  1. An Active Smart Material System for Buffet Load Alleviation

    SBC: Active Control eXperts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed effort investigates the use of smart materials (such as strain actuators and sensors) and modern control theory to suppress unsteady buffet loads encountered by vertical tail aircraft such as the F/A-18. The active smart material system proposed has distinct advantages over traditional passive damping treatments and active articulated control surface techniques. This innovative smart ...

  2. Buffet Control of the F-22 Using an Enhanced Distributed Actuation System

    SBC: Active Control eXperts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Unsteady buffet forces excite the vertical tails of aircraft flying at high angles of attack and cause excessive stress and vibration in the tail structure. This results in increased fatigue which ultimately reduces aircraft life. It has been shown by ACX that distributed piezoceramics can significantly reduce the buffet loads on the tail structure of an F/A-18. ACX proposes to develop a simila ...

  3. 500 Watt Solar AMTEC Power System for Small Spacecraft

    SBC: ADVANCED MODULAR POWER SYSTEMS            Topic: N/A

    The small spacecraft power system proposed in this program provides significant advantages over state-of-the-art systems including: (1) use of a high efficiency (25%-35%) AMTEC, static power conversion system, (2) reduced planform area, and vulnerability, (3) mass efficient phase change material for thermal energy storage during solar eclipse periods, (4) high reliability with no vibration, (5) si ...

  4. Innovative AMTEC Auxilliary Electric Power Supply

    SBC: ADVANCED MODULAR POWER SYSTEMS            Topic: N/A

    The Alkali Metal Thermal to Electric Converter (AMTEC) technology is ideal for auxiliary electric power supplies (AEPS) that must operate over a broad range of temperatures, fuel sources, power levels, and operational specifications. The simplicity, efficiency and modularity, as well as the high heat rejection temperature, of this technology allow it fill applications as varied as light-weight ba ...

  6. Using Simulation/Animation Modeling Techniques to Optimize the ROCC/SOCC Computer communications System

    SBC: Advanced Visual Data, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Joint Surveillance System Computer-Communications System (C-CS) provides mission-critical support to Region Operations Control Centers (ROCCs), Sector Operations Control Centers (SOCCs), and North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD). New mission requirements (drug interdiction) and new sensor/system developments exceed the scope of the original design and mission of the C-CS. As a resu ...

  7. Optimal Visualization of Multispectral and Multi-sensor Environmental Satellite Data

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The development of an Air Force Repair Tracking System (AF-RTS) is proposed for electronic circuit cards. AF-RTS will consist of an integration of several commercially available products as well as a DOD endorsed IEEE database standard (P1239) for representing maintenance and repair data. The database will be hosted on an OTS RDBMS that is compatible with the internet world wide web. The human- ...

  9. CONTROLLED EMITTANCE MATERIAL FOR IR SIGNATURE SUPPRESSION APPLICATIONS

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SKIN COATINGS FOR IR SIGNATURE SUPPRESSION REQUIRE MORE THAN SIMPLE EMISSIVITY CONTROL. CONTROL OF THE DIRECTIONAL DISTRIBUTION OF EMITTED/REFLECTED RADIATION AND ACTIVE HEATING OR COOLING ARE ALSO NECESSARY. THE RADIANCE FROM THE OBJECT NEEDS TO APPROXIMATE THE RADIANCE FROM THE BACKGROUND OVER A BROAD RANGE OF VIEWING ANGLES. THIS REQUIRES A COMPLICATED BIDIRECTIONAL REFLECTANCE DISTRIBUTION FUN ...

  10. MICROWAVE ANALOG TO DIGITAL CONVERTER USING PARALLEL OPTICAL SAMPLING

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    WE PROPOSE TO DEMONSTRATE AN OPTICAL ANALOG-TO-DIGITAL CONVERTER FOR MICROWAVE ANALOG SIGNALS WHICH UTILIZES A SINGLE ELECTROOPTIC BROADBAND VELOCITY MATCHED TRAVELLING WAVE MODULATOR BUT WITH MULTIPLE PULSED OPTICAL BEAMS TO SAMPLE THE SIGNAL AND MULTIPLE STANDARD ELECTRONIC A/D'S TO ACCOMPLISH THE CONVERSION IN PARALLEL. THE DIGITAL OUTPUT WORDS APPEAR ON MULTIPLE SETS OF LINES APPROPRIATE FOR A ...
