By National Research Council, Division on Engineering and Physical Sciences, Naval Studies Board, Committee for the Review of ONR's Aircraft Technology Program
The workplace of Naval learn (ONR) gotten smaller with the Naval reviews Board (NSB) of the nationwide examine Council (NRC) to set up a committee to check ONR's plane expertise application (ATP). The committee convened on might 15 and sixteen, 2001, and reviewed a few 28 technology and know-how (S&T) efforts that have been provided as constituting the ATP. The committee met individually on may well 17, 2001, to formulate its findings and proposals. This record represents the consensus opinion of the committee and relies at the info awarded on the evaluation. The ONR ATP is living in the Strike expertise 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 is nearly 60 percentage of the Strike expertise department price range. The ATP S&T 2001 finances is extra divided into the next different types: (1) 6.1 simple 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 should be in significant transition starting in FY02.

Whilst President Kennedy introduced that the USA may land a guy at the moon by way of the top of the Sixties, he pressured NASA to imagine a "faster, more affordable, higher" attitude that maintains to bedevil it at the present time, says DeGroot (The Bomb: A History). the gap corporation speedy got here up opposed to the budgetary pressures of the Vietnam warfare and increasing household courses, yet as DeGroot writes, Lyndon Johnson insisted the U.
The place of work of Naval study (ONR) gotten smaller with the Naval stories Board (NSB) of the nationwide examine Council (NRC) to set up a committee to study ONR's airplane expertise software (ATP). The committee convened on may perhaps 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 research and computational concepts linked to the navigation and advice of spacecraft are actually in a mature kingdom of improvement. but the documentation has remained dispersed all through convention papers, journals, corporation and agreement rep orts, making it tricky to get a real, finished photograph of the topic.
For almost fifty years, a variety of missiles and rockets has propelled U. S. satellites and spacecraft into the sky. J. D. Hunley's two-volume paintings strains the evolution of this know-how, from Robert Goddard's learn within the Twenties during the improvement of the Titan missiles and release automobiles within the Nineteen Sixties to the refinement of the distance go back and forth within the Nineteen Eighties.

1 component, which is perhaps its major weakness given the ambition of its technical goals. Power This technical area focuses on onboard auxiliary power systems for aircraft, including generation, storage, and distribution. Technology and performance improvements in this area are important to all military and civil aircraft. The problems for naval aircraft seem to be like those for all aircraft and vehicle systems. The national investment in this area, as reported by the Code 351 briefing, is broadly distributed among industry and government agencies.
1997. C. 40 2001 ASSESSMENT OF THE OFFICE OF NAVAL RESEARCH’S AIRCRAFT TECHNOLOGY PROGRAM 8 Special Aviation Projects OVERVIEW The special aviation projects thrust is essentially a management umbrella for coordination, administration, and technical review of system-level efforts involving substantial funding. Currently this thrust consists of two projects, the impetus for which came from outside the normal ONR program development process: (1) vectoring extremely short takeoff and landing control, tailless operational research (VECTOR) and (2) vectored thrust ducted propeller (VTDP) compound helicopter.
The researchers have blended the technology research with realistic operational requirements by setting the failure mode of the actuator to default for the original V-22 proprotor blade configuration. The mix of funds and leveraging of DARPA funds provides a cost-effective way to meet the Navy’s needs. Recommendations The committee strongly endorses this project and recommends that it be continued as planned. Flight Control and Dynamics This program is focused on naval-unique issues such as control and handling quality in low-speed shipboard approach, automated landing on moving ships with turbulent air wakes, UAV reliability for shipboard operations, and hardware with diagnostics/prognostics for maintenance in a maritime environment.
