  2. Development of a low-cost, computer-controlled, portable LITA system for high-pressure combustion measurements

    SBC: Advanced Projects Research, Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    We propose to engineer a low-cost computer-controlled optical diagnostic system for measuring sound speed, thermal diffusivity, density, and velocity. This system will use laser-induced thermal accoustics (LITA), a transient-grating technique capable of making accurate single-shot measurements in luminous, multiphase, high-pressure flows. The LITA signal intensity is quadratic in fluid density f ...

  3. Development of a Liquid Hydrocarbon Fuel System for Pulse Detonation Engines

    SBC: Advanced Projects Research, Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    The Pulse Detonation Engine (PDE) is an intermittent combustion engine that relies on traveling detonation waves for the combustion and compression elements of the prosulsive cycle. This engine may be used as a low cost propulsion system in defense flight vehicle system applications or as the low speed cycle for a high Mach number combined cycle engine system. The mechanical simplicity of this e ...

  4. Surface Mapping of Complex Aircraft Components Using CT

    SBC: Aracor            Topic: N/A

    The creation of digital design information for the manufacture of existing parts is a critical need for maintaining part inventories and to ensure the reliable operation of critical equipment. Such parts, which are frequently found in aging military aircraft, pose an important challenge to the Air Force's resupply operations. Current methods for obtaining the surface geometry of parts do not ad ...

  6. Extremely Linear High Contrast Digital Visible Light Camera

    SBC: AMAIN ELECTRONICS CO., INC.            Topic: N/A

    Amain has developed and proposes a new electronic camera technology that digitally captures and converts at the pixel level. The approach, MOSAD,Multiplexed OverSample Analog to digital conversion is based on well proven oversample analog to digital conversion, A/D, processes. Oversample A/D at the pixel is accomplished using charge transfers, eliminating the need for precision or trimmed compo ...

  8. A Highly Accurate, Non-intrusive Measuring Device for Model Attitude and Deformation Detection

    SBC: APOLLO INSTRUMENTS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to build a highly accurate data collection instrument that can be used to measure model attitude and model deformation (MAMD). The measurement system will be easily configured to accommodate a wide range wind tunnel sizes and model sizes. Current techniques for MAMD measurements have many limitations. The proposed approach is novel and unique, and has the ability to meet or exceed al ...

  10. Smart Target Modeling Tool

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The target and its computer representation plays a crucial role in ground-fixed weapon effectiveness analysis. Multiple weapon effects codes are utilized which operate at differing levels of fidelity and focus on differing aspects of the overall problem. Each code in turn has unique target model and interrogation needs. The target models are difficult to create directly and existing target mode ...
