  • Application of Relay Logic Techniques to Simplify Systems Simulation

    An application is given of mechanical and electrical simplified relay logic techniques for simulating a solid state computer. The basic requirements of any simulation system are simplicity, reliability, maintainability, flexibility, and realism which can be readily satisfied, in most cases, by the use of relay logic techniques. Modular construction of twelve relays prewired to a connector facilitate changing a programmed sequence at the training instructor's discretion. The relay logic is the nucleus of this type of simulation system. View full abstract»

  • Solid-State Conversion Concepts

    Publication Year: 1963 , Page(s): 24 - 29
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (1193 KB)  

    This paper presents a brief outline of the various solid-state energy conversion concepts currently under development by the Air Force. Much of the paper will be on the developments in solar cells and thermoelectrics with only a brief look at piezoelectrics, pyroelectrics, ferroelectrics, the Nernst effect and nuclear photon conversion. These conversion concepts are discussed from the stand-point of present capabilities to satisfy aerospace vehicle electrical power needs together with the author's estimates of possible performance if the concepts are completely developed. The energy sources considered are solar, nuclear, chemical and acoustic with emphasis on solar and nuclear. Research and development is being accomplished in the areas of solid-state energy conversion today because these materials and conversion mechanisms are most nearly ideal for unattended operation in space. That is: they are relatively static (no moving parts); are non-volatile exceptat high temperatures; are reasonably resistant to the space environment; and generally have long lifetime possibilities. The long range objective of the applied research programs in these areas is to acquire the technology for obtaining reliable, highly efficient, long lifetime, light weight, and low cost energy conversion systems for aerospace vehicles. The lifetime requirements are for essentially unattended operation for two years by 1965 and for five to ten years by 1970. Generally high watts/lb, reliability, and long lifetime are the primary objectives, and efficiency and cost are of lesser importance. View full abstract»

  • Thermionic Energy Converters

    Publication Year: 1963 , Page(s): 30 - 33
    Save to Project icon | Request Permissions | Click to expandQuick Abstract | PDF file iconPDF (796 KB)  

    The present state-of-the-art for thermionic energy converters and the basic operating characteristics of various designs are reviewed. Problem areas faced by designers of converters are identified. Recent development trends are pointed out. It is concluded that extensive more basic and applied research must be accomplished in thermionic technology and high temperature materials before practical application of thermionic energy converters will be possible. Discussions are presented without resort to highly technical details or complicated theoretical analysis. A comprehensive bibliography of pertinent literature is included. View full abstract»

    The purpose of this paper is to consider the capabilities and major limitations of the nickel-cadmium, sivler-cadmium, and silver-zinc alkaline secondary battery systems. The considerations of each of these systems are based on analysis and development work currently underway. The primary mode of operation considered is an orbital or charge-discharge type cycling at various temperature and depths of discharge. A brief failure analysis resume' is also presented.

    There have been numerous changes in component characteristics during the last five years. These changes have created many problems for both the designer and the user. The efforts of management, both private industry and government, to focus attention on these problems have created a new discipline, Reliability. This paper will demonstrate that it is within the capability of every organization, large or small, to have a good reliability organization at a reasonable cost. View full abstract»

  • Data Acquisition and Reduction in a Multiple Test Complex

    Publication Year: 1963 , Page(s): 41 - 44

    The system is designed to provide a large measure of test operation control and a disciplined means for test collection and data reduction. It achieves this organization by arranging all data within a fixed format so that all points in the test complex are essentially designated by fixed positions within the format itself. Operation is synchronized by a central instrumentation system, but the individual operating subsystems are largely self-contained. Extensive self-checking features are included to minimize down time. Redundancy is incorporated through all critical paths to further reduce down time. View full abstract»
