The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY20 is not expected to be complete until September, 2021.

  1. Optimization of Supersonic Jet Noise Using a Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes Approach

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC SIMULATIONS            Topic: A1

    The objective of this proposal is the development and demonstration of a cost-effective high-fidelity aeroacoustic design tool for future commercial supersonic nozzle designs and installations. Although eddy-resolving CFD methods for computing high-speed jet noise are available, such methods are computationally expensive and are currently deemed impractical for use in a design optimization loop. ...

  2. Integrated Launch Vehicle Booster using a Rocket Engine with a Combined Thermodynamic Cycle

    SBC: FRONTIER ASTRONAUTICS, LLC            Topic: Z9

    The concept describes a booster for a launch vehicle that is simpler to make, transport and launch than current launch vehicles. It is composed of two major components. The first being a booster structure and the second being a liquid rocket engine that uses a thermodynamic cycle that is a combination of two common cycles.Furthermore, the engine is actually fairly simple when compared to modern li ...

  3. Optical Line Filter and Spectrometer based Upon Two-Photon Absorption for Doppler LIDAR at 1.053 um

    SBC: ESPYLUX LLC            Topic: S1

    A receiver system for use in LIDAR consisting of an optical filter and optical spectrometer based upon two-photon absorption is proposed. The filter and spectrometer both use dispersion from excited state transitions of atomic rubidium to create a birefringent medium. The birefringent medium of the optical filter rotates the polarization of light so that it is transmitted through crossed polariz ...

  4. Non-Axisymmetric Infrared Plume Tomography for Rocket Plume Species and Temperature Distributions

    SBC: SIERRA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Spatial uniformity within combustion devices, especially circumferential, is extremely important to the reliability and durability of a liquid rocket engine. Conventional combustion diagnostics, e.g. pressure and thrust, characterize global engine behavior, but provide no direct information about thermal and species distributions across the engine. Sierra Engineering has shown that exhaust plume m ...
