  1. A Low-Cost In-flight Deicing System for Aircraft

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    The proposed innovation is a deicing system for aircraft leading edges using a high-efficiency, electrically actuated thin-film elastomer. The entire aircraft industry needs this technology to improve safety while minimizing the overall impact on aircraft weight and fuel consumption. We propose to use a low-cost, electrically actuated thin-film elastomer to break the ice bond in a manner similar ...

  3. Co-Located Dual Band (VLWIR1/VLWIR2) Focal Plane Arrays for Space Applications


    "We propose to develop Co-Located Dual Band (VLWIR1/VLWIR2) Focal Plane Arrays on Strained Layer Superlattices (SLS) Material. We propose innovative Al(x)Ga(1-x)As/InAs SLS layers to produce detectors for very long wavelength (22 um). The key features are:1) SLS Material Growth by Migration Enhanced Epitaxy (MEE) Technique. Type II SLS layers are grown with Migration Enhanced Epitaxy Technique by ...

  9. System for Optimization of Very Low Frequency Audio Signals

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    "Very low frequency (VLF) sonar signals are advantageous because target detection and tracking can occur at very large distances. Visual displays which transform the time-domain signals into the frequency domain and which average over time are currentlyused for target detection and tracking. However, averaging can mask important information about transients and other ocean acoustic events. Furt ...

  10. Disoriented Analysis and Prediction System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    Spatial disorientation is a significant problem in military aviation that has resulted in loss of life and aircraft. Creare is developing a Disorientation Analysis and Prediction System for use in pilot training, accident investigation, spatialdisorientation research, and ultimately as a cockpit-based warning system. The system is capable of determining whether or not the pilot is disoriented, m ...
