  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 ...

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

    SBC: ADVANCED DEVICE TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "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 ...

  6. Development of a High Capacity 35 K Multistage Turbo-Brayton Cryocooler

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    "We propose to develop an innovative high capacity multistage cryocooler for dual cooling loads at temperatures of 85 K and 35 K. The cooler is based on proven turbo-Brayton technology that has been flight demonstrated and qualified for use on the HubbleSpace Telescope (HST). This technology will be adapted to the unique requirements of DoD infrared sensor applications at lower temperatures and ...

  7. Lightweight, Rugged, Portable Fuel Cell

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    "To operate sensors to verify future arms control agreements, inspectors will need a portable power source. The power source must be rugged, lightweight, reliable, adaptable to a variety of different sensor applications with different current/voltagerequirements, and simple to refuel in the field. We propose to develop a polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) fuel cell that is ideal for arms control ...

  8. A Cryogenic Heat Transport Loop for Space-Borne Gimbaled Instruments

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    "A high-performance cooling system for gimbal-mounted infrared sensors is a critical need for future space-based target acquisition and tracking systems. The optimal approach uses a high performance cryocooler remotely located on the spacecraft platformcombined with a high conductance, cryogenic heat transport system to exchange heat from the sensors to the cryocooler. The heat transport system ...

  9. Reduction of Motion Side Effects and After Effects

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    "Motion sickness has long been a problem during the deployment of military forces. The increased speed and agility of today's transports makes this problem even more acute. For the special forces who undertake rapid insertions using a variety of vehiclesin all weather, the incidence of motion sickness can compromise the mission and endanger lives. Despite intensive research, there are still no ...
