Obsolescence of electromechanical instruments and navigation sensors is one of the main reasons for new avionics development in military training aircraft upgrade programs. The growing requirements for advanced trainers in the role of lead-in-fighter aircraft push the development of integrated avionics system where cockpit displays mission computer solid-state navigation sensors communication transceivers and flight data recorders are extensively employed.

This thesis project developed a cost-risk assessment method that incorporated the effects of cost dependency between components in a system. The method uses program personnel's subjective assessments of component dependency as inputs. A simulation model was developed and employed to test the method under various levels of component dependence strength and direction, estimation error, and system size. The analysis was accomplished by performing sensitivity analysis on the predictive capabilities...

In 1989 at the Paris Air Show, a K-36D ejection seat gained wide public attention when the pilot successfully ejected from a MiG.29 after an extremely low altitude engine failure. The K-36D is standard equipment in Russian high-performance aircraft, being rated for survivable ejections at speeds of 0-755 KEAS. In 1993, a Foreign Comparative Testing (FCT) Program was initiated to evaluate the Soviet designed K-36D ejection seat. The objectives of this program were to increase USAFIUSN knowledge...

Divergence experienced during rolling maneuvers has frequently been referred to as inertial coupling. This leads to a misconception of the problems involved. The divergence experienced during rolling maneuvers is complex because it involves not only inertial properties, but aerodynamic ones as well. The material in this chapter is intended to offer a physical explanation of the more important causes of roll coupling. Coupling results when a disturbance about one aircraft axis causes a...

A novel associative memory is discussed which overcomes the early saturation problem of Hopfield memories, without resorting to dilute state vectors or nonlocal learning rules. The memory uses a Bidirectional Linear Transformer (BLT) which transforms the bipolar input vector x into a vector u, which is a linear combination of Hadamard vectors. The matrix of the BLT is of Hebbian form, equal to the sum of outer products of stored vectors q to infinity and Hadamard vectors h to infinity. The...

The second was a new approach using the Cloud Scene Simulation Model developed by Phillips Laboratory. Cloud scenes were generated using...

As with all military thought, a wide variety of political, historical, and economic factors guided the development of air doctrines in the period between the First and Second World Wars. Yet standing above all other influences was a revulsion against the mud and despair of the trenches. Thus, it is not surprising that an Italian senior officer, Giulio Douhet, would argue that airpower could prevent the repetition of a war that had cost Italy more than 400,000 dead. In terms of the first...

Bluff shaped bombs are of interest as an internally carried munition because they package well in internal bays and can be delivered throughout the flight envelope of the carriage aircraft. A proposal was made to develop bluff bombs through use of adapter kits consisting of nose and tail castings to convert inventory warheads to bluff shapes. It was further proposed to modify an F-111 weapons bay to carry five such bluff bombs based on the M117 warhead. A program was established to develop and...

This report is the second part of an investigation of the so called 'Dominant Label Selector', (DLS) which is the rear stage of a novel associative memory called 'Selective Reflexive Memory' (SRM). The front stage of the SRM consists of a Bidirectional Linear Transformer (BLT) the output of which is processed by the DLS. The BLT transforms a bipolar input x into a linear combination of Hadamard vectors, and the task of the DLS is to select the dominant Hadamard vector from this linear...

This publication has been produced as a part of the overall research program undertaken by the Department of the Army to improve the capability of the United States Army to conduct PSYOP/information programs under a variety of circumstances in many different environments. The major focus of attention has been placed on psychological operations of military relevance, with special emphasis on the types of activities that may confront U.S. personnel in the two decades ahead. In content, the...

We report on a program of the preparation, characterization and performance of amorphous MoS3 (a-MoS3) as an active cathode material. We have, for the first time, prepared thin films (approx. 1 micro of a-MoS3). This was accomplished by electrodeposition from both aqueous and non-aqueous solutions of (NH4)2MoS4 (ATTM) at room temperature. These thin films were studied by several experimental methods including x rays, Raman scattering, optical transmission and electrolyte electroreflectance....

Casting technology procedures which had been developed for composition 201 and 224 aluminum alloys under Phase 1 of this project were used to sand cast transmission cases and clutch covers of a 2-1/2 ton vehicle. Endurance testing of these components, together with standard cast iron components had a better heat-rejecting capability as compared to cast iron components. Furthermore, composition 224 aluminum alloy transmission assembly had better temperature-lowering characteristics (5.1F) than...

The Romulus security properties modeling environment contains tools, theories, and models that support the high- level design and analysis of secure systems. The Romulus nondisclosure tool supports development and analysis of distributed composite security models and their properties. The Romulus modeling approach establishes the models on a solid theoretical basis and uses formal mathematical too to aid in the analysis. Romulus allows a user to express a model of a secure system using a formal...

We present a modification of the Fast Multipole Method (FMM) in two dimensions. While previous implementations of the FMM have been designed for harmonic kernels, our algorithm works for a large class of kernels that satisfy fairly general conditions, amounting to the kernel being sufficiently smooth away from the diagonal. Our algorithm approximates appropriately chosen parts of the kernel with tensor products of Legendre expansions and uses the Singular Value Decomposition (SVD) to compress...
