  1. A Novel Indirectly Cooled Broaching System (ICBS)

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A12014

    Tantalum alloy and silicon nitride gun barrel liners have demonstrated excellent corrosion resistance and wear characteristics for U.S. Army applications. The quality and accuracy of the rifling profile is critical; however, the processes and tooling needed to successfully rifle a gun barrel made from these advanced materials have not been developed due to the difficulty of machining the material ...

  2. Compact, Inexpensive, Microchannel Recuperators for Small Gas Turbines

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A12080

    Small manned and unmanned aircraft need advanced propulsion technology to increase mission capabilities and improve reliability. We propose to develop an innovative recuperator technology that can significantly reduce fuel consumption for small gas turbines. Our microchannel recuperators are built using advanced manufacturing techniques that will enable a compact, inexpensive recuperator to signif ...

  3. High Density Solid Hydrogen Storage for Long-Duration Soldier Power

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A10099

    Providing power for dismounted soldiers on long-duration missions remains a critical technical challenge. Polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) fuel cells convert hydrogen fuel directly to electric power and offer a lightweight and efficient power source for individual soldiers. However, technology for storing the hydrogen fuel is still too heavy to meet the Armys mission requirements. We propose to ...

  4. Neurological Head Simulator for In-the-Field EEG Recordings

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A10066

    Neuroscience is rapidly expanding beyond its traditional role in the clinic to a practical method of evaluating cognitive performance in the field. The transition of clinical neuroscience tools into operational environments is of particular interest to the military due to the need for soldiers to perform increasingly complex tasks under extremely difficult conditions. Successful transition into op ...

  5. 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)

  6. MEMS-Based North-Orienting System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A11085

    The Army uses Unattended Ground Sensors (UGS) for the location and tracking of enemy soldiers and vehicles. The sensors can often determine range and relative bearing to the signal source, but without knowing its own orientation, these data cannot be converted to source geo location and ground track. There is therefore a need for a sensor to determine the UGS azimuth, roll, and pitch relative to a ...

  7. MEMS-Based Sensor System for Gun Tubes

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A11090

    The targeting accuracy of mortar rounds is critically dependent on obtaining accurate gun barrel azimuth and elevation data to feed to the fire control system. Current barrel attitude determination is not sufficiently accurate and requires manual readouts. Creare proposes to build a sensor for the determination of azimuth and elevation using novel MEMS rate gyros and inclinometers. These highly ac ...

  8. Rapidly Deployable Lightweight Shelters for Austere Environments

    SBC: NEMO Equipment, Inc.            Topic: A11099

    There is a need for developing a new generation of lightweight, rapidly deployable semi-permanent infrastructure to support the Armys transition to a Modular Force. Existing metal frame and airbeam designs, notwithstanding their many innovations, fail to take full advantage of the weight savings possible with a stressed skin approach to tent structure. In current designs, loads from wind and snow ...

  9. A Modular Silicon Carbide Based Electrical Distribution Unit

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A11139

    Upgrades to the Bradley and Stryker vehicles and concepts for a next-generation ground combat vehicle require substantial expansion of the electrical power generation and distribution system. The upgrades must be implemented within very tight spaces, and this requires technology advances such as higher operating temperature and power density and increased interoperability within the vehicle. Cre ...

  10. Advanced Vision & Position Acquisition System (AVPAS)

    SBC: INSIGHT TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: SOCOM04005

    Our goal is to develop a single device or modular group of devices weighing less than three pounds that can provide all of the functionality required for individual dismounted special forces for surveillance, small arms fire control, and tactical network connectivity. This challenge requires expertise not only in each of the individual modules for day sights, night vision, range finding, GPS, com ...
