  1. Creating Spatial Disorientation in Flight Simulation

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: 122FA1

    Training in the symptoms of Spatial Disorientation (SD) has shown to be valuable in aiding pilots to recognize its onset and provide a means for mitigating its effects, but such demonstrations have traditionally been associated with specialized equipment and devices. Since the vast majority of pilots for the commercial aviation jet fleet are trained (or recertified) on 6-degree-of-freedom (DOF) h ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  5. Advanced Aerodynamic Modules for Comprehensive Rotorcraft Analyses

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: A08017

    Fast, accurate computational models of rotorcraft aerodynamics and dynamics are critical for analysis and design. The strong coupling between aerodynamics and dynamics characteristic of rotary-wing aircraft greatly complicates the task of comprehensive rotorcraft analyses aspiring to this goal. Over the past twenty-five years, the core focus of Continuum Dynamics, Inc., (CDI), has been to develo ...

  7. Vehicle Payload Detection at Low Speeds through We

    SBC: Wolf Technical Services Inc            Topic: A09098

    A design concept is developed for a transportable weigh-in-motion sensor with capability to weight individual wheels, axles and the gross weight of passenger-type vehicles moving along a roadway at speeds from 1 to 30 mph. The sensor will sense weight shift associated with vehicle maneuvers and make a correction to each wheel weight. The system installation can be permanent or temporary, and can ...

  8. Development and Validation of Tin-Whisker Growth Model and Accelerated Testing

    SBC: ECI TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: OSD08M04

    The essential step in the manufacturing of electronics systems involves soldering components to printed wiring boards. Copper and other metal leads to be soldered must be protected from oxidation during storage. Preffered protective coating for over fifty years was tin-lead solder. With passage of RoHS Directive that increased pressure to remore lead from electronics assemblies, new coating must b ...

  10. Foil-Air Bearings for Small Gas Turbine Engines


    As new applications arise for small gas turbine engines, the need to advance engine component technologies becomes essential, since they are required to run faster, hotter, and longer. Particularly critical in this regard are the shaft bearings. Since they operate without lubricant, air foil bearings have been identified as viable replacements to conventional liquid lubricated bearings. An adva ...
