  1. Low Temperature Limits for Gas Turbine Engine Oils

    SBC: ADIABATICS INCORPORATED            Topic: AF071106

    Viscosity and low temperature lubricant characteristics determine turbine engine starting capability, and lubricant motion with respect to the contact surfaces at low ambient temperature. Such low ambient temperatures influence the oil viscosity and also the variation of its curve shape versus the temperature. According to the aforementioned research method, the requirements for accuracy and rel ...

  2. Experimental Characterization of Particle Dynamics Within Solid Rocket Motors

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: AF081067

    This Phase I project will evaluate the feasibility of high-speed microscopic imaging and statistical correlation velocimetry to determine the particle size and velocity in solid rocket motors. Statistical correlation velocimetry relies on obtaining an ensemble of high-speed videos of turbulent flows (both reacting and non-reacting). These videos are analyzed using a statistical correlation techn ...

  3. Integrated Power Generation for Small Unmanned Vehicles

    SBC: Engine Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: OSD08UM5

    This program will improve the size, weight and efficiency of power generators by integrating a lightweight, high efficiency alternator with a quiet, fuel efficient and high power density heavy fuel engine. It will be capable of meeting DoD needs for reliable and efficient propulsion and power systems for unmanned aircraft, ground and maritime systems. The electrical power source will use a propr ...

  4. Variable Thrust, Multiple Start Hybrid Motor Solutions for Missile and Space Applications

    SBC: IN SPACE, L.L.C.            Topic: OSD08PR3

    Energy management in missile systems can provide substantial performance advantages, especially for modern missiles capable of all-aspect engagements. Maximum flexibility is offered by a system that can be throttled, shut off entirely and restarted when needed. The proposed project aims to achieve efficient combustion during throttling and restart capability without the need for a separate ignit ...

  5. Modeling and Simulation of the Stability of ORSC Main Combustion Chambers

    SBC: IN SPACE, L.L.C.            Topic: AF06T005

    The potential for combustion instability has historically been a hindrance in developing rocket engines, and nearly always represents the major technical risk in engine developments. This proposal addresses innovative approaches toward prediction of liquid rocket engine combustion instability, as well as innovations in full-scale engine stability verification. Specific objectives are to demonstrat ...

    SBC: INNOVATIVE ENERGY SOLUTION            Topic: AF081057

    Despite the importance of jet fighter afterburner designs, there exists very little data on the majority of the individual components of jet fuel, especially JP-8, to enable development of a detailed kinetic mechanism. Although the Multi University Research Initiative program has been initiated for that purpose, it is oriented for the main engine combustor where the process is different from afte ...

  7. Advanced Heat Exchanger (HEX) Scaling Methodologies for High-Performance Aircraft

    SBC: P C KRAUSE AND ASSOCIATES INC            Topic: AF073050

    The well-known consequence of high-performance, low-observable, more-electric strike aircraft is the increased thermal loading that can ultimately threaten mission-critical components. The ability to efficiently transport the resulting waste energy to onboard coolants is now understood to be an airframe-level design point that should be considered with a priority approaching that of thrust, range ...

  8. Design, Analysis, and Optimization Environment for Directed Energy Systems

    SBC: P C KRAUSE AND ASSOCIATES INC            Topic: AF071004

    The primary objective of the proposed work is to develop a directed energy system analysis and design environment. This analysis and design environment will be based upon Distributed Heterogeneous Simulation (DHS) and Distributed Heterogeneous Optimization (DHO) technology. DHS allows the interconnection of models developed in different simulation languages running on different computing platfor ...

  9. Optimal Design and Prototype Development of Aircraft Generators with Increased Power Density

    SBC: P C KRAUSE AND ASSOCIATES INC            Topic: AF071188

    The primary objective of the proposed work is to investigate design techniques to improve torque density, power density, and efficiency in wound-rotor synchronous machines. The underlying principle of the proposed design technique is to alter the flux paths in the machine to increase torque production. This will be achieved through optimally altering the stator tooth geometry, rotor tooth geomet ...

  10. Care and Monitoring Evacuation Litter (CAMEL)

    SBC: TECHSHOT, INC.            Topic: AF073014

    This proposal contains SHOT’s R&D concepts for a “Rapidly Configurable Modular Litter System for use in Aeromedical Transport.” The Air Force is currently using the old pole and canvas style litter from pre WWII for aeromedical evacuation. A variety of medical treatment equipment is haphazardly piled on, hanging from, or setting around the litter during transport. SHOT’s Care And Monito ...
