  1. Ceramic Matrix Composite Low Pressure Turbine Blade Development

    SBC: Hyper-Therm High-Temperature Composites            Topic: AF083108

    Although the turbine engine has revolutionized both military and commercial aircraft, future requirements for more capable, durable, and cost-effective aircraft systems can only be achieved through even greater advancement in propulsion capability. Necessary performance improvements for turbine engines include increased thrust, lower fuel consumption, and reduced emissions by means of higher opera ...

  2. Two-Phase Ammonia Pump for Mono-Propellant Warm Gas Pressurization

    SBC: BUSEK CO., INC.            Topic: AF083111

    ABSTRACT: An integrated warm gas pressurization of the main and ACS propulsion system offers simpler, more efficient propellant management than existing designs. The most operationally versatile system is based on a unique pump that forces liquid through a gasifier thus creating both the pressurant gas and warm gas for ACS thrusters. All components of such a system are COTS with the exception o ...

  3. Injector Stability Screening Technique (ISST)

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: AF083112

    ABSTRACT: ORBITEC proposes to demonstrate and validate a laboratory-scale experimental injector stability screening technique which will quantify injector element stability characteristics. The experimental approach promises to dramatically reduce development cost by utilizing a gaseous single element test facility which presents savings in hardware manufacturing, consumables, and test facility l ...

  4. Design Tools for Combustion Stability

    SBC: METACOMP TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: AF083112

    ABSTRACT: When using the current state-of-the-art in spatial discretization, numerical flux functions and temporal integration techniques, the amount of effort required for simulations in general geometries is prohibitively large for most unsteady simulations in multi-element rocket engines. In addition, current numerical techniques, while effective for stationary flows, have a potential for spur ...

  5. Weapon System Intermittent Fault Detection

    SBC: Livewire Innovation, Inc.            Topic: AF083113

    ABSTRACT: Weapon systems or other high value electrical systems within the US military are all subject to wiring faults and degradation. Additionally, weapon systems are kept in service longer because of shrinking defense budgets, further compounding the risks associated with wiring systems. The ability to detect and provide the location of existing wiring problems or pending failures is critic ...

  6. ASSIST: Predicting Flaw Initiation and Propagation in Aged Solid Rocket Motors

    SBC: Analytical Services, Inc.            Topic: AF083115

    ABSTRACT: When a solid rocket motor propellant grain contains one or more flaws (cracks, debonds, casting voids) or develops them as it ages, the risks of testing that motor is significantly increased. The responsible authority must decide between testing a motor that may destroy expensive testing infrastructure and relegating a motor for demilitarization that may not have failed from the flaw. ...

  7. Quantitative Propellant Diagnostics with Ultrasonic Guided Waves


    ABSTRACT: Solid rocket motor propellant degrades over time. Currently, health determinations are either destructive or involve expensive and time-consuming off-site tomographic techniques. In Phase I, Luna proposed a nondestructive, in-situ Ageing and Defect Monitor suitable for use in depot or field. In Phase I, Luna has shown feasibility of an ultrasonic nondestructive depot/field test se ...

  8. Precision Microvalve for Green Propellants

    SBC: BUSEK CO., INC.            Topic: AF083116

    ABSTRACT: Busek proposes to develop a flight-prototype piezo microvalve useful for micro chemical thrusters that require precisely metered flow rates. Deriving from a flight-qualified Busek microvalve and a successful proof-of-concept Phase I laboratory prototype, this proposed valve will be small, lightweight, and ready for flight qualification. It can linearly actuate thrust up to the 100 mN d ...

  9. High Temperature Solid Lubricant Coatings for Air Foil Bearings

    SBC: MOHAWK INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: AF083117

    ABSTRACT: Under Phase I MiTi selected the foil bearing/coating system for application to advanced gas turbine engines and prepared the preliminary Phase II engine simulator design to demonstrate the robustness of the bearing and coating system. The objective of Phase II is to continue development of a robust foil bearing/coating system for application to the LibertyWorks high mach engine missile ...
