Journal of the Korean Society for Aeronautical & Space Sciences, volume 43, issue 4, 2015, Pages 289~295
DOI : 10.5139/JKSAS.2015.43.4.289
This paper describes a ground monocular vision-based measurement algorithm measuring relative range and position of aircraft using the information of wingspan and optical parameters for the camera. A technique obtaining an aircraft image is also described in this paper. This technique can be used as external measurement for autonomous landing instead of ILS. To verify the performance of these algorithms, flight experiment is performed using light sport aircraft with GPS and monocular camera. Finally we obtained the reasonable RMSE of 1.85m is obtained.

Oh, Taek-Hyun ; Kwon, Sejin ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Aeronautical & Space Sciences, volume 43, issue 4, 2015, Pages 296~303
DOI : 10.5139/JKSAS.2015.43.4.296
The concentration of solute in a
solution is limited due to the low solubility of
. The performance of a hydrogen generation system was evaluated using various concentrations of
solution. First, a self-hydrolysis test and a hydrogen generation test for 30 min were performed. The composition of
solution was selected to be 1 wt% NaOH + 25 wt%
by considering the amount of hydrogen loss, stability of hydrogen generation,
precipitation, conversion efficiency, and the purpose of its application. A hydrogen generation system for a 200 W fuel cell was evaluated for 3 h. Although hydrogen generation rate decreased with time due to
precipitation, hydrogen was produced for 3 h (conversion efficiency: 87.4%). The energy density of the 200 W fuel cell system was 263 Wh/kg. A small unmanned aerial vehicle with this fuel cell system can achieve 1.5 times longer flight time than one flying on batteries.

Journal of the Korean Society for Aeronautical & Space Sciences, volume 43, issue 4, 2015, Pages 304~310
DOI : 10.5139/JKSAS.2015.43.4.304
Pintle thrusters use pintle stroke to change nozzle throat area, and this controls thrust. Using MATLAB, one-dimensional simulation has been investigated and the results are compared to those of cold flow tests and computational fluid dynamics for the pintle thruster of Chungnam National University. The prediction based on one-dimensional flow theory shows good agreement with measurements for chamber pressure, but deviates for thrust, partly because of nozzle wall separation. Computational results show that nozzle wall separation occurs at an early stage of nozzle expansion, near the design nozzle throat, for the course of pintle strokes. Empirical thrust prediction incorporates nozzle wall separation, and thus 1-D simulation using empirical thrust prediction showed good results for an early stage of pintle stroke.
Performance Analysis of the Pintle Thruster Using 1-D Simulation-II : Unsteady State Characteristics
Noh, Seonghyeon ; Kim, Jihong ; Huh, Hwanil ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Aeronautical & Space Sciences, volume 43, issue 4, 2015, Pages 311~317
DOI : 10.5139/JKSAS.2015.43.4.311
This paper describes how to apply one-dimensional simulation to predict unsteady state characteristics of the cold-gas pintle thruster. Mass flow rate, chamber pressure, and nozzle exit pressure are key parameters for thrust control. Chamber pressure rose and fell monotonously with the pintle stroke variation, while thrust variation was different from chamber pressure variation. During the forward pintle stroke operation, the thrust value tended to decrease initially and returned to increase when pintle speed and chamber free volume exceed some specified value. Even though one-dimensional simulation has the limitations to predict unsteady state characteristics, it is still useful for initial performance assessment of various thrusters which adopt an altitude compensation nozzle such as a dual-bell nozzle, prior to experiment or numerical analysis.

Journal of the Korean Society for Aeronautical & Space Sciences, volume 43, issue 4, 2015, Pages 318~325

Pico satellite has limited surface to install the solar cells due to its extremely limited size. Also, the sun incidence angle with respect to the solar panel continuously varies according to the attitude control strategy and its important parameter for the power generation. In this study, a concentrating photovoltaic system for pico satellite application has been proposed that can enhance the power generation efficiency in case of the unfavorable condition of the sun incidence angle with respect to the solar panel of the satellite using the fresnel lens. To prove the possibility of maximizing the power generation efficiency of the proposed concentrating power system, we have performed the power measurement test using a solar simulator and commercial fresnel lens. And on-orbit analysis of the power generation efficiency using the STK which is a commercial S/W has also been performed based on the test results.

