  1. Compact, High Torque, Hinge Actuator for Next-Generation Thin-Wing Aircraft Flight Control

    SBC: Magnetic Power Motion            Topic: AF131168

    ABSTRACT: The Air Force is seeking a compact, high torque, rotary EMA technology capable of controlling flight control surfaces directly at the hinge line in the next generation of thin-wing aircraft. Proposed for this application is an advanced EMA technology based on an axial flux, permanent-magnet machine structure. The unique shape of this device enables efficient integration into the wing ...

  2. Dynamic Time and Frequency Domain Modeling of Aircraft Power System with Electrical Accumulator Units (EAU)

    SBC: PC Krause And Associates, Inc.            Topic: OSD12EP5

    The movement to more-electric architectures during the past decade in military and commercial airborne systems continues to increase the complexity of designing and specifying the electrical power system. The addition of numerous high-power electric loads has drastically altered the dynamics of power flow on the electrical bus. Many of these loads often exhibit peak-to-average power ratios in ex ...

  3. Frequency Domain-based Electrical Accumulator Unit (EAU)

    SBC: PC Krause And Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF131172

    ABSTRACT: The move towards more-electric aircraft continues to increase the complexity of electrical power systems (EPS) on modern airborne platforms. In addition to ever expanding peak and regenerative power demands, several of the loads can introduce very high rates of current change (dI/dt) within the EPS, all of which implies significant spectral power across a wide range of frequencies. Re ...

  4. Protective Technologies and Installation/Implementation Methods for Undersea Instrumentation

    SBC: SKY SIGHT TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: N092099

    The proposed project will create an innovative Trawl Resistant Tether System to protect vertically suspended, bottom-tethered types of ocean bottom sensor installations from the vulnerabilities of trawl rig damage. It uses innovative geometry and fabrication techniques that do not impact the sensor performance in any way. The proposed system addresses two specific vulnerabilities: damage to the to ...

  5. Computational Modeling of Coupled Acoustic and Combustion Phenomena Inherent to Gas Turbine Engines

    SBC: Flow Modeling and Simulation            Topic: AF131181

    ABSTRACT: Flow Modeling and Simulation, LLC (FMS), proposes to develop a computational software tool, herein designated AUG3D, that is intended to provide physics-based, multi-level, validated computational simulations of turbine engine component flow fields, particularly those associated with thrust augmentors, i.e., afterburners. This tool will be ideally suited for closely integrating physica ...

  6. Advanced Chip Integration for Enhanced Arrays


    ABSTRACT: Improvements such as increased array size and better non-uniformity correction have been made to resistive emitter arrays fabricated on silicon (Si). There exist additonal wavelengths of interest whose emitter devices require fabrication in other materials, such as gallium arsenide (GaAs). For both Si and GaAs substrate materials, attempts to"tile"small arrays into larger ones for reaso ...

  7. Intelligent Power Management Module for Autonomous Power Generator Operation

    SBC: PC Krause And Associates, Inc.            Topic: OSD12EP4

    The US Army and Marines rely significantly on fossil-fuel based tactical power generation to provide electrical energy to deployed troops in small camps and forward operation bases. These generators are sized to support the expected maximum power but are often operated far below rated power due to the dynamic nature of electrical loads. On average, the generators are loaded less than 50% of the ...

  8. Optimized Corrosion Resistant Bearing and Gear Steel Thermal Processing

    SBC: IBC Materials & Technologies, LLC            Topic: N092117

    Pyrowear® 675 is noted as a high performance bearing material used in turbine engine and other higher temperature applications. The mechanical properties and stability necessary for these applications is achieved via carburizing by design. The carbides that form to provide the hot hardness and desired mechanical properties for bearing service are at the expense of corrosion resistance. As the car ...

  9. Advanced Propulsion and Power Concepts for Large Size Class Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)

    SBC: ENGINE RESEARCH ASSOCIATES INC            Topic: AF131160

    ABSTRACT: Desired tactical requirements for unmanned aerial systems (UASs) exceed current capabilities for performance, reliability, maintainability, cost and supportability. Mission requirements such as extended endurance, increased power for auxiliary/sensor systems, and low altitude, low speed maneuverability are becoming paramount, specifically, in the 10,000 lb class of vehicles. These desi ...

  10. JP-8 Fuel Effects on High Pressure Common Rail Pumps

    SBC: ANALYTICAL ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: A08128

    Lack of fuel lubrication performance associated with JP-8 in modern diesel engines equipped with High Pressure Common Rail fuel systems can lead to premature performance loss or field failure. As engines in the Army fleet are replaced with modern engines, provisions for JP-8 fuel compatibility will need to be addressed by engine OEM’s. Analytical Engineering, Inc. proposes to partner with Cumm ...
