  • Upgrading armored vehicle sensor systems

    Publication Year: 2004, Page(s):26 - 32
    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1342 KB)

    Successful sensor modifications or upgrades of existing armored military vehicles call for extensive information of the desired operational environment, host vehicle and weapon system characteristics, and sensor performance limitations. Radar systems operating in the higher microwave or millimeter wave bands seem to be an attractive choice in terms of tracking capabilities and operation in poor vi... View full abstract»

    Over the past several years, a Web-based environment to support aerodynamic testing has been under development at the Aerodynamics Laboratory of the Institute for Aerospace Research, National Research Council of Canada. As a mechanism for interacting with users, the WWW offers one significant advantage over other, more traditional techniques: it is "easy". More specifically, it is easy to use, eas...

  • Lithium-ion batteries for aerospace

    Publication Year: 2004, Page(s):18 - 25
    Cited by:  Papers (15)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (908 KB)

    Under the Mars Surveyor Program (MSP01), lithium-ion batteries were developed by Lithion Inc. (Yardney Technical Products Inc.), each being 28 V, 25 Ah, 8-cells, 9 kg and fully qualified prior to mission cancellation. In addition to the requirement of being able to supply at least 90 cycles on the surface of Mars, the battery was demonstrated to be capable of operation (both charge and discharge) ...

  • Pulse width considerations for a short range millimeter wave radar

    Publication Year: 2004, Page(s):14 - 17
    Cited by:  Papers (2)

    Simple means for optimizing the pulse width of a basic tracking short-range millimeter wave radar are shown. Ground-based or maritime use is assumed. The cases discussed include volume clutter due to rain or other particles within the antenna's main beam and surface clutter due to grass, soil, or snow. Depending on the available RF hardware and desired lowest detectable target RCS, pulses as short... View full abstract»

  • Fuel-cell powered airplane propulsion

    Publication Year: 2004, Page(s):12 - 13
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (689 KB)

    The advantages of fuel-cell auxiliary power in airplanes have been obvious. Fuel cells can generate for an airplane its auxiliary electric power more efficiently than can propulsion-engine powered generators, thus reducing the quantity of fuel that must be carried on a trip. Boeing has now organized a team for developing a small airplane that flies at low altitude to demonstrate the advantages of ... View full abstract»
