  1. Advanced Chip Integration for Enhanced Arrays

    SBC: INDIANA INTEGRATED CIRCUITS LLC            Topic: AF131098

    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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  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. 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 ...

  8. Fretting Wear Elimination for Titanium Components

    SBC: IBC Materials & Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF083072

    The development of the F-35 Lift Fan has revealed the possibility of fretting between the fan input shaft bearing OD surface and the titanium bearing supports in the Lift Fan gearbox housing.  A steel insert is currently used to provide protection against fretting of the gearbox housing.  In order to provide an effective solution and reduce the overall weight of the F-35, IBC Materials and Techn ...

  9. Design Tools for Combustion Stability

    SBC: In Space, L.L.C.            Topic: AF083112

    The combination of complex physics and extremely severe combustor environments presents a formidable challenge to engineers who must ensure that high-pressure, high-performance rocket engines are stable from combustion instabilities.  We propose here an improved methodology for predicting the combustion stability of oxidizer-rich staged-combustion engines.   The methodology integrates high-fide ...
