  5. Braided Composite Technologies for Rotorcraft Structures

    SBC: A & P TECHNOLOGY            Topic: A209

    The proposed program will focus on the development of a new generation of advanced technology for rotorcraft transmission systems. This program will evaluate the viability of integrating gears with composite shafts. The aim of this work is to reduce overall weight and improve vibration characteristics. Two concepts have been identified and will be further researched. The first design includes c ...

  6. Fast Responding Pressure-Sensitive Paint for Large-Scale Wind Tunnel Testing

    SBC: Innovative Scientific Solutions, Inc.            Topic: A209

    The proposed work focuses on implementing fast-response pressure-sensitive paint for measurements of unsteady pressure in rotorcraft applications. Significant rotorcraft problems such as dynamic stall, rotor blade loads in forward flight, and blade-vortex interaction all have significant unsteady pressure oscillations that must be resolved in order to understand the underlying physics. Installatio ...

  7. Tunable Interior Rotorcraft Noise Control

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: A209

    CRG has recently developed a new class of shape memory polymers (SMP) that are electrically activated, as opposed to the more mature thermally activated SMPs. Electrically activated shape memory polymers (EASMP) open a new design space of unexplored functionality beyond what has been considered for thermally activated materials. This project will combine the advantages of EASMP with the design of ...

  8. Skin Friction and Pressure Measurements in Supersonic Inlets

    SBC: Innovative Scientific Solutions, Inc.            Topic: A210

    Supersonic propulsion systems include internal ducts, and therefore, the flow often includes shock waves, shear layers, vortices, and separated flows. Passive flow control devices such as micro-vortex generators and micro-ramps have been proposed to improve vehicle performance. The ability to measure surface quantities such as skin friction and unsteady pressure on the inlet model would provide in ...

  9. Simultaneous Skin Friction and Pressure Sensitive Paint

    SBC: Innovative Scientific Solutions, Inc.            Topic: A401

    Currently, the contribution of skin friction to the total drag of a wind tunnel model is estimated by comparing measurements of the total drag to the integrated pressure drag. While this yields an estimate for the average skin friction, the distribution of the skin friction cannot be determined from such measurements. The distribution of skin friction and pressure is available from computational f ...

  10. High Efficiency Switching Power amplifier for Earth Radar Observation System (HESPEROS)

    SBC: Nu Waves Ltd.            Topic: S102

    To meet multiple mission needs with limited resources, NASA's Science Mission Directorate (SMD) is pursuing smaller and more affordable spacecraft. The reduction of size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C) of the radio frequency (RF) components required for a particular mission area allows the instrumentation package to be made more compact. In meeting the SWaP-C objectives, RF components will ...
