Feeling the need for speed, neutrons study fluid flow for hypersonic flight

Oak Ridge National Laboratory

Searching for solutions to supersonic fluid flow behavior, researchers from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and the U.S. Air Force are using neutron radiography at DOE’s ORNL. The team says a better understanding of spray dynamics will lead to improved fuel injector designs for the aeronautic and automotive industries as well as other spray-related applications used in agriculture, pharmaceuticals, manufacturing, and more.

Strong Ability to Detect and Perceive Motion May Prevent Pilot Disorientation

Massachusetts Eye and Ear

A new study led by researchers at Massachusetts Eye and Ear found that good performance on a piloting task was associated with lower vestibular thresholds, which represent stronger ability to sense and perceive information about motion, balance and spatial orientation. Published online today in the Journal of Neurophysiology, the findings suggest that astronauts or pilots with higher vestibular thresholds are more likely to become disoriented during flight, especially in situations when gravity is less than that on Earth – such as on the Moon.

Looking ahead: What’s the next big thing in aviation screening?

Homeland Security's Science & Technology Directorate

Although airports are much more secure today, the check-in, security, and boarding process is more time-consuming and intensive which affects the passenger experience. Since the aviation experience has changed so drastically, it begs the question – what will airport security look like 20 years from now?

Sandia delivers first DOE sounding rocket program since 1990s

Sandia National Laboratories

A new rocket program could help cut research and development time for new weapons systems from as many as 15 years to less than five. Sandia National Laboratories developed the new program, called the High Operational Tempo Sounding Rocket Program, or HOT SHOT, and integrated it for its first launch earlier this year under the National Nuclear Security Administration's direction.
