  1. Multi-Scale Simulation Framework for Heterogeneous Energetic Materials

    SBC: Streamline Numerics, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT28

    ABSTRACT: Designing propulsion devices and munitions for precise operational performance demands control and manipulation of energy released by explosive materials. It is well recognized that the initiation of energetic materials in explosives applications depends sensitively on hot-spots that originate from various heterogeneities at the meso (particle)-scale such as voids, defects, dislocations ...

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

    SBC: Spiritech Advanced Products, Inc.            Topic: AF073050

    ABSTRACT: The current state-of-the-art for heat exchanger (HEX) analysis and design relies on analytical approaches which are difficult to scale and highly empirical, thus making the ability to optimize advanced heat transfer devices improbable without comprehensive characterization efforts. The design standard for predicting heat exchanger performance is a set of empirical data developed more th ...

  3. ITO Repair on Transparencies

    SBC: ECLIPSE ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF141153

    ABSTRACT:There is a critical need for rapid flight line repair of scratches in Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) -coated transparencies.While ITO meets current requirements for conductivity and transparency, it is easily damaged and has deposition techniques that are incompatible with depot conditions.Current on-site repair of minor defects involve the application of a flexible conductive patch material with ...

  4. Combined Extinction/Fluorescence Absorption Diagnostics for Sprays

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: 9030163R

    This Phase II project will continue the prototype development of a pharmaceutical spray quality audit system. The spray quality audit system will estimate the planar mass distribution, mass flux, and drop size of pharmaceutical sprays that are used in functional coating applications and inhalers. A prototype tomography system will be designed and fabricated and evaluated using various fluorophore.

  5. Large-Area, High-Uniformity Photodiodes for Infrared Trap Detectors

    SBC: Amethyst Research Incorporated            Topic: 9020168R

    methyst Research Inc. will design, fabricate and test a high uniformity, large area, low noise infrared trap-detector detector for the 1- 4.5 μm wavelength range. This state of the art detector will have a large area (e.g., 1-1.8 cm diameter active area) with a spatial variability of internal quantum efficiency of less than 0.1 % between 1 μm and 4.5 μm. In addition, the internal quantum effici ...

  6. Non-Destructive Inspection Data Capture

    SBC: ANAUTICS, INC.            Topic: AF151162

    ABSTRACT: An organizational culture that promotes problem solving is necessary for success in any organization. Nondestructive Inspection (NDI) is the inspection of a structure or component in any manner that will not impair its future usefulness. The purpose of the inspection may be to detect flaws, measure geometric characteristics, determine material structure or composition, or it may characte ...

  7. Advanced Ram Air Turbine Auxiliary Power Unit for High Altitude Long Endurance Aircraft

    SBC: Advanced Technologies Group, Inc.            Topic: AF151056

    ABSTRACT: ATGI will develop an air driven generator based on previous Ram Air Turbine success. The air driven generator will provide auxiliary power at 10kw in a lightweight package that will be mounted externally and eventually integrated into the fuselage. ATGI has received a letter of support from a large unmanned aircraft manufacturer. During phase I proof of concept hardware will be teste ...

  8. Differential Characterization of Atmospheric Turbulence System (DCATS)

    SBC: Michigan Aerospace Corporation            Topic: AF141195

    ABSTRACT: Michigan Aerospace Corporation (MAC) and Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) propose to design an airborne system for characterizing long range profiles of the state of optical turbulence in the atmosphere. This system will exploit GTRIs differential image motion (DIM) LIDAR technique for measuring profiles of the refractive index structure characteristic as well as scintillation ana ...
