  1. Terahertz Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: AEGIS TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC., THE            Topic: AF09BT33

    Recent advances in THz-source stability, power and practicality have opened the door for active THz imaging in both commercial and military settings. AEgis is teaming with U Buffalo to develop a THz detection device that utilizes classical rectification effects in semiconductor point contacts (SPCs) to achieve response in the 1 to 10 THz range and is capable of operating at temperatures over 150 K ...

  2. New Laser Eye Protection (LEP) Technology for Visors

    SBC: AEGIS TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC., THE            Topic: AF083013

    Laser eye protection is important due to the availability of laser sources (continuous and pulsed) over a broad range of wavelengths. The military uses many laser systems (e.g., training devices, range finders, target designators, communications devices) that emit potentially eye damaging radiation. Because personnel risk exposure to these devices, a growing need exists for eye protection at a va ...

  3. Measurement of laser irradiance on target for directed energy weapons

    SBC: AEGIS TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC., THE            Topic: AF093009

    The Laser Irradiance Measurement on Target (LIMT) project will provide a sensor mesh for direct, on-target measurement of laser beam characteristics of interest (e.g., irradiance level, beam size, time history of beam shape). Activities during Phase 1 of this project include identification and prioritization of requirements; design of system and subsystem components; evaluation of component design ...

  4. Qu Tubes for High Temperature Heat Rejection

    SBC: Analytical Services, Inc.            Topic: AF093079

    In our proposed effort, we intend to perform high temperature (100-200 Deg C) characterization of an ultra-advanced heat pipe to determine feasibility of using it in high temperature space radiators. In previous work, we have shown that the so-called "Qu Tube" achieves exceptionally high thermal transport rates at lower temperatures. BENEFIT: Our innovation will significantly reduce the size of ...

  5. Enhanced Carbon Nanotube Ultracapacitors

    SBC: Amtec Corporation            Topic: AF09BT05

    The mission of this proposed research is to develop ultracapacitors (also known as electrochemical or supercapacitors) to address an array of military applications. These applications include pulsed power for directed-energy and kinetic-energy weapons, sensors, and power supplies and control systems for aircraft and spacecraft. The proposed innovation employs carbon nanotubes (CNTs) coated with p ...

  6. Fusion of a Real-time Analytical Model with Facility Control Systems

    SBC: STREAMLINE AUTOMATION, LLC            Topic: AF09BT16

    AEDC personnel have developed and demonstrated the effectiveness of coupling a control volume model with a wind tunnel control system. The performance of the model was hampered because parameters of the model were assumed to be constant, when they are likely variables. A method for using facility data to determine functional relationships defining these parameters would allow them to vary during ...

  7. Store Unsteady Aerodynamic Loads Measurement Technology

    SBC: STREAMLINE AUTOMATION, LLC            Topic: AF093214

    Until recently, the stores released from supersonic aircraft have been carried on external pylons. This locates the initial release point of the store some distance from the aircraft, and the release sequence can be designed to encourage the store to move away from the aircraft after it is released. Aircraft that have been recently developed have internally carried stores. Internally carried st ...

  8. Secure Plant Operations Data Network

    SBC: STREAMLINE AUTOMATION, LLC            Topic: AF073136

    Many AEDC personnel are tasked with supporting facility operations by providing testing support, instrumentation support, facilities engineering and facilities maintenance. This requires personnel to spend some of their time in their normally assigned work areas and portions of their time in and around test cells, wind tunnel control areas, and on the wind tunnels themselves. The AEDC plant area ...

  9. High Heating Rate Electrical Discharge Calorimeter Calibration System

    SBC: STREAMLINE AUTOMATION, LLC            Topic: AF083257

    In answer to the need for an increased heat-flux calibration capability, Streamline Automation (SA) proposes a novel calorimeter calibration system including a data reduction methodology and its implementation and demonstration in a high heat-flux calibration unit, powered by an electrical discharge. The new calibration system: enables calibration at heat flux levels specific to high-enthalpy hyp ...

  10. 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 ...
