Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 11-2-X9.01
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

The Phase I program demonstrated the efficacy of real-time of ultrasonic recession measurements on low density TPS materials. Measurements on internal echoes established the feasibility of non-intrusive temperature measurements. In the Phase II program we will continue to improve, optimize, and extend the technology. Sensors with better eleva...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Vermont

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF10-BT04
Budget: 12/01/12 - 11/30/14

ABSTRACT: In order to achieve precise guidance, navigation and control in reentry vehicles, aerodynamic shape must be accurately known throughout the flight trajectory. In the Phase I program, real-time, temperature compensated ultrasonic measurements of surface recession of TPS materials was demonstrated. Using sensors mounted on the non-heate...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A12-056
Budget: 08/22/12 - 02/18/13

In this Phase I program, we develop and validate an acoustic concept that is capable of measuring interior temperatures in complex munitions propellants. The measurement technique is based on ultrasonic thermometry methods. Using sensors located on the exterior surface, the variation in propagation time is used to estimate the internal temperatu...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 11-1-X9.01
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

Although significant advances have been made in ground-based testing and simulations, it is still impossible to precisely replicate the diversity of in-flight conditions experienced by ablative thermal protection systems (TPS). This leads to uncertainty in the predictions of the magnitude and rate of TPS ablation. Because in-flight monitoring ...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Texas at Austin

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF10-BT04
Budget: 11/09/11 - 08/09/12

ABSTRACT: In order to achieve precise guidance, navigation and control in re-entry vehicles, aerodynamic shape must be accurately known throughout the flight trajectory. For this Phase I program an ultrasonic-based technique for real-time, non-intrusive (5 KHz) measurement of recession during ablation will be developed. The system combines the e...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF083-120
Budget: 08/04/10 - 11/06/12

The operating conditions of air-breathing propulsion engines demand designs that include cooling by the fuel and use of lightweight materials that withstand extreme heat fluxes under oxidizing conditions. Currently there are no means to non-invasively measure the fuel temperature with the required temporal and spatial resolution. It is importa...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF083-179
Budget: 11/25/09 - 11/25/11

The transition in boundary layer flows from laminar to transitional to turbulence has an important impact in hypersonic vehicle aerodynamics and aerothermodynamics. Ground tests of boundary layer transition are generally unsatisfactory due to the high noise levels of ground facilities compared to flight. Flight provides the best environment fo...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF083-260
Budget: 03/24/09 - 12/24/09

The harsh chemically reacting environments associated with turbine inlets offer significant measurement challenges. Gas inlet temperatures of 2200oC and violent chemical reactions pose challenges in instrumentation development and application, which in turn can force design and maintenance compromises. In this proposal we use ultrasonic thermo...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF083-120
Budget: 03/20/09 - 12/20/09

The operating conditions of air-breathing propulsion engines demand designs that include cooling by the fuel and the use of lightweight materials that withstand extreme heat fluxes under oxidizing conditions. Currently there are no means by which the fuel temperature can be non-invasively measured with the required temporal and spatial resoluti...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2009
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims to enhance the automotive friction material manufacturing industry's productivity and efficiency by providing a superior measurement method for quality, consistency and the quantification of noise influencing material properties. Friction material manufacturing is subject to in...