A turbo fan engine performance analysis program combined with a particle swarm optimization(PSO) has been developed to optimize the major design parameters of the combat aircraft gas turbine engine. The optimized parameters includes bypass ratio, fan pressure ratio, high pressure compression ratio and burner exit temperature. The objective parameters have been determined using a multi-objective function consisting of the net thrust and specific fuel consumption along a weight function. The basic model for the combat aircraft gas turbine engine has been selected as the F404 turbofan engine which is widely used in the combat aircraft, F-18 and Korean high level training aircraft, T-50. The optimal conditions of four parameters have been obtained for various design conditions.
The Effect of Overdesign on Titan Rocket Engine Reliability and Development Cost
Kim, Kyungmee O. ; Hwang, Junwoo ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Aeronautical & Space Sciences, volume 43, issue 4, 2015, Pages 334~340

Engine derating is often considered for reliability benefits because lower power operation reduces its failure probability. To be derated during operation, however, the engine must be initially overdesigned. The engine overdesign is cost effective only if reliability increased from derating is enough to offset the initial increase in the development cost caused from the overdesign. The purpose of this paper is to provide an analytical model to consider a trade-off between the engine overdesign and derating. We use a logistic regression model to explain reliability growth in the number of hot firing tests for a fixed power level. Using the Transcost model with the reliability growth model, we show that 10% overdesign of Titan rocket engine decreases its development cost by about 9% and 23% depending on the reliability requirement. We also point out that such a cost reduction depends on the fuel type a rocket uses.
Stage Separation Analysis of Launch Vehicle Using Monte Carlo Simulation
Oh, Choong-Seok ; Sun, Byung-Chan ; Park, Yong-Kyu ; Roh, Woong-Rae ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Aeronautical & Space Sciences, volume 43, issue 4, 2015, Pages 341~348

This paper addresses Monte-Carlo simulation analyses for the stage separation of the general launch vehicle. The stage separation event of the launch vehicle occurs during a very short time and is related with many dynamic parameters. The stage separation is a critical event in that the launch fails if there is a collision during the stage separation. The stage separation analyses was conducted for the general launch vehicle to confirm the separation without collision within the designed clearance in case of the random input parameters. This paper presents the stochastic results of the stage separation of the launch vehicle using the Monte-Carlo simulation.

This paper aims to design an educational science program based on rocket propulsion for high school students. Curriculum in high school physics and chemistry were evaluated to find out scientific match with basic principles in rocket propulsion. Also model rocketry was implemented as a part of the educational program. Solid propellants were prepared by the combination of sorbitol and candy after a selection process for solid propellant from several high caloric food candidates. Specially, this program was intended to give an opportunity to organize basic knowledge of high school science with model rocketry by measuring combustion temperature, thrust level of developed propellants. A pilot operation of the program was done with four high school students to evaluate the achievement of final goals of the program both in technical and educational aspect.

This paper is the study on the establishment of design model to improve design efficiency using modified weight estimation equation on the initial design stage for development of a helicopter. The methodology to extract coefficients of the weight estimation equation was proposed through the influence investigation for the weight of components and the parameter study and sensitivity analysis for design variables such as the rotor disk loading, the number of blade and the aspect ratio of blade were also performed. As a result of study, the relation of parameters and degree of sensitivity of parameters on helicopter design are considerable points for optimization of helicopter characteristics, and it is necessary for designer to consider the complex relation of main parameters.

DubaiSat-2 is the first satellite developed in Korea equipped with a hall-effect thruster. In this paper, the performance of the DubaiSat-2 hall-effect thruster is verified by analyzing the orbit information of DubaiSat-2. The preparation and performance of orbit operations during 8 months after launch (2013.11.21., UTC) is emphasized and the effects of solar activity on orbit evolution is analyzed. In particular, the hall-effect thruster's thrust is estimated by analyzing difference between observed orbit evolution and predicted orbit. As a result, the estimated thrust is similar to the ground experiment result of 11 mN. The summarized result in this paper would be important reference to improve the stability and effectiveness of satellite operation during the early operation and normal mission lifetime in case of low Earth orbit satellites.
