Abstract
VATELL CORPORATION PROPOSES TO FABRICATE HEAT FLUX MICROSENSOR PROBES SIMILAR TO THOSE BEING DEVELOPED IN A CURRENT AIR FORCE SBIR PROGRAM AND APPLY OUTER PROTECTIVE LAYERS TO THE SENSORS TO ENHANCE THEIR RESISTANCE TO REACTIVE FLOWS AND ACHIEVE HIGHER TEMPERATURE RATINGS. THE PRESENT PROBES ARE DESIGNED FOR APPLICATION AT 1000 DEG C. THE MODIFIED PROBES ARE DESIGNED FOR USE IN HYPERSONIC COMBUSTOR RESEARCH, IN THE PRESENCE OF HYDROGEN AND AIR COMBUSTION AT 1800 DEG TO 5000 DEG R. THREE PROBES WITH DIFFERENT OUTER PROTECTIVE LAYERS WILL BE CONSTRUTED, CALIBRATED, TESTED FOR THERMAL SHOCK RESISTANCE, THEN DELIVERED TO THE SPONSOR. IN A PHASE II CONTINUATION, DIRECT APPLICATION OF HEAT FLUX MICROSENSORS TO HYPERSONIC COMBUSTOR COMPONENTS WILL BE EXPLORED.
