The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. A Computational Tool for High Advance Ratio Configurations

    SBC: Sukra Helitek Inc.            Topic: A306

    Newer vertical lift configurations consider speed as an important design parameter with forward speeds upwards of 230 Knots, which is well above the acceptable incompressible flow regime. In such high speed vertical lift configurations, even though the aircraft may be cruising at compressible Mach numbers, incompressible flow pockets can occur in the wake of the fuselage. Hence, in contrast to mos ...

  2. RotCFD: A Viscous Design Tool for Advanced Configurations

    SBC: Sukra Helitek Inc.            Topic: A209

    During initial design studies, parametric variation of vehicle geometry is routine. In addition, rotorcraft engineers traditionally use the wind tunnel to evaluate and finalize designs. Correlation between wind tunnel results and flight tests, when not good, have been often attributed in part to uncertainty in blockage corrections. Estimation of rotor blockage is significantly more complex than bl ...

  3. An Aero-Acoustic Tool for Terminal Area Operations

    SBC: Sukra Helitek Inc.            Topic: A209

    In this highly interconnected world, transportation systems must feature increased flexibility and shorter door-to-door trip times to be successful. Shorter door-to-door trip times require an increased usage of rotary wing and runway independent V/STOL technology. One of the limiting factors to the increased adoption of this technology for providing feeder service to major hubs is the limited un ...

  4. RotCFD: A Viscous Design Tool for Advanced Configurations

    SBC: Sukra Helitek Inc.            Topic: A209

    The incorporation of viscous analysis in design is vital for a completeunderstanding of aerodynamic problems.This proposal offers to develop and integrate with RotCFD a method for semi-automatically generating grids suitable for viscous analysis on complex configurations as well as parallelize the solver in RotCFD to take advantage of today's multi-core machines. The principle idea behind th ...

  5. Computational Wind Tunnel: A Design Tool for Rotorcraft

    SBC: Sukra Helitek Inc.            Topic: A210

    During initial design studies, parametric variation of vehicle geometry is routine. In addition, rotorcraft engineers traditionally use the wind tunnel to evaluate and finalize designs. Estimation of rotor tunnel blockage is significantly more complex than bluff body corrections as the correction depends on operational characteristics such as rotor RPM and thrust produced. This proposal offers to ...

  6. Computational Wind Tunnel: A Design Tool for Rotorcraft

    SBC: Sukra Helitek Inc.            Topic: A210

    Rotorcraft engineers traditionally use the wind tunnel to evaluate and finalize designs. Insufficient correlation between wind tunnel results and flight tests, have been often attributed in part to uncertainty in blockage corrections. Estimation of rotor blockage is significantly more complex than bluff body blockage as the correction depends on operational characteristics such as rotor RPM and ...

  7. High Temperature Telemetry Transmitter for Venus Exploration

    SBC: SOFTRONICS, LTD.            Topic: S402

    The proposed S-band telemetry transmitter will operate in the exterior Venusian high pressure, 465?aC ambient atmosphere without being contained in a thermally protective container. The sealed, radiation-hardened, high-reliability, silicon-carbide-based transmitter uses an ambient heatsink to cool its high temperature transistors without the power, volume, and weight of auxiliary cooling. An inn ...

  8. Development of a Multipurpose Extruder/Press Food Processing System

    SBC: Triple F, Inc.            Topic: B304

    This project is to develop versatile, low mass, energy efficient, and easily maintained multipurpose seed processing (MSP) equipment for food processing in space environments. Phase-1 of the project yielded a conceptual drawing for a MSP. Phase-II consists of six main tasks. The first model MSP will be manufactured, programmed and tested for ESM, function, and quality of processed product. The ...

  9. Aircraft Control Augmentation and Health Monitoring Using FADS Technology

    SBC: Vibroacoustics Solutions, Inc.            Topic: A104

    This Phase I research proposal is aimed at demonstrating the feasibility of an innovative architecture comprising control augmentation and on-line health monitoring system. This architecture integrats Flush Air Data System (FADS) with Reconfigurable Generalized Predictive Control (RGPC) technologies. The Phase 1 effort includes identification and description of all supporting modules, their funct ...

  10. High Temperature Telemetry Transmitter for Venus Exploration

    SBC: SOFTRONICS, LTD.            Topic: S402

    The proposed S-band telemetry transmitter will operate in the exterior Venusian corrosive, high pressure, 460oC ambient atmosphere without being contained in a thermally protective container. The sealed, radiation-hardened, high-reliability, silicon-carbide-based transmitter uses an ambient heatsink to cool its single high temperature transistor without the power, volume, and weight of auxiliary ...
