  1. Development of a Fuel-Lubricated Bearing for UAV Engines

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF181035

    Small aerial unmanned vehicles (UAVs) are vital for a wide variety of military missions and have experienced increases in operational requirements that have outpaced their capabilities. The propulsion system is a key design constraint in any UAV, and current small gas turbines for these vehicles are limited by the conventional oil-lubricated rolling element bearings used to suspend their high-spee ...

  2. Robust Fuel Injectors for Combustion Instability Reduction

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF181026

    Combustion instability is an ongoing concern for military propulsion systems such as augmented gas turbine engines. Augmentor screech can limit the performance of military aircraft, and can cause durability issues or even catastrophic failure if it occurs. Modern augmentors have close-coupled fueling using simple round injectors to minimize manufacturing cost. In a jet-in-crossflow injector, liqui ...

  3. Shallow Water Bathymetric Survey Systems

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 829

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Ship groundings can cause sever environmental damage to the delicate ecosystems such as coral reefs, seagrass beds, and beaches. At present, survey work is performed by hand – a method that is inefficient and difficult to perform reliably. Improved bottom survey tools are clearly needed to evaluate the extent and type of damage and assist in determining remediation efforts. ...

  4. Autonomous Meteorological Measurement System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 8212

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: NOAA and the National Weather Service maintain an immense network of automated maritime, surface, and upper-air observing stations throughout the world and at great expense. These automated stations provide regularly updated data for both short-term weather prediction and long-term climate models. Maritime and surface observations occur as frequently as every 10 to 20 minutes, ...

  5. Clean Energy Source to Power NOAA Long-termObservation and Monitoring Networks

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 8211

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Creare proposes to develop a self-sustained small-scale power conversion system to power NOAA’s weather monitoring network stations located in harsh uninhabited locations. Our miniature heat engine will take advantage of the existing year-round thermal gradients found between water and air in Arctic regions. Our baseline approach is the development of a compact Turbo-Rankine ...

  6. Bottom Feeder- A Highly Maneuverable Autonomous Underwater Vehicle

    SBC: Tridentis Advanced Marine Vehicles LLC            Topic: 822

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Bottom Feeder will be a highly maneuverable Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV), with a tethered operations option and modular sensor bay, to support benthic optical surveys, coral reef mapping and health assessment, and be expandable for future survey operations. It will integrate a low drag hullform, a minimum of four degrees of independent motion control, a highly efficient ...

  7. Detection of Radio Frequency and Magnetic Field Bioeffects in Living Cells

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: AF18AT001

    Oceanit proposes to develop a system to characterize weak electromagnetic fields for the investigation of the effect of both thermal and non-thermal RF/magnetic fields on biological material, and to detect resulting biological impact of the energy deposited.

  8. Real-Time Thermal and 3-D Imaging in Gas Turbine Engines

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF181027

    Despite offering advantages to fields ranging from engine maintenance to engine development, a simple yet accurate system to inspect hot components in operating engines has been elusive due to the challenges of high operating speeds in a harsh environment. In the proposed project, Creare will develop an engine imaging system that will empower its users with real-time surface temperature and 3-D im ...

  9. Hypersonic Dimensional Scanning System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF181012

    Ablative coatings for hypersonics are tested at facilities such as the AEDC Range G and the Holloman High Speed Test Track. A test article is accelerated to velocity up to 18,000 ft/s in a relevant atmosphere and travels up to 10,000 ft. It is important to measure the coating erosion at multiple discrete points along the trajectory to characterize non-linear ablation response.Existing measurement ...

  10. Efficient Hydrodynamic Ram Test Chamber

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF181014

    Ballistic impact on an aircraft fuel tank skin generates a pressure pulse in the fuel that can cause catastrophic structural damage by hydrodynamic ram (HRAM). The Air Force RAMGUN facility simulates this impulsive hydrodynamic loading for experimental testing of candidate structural joints. A projectile fired by a gas gun impacts one end of a water-filled chamber, launching a pressure wave that i ...
