  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. Development of New Processes for the Refurbishment of Infrared Search and Track (IRST) Germanium domes

    SBC: COMPUTER OPTICS INC.            Topic: N/A

    "The result of Phase I is that Computer Optics Inc. successfullydesigned a process methodology that allows refurbishment ofGermanium Domes for the IRST F14 program at a fraction of thecost of an original dome. In addition to performing the processstudy, COI applied its methodology to a dome that had failed inthe field and refurbished it. This dome was delivered as part ofthe Phase I effort. In Ph ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Passive Inertial Navigation System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    "GPS-based inertial navigation systems provide a very accurate and cost-effective means of augmenting traditional inertial measurement units. However, the GPS signal is subject to jamming which can render the navigation system useless.The objective of this project is to design, fabricate, and test a navigation system for guided projectiles that does not rely on GPS. This system will provide accur ...

  5. Model-Based Design of a Steam/Heat Fabric Test Apparatus

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    Conditions of convective heat and steam pose serious threats to Navy fire fightingand damage control personnel, but the only test environments available for testingof protective clothing for such conditions are large and very costly to use. Theproposed convective heat and steam test apparatus will enable rapid and low-costevaluation of candidate fabric samples in the laboratory. The apparatus wi ...

  6. Combined Shock and Vibration Isolation Mounts Incorporating Novel Shock Dissipation Mechanisms

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    "A critical need exists for improved shock mounts to assure that equipment being developed under the Navy's Advanced Damage Countermeasures (ADC) program are well isolated and shock tolerant. These mounts must minimize shock transmission during extremecatastrophic events while retaining excellent vibration isolation characteristics under normal conditions of operation. Heretofore it has been imp ...

  7. Improved Primary Battery Reliability Via Non-Destructive Evaluation

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    "We propose a comprehensive non-destructive evaluation approach to primary battery quality management that takes into account (1) batteries in the weapons stockpile, (2) batteries in production, and (3) next generation batteries. Current evaluationpractices are limited to expending batteries and statistical modeling to extend those results. A deterministic evaluation of potential battery perform ...

  8. Active and Passive Reduction of Noise Caused by Bone Conduction to the Head of U.S. Navy Deck Crew Personnel with Helmets

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    "The goal of this project is to characterize the magnitude and transmission paths of bone-conducted noise, and then to use this information to design an effective Noise Reduction System (NRS) for use in crew helmets. US Navy personnel working on the decksof aircraft carriers operate in a very high noise environment and are at considerable risk for hearing damage. There is no technology available ...

  9. Improved Thermal Battery Assembly Techniques

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    "We propose to develop new thermal battery assembly techniques that will replace many of the manual assembly techniques currently in place at thermal battery manufacturing facilities. While it is realized that the manual assembly techniques are the causeof most battery quality issues and are thereby less than ideal, the mechanical properties associated with the battery components make automation ...

  10. Bone-Conducted-Noise Measurement Technique and Noise-Reduction System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    "The goal of this project is to characterize the magnitude andtransmission paths of bone-conducted sound to the cochlea and touse this information to design an effective noise-reductionsystem for crew helmets. The need for improved hearingprotection is critical, given the scale of noise-induced hearingloss in the armed forces today and the increased sound levelsassociated with the next generation ...
