  1. Control Electronics for Space-Qualified Cryogenic Coolers

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: MDA17T003

    Future MDA space missions will utilize small spacecraft with correspondingly small, advanced sensor systems.Cooling of these sensors is required to decrease detector noise and increase detector sensitivity by maintaining the detector at a reduced operating temperature.The cooling system comprises a mechanical cryocooler and its control electronics, both of which are critical technologies to enable ...

  2. Biomechanical Rat Testing Device to Validate Primary Blast Loading Conditions for Mild Traumatic Brain Injury

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A17AT022

    Blast induced Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is a major threat to the health of military personnel serving in modern theaters.As such, the biomechanical injury pathways of TBI are, and have been, the focus of many animal studies.However, differences in the experimental setups across laboratories make it difficult to draw definitive conclusions from the resulting data.A tool that can accurately estim ...

  3. Green Monopropellant Thruster TRL Maturation Scaling Effort

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: MDA12T008

    Diode-Pumped Alkali Lasers (DPALs) have great potential for high-energy lasers. Proper design of these systems is challenging because many interrelated processes impact their performance, and critical kinetic rate coefficients are not well known. In response, our team is developing a comprehensive physics-based analysis/design tool, and experimentally determining key kinetic rate coefficients. The ...

  4. Development of a Wearable Bladder Monitoring System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DHA172012

    Soldiers with spinal cord injury (SCI) face a lifetime of bladder dysfunction.Although the type and character of this dysfunction depends on the severity and level of spinal injury, many of these soldiers and veterans suffer from renal insufficiency, frequent and severe antibiotic-resistant bladder infections, and the emotional and social stress of unexpected bladder leakage.We propose that signif ...

  5. Development of an Automated Vascular Access Device

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DHA173003

    Vascular access is among the first and most critical steps in the stabilization and treatment of critically injured soldiers and civilians. In the field, where patients are volume-depleted from blood loss or dehydration, vasoconstricted, or hypothermic, traditional peripheral venous access and CVC access becomes exceedingly difficult. We propose a self-contained device that significantly simplifie ...

  6. Multi-Function In-Ear Probe

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DHA18001

    The nature of military operations leads to high noise levels, exposing personnel to the possibility of noise induced hearing loss (NIHL). Individual hearing monitoring is conducted yearly which can only provide a record of the progression of irreversible hearing loss with limited options for intervention and mitigation. Furthermore, there is limited data that links actual, real-world noise exposur ...

  7. Compact System for Sound Field Testing of Hearing Performance

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DHA18007

    Hearing loss is the third most common chronic physical condition in the U.S.more prevalent than diabetes or cancer. Globally, in 2015, about one half billion people had disabling hearing loss, or roughly 6 to 8% of the world population. Occupational hearing loss is one of the most common work-related illnesses and the most common service-related disability among veterans. As a result, more individ ...

  8. An Advanced Thermal Management System for Gimbal-Mounted Sensors

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: MDA07004

    Future missile detection systems will require improved thermal management for cooling gimbal-mounted sensors and optics. Current systems utilize cryocoolers placed on the gimbal, which necessitates the cryocooler heat to be rejected directly from the gimbal. A far superior approach in terms of payload mass would locate the warm elements of the cryocooler on the stationary platform near the space ...

  9. Longwave Infrared Focal Plane Arrays for Missile Tracking at High Frame Rates

    SBC: QmagiQ, LLC            Topic: MDA07015

    Missile seekers would benefit from a focal plane array (FPA) that allowed high-speed single or multiple-windowing acquisition of the target or targets while maintaining situational awareness of the rest of the field of view. Such data reduction helps where bandwidth is limited, e.g. arrays with formats larger than 1Kx1K, allowing tracking of high-speed missiles at high frame rates. Readout multi ...

  10. Passive IR Sensors Based on High Quantum Efficiency P-on-N Type-II Strained Layer Superlattices

    SBC: QmagiQ, LLC            Topic: MDA06013

    We propose to develop a high-performance longwave infrared focal plane array (FPA) based on Type-II InAs/(In)GaSb strained-layer-superlattice (SLS) technology and deliver it packaged in a portable handheld CAMERA. In Phase 1, a matrix of recipes was designed and grown, several wafers were processed, arrays were fabricated and characterized, and material and process issues identified. In Phase 2, ...
