  2. X-Band Digital Transmit Module for DBF Transmit/Receive Array

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: AF02197

    An X-band digital transmit module will be developed that is suitable for phased-array radar and communications applications. This proposed Phase II SBIR will combine our Phase-I X-band transmit module design with a DBF receiver that Applied Radar is developing through separate (non-SBIR) funding from AFRL. In addition, we will investigate the development of a synthesizer to provide a common LO sig ...

  7. Advanced Cooling Techniques for Hydrocarbon Liquid Rocket Engine Components

    SBC: Software And Engineering Associates, Inc.            Topic: OSD03009

    Liquid rocket engines may be run for repeatedly over extended periods of time, requiring active cooling. An efficient means of cooling LRE nozzles involves using the liquid fuel or oxidizer itself to provide the cooling, often referred to as regenerative cooling. SEA's liquid rocket combustion chamber and nozzle design code, TDK, can predict the heat transfer to the surface of the nozzle as a fu ...

  8. Advanced Injector Designs for Hydrocarbon Liquid Rocket Engine Components

    SBC: SIERRA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: OSD03010

    Combustion instability is one of the greatest development risks for liquid propellant engines. In developing a stable injector design, the risks arise from a variety of sources - limited modeling capabilities, poor scalability and the high cost of appropriate component test facilities. Sierra Engineering Inc. believes that much of the empirical data on the injection element's driving characteris ...
