Technical results are presented and progress is described in several phases of continuing applied research and development related to the design and development of high-performance fluid control devices for advanced aerospace systems. Continued emphasis is placed on pneumatic components and systems which are capable of performing over wide ranges of temperature and in the presence of intense radiation. This report describes current work in the Engineering Projects Laboratory dealing with a new pulse actuation servo system, a pneumatic pulse-length-modulated servo system, the dynamics of fluid jet modulators, electrostatic pure fluid modulation, jet pipe inlet coupling, compressible dampers, and gas-lubricated bearings.
