  • Air Force tests plasma reactor to degrade, destroy PFOS, PFOA

    WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio – Civilian researchers completed a two-week field demonstration here using an innovative plasma technology to degrade and destroy perfluorooctane sulfonate and perfluorooctanoic acid, known as PFOS and PFOA, in groundwater.This was the first field demonstration of the Enhanced Contact Plasma Reactor, conducted
  • AEDC testing efficient water line repair method

    When it’s possible to increase operational reliability while minimizing the cost and disruption caused by maintenance, it’s a win-win.Arnold Engineering Development Complex team members are implementing a trial run of such a solution to the problem of leaks in raw water pipes at Arnold Air Force Base. Raw water is used in the cooling systems of the
  • Innovation advances test operations at hypersonic propulsion facility

    Improvements by team members of the AEDC Aerodynamics and Propulsion Test Unit (APTU) at Arnold Air Force Base have prevented unscheduled downtime and avoided equipment damage at the facility.Adam Webb, an electrical engineer for the Test Operations and Sustainment (TOS) contractor, National Aerospace Solutions, improved upon software for the
  • 3D printing successfully used to fabricate discontinued part for lube oil system

    When a decades-old part could no longer be purchased, the Plant Operations and Maintenance team at the Arnold Engineering Development Complex Engine Test Facility at Arnold Air Force Base coordinated with members of the Condition Based Maintenance, group, or CBM, to determine how best to recreate the piece.The most economical solution was
  • Innovative approach by Arnold craftsman makes task faster, less strenuous

    It doesn’t slice. It doesn’t dice.It doesn’t have the stain-fighting power to make your whites whiter and your brights brighter. It won’t make you look 10 years younger or give you six-pack abs.It won’t keep your boat with the screen door bottom from sinking.Still, James “Trapper” Landon’s recent invention has been deemed an overwhelming success,
  • Defenders go mobile with new comm system

    96th Security Forces Squadron began testing a new communication system for base defense called the Android Tactical Assault Kit. The tablet-based system has the potential to change and update how security forces squadrons manage their base defense mission.
