  9. Improved Kinetic Models for High Speed Combustion Simulation

    SBC: REACTION ENGINEERING INTERNATIONAL            Topic: OSD05T002

    Scramjet propulsion has the potential to power high Mach number flight without the need to carry its own oxidizer like a rocket, thus significantly reducing vehicle flight weight. Numerical simulations will play an increasingly important role in the development of scramjet engines. Hydrocarbon fuels are advantageous for scramjet propulsion because of their higher energy density and ease of transpo ...

  10. Optimization of Sodium Guide Star Return using Polarization and/or Modulation Control

    SBC: ROCHESTER SCIENTIFIC LLC            Topic: AF19AT008

    Laser guide stars (LGS) are artificial sources of light produced by laser-induced fluorescence from sodium atoms in the mesosphere between 85 km and 100 km altitude. The fluorescence can be detected on the ground with a telescope and used as a reference for compensating atmospheric aberrations in astronomical and space observations in conjunction with an adaptive optics system. Sodium LGS are vita ...
