  1. Novel Room Temperature Method for Rapid In-Situ Removal of Oxide Layers from Superalloy Surfaces

    SBC: Ultramet            Topic: N/A

    Both failure analysis and reconditioning of nickel superalloy gas turbine and rocket engine components are plagued by a major problem: the thin oxide films that form on unprotected fracture surfaces during field operation obscure the surfaces intended foranalysis and interfere with repair procedures. Such oxide films mask the fracture surfaces and make them very difficult, if not impossible, to a ...

  2. Low-Cost Carbon/Carbon Structures for Advanced Hot Section Components, Phase II

    SBC: Ultramet            Topic: N/A

    The well-established high temperature strength, low density, and mechanical and thermal shock-resistance of carbon/carbon composites represent perhaps the most appealing combination of properties exhibited by any ceramic or metallic material currentlyunder consideration for advanced aircraft engine and airframe structures. The shortcomings of c/c are aslo will known, namely the inabiliity of curre ...

  3. Active Control of Payload Fairing Noise Using Smart Foam

    SBC: ESI US R&D            Topic: N/A

    This Phase II will develop a cost- and weight-effective means for achieving an improved low- and mid-frequency acoustic environment in payload fairings for rockets at lift-off. The solution to be developed will consist an active noise control system withan optimum selection of SmartFoam, distributed active vibration absorbers (DAVAs) and acoustic actuators.

  4. Micro PPT Optomization and Development II

    SBC: W. E. RESEARCH LLC            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this proposal is to develop a micro pulsed plasma thruster (micro-PPT), or even a family of micro-PPTs, with substantially reduced system mass. Secondary objectives are higher thrust, improved propellant efficiencies, and scalabilityacross a wider range of operating energies, compared to current PPT designs. PPTs operating at pulse energies of 10-20 Joules have been used for small ...

  5. Intelligent Turbine Engine Diagnostic System


    Intelligent Automation Corporation (IAC) has developed under a Phase I SBIR topic a signal processing technique to detect the onset of turbine engine augmentor instabilities known as

  6. A Testbed for Data Fusion for Gas Turbine Engine Diagnostics and Predictive Diagnostics


    The key to producing more confident, real-time, on-wing diagnoses resides in the processing of multisensor data. Adding expensive new sensors is not the solution, but data fusion is. Fusion saves cost and weight; no new sensors are required. Fusionreduces false alarm rates; faults to be seen across multiple sensors. Diagnostic performance is improved by allowing detection of unique fault patte ...
