  1. 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 ...

  2. Low Complexity Adaptive Algorithms for Airborne ECCM

    SBC: Adaptronics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Recent research has shown that effective jammer and clutter suppression is best performed with fully space-time adaptive processing. However, allowing adaptive weights on every tap on every element is computationally prohibitive and requires too many samples to converge. Eigenvalue analysis shows that the required number of degrees of freedom (DOF) is significantly less than the dimensionality of ...

  3. Apparatus for the Testing of Solid Cryogenic Mechanical Properties

    SBC: ADVANCED MATERIALS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed effort in Phase I is to identify properties of propellants that solidify at cryogenic temperatures, "cryosolids", that will be tested in Phase Ii and to deliver a detailed design of a cryogenic testing device. This device will be able to measure tensile, flexural, shear and compressive strength, elastic moduli, and hardness of these cryosolids. In addition, this device will be able ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. REENTRY VEHICLE BODY SIGNATURE SIMULATION IN THE ULTRAVIOLET TO INFRARED SPECTRUM

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

    THE PROPOSED PROGRAM WOULD PROVIDE THE AIR FORCE BALLISTIC SYSTEMS DIVISION (BSD) WITH AN ENGINEERING LEVEL SIGNATURE MODELING CAPABILITY FOR VARIOUS TYPES OF REENTRY VEHICLES (RVS) DURING THE MIDCOURSE PHASE. THE PRESENT AERODYNE RESEARCH, INC. (ARI) SPIRITS SIGNATURE MODEL OFFERS THE BASSIS FOR THE MODELING CAPABILITY IN THE ULTRAVIOLET (UV) THROUGH THE INFRARED (IR) SPECTRUM. THE SPIRITS MODEL ...

  7. Development of an Effective IR Decoy with Minimal Visible Signature

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

    Nighttime operations are very attractive for the U.S. Armed Forces since these conditions generally maximize their advantage over the opposing forces. The deployment of IR countermeasures to protect aircraft from heat-seeking missiles, however, may remove the advantage of nighttime conditions and expose the aircraft to anti-aircraft artillery and small arms fire. Therefore, a need exists for an IR ...

  8. Infrared Detection of Atmospheric Corrosion on Metallic Surfaces

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

    The objectiwe of this proposal is to develop a versatile, inexpensive, and portable spectroscopic probe to quantify the atmospheric corrosion of metal surfaces on aircraft. Since many metals form insoluble salts as products of corrosion reactions, it should be possible to monitor the extent of metal corrosion by measuring the surface coverage of these products. For example, aluminum, which is a ma ...

  9. Data Management for Imaging Spectrometers

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

    Imaging spectrometers are a powerful new tool for performing hyperspectral measurements for remote sensing, environmental monitoring, and target detection and characterization applications. The major problem associated with hyperspectral measurements now, however, is not the technology for performing the measurements but rather the technology for analyzing and recording the high data rates genera ...
