  1. Low CSWAP Multi-Beam TCDL Antenna System

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: N132089

    Applied Radar proposes to develop a high-gain low cost, size, power and weight (low-CSWAP) tactical common data link (TCDL) antenna for the Firescout and Predator UAVs. The improved TCDL antenna will support 6 or more nodes of high-gain full-duplex communication at 21.42 MBPS in a star network configuration with 360 degree coverage out to 110 nm slant range. In Phase 1, we will design, fabricate a ...

  3. Advanced Wheel Bearing for High Acceleration and Deceleration Applications

    SBC: Nastec, Inc.            Topic: N132103

    Catapult shuttle wheel bearing loading is a function of the aircraft take-off weight and the acceleration of the catapult. The resultant load on the bearings of the existing catapult has significantly changed from the time the subject bearings were selected in 1980. If the projected aircraft take-off weight is 100,000 lbs., the bearing life will be reduced by approximately 94%. The Phase I objecti ...

  4. Advanced Cermet for High Acceleration and Deceleration Roller Bearing Applications

    SBC: Powdermet, Inc.            Topic: N132103

    As aircraft technology continues to evolve, there becomes a need for advanced takeoff systems for aircraft carriers. Increases in aircraft weight and takeoff speed require takeoff systems with reliable components to withstand the increase in force put on the system by the advanced aircraft. In this project, Powdermet will target the improvement of wheel bearings for both steam catapult shuttles an ...

  5. Compact, Repetitive Pulsed Power Driver Design for Emerging High Power Radio Frequency Sources

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: N132129

    The goal of this Phase I research is to demonstrate a scaleable pulse power modulator circuit with a resistive load, meeting scaleable voltage, current and peak power requirements for high power radio frequency (HPRF) source. Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) based high gain Photoconductive Semiconductor Switches (PCSS) will be used for this demonstration. The Phase I demonstration will be limited to 10-100 ...

  6. Integral Fuel Tank Self-sealing Protection


    The opportunity presented under this program is to develop a next-generation, self-sealing technology that can impart self-sealing capability to the most vulnerable areas of integral aircraft fuel tanks. Targeted application of the self-sealing materials will reduce the weight and fuel-volume penalty associated with conventional fuel bladder constructions. Under the Phase I program, the technical ...

  7. Triple-pulse Particle Image Velocimeter for the Simultaneous Measurement of the Velocity and Acceleration Fields of Fluid and Flexible Structure under

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: N12AT011

    A triple pulse PIV concept and a third order correlation method was developed and demonstrated improvements in accuracy and spatial resolution of the velocity and acceleration measurements in an impinging jet flow field. A low-cost system based on overdriven LEDs, uniquely designed single frame camera for capturing the images, efficient scattering techniques, and innovative algorithms were explore ...

  8. Plateau Burning Composite Propellants Using Al and TiO2 Nanocomposites

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: N132105

    Double-base propellants are widely used in Navy aircraft ejection seat systems, partially because of their ability to be tailored to exhibit pronounced plateau burning. Due to degradation problems inherent with double-base propellants, it would be very beneficial to develop composite propellants with this plateau burning capability. Composite propellants typically do not chemically degrade but als ...

  9. Durable Solution for Compressor Airfoil Leading Edges in Gas Turbine Engines

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: N121039

    Particle impacts cause erosion of leading edges of the compressor airfoils as well as the side or surface of the airfoil beyond the leading edge. Although erosion resistant coatings have been developed and applied on the airfoils during the past decade or two and that have protected the side or surface of the airfoil quite satisfactorily, the erosion of the leading edge (LE) is still a serious iss ...

  10. High Temperature Material Coatings

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: N132146

    Hf-based thick refractory coatings will be developed on existing carbon substrates including C-C composites to improve its oxidation resistance at 3200-5000F. A wet-chemical synthesis approach to preparing HfB2VC mixtures will be used which lends itself ideally to control the HfB2VC mixtures and afford a graded coating with carbon rich inner-coat, and HfB2 rich outer coat. A HfO2 outer layer will ...
