  1. TAC PROPOSES TO CONDUCT A STUDY TO EVALUATE THE COMPARATIVE EFFECTIVENESS OF VARIOUS FORWARD-LOOKING AUTONOMOUS SENSORS AND ALGORITHMS FOR TLAM-C.

    SBC: The Associated Corp            Topic: N/A

    TAC PROPOSES TO CONDUCT A STUDY TO EVALUATE THE COMPARATIVE EFFECTIVENESS OF VARIOUS FORWARD-LOOKING AUTONOMOUS SENSORS AND ALGORITHMS FOR TLAM-C. THE CURRENT TLAM-C USES A TERRAIN MAPPING RADAR ALTIMETER AND CORRELATES THE SENSED AREA AT KEY WAYPOINTS WITH A STORED DIGITAL REPRESENTATION OF THE TERRAIN AREA AT THE WAYPOINTS TO PROVIDE MID-COURSE AND TERMINAL GUIDANCE CORRECTION TO THE INERTIAL NA ...

  4. Combustion LES Software For Improved Emissions Predictions of High Performance Gas Turbine Combustors

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The development of new military gas turbine combustors that produce low emissions of CO, NOx, and unburned hydrocarbons (UHC) is a difficult challenge for designers. Simulation tools that predict emissions are needed to reduce the cost of producingimproved, low emissions combustor designs. In this SBIR, we propose to continue the development of combustion Large Eddy Simulation (LES) methods that ...

  5. Low Emissions, Affordable Fuel Injector for High Performance Military Gas Turbines

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    In this Phase II SBIR effort, CFD Research Corporation (CFDRC) will continue development of an advanced low emissions fuel injector for military engines that is based on CFDRC's lean direct fuel injector technology. The design produces a unique flamepattern caused by a bifurcated flow pattern, in which the pilot airflow separates from the main airflow and a recirculation zone is created between t ...

  6. A Novel, Microfabricated, Electro-Immuno, Integrated Sensor-Sampler for Bioagent Collection and Detection

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Current technologies for biodetection employ typically large, cumbersome, power-guzzling and expensive devices. Integration of separate sampler and detection units often poses problems. They are not flexible enough for adapting to different threatscenarios, and are not capable of monitoring for a variety of possible agents. CFDRC proposes to develop and demonstrate a Microfabricated, Electro-immun ...

  7. Rapidly Throttleable Oxygen Generation Using Microwave Plasma Decomposition of Rod Fed Perchlorates

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Elimination of high pressure and cryogenic propellant storage and feed systems for undersea vehicle fuel cells is of interest to the Navy. CFDRC proposes the development of a rechargeable oxygen generator based on microwave plasma decomposition ofsolid-state lithium perchlorate. The generator will employ the atmospheric microwave plasma torch technology recently demonstrated by the Plasma Science ...

  8. Advanced CFD Software for Improving Durability of Turbine Inlet Guide Vanes

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    In high F/A military gas turbine combustors such as JSF, localized pockets of carbon monoxide (and perhaps hydrogen) can exit the combustor, causing severe cooling challenges for designers of turbine inlet guide vanes. Instead of cooling the vane, coolingair can actually interact with the hotpath flow to release heat near the vane surface, resulting in catastrophic damage. In this SBIR, we propose ...

  9. Sensorless Control of Linear Motors

    SBC: Electro Standards Laboratory, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Sensorless linear motor control addresses the market need for cost effective and more reliable control of electric motors by removing the mechanical sensors from the feedback control system. The mechanical sensors are the weakest link in the controlsystem in terms of reliability and parts and maintenance costs, especially in demanding environments. For linear motors in particular, the position se ...

  10. Sensorless Control of Linear Motors

    SBC: Electro Standards Laboratory, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Closed-loop control techniques such as those based on inner loop vector current control are well suited to meeting these performance criteria. However, they require flux or armature position knowledge which is usually based on the use of mechanicalfeedback sensors. Mechanical feedback sensors for position or velocity are the most unreliable link in the control system when subjected to harsh cond ...
