Abstract:Enabling aircraft to land on an aircraft carrier requires an arresting gear system that can quickly pull the aircraft to a halt. One of main components of the current arresting gear system are the purchase cables that connect to a series of hydraulic and pneumatic engines that provide the braking… more
Abstract:Hypoxia is a dangerous condition for naval aviators that impacts critical thinking, resulting in a lack of awareness that prevents aircrew from taking appropriate corrective actions. Practical hypoxia training allows pilots to experience the effects of hypoxia so that the symptoms are more readily… more
Abstract:Modern jet engine turbine blades are single-crystal superalloy structures with excellent resistance to high-temperature creep, allowing tight tolerances to be maintained over the blade"s life. However, turbine blades have complicated features that can promote the growth of discrete crystal… more
Abstract:Aircraft carriers are the backbone of the U.S. Navy"s fleet, which operates around the globe, with the sole purpose of launching and recovering aircraft to support U.S. military and peacekeeping interests. The ability to quickly and safely launch aircraft can become a key limitation for an… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: CubeSats provide a new, low-cost platform for space weather missions. They enable new mission paradigms, such as the ability to perform multiple measurements of the same physical phenomena globally from several satellites, in contrast to high-accuracy measurements of multiple phenomena… more
Abstract:Non-lethal weapons (NLWs) are increasingly being used in conflict situations where lethal force is undesirable. As new non-lethal systems are developed, careful evaluation is required to confirm both effectiveness and non-lethality over various payload and range conditions. Computer simulations can… more
Abstract:Machinery Control System (MCS) cabling faults can be difficult to identify and locate since as many as 3,000 to 5,000 I/O points are used and multiple junctions exist in each cable. A single MCS fault can require as many as four maintainers and a full day of troubleshooting to isolate and resolve,… more
Abstract:Increasing use of high power density electronics systems in military vehicles and buildings will significantly increase thermal loads of their Environmental Control Systems (ECS). Advanced thermal management technology is needed for these ECSs. We propose to develop a highly effective, low-cost heat… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Dual-mode scramjet engines must operate over a wide range of flight Mach numbers. Closed-loop engine control is necessary to maintain thrust and flame stability while preventing unstart over the large flight envelope. High-frequency sensors and actuators will be a key component of… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Reducing the temperature of air exiting an Air Cycle Machine (ACM) is an effective way to increase the cooling capacity of Environmental Control Systems. However, this requires a colder turbine inlet air, which can increase the risk of icing in the upstream condenser. To mitigate this… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The installation of EDDIE BOLT fasteners in aerospace assembly is a time consuming process requiring multiple inspections of 100% of the installation of thousands of fasteners per aircraft. After installation, the fastener is inspected multiple times to ensure proper installation,… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Velocimetry measurements in large-scale hypersonic test facilities are challenging because intrusive physical probes produce shock waves that disturb the flow field and conventional seeded methods require injection of particles or gas that are unacceptable. Seedless velocimetry… more
Abstract:Navy ships often develop small, pinhole leaks in stainless steel fuel piping while at sea. Due to the long duration between in-dock maintenance cycles (typically one and a half to three years), temporary patches are often used to repair the leaks. The current composite patches that represent the… more
Abstract:Legacy copper-based power distribution and degaussing cables will not be able to meet the future requirements of Navy ships and submarines. While cable systems employing high-temperature superconductors (HTS) have the potential to meet this need, further development work is required to improve the… more
Abstract:Safe efficient operations on the flight line or on the deck of an aircraft carrier require effective communications between members of the crew and between members of the crew and the aircraft pilot. Maintainers working on the flight deck or flight line are often subject to extremely loud noise… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Hybrid technologies and adaptive resource management can significantly enhance the capability and range of next-generation aircraft. To implement this strategy, we propose to develop a control system to configure the Adaptive Power and Thermal Management System (APTMS) based on the… more
Abstract:Aircraft carriers are the backbone of the U.S. Navy"s fleet, which operates around the globe, with the sole purpose of launching and recovering aircraft to support U.S. military and peacekeeping missions. The ability to quickly and safely launch aircraft can become a key limitation for an… more
Abstract:Diode-Pumped Alkali Laser Systems (DPALS) require a uniform, steady, flowing mixture of helium and rubidium vapor at elevated pressure and temperature. Significant challenges exist because rubidium is a very reactive material. In response, our team is developing a contamination-free, all-metal,… more
Abstract:Chemical, biological, or toxin attacks in military and civilian settings are a serious and growing concern. Standard first aid for exposure to some chemical warfare agents and toxins includes the immediate administration of relevant antidotes using an autoinjector. When an attack occurs,… more
Abstract:Interfaces on existing military chemical/biological protection garments are not designed to fully eliminate macroscopic and microscopic air gaps at folds, fabric surfaces, or hook-and-loop closures, and thus do not provide a hermetic barrier against exposure. Creare proposes to develop a hermetic… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Current Separable Thermal Mechanical Interfaces (STMIs) found in advanced digital processing electronics are unable to efficiently remove dissipated heat, limiting performance far below their capability. The standard approach produces high contact resistance (~1.0°C-in./W) with local… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Accurate measurement of fastener profile relative to the aircraft skin is critical to ensure that aircraft meet operation specifications and to identify areas that require rework to meet tight manufacturing tolerances. Current measurement methods rely on mechanical dial indicators that… more
There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
