Abstract : The feasibility of utilizing the confined vortex as a signature generator has been successfully demonstrated for several modes of operation. These modes of operation include, among others, the direct heating of a source of selective emittance, and the generation of radiant flames in low pressure environments. Recommendations are presented which indicated the appropriate direction for development of the feasible modes of operation.(Author)
