  1. Robust Fuel Injectors for Combustion Instability Reduction

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF181026

    Combustion instability is an ongoing concern for military propulsion systems such as augmented gas turbine engines. Augmentor screech can limit the performance of military aircraft, and can cause durability issues or even catastrophic failure if it occurs. Modern augmentors have close-coupled fueling using simple round injectors to minimize manufacturing cost. In a jet-in-crossflow injector, liqui ...

  2. Real-Time Thermal and 3-D Imaging in Gas Turbine Engines

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF181027

    Despite offering advantages to fields ranging from engine maintenance to engine development, a simple yet accurate system to inspect hot components in operating engines has been elusive due to the challenges of high operating speeds in a harsh environment. In the proposed project, Creare will develop an engine imaging system that will empower its users with real-time surface temperature and 3-D im ...

  3. Development of a Fuel-Lubricated Bearing for UAV Engines

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF181035

    Small aerial unmanned vehicles (UAVs) are vital for a wide variety of military missions and have experienced increases in operational requirements that have outpaced their capabilities. The propulsion system is a key design constraint in any UAV, and current small gas turbines for these vehicles are limited by the conventional oil-lubricated rolling element bearings used to suspend their high-spee ...

  4. Establishing and Maintaining Mission Application Trust in a Shared Cloud

    SBC: SOLID STATE SCIENTIFIC CORPORATION            Topic: AF141040

    In December 2014, the DoD CIO directed that military services manage the migration of their respective applications from dedicated data centers owned and operated by the respective services, to the commercial cloud. This directive included processes and procedures to expedite the process and is a driving force behind the US Air Force (USAF) data center consolidation initiative. Consequently, the U ...

  5. Practical, High-Performance Recuperators for UAS Turbogenerators

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A17001

    Power and propulsion systems for small unmanned aerial systems (UASs) face increasing demands for high efficiency, high power density, and reliability.Small gas turbines offer high power density and excellent reliability, but are less efficient than internal combustion engines.We propose to develop advanced heat exchanger technology that can be used to produce recuperators that will increase the e ...

  7. Robust and Versatile Speed Sensor for Turbochargers

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A18026

    Turbochargers are critical components of internal combustion engines on Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). Control of the turbocharger speed is needed to avoid operation near resonant speeds and to optimize turbocharger performance and life. Currently, there are no robust flight sensors capable of measuring titanium blade turbocharger speeds at high temperatures with limited access. In the proposed ...

  8. Deep-etched pixels for dualband SLS FPAs

    SBC: QmagiQ, LLC            Topic: A18039

    Deep etching is necessary for pixel definition in multi-band infrared focal plane arrays (FPAs) consisting of stacked photodiodes.To eliminate optical crosstalk between pixels and improve modulation transfer function (MTF), the trenches between pixels have to be etched sufficiently deep, resulting in high aspect ratios greater than ~ 5-to-1 in short-pitch FPAs.The resulting loss in optical fill-fa ...

  9. ADHoC Adversarial Machine Learning for the Hardening of Cyber Defenses

    SBC: Siege Technologies, LLC            Topic: A18050

    Siege proposes to develop the ADHoC (Adversarial Machine Learning for the Hardening of Cyber Defenses) software capability which combines a novel implementation of adversarial machine learning with a high-fidelity cyber simulation and evaluation environment to harden DML. The proposed solution provides a process for pairing cyber-attacks with AML algorithms in order to defeat DML systems. Through ...
