  • Publication number: 20070121688
    Abstract: In accordance with at least one embodiment of the present invention, a manufacturing system includes a factory system and a field system. The factory system includes a first mount configured to receive, support, and precisely locate a removable line replaceable unit (LRU) having one or more components at a first factory LRU station within the factory system. The received LRU components are capable of adjustment to configure proper operation of the received LRU within the factory system. The field system corresponds to the factory system and includes a second mount configured to receive, support, and precisely locate an LRU removed from the factory system at a first field LRU station corresponding to the first factory LRU station. The removed and received LRU is configured for proper operation within the field system without adjustment of the one or more LRU components.

  • Publication number: 20060239872
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus are provided for the generation of hydrogen peroxide from an electrochemical (EC) cell arrangement. One embodiment of the apparatus comprises an EC cell having anode and cathode electrodes with a cation exchange membrane disposed between them to form anode and cathode compartments. An aqueous salt solution is supplied to the anode compartment and water and oxygen are supplied to the cathode compartment. An electric potential applied across the anode and cathode electrodes initiates an electrochemical process that results in the formation of an acid anolyte solution in the anode compartment and an alkaline catholyte solution in the cathode compartment. The anolyte solution and the catholyte solution are combined in a neutralizing chamber to form a neutral aqueous solution comprising hydrogen peroxide, salt, and water. The hydrogen peroxide is separated from the neutral aqueous solution by conventional means.

  • Publication number: 20060219097
    Abstract: An apparatus and method for gas/liquid separation on an array of jets or streams of liquid is provided. Layers of structured packing material are configured to “quiet” high-velocity liquid flow with entrained gas to provide a flow at moderate or low velocity from which the gas has been substantially separated from the liquid.

  • Publication number: 20050025209
    Abstract: A solid generator laser provides device simplicity and fuel regeneration without relying upon highly-corrosive or unstable fuels. The laser system includes a fuel supply system that provides a solid fuel to a laser. The laser processes the fuel products to produce at least a solid waste product and a gaseous waste product. A fuels regeneration system receives the solid and gaseous wastes at a reagent production system to replenish the fuel products in the fuel supply system. Rather than relying upon corrosive fuels such as BHP, then, the laser suitably processes solid peroxide (e.g. Na202) and a halide (e.g. hydrogen or deuterium halide) to form a salt, water and singlet delta oxygen that may be used to induce a lasing effect. The processes and structures described herein may be used, for example, with chemical oxygen iodine lasers and the like.
