  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 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  8. A Low-Cost IR-Enhanced Video System for Early Obstacle Warning

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    More than 6,000,000 auto accidents occur in the U.S. each year, with about one third resulting in injury and 40,000 resulting in fatality. Approximately thirteen percent of these crashes involve pedestrians. A much broader group of generalized roadway obstacles including pedestrians, other automobiles and non-fixed objects, is responsible for over ninety percent of the accidents. A reasonably p ...

  9. Photonic Devices on Si Using SiGe Interlayer Technology

    SBC: AMBERWAVE SYSTEMS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    AmberWave Systems Corporation (ASC) proposes to implement its proprietary SiGe interlayer technology to demonstrate lasers on Si with emission in the visible spectrum. The technology employs ASC's proprietary SiGe interlayer processes to accommodate thelattice-mismatch and thermal expansion differences between GaAs and Si. In conjunction, ASC has established expertise in the growth of antiphase- ...
