  1. High Efficiency, Compact, On-Board Oxygen Generator

    SBC: VESTA SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Due to the limited availability of space onboard the AF jets, it is necessary to miniaturize all the components. Oxygen generation devices are very bulky. Especially, pressure-swing adsorption (PSA) units that yield relatively pure (90+%) oxygen, occupy large space, contain moving parts and are very inefficient. The development of lightweight, compact, energy-efficient, high-purity (99.9+%) on- ...

  2. Highly Permeable and Selective Membranes for High-Flux Atomic Oxygen Generator

    SBC: Materials and Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposed project addresses the feasibility of using dual mixed ionic-electronic conductor (MIEC) and Ag membrane for high flux atomic oxygen generator. The high chemical reactivity of atomic oxygen flux has caused substantial degradation of materials on the Space Shuttle. An atomic oxygen generator which can be used in ground-based laboratories is desperately needed. Current techniques for ...

  5. Statistical Control Process Application to Test Failure Information

    SBC: TOTAL QUALITY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Performance characteristics of weapon system components and the associated support equipment may change with age and other factors. Current test programs have no means to evaluate the effects of these changing factors on equipment performance tolerances. The poblem is exacerbated by the lack of archived performance data and diminishing sources of parts to repair legacy systems.The goal of this t ...
