Oak Ridge Dept of Energy
Oak Ridge Dept of Energy
  • Partnering for facility enhancements
  • 1.Collaborating on hypersonic wind tunnel heater
    research and nozzle material development
  • If successful, will be applied to high speed
    aeropropulsion testing
  • 2. Providing specialized instrumentation to help
    detect nuclear materials
  • Supports Y-12

AEDC

Chattanooga UT Sim Center
  • Partnering for Computation
  • The Computational Research, Engineering and
    Acquisition Tools Environment (CREATE) is a DoD
    funded effort to harness the power of next
    generation computers for the DoD
  • 1000x faster computers enable simulating an
    entire aircraft
  • The TVC corridor is uniquely positioned to build
    advanced modeling tools for integrating engines
    into aircraft

Huntsville - NASA
  • Partnering for space exploration
  • One of AEDCs largest customers
  • Has supported every manned spacecraft NASA has
    flown
  • Current support to Ares and Constellation extends
    from materials to thermal protection to high
    speed aerodynamics

Huntsville MDA
  • Partnering for Missile Defense
  • Relationship extends over several decades
  • Cooperation includes work in aerodynamics,
    sensors, lethality, signature collection,
    hypersonics, and materials
  • Systems tested Terminal High Altitude Area
    Defense, Patriot, Navy Standard Missile

University of Tennessee Space Institute
  • Partnering for Education
  • Partnership has deep roots dating back to 1950s
  • Mutual support from security to civil engineering
    issues
  • Accelerated M.S. program
  • Pursuing lunchtime M.S. option

  • Partnering for Common Battlefield Airmen Training
    (CBAT)
  • Aim is to train Airmen in ground combat skills
    for GWOT
  • Sites under consideration Arnold (TN),
    Barksdale (LA), Moody (GA)
  • TNArNG on site Instructors, Cantonment Area,
    Marksmanship Range

Partnering for Energy Independence
  • Alternative Fuels Testing Fischer-Tropsch (F-T)
    Synthetic Fuel
  • AF goal to certify fleet to fly on F-T fuel by
    2011
  • Ground testing integral to achieving goal
  • Support already delivered for B-1, B-52, F-15 and
    F-16 engines
  • Can help state on similar initiatives

Ensuring Our Long-Term Viability
  • Much of the test infrastructure at AEDC is aging
    and in need of service life extension … MILCON
    needs are significant
  • Major Refurbishment Needs
  • Aeropropulsion Systems Test Facility (ASTF)
  • RC1 (funded starting FY09)
  • EC1
  • A/B Exhaust Plant
  • Integrated IT
  • Test Utilities (power distribution, cooling
    water)
  • Proposed Military Construction
  • Consolidated Laboratory Complex
  • Facility Maintenance Complex
  • Fitness Center
  • Provides dry air to enable altitude testing of
    fighter-class engines
  • Environmental risks increasing
  • Trichloroethylene
  • R-12

Summary
  • AEDC is a technology engine for the TVC
  • AEDC alliances within the TVC exploit synergies
    in core competencies
  • The future looks bright!
  • CREATE
  • Constellation Ares
  • Missile Defense
  • UTSI
  • CBAT
  • Alternative Fuels

At AEDC, Regional Partnerships Advancing the TVC
Are a Way of Life!

Questions

Job 12196 Optical Detection of Alpha
Contamination
  • Objective
  • Investigate the applicability of using the
    ultraviolet (UV) and visible (VIS) light emitted
    by air molecules that have been ionized through
    interactions with alpha radiation to indicate the
    presence of nuclear material. If viable, this
    technique could give a visual indication of the
    location and extent of a contamination field.
  • Products
  • Evaluate the use of an AEDC designed/built solar
    blind hyper spectral imager.
  • Provide expert technical assistance in the
    evaluation of the sensor and to identify sensor
    improvements.
  • Accomplishments
  • Initial testing performed at the Y-12 National
    Security Complex (Oak Ridge) with the Ultraviolet
    Spatial Spectral Imaging System
  • Solar Blind Ultraviolet Radiometer also provided
    to Y-12 for follow-up testing in coming months
    (Spring 08)
  • Issues
  • Early funding problems resulted in a later than
    desired start to the project. Obtained a Period
    of Performance extension from customer to expire
    at the end of FY08.

Costs Total Dollars per period
  • Planned Activities
  • Continue further testing with the High
    sensitivity radiometer to determine requirements
    for potential instrumentation development
    activities.
  • Requested by Y-12 customer to provide Public
    Release information regarding instrumentation
    development capabilities to be included in a
    proposal for future instrumentation at Y-12.
  • Complementary Activities
  • Instrumentation Diagnostics (Project 11807)
