2001 Assessment of the Office of Naval Research's Aircraft by National Research Council, Division on Engineering and

By National Research Council, Division on Engineering and Physical Sciences, Naval Studies Board, Committee for the Review of ONR's Aircraft Technology Program

The place of work of Naval study (ONR) gotten smaller with the Naval reports Board (NSB) of the nationwide examine Council (NRC) to set up a committee to check ONR's plane know-how application (ATP). The committee convened on may well 15 and sixteen, 2001, and reviewed a few 28 technology and know-how (S&T) efforts that have been offered as constituting the ATP. The committee met individually on may possibly 17, 2001, to formulate its findings and suggestions. This record represents the consensus opinion of the committee and relies at the info awarded on the overview. The ONR ATP is living in the Strike know-how department (Code 351) of the Naval Expeditionary struggle technology and expertise division (Code 35). In 2001 the ATP is funded at $55.0 million, that's nearly 60 percentage of the Strike know-how department finances. The ATP S&T 2001 funds is extra divided into the subsequent different types: (1) 6.1 easy examine at $4.3 million, (2) 6.2 exploratory improvement at $18.1 million, and (3) 6.3 complex improvement, together with expertise demonstrations, at $32.5 million. in spite of the fact that, the ATP might be in significant transition starting in FY02.

Starting in FY02, all the 6.3 investment and one-half of the 6.2 investment on the ONR can be devoted to 12 significant software parts often called destiny Naval services (FNCs). the aim of the FNCs is to concentration complex expertise improvement at ONR on naval strength functions which have been pointed out as excessive precedence for the long run by way of a cross-functional crew of naval operators, naval improvement and aid corporations, and ONR software managers. Plans were made to combine a number of of the Code 351 courses reviewed into FNCs. The ATP used to be awarded to the committee in six thrust components: built-in avionics, propulsion and gear, air car expertise, unmanned aerial vehicles/unmanned strive against air cars (UAVs/UCAVs), survivability, and distinctive aviation tasks. a number of tasks have been offered inside of each one thrust region. The committee geared up this document according to those thrust components, and in different of those components it additionally indicates new S&T themes for attention for the longer term ATP. The findings and suggestions of the committee are summarized during this report.

Safety Design for Space Operations

Counseled by way of the overseas organization for the development of area defense (IAASS) and drawing at the services of the world’s major specialists within the field, Safety layout for house Operations offers the sensible how-to tips and information base had to facilitate potent launch-site and operations defense according to present laws.

Fundamentals of Linear Systems for Physical Scientists and Engineers

Due to the appearance of cheap computing, it's attainable to investigate, compute, and enhance effects that have been unthinkable within the '60s. regulate structures, telecommunications, robotics, speech, imaginative and prescient, and electronic sign processing are yet a number of examples of computing functions. whereas there are various very good assets on hand that target one or subject matters, few books disguise many of the mathematical concepts required for a broader variety of functions.

Instead the committee sees an assumption that most new vehicle performance technologies would be too costly. Furthermore, there are continuing problem areas that will limit capability but that, if they are understood, can be exploited. One example involves the complex coupling of transonic aerodynamics with an elastic structure, moving control surfaces, and maneuvering flight, most recently found in F/A-18E/F flight tests. Such coupling exemplifies the limits of current technologies, which will continue to surprise us and limit air vehicle capability until they are better understood.

Few such near-term opportunities are evident. ”5 The overall program is known as the Advanced Air Vehicle (AAV) program and is said on the above-mentioned DARPA Web site to be a partnership between DARPA, 5Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. 2001. , August 13. html>. 32 2001 ASSESSMENT OF THE OFFICE OF NAVAL RESEARCH’S AIRCRAFT TECHNOLOGY PROGRAM ONR, and industry. The AAV program has two components. The first is the CRW ATD just discussed and targeted for completion by the end of FY01. The second is the Hummingbird A160, or Hummingbird Warrior, scheduled through FY04.

2-funded projects include advanced materials (ceramic matrix vanes, tiled turbine blades), combustors (active combustor control, integrated-shortened combustors), integrated prognostics and health management, improved bearings (rolling contact bearings, magnetic bearings), and improved mechanical analysis (blade vibration code verification, crack growth models). Insufficient information was presented to the committee to permit detailed assessment of each effort. 2 funding, a review of them in isolation runs the risk of being out of context.
