  2. Active, Adaptive Resonant Tuned Mass Systems for Space Applications


    We propose to build upon prior experience to develop hardware customized to a selected spacecraft application. This hardware would employ an adaptive mechanical resonance as a vibration control element. Two related uses of such a device are described; the tuned vibration absorber and the tuned mass damper. Hood Technology Corporation has built and tested such devices for other applications. We ...

  3. Advanced Electro-Optical Sensor Development and Test

    SBC: Lasen Inc            Topic: N/A

    The proposed research will provide a design of a laser radar which uses frequency agile laser technology in the spectral region from 1.5 um to 4.0 um. This project will use direct diode pumped optical parametric oscillator laser (OPOL) to provide mid-infrared laser radiation. Optical parametric amplifier laser (OPAL) technology will be used to amplify and frequency up-shift the mid-infrared rad ...

  4. Advanced Laser Diagnostics for Quantitative Species Measurements in Turbulent Combustion

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Jet engines and other turbine combustors operate at high pressures, with turbulence length and time scales on the order of 100 um and 100 us. Accurate experimental characterization of turbulent reacting flows is critical for validating computational fluid dynamics and chemistry codes used in the design of advanced turbine combustors. Laser-based diagnostics are typically used to characterize vel ...

  5. Advanced Techniques for Arena Testing & Image Motion Modeling/Reconstruction

    SBC: OBSERVERA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    For this Phase I effort, Observera, Inc. proposes to develop a model based approach for deriving the parameters of an airborne imaging unit from the images collected during its flight. In order to concentrate Phase I efforts on feasibility and on the difficult problems of (1) developing the sensor model, (2) developing its associated error model, and (3) deriving an approach to correct an initial ...

  6. Advanced Turbopump High Stage Loading, Enhanced Efficiency, and Reduced Part Count

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Achieving by the year 2010 a significant reduction in part count, cost, size and weight of turbopumps, and improving their reliability and efficiency is accomplished with a series of innovative single stage high head (150,000-200,000 ft) demonstrator pumps which identify critical technological questions, validate design principles and tools, and set the path to realize the IHPRPT Phase II and III ...

  7. Adv Tech for Minimization of Deflagration to Detonation Transition Distance in PDE Applications

    SBC: Adroit Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Adroit Systems Inc. (ASI) proposes to develop an innovative concept which reduces the required volume of predetonator mixture in pulse detonation engines (PDEs). The propulsive efficiency of the PDE hinges on the ability to quickly initiate a detonation in a fuel/air mixture. Since most fuel/air mixtures are difficult to detonate, an easily detonable predetonator mixture is typically ...

  8. A Gallium Arsenide Synchronous Rectified-based Low Voltage Power Converter for High Radiation Environments

    SBC: Virginia Power Technologies            Topic: N/A

    Virginia Power Technologies (VPT) purposes a high-efficiency, low voltage, spacecraft power converter using Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) synchronous rectifiers. High efficiency at low output voltages cannot be achieved with Schottky rectifiers because of their fixed voltage drop. Use of synchronous rectifiers can improve the efficiency. However, there is a limited availability of radiation-hardened ...

  9. Analysis and Improvement of Trivalent Chromium Conversion Coatings for Aluminum Alloys

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    The trend toward replacement of highly toxic chemicals with less hazardous alternatives has created the demand for replacement of chromate conversion coatings for corrosion protection of aluminum alloys. Aluminum alloys are the predominate structural material used in aircraft because of their high strength-to-weight ratios, affordability and processability. Aluminum is subject to catastrophic fail ...

  10. Anechoic Chamber Simulation, Optimization and Synthesis Software Program

    SBC: Voss Scientific, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Commercial and military uses of RF/microwave anechoic chambers to conduct electromagnetic measurements of one type or another has increased considerably in recent years. unfortunately anechoic chambers can be very expensive to build ($0.5M for small chambers, to many $M for large chambers), and operate = man weeks of effort are often required to configure and run a chamber for a specific test. C ...
