplitude levels are excessive.Oscillation in the frequency range of 50-100 Hz is commonly called

  9. High Efficiency 10K Cryocooler for Space Application

    SBC: Advanced Mechanical Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A compact, reliable, efficient and inexpensive crycooler requiring less than 1kW of power for 2W of colling at 10K will be developed and demonstrated. This performance is at least twice as efficient as the best current state-of-the-art for smalllow-temperature crycoolers. The proposed technical approach, whose feasibility has been investigated and confirmed in Phase I of this project, is to appl ...

  10. Novel Antireflective Coating to Improve Microelectronic Processings

    SBC: AST PRODUCTS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    One of the primary processes used for device patterning in the electronics industry is deep ultaviolet photolithography. However, the highly reflective substrates require reduction of this reflectivity to minimize standing waves and to maintain tightdimensional control. Most of te industry uses anti-reflective coatings (ARCs) which are applied using the spin coating technique. Unfortunately, spi ...
