  1. Analysis of Remote Fire Detection Using Microwave/Millimeter Wave

    SBC: WaveBand Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Lack of reliable fire warning and detection systems for urban/wildland interface, large area industrial facilities and transportation systems results each year in a loss of millions of dollars worth of property; it also endangers lives. Typical optical fire detection sensors do not work well under frequently encountered adverse atmospheric conditions and, in addition, are incapable of covering siz ...

  3. Composite Preburner & Turbopump Housing Materials and Process


    Composite technology exists for application to cryogenic fluid storage without an interface liner. This technology is being applied to an LH2 storage pressure vessel under Air Force Contract F29601-C-0217. This proposal outlines a program to transfer the LH2 composite technology to liquid rocket engine components. This proposal will address requirements for feed system assemblies, such as prebu ...

  4. Development of an optical patternator for the rapid, accurate, and reliable measurement of liquid spray temporal and spatial mass distribution and siz

    SBC: Energy Research Consultants            Topic: N/A

    In many engineering applications, the spatial and temporal distribution of a liquid spray is a determining factor in the system performance. In addition, the size of the droplets produced by the atomization process can also play a significant role. As a result, an instrument is highly desirable for a myriad of applications that provides rapid, accurate, and reliable (1) spatial and temporal dist ...

  7. Porous Sol-Gel Derived Ceramic Release Agent

    SBC: TPL, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Breathable release coatings that can withstand processing conditions up to 750F are needed for use on ceramic tooling. In situ removal of volatiles in solvent-based composite processing is a critical issue that will enable production of high quality parts at lower cost per part. Current release coatings meet neither the temperature nor the solvent transport requirements of solvent-based composit ...

  8. Validation and security verification using a holographic phase mask correlator

    SBC: Accuwave Corp.            Topic: N/A

    Accuwave Corporation will study the feasibility of a volume holographic, phase-encoded optical image correlator for credit card and document validation and security application. Fourier transform holograms of a phase-encoded input image are stored using wavelength multiplexed holographic gratings in a photorefractive crystal. High spatial resolution images can be sotred with low crosstalk using ...

  10. Diagnostic Development for Characterizing Fuel Droplet Temperatures in Spray Flames

    SBC: Aerometrics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Development of efficient spray combustors requires a complete understanding of fundamental phenomena that influence and control the overall spray combustion process. Toward this end, detailed experimental characterization of spray flames is essential. This includes measurement of various fuel droplet parameters such as droplet size, velocity, number density, temperature, composition, and droplet ...
