  2. Experimental and Analytical Evaluation of Solid Fueled Gas Generator Effluents Suitable for High Mach Combined Cycle PDE Applications

    SBC: Adroit Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The topic presented in this proposal has direct application to the development and demonstration of high Mach combined cycle engines. The proposed effort would allow the coupling of a pulse detonation engine (PDE) with a realistic solid fueled gas generator. The specific key technical problems identified in this proposal are the absence of experimental gas generator effluent detonability informat ...

  3. An Innovative Pulse Detonation Rocket Engine

    SBC: Adroit Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The opportunity addressed in this proposal is an innovative pulse detonation rocket engine (PDRE) which could significantly out-perform current state-of-the-art chemical rocket propulsion systems. The innovation is based in a novel combustion concept developed by Adroit Systems, Inc. (ASI) in the area of airbreathing pulse detonation propulsion. The concept relies on detonation combustion, as op ...

  4. Adv Tech for Minimization of Deflagration to Detonation Transition Distance in PDE Applications

    SBC: Adroit Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Adroit Systems Inc. (ASI) proposes to develop an innovative concept which reduces the required volume of predetonator mixture in pulse detonation engines (PDEs). The propulsive efficiency of the PDE hinges on the ability to quickly initiate a detonation in a fuel/air mixture. Since most fuel/air mixtures are difficult to detonate, an easily detonable predetonator mixture is typically ...

  5. Electromagnetic Coupling to Satellite Cavities

    SBC: ADVANCED ELECTROMAGNETICS            Topic: N/A

    The proposed research combines an innovative eigenvector method with other electromagnetic techniques to produce a hybrid approach towards solving the EM coupling to satellite cavity problem. The physical structure is divided into an exterior region and one or more interior regions. The exterior region is modeled with method of moments (MOM) and or hybrids of MOM with the uniform theory of diffr ...

  6. An Efficient, Unstructured Flow Solver for Complex Aircraft Configurations in Maneuvering Flight

    SBC: AEROSOFT INC            Topic: N/A

    AeroSoft proposes the development of efficient and accurate Computational Fluid Dynamics methods for calculating the airflow characteristics over complex bodies with time-dependent, Reynolds-Averaged, Navier-Stokes equations which have been augmented to allow for dynamic meshes as well as non-equilibrium chemistry and thermodynamics. The dynamic-mesh approach proposed here is based on ...

  7. Analysis and Improvement of Trivalent Chromium Conversion Coatings for Aluminum Alloys

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    The trend toward replacement of highly toxic chemicals with less hazardous alternatives has created the demand for replacement of chromate conversion coatings for corrosion protection of aluminum alloys. Aluminum alloys are the predominate structural material used in aircraft because of their high strength-to-weight ratios, affordability and processability. Aluminum is subject to catastrophic fail ...

  8. Armament Research-Conformal Array for Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) Applications

    SBC: ZIMMERMAN ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    Amelex in cooperation with Ball Aerospace proposes to develop an electronically scanned side-looking radar antenna, which would be mounted conformal to the semi-cylindrical surface of an airborne missile system. The Phase I objective is the completion of a feasibility study to establish the capability of candidate array architectures, and their relevance to existing or planned seeker radar target ...

  9. Non-Intrusive Internal Three Strain Sensor Based Optical Fiber Technology

    SBC: ANALYTICAL SERVICES & MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal describes a conceptual design and initial conceptual experiments of a remarkably straight-forward internal sensor that is capable of measuring three orthogonal strain components. The proposed sensor uses three cascaded in-line micro Fabry-Perot cavities that are individually addressed using coherence division multiplexing. The Fabry-Perot cavities are fabricated from three very dif ...

  10. Interface-Driven Multidisciplinary Design of Large-Scale Aircraft Structures

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

    Under the proposed research an Interface-Driven Design Manager (IDM) for CAD packages will be developed to greatly reduce the design cycle time for aircraft structures. The IDM represents a first attempt to fully integrate powerful new interface element and design management technologies into the CAD environment. These emerging technologiies have the potential for making multidisciplinary design ...
