  1. Miniaturized Thermocouple Scanner

    SBC: STREAMLINE AUTOMATION, LLC            Topic: AF083258

    The AEDC Engine Test Facility (ETF) has more than 20 test cells that can be used for testing prototype propulsion systems and components. The testing of propulsion systems requires significant data acquisition capabilities, with one test utilizing more than 4200 channels of instrumentation, including 700 thermocouples. In response to the sheer set-up challenge, AEDC has developed the concept of ...

  2. High Performance Pulse Motor for Mission Flexibility

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: OSD08PR4

    Although solid rocket motors (SRM) are ideally suited to many propulsion applications, their lack of controllability restricts their mission flexibility. Following ignition of an SRM’s propellant grain, combustion continues until all propellant is consumed. Controllability of the motor’s thrust profile can provide improved missile performance and multi-role capability. One approach to gaining ...

  3. Characterization and Mitigation of Radiation Effects in Quantum Dot Based Nanotechnologies

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA082001

    For applications in DoD satellite systems, devices based on novel nanomaterials offer significant advantages over traditional technologies in terms of light-weight and efficiency. Examples of such novel devices include quantum dot (QD) based solar cells, photodetectors, radars and sensors. However, the response of these devices to radiation effects is not well understood, and radiation effects mod ...

  4. Cure System Equipment Optimization for Rapid Cure Epoxy Coated Fiberglass


    Military aerospace structures require that a fiberglass galvanic corrosion isolation layer be used between any graphite composite parts in contact with aluminum. Adding a layer of fiberglass prepreg onto the aluminum-mating side of the composite laminate is a simple way to meet this requirement. Rapid curing resins and prepreg initiated using UltraViolet (UV) or Light Emitting Diode (LED) energy a ...

  5. High-Bandwidth Noninvasive Sensor Systems For Measuring Enthalpy and Mass Flux in Detonation-Powered Devices

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: AF083124

    The objective of the proposed Phase-II research effort is to build and deliver a hyperspectral sensor to perform velocity, temperature, pressure, and H2O concentration measurements at the end of a detonation tube and the exhaust of a detonation-powered turbine at a rate of 50 kHz. These measurements will help quantify the efficiencies of detonation-powered devices. High-speed measurements of tem ...

  8. Standardized Hardware Independent Framework for Active Sensing

    SBC: SAMRAKSH COMPANY, THE            Topic: SB082033

    We propose to implement a platform based on the .NET Micro Framework (MF) for mote-scale Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) and Active Tag Networks (ATNs). The resulting middleware would significantly simplify the development of applications on these systems, both by providing a hardware-independent, high-level, development environment and by providing standard implementations for essential services ...

  9. 3D Tomographic Reconstruction of Flow Fields for Spatio-Temporal Resolved Measurements in Augmentors

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: AF083102

    The objective of this research effort is to develop a 3-D tomographic reconstruction strategy along with user-friendly software for providing spatially and temporally resolved temperature and H2O concentration data cubes in augmentor flow fields at rate of 50 kHz. This strategy model will be validated in a laboratory turbulent flame and demonstrated in the augmentor test-rig at Air Force Research ...

  10. Improvements to Sense and Avoid (SAA) Systems for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS)


    There is no Sense and Avoid (SAA) solution for small UAS such as Scan Eagle, Raven, or BATMAV, which represent by far the greatest number of UAS. Equipping small UAS with SAA capability is problematic, mainly due to the very small size, weight and power (SWAP) resources available. The SAA system must compete for critical SWAP resources with fuel and payload sensors. Small, low-power EO and sens ...
