  1. Advanced Refrigerator for Cooling Cryo-Electronics

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N102178

    Superconducting electronics have the potential to revolutionize digital communications and to improve real-time situational awareness in the battlefield environment, but must operate at cryogenic temperatures. Commercial cryogenic refrigerators are large and inefficient and are unable to meet typical field requirements. Our approach is to develop a tactical hybrid cryocooler that is optimized for ...

  2. Protective Suit Environmental Control System (PSECS)

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N093160

    Protective suits that isolate a marine from the environment can also build up excessive internal heat and humidity, impairing performance and possibly leading to heat casualties. We propose to develop an innovative environmental control system that will maintain a cool, dry environment inside protective suits. There are two key innovations: (1) a novel cooling process that provides very high effic ...

  3. Flight Hearing Protection System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N111011

    Creare proposes a cost-effective upgrade to the Navy"s helmet for helicopter aircrews that will improve the hearing protection provided by this device. The upgrade will be engineered for the higher noise levels expected in the new CH-53K heavy-lift helicopter. We will focus on maximizing the passive attenuation provided by the helmet rather than introducing additional active electronics. We will a ...

  4. Turbo-Rankine Power System for Deep Sea Hydrothermal Vents

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N111071

    Hydrothermal vents emit large amounts of hot water, which has the potential to produce electric power. This type of power source can enable remote sea sensors, recharge autonomous underwater vehicles, and facilitate a variety of deep sea activities. Developing a power system for this application is challenging because the environment is extremely corrosive, mineral precipitation and biological act ...

  5. A Robust Heat Exchanger for Gas Turbine Exhaust Heat Recovery

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N111078

    Marine gas turbine engines are typically 30 to 40% efficient at full power resulting in 60 to 70% of the input energy being exhausted to the environment as waste heat. These engines are even less efficient at partial power conditions where they often operate. Bottoming cycles, such as organic Rankine cycles, can utilize this waste heat to produce useful work, improving overall efficiency by 10 to ...

  6. Small Integrated HFI Sensor for the AVR-2B


    "SSSC is pleased to propose the development and delivery of a Hostile Fire Indication Sensor (HFIS) based on the Phase I design concept. The resulting system will limit the number of circuit card assemblies to two: one for the short wave infrared (SWIR)

  7. Fiber Optic Grating Depth Sensor for Towed Array Applications

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    This project is directed towards the refinement and demonstrationof a robust high-temperature nonskid coating that can withstandrepeated flight operations associated with the AV-8B Harrieraircraft on the decks of Wasp-class Amphibious Assault Ships(LHDs). The Fleet has filed a series of Quality DeficiencyReports, Hazardous Material Reports, and Casualty Reports, whichdocument nonskid failures rel ...

  8. Non-cooperative Moving Target Recognition Using ISAR


    In Phase-I, a Fast Pattern Recognizer (FPR) System was evaluated as a future processor candidate for Navy fast-reaction, supersonic, stand-off weapons. The FPR will autonomously detect, identify, correlate, and track complex ship and land targets inhostile, high-clutter environments in real time. Because image correlation is computationally intensive, real-time processing must be accomplished by m ...
