  1. 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, ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Compact Airborne Acoustic Transmitter for Buried Object Stimulation

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N121088

    Landmines and buried improvised explosive devices (IED) represent a clear and present danger to the modern U.S. warfighter. The ability to survey a potentially hazardous area from the air using an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV)-mounted optical acoustic system has the potential to greatly reduce causality rates. However, existing acoustic sources are inadequate to stimulate the earth at the necessar ...

  6. A Power Dense Modular Capacitor Charging Converter for Pulsed Power

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N113181

    Industrial medium-voltage capacitor charging converters are currently limited in applicability for future Electromagnetic Rail Gun (EMRG) systems by low-power density, undesirable charging profiles, and incompatibility with shipboard DC voltages, liquid cooling, EMI, shock, and vibration requirements. A need exists to provide improved medium-voltage, power dense, and modular electronics to meet th ...

  7. High Friction, Conforming Boat Capture and Transfer System

    SBC: C3I, Inc            Topic: N112135

    The boat transfer, launch, and recovery system proposed will utilize a system of composite moving ways, cradle, and configurable bouyant bladders, controlled by the Advanced Communication and Control System (ACCS) to safely launch, recover, and transfer a variety of boats ranging in size as a minimum, from 7 M to 11 M, with a variety of hull shapes and materials, including unmanned surface vessels ...

  8. A Low Cost Electromagnetic Induction Ground Fault Detector

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N112133

    Cabling faults can be difficult to identify and locate when a large number of interconnections are used such as in the shipboard Machinery Control System. Ungrounded systems further complicate diagnosis, since signal voltages and currents are small amplitude. It often takes a considerable amount of time to identify and locate the fault, and the equipment capability can be substantially reduced whi ...

  9. Lightweight Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) Shielding System for Aircraft Avionics

    SBC: Nanocomp Technologies Inc.            Topic: N112097

    A key technology enabler for next generation EMI shielding applications is low loss, lightweight, flexible, conductive carbon nanotube (CNT) tape. The primary goal of this effort is to determine the optimal geometry for a CNT based EMI shield to provide equivalent shielding effectiveness of cable harnesses and other electronics on the V-22 Osprey, while maintaining a maximum weight savings. The ap ...

  10. Novel Sensor for Real-Time Particle Loading Measurements in Operational Gas-Turbine Engines

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N112088

    Sand and dust ingestion can be a significant issue for military aircraft operating in desert environments. For gas-turbine engines, ingested sand erodes engine components such as turbine blades, accelerating engine wear. Currently, no operational systems exist for tracking sand and dust loading in gas-turbine engines. We propose to develop an Optical Particle Counting, Sizing, and Composition (OPC ...
