  2. Novel Cathodes for High Capacity Thermal Battery

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A14009

    The current state of the art thermal battery technologies will not be able to meet future requirements that call for higher power and capacity with a smaller footprint. The principal avenue for increasing the capacity of thermal battery is to identify and develop new electrode materials that provide higher specific capacity and power performance. The overall objective of the proposed effort is to ...

  3. Linear Efficient Broadband Transmitter Architecture at mm-wave frequencies

    SBC: Digital Analog Integration, Inc.            Topic: A17027

    There is an ever-increasing demand on low-cost high-throughput wireless front-ends. Such high-throughput front-ends support broadband data transmission (multi-Gbit/s) for a wide variety of sensors and unmanned platforms in situational awareness, monitoring, and reconnaissance. Their wideband nature also supports the deployment of broadband communication/radar combo-systems, as well as numerous eme ...

  6. Development and Validation of a Computational Tool for Missile Flight Through Rain

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N182110

    The survivability of tactical missiles through adverse weather is difficult to predict, because of the dependency on many variables and the unpredictable nature of weather. This proposal is focused on an effort to develop and test a physics-based methodology for the prediction of the droplet distortion and demise in the flow field around missiles in supersonic flight. Our technical approach of Pha ...

  7. Computational Analysis of Missile Flight Through Rain

    SBC: Integration Innovation, Inc.            Topic: N182110

    The current state of weather requirements definition for tactical missiles is outdated providing operational decision makers little confidence in the performance of missiles in any environment other than blue-sky. The challenge is understanding detailed physics features like drop shape change through a shock, and then being able to apply those at the system level for vehicle performance assessment ...

  9. Time-accurate and Fast-running Model for Damaged Structures Aeroelastic Vulnerability Assessment

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF182026

    An efficient and robust fluid modal method is proposed to reduce the fully-coupled aeroelasticity problem of threat-damaged flight surfaces to a second order multi-degrees-of-freedom (DOFs) system (as low as 2) while maintaining dominant nonlinearity and effects of all DOFs desired in the model. The proposed method provides a time-accurate, fast-running solution for describing the aeroelastic resp ...

  10. Stable, Programmable, Solid State Solar Simulator for Long Duration Testing

    SBC: MicroLink Devices            Topic: AF182027

    Testing of materials and systems for satellites requires compact, stable and cost-effective solar simulators that accurately present the full AM0 spectrum, which spans a broad wavelength range from 200-2500 nm. Solar simulators typically use xenon or deuterium gas-discharge lamps, which can provide substantial power output in the ultraviolet (UV) and visible spectral ranges. Incandescent lamps are ...
