  1. 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 ...

  2. A CubeSat-Compatible Neutral Wind Sensor

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF121066

    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 on the same spacecraft. Flight-tested neutral wind sensors must be miniaturized to fit into these mu ...

  3. Assessment of Asymmetric Social Indicators using Non-Verbal Vocal Cues

    SBC: Mentio, Inc.            Topic: SB121002

    The objective of this proposal is to develop, implement and evaluate a set of accurate and robust algorithms specifically designed to capture and measure multilateral social interactions automatically through audio-based methods based on asymmetric data design. We propose to accomplish this by: 1) Developing a novel method that uses multiple microphones interfaced with a smartphone and placed on a ...

  4. Passive Optical Combustion Sensors for Scramjet Engine Control

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF121191

    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 future scramjet Full Authority Digital Engine Controllers (FADECs) due to the short time scales associate ...

  5. High-Temperature Superconducting Tape Connection System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N121049

    A method is needed to rapidly and reliably make low-resistance connections between high-temperature superconducting (HTS) tapes. These tapes are used in cables for Navy degaussing and power distribution systems. Superconducting cables are smaller, lighter, and more efficient than the copper cables used in legacy systems. However, there is no simple method for making tape connections in the field, ...

  6. A Nanophosphate Lithium-ion Chemistry Source for Crossover Power Sources

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N121067

    The MK-48 torpedo requires a temporary crossover power supply until main engine activation and alternator power becomes available. Due to the low energy density, high cost, and deteriorating availability of presently used thermal batteries, a suitable replacement power source using innovative energy storage concepts is desired. Creare proposes to develop an innovative high density power source bas ...

  7. Automated Rangefinding System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N121069

    The Navy requires improved methods for passive rangefinding using imagery obtained from photonics masts. Present passive ranging methods rely on manual measurement of object size requiring some advance knowledge of vessel size. Creare proposes development of a passive rangefinding algorithm that provides fully automated measurement of the range to distant targets. During Phase I, a prototype versi ...

  8. Field-Serviceable Superconducting Cable Housing

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N121077

    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 performance and increase the technology readiness level of key system components. The proposed work f ...

  9. Hostile Fire Indicator for Remotely Piloted Aircraft

    SBC: SOLID STATE SCIENTIFIC CORPORATION            Topic: AF121102

    ABSTRACT: Solid State Scientific Corporation (SSSC) is pleased to propose the design of a multi-threat hostile fire indication (HFI) system for remotely-piloted aircraft (RPA). The HFI system consist of a wide field of view sensor head that employs small multi-spectral imagers in the short-wave infrared (SWIR), with the spectral bands selected specifically for detection of small arms fire (SAF), ...

  10. 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 ...
