  1. Prediction and Measurement of the Carbon Build-Up in Film-Cooled Rocket Engines

    SBC: SIERRA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF15AT21

    ABSTRACT: Sierra Engineering Inc. (Sierra) believes that existing chemical kinetic models can be efficiently incorporated into commercial CFD codes to predict the mixing, pyrolysis, soot formation and carbon deposition within film cooled rocket engines. During this Phase I STTR effort we will demonstrate that this analysis capability is practical and that we can generate appropriate model validati ...

  2. Metal Vapor Ionospheric Control System (MVICS)

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT22

    ABSTRACT: Spectral Sciences, Inc. and Sandia National Laboratories propose a Metal Vapor Ionospheric Control System (MVICS) for on-demand turbulence suppression and control of ionospheric RF propagation. The system uses a lightweight, throttleable directional mechanism for controlled production and dispersal of artificial plasma into the space environment. MVICS relies on three innovations: a nove ...

  6. Development of the Hypersonic Environment- Sensor EO/IR Effects Software (HySEES)

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT40

    ABSTRACT: Electro-optic/infrared (EO/IR) sensors are key to the mission success of future hypersonic vehicles. Although EO/IR sensors have been extensively used for subsonic flight regimes, the hypersonic flight regime creates new conditions and complexities with significant impact on optical sensors. These complexities include turbulent, high temperature gas that is in Non-Local Thermodynamic Equ ...

  8. Transparent Non-Cubic Ceramics Using Magnetic Fields to Control Microstructural Orientation

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: AF14AT26

    ABSTRACT: This effort is a close collaboration between RMD and Alfred University. Our goal is to develop a process for producing optical ceramics with properties approaching or exceeding single crystals. Ceramic processing can provide enhanced performance, lower cost, higher yield, relaxed constraints on size and shape, and materials that are difficult or impossible to grow as crystals. We will ...
