  1. Plume Diagnostics for Combustion Stability

    SBC: SIERRA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: T901

    Sierra Engineering Inc. and Purdue University propose to develop a non-intrusive plume instrument capable of detecting and diagnosing combustion instability. This Stability Diagnostic System (SDS) will be designed, assembled, and tested during this effort. The SDS will include a high-speed video camera and multiple photodiode detectors for observing the plume. It will also include a software pa ...

  5. I-RaCM: A Fully Integrated Risk and Lifecycle Cost Model

    SBC: Spaceworks Enterprises, Inc.            Topic: X102

    SpaceWorks Engineering, Inc. (SEI) proposes development of the Integrated Risk and Cost Model I-RaCM, as the innovation to meet the need for integrated cost and risk assessment early in the design of a new system. I-RaCM will integrate a diverse set of new and industry-standard tools used for life cycle cost, operations, reliability modeling, and estimation of technology development costs. The I-R ...

  6. Affordable High Power Density Engine Designs for Personal Air Vehicles

    SBC: GSE, Inc.            Topic: T701

    Next generation General Aviation (GA) Sport Class air vehicles limited to 1200lbs, represent the first opportunity to overhaul the FAA certification process necessary to manufacture affordable aircraft. With propulsion representing over one-third of the direct manufacturing costs of the entire aircraft, dramatic reductions in aircraft engine costs must be achieved by design, economy of scale, and ...

  8. Novel IR Detectors with Response up to 300 microns

    SBC: NDP Optronics LLC.            Topic: S201

    The proposed innovation is the development of a novel Heterojunction Interfacial Workfunction Internal Photoemission (HEIWIP) detector responding up to a cutoff wavelength ~300 microns using the well developed GaAs/AlGaAs system. The detection is by free carrier absorption in doped emitter layers followed by internal photoemission of the carrier over the interfacial workfunction and collection of ...

  9. Ultraviolet AlGaN-based Avalanche Photo Diode Grown over Single Crystal Bulk AlN Substrates

    SBC: Sensor Electronic Technology, Inc.            Topic: E101

    Premature breakdown is a key obstacle in developing AlGaN-based avalanche photo diodes (APD) for ultraviolet (UV) light detection. Novel materials growth techniques, such as Hydride Vapor Phase Epitaxy (HVPE) allows for reduction of dislocation density only to approximately 10^7 cm-2. In order to reduce the number of growth defects and dislocation density in AlGaN-based APDs we will use single cry ...
