  2. Advanced Cooling Techniques for Hydrocarbon Liquid Rocket Engine Components

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Developing new techniques for combustion chamber cooling are critical to increasing engine life to 60 missions or greater. Concepts NREC will explore several chamber cooling options that minimize or eliminate coking increasing engine chamber life withoutsacrificing performance or adding cost. The proposed Phase I study will investigate methane as the hydrocarbon propellant for cooling along with ...

  3. Advanced Detection of Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs)

    SBC: QuantaSpec Inc.            Topic: AF06113

    Standoff detecctors are required to detect IEDs. These detectors are needed to save the lives of american soldiers. QuantaSpec has developed patent pending methods for long-range, sensitive, and selective standoff detection of explosives. These methods have already demonstrated sensitive remote detection of explosive vapors under previous efforts. QuantaSpec's multidisciplinary team will demon ...

  8. ANALYSIS OF BALLISTIC RANGE DATA USING ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

    SBC: Arrow Tech Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE ANALYSIS OF AEROBALLISTIC RANGE DATA IS A TEDIOUS AND TECHNICALLY CHALLENGING TASK. THE SOPHISTICATED ANALYSIS PROCEDURES AND REQUIRED SOFTWARE (COMPUTER PROGRAMS) HAVE BEEN REFINED EXTENSIVELY DURING THE PAST FIFTEEN TO TWENTY YEARS WITH THE ADDITION OF THE SIX-DEGREE-OF-FREEDOM CODES EMPLOYING THE MAXIMUM LIKELIHOOD METHOD. THE REQUIRED PROFICIENCY TAKES BETWEEN THREE AND FIVE YEARS UNDER TH ...
