  5. Ultra High Repetition Rate Multi-Parameter Imaging Diagnostics for Reacting Flows

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: AF11BT16

    ABSTRACT: Study of non-stationary phenomena in turbulent combusting flows requires spatial measurements of a set of parameters at kHz rates. Ideally these parameters would include the velocity , temperature, and a relevant species concentration. In response to this need, ORBITEC and the University of Wisconsin-Madison propose to develop a technique to measure velocity, temperature, and OH conce ...

  9. Dual S&C-Band Telemetry Transmitter System for Missile Testing

    SBC: Quasonix, LLC            Topic: MDA11T004

    Reductions and reallocations of telemetry wireless bandwidth have prompted the need for DoD agencies to adapt to operation in more restricted and less desirable frequency spectrum. Telemetering systems must evolve to address these frequency allocation changes, while retaining operational characteristics that are vital to MDA mission success. The design and implementation of high performance transm ...
