  2. Ultra-Compact Condenser with Built-in Air Flow Headers

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF173006

    Next-generation aircraft thermal management systems require advanced compact, lightweight condensers to reduce the overall size and mass of high-capacity vapor compression systems. To this end, Creare proposes to develop an ultra-compact, lamination-stack condenser with built-in air flow headers to substantially reduce the overall condenser assembly size and mass. The condenser has a unique config ...

  4. Development of bulk metallic glass components for spacecraft applications using thermoplastic forming

    SBC: Supercool Metals LLC            Topic: AF173014

    Ever increasing demands on space, aerospace and defense applications require non-traditional approaches to materials and processing methods. Bulk metallic glasses (BMGs) are unique materials that combine properties of ultrahigh strength metals with processability of thermoplastics, which is often paired with other attractive attributes, such as high resilience, fracture toughness, hardness, and co ...

  5. Hybrid Acoustic Emission and Guided Wave Inspection System for Radar Tower Structures

    SBC: Fbs, Inc.            Topic: AF161011

    A novel hybrid acoustic emission (AE) and guided wave (GW) inspection approach for radar towers inspection is presented. Keeping aging radar sites (many are over 50 years old) in good repair is important because they are critical intelligence components that provide advanced aircraft notification. This proposed work will continue development of new, patent-pending shear-type AE sensors, and apply ...

  6. Nonlinear Ultrasonic Guided Wave System for Detection of SCC

    SBC: Fbs, Inc.            Topic: AF161017

    Sudden structural failure caused by stress corrosion cracking (SCC) in aircraft components is becoming a severe safety threat to Air Force aircraft and other aviation vehicles. Detection of SCC often occurs late in the damage development cycle, in which fast-growing macroscale cracking has already developed. This significantly increases depot maintenance cost and can negatively impact aircraft ava ...

  7. Shallow Water Bathymetric Survey Systems

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 829

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Ship groundings can cause sever environmental damage to the delicate ecosystems such as coral reefs, seagrass beds, and beaches. At present, survey work is performed by hand – a method that is inefficient and difficult to perform reliably. Improved bottom survey tools are clearly needed to evaluate the extent and type of damage and assist in determining remediation efforts. ...

  8. Autonomous Meteorological Measurement System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 8212

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: NOAA and the National Weather Service maintain an immense network of automated maritime, surface, and upper-air observing stations throughout the world and at great expense. These automated stations provide regularly updated data for both short-term weather prediction and long-term climate models. Maritime and surface observations occur as frequently as every 10 to 20 minutes, ...

  9. Development of “Permit Wizard” Software for AssistedPermit Application Completion

    SBC: TOTAL QUALITY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 833

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: The objective of this project is to research the technical feasibility of designing a software tool “Permit Wizard” that will automate the process for aquamarine permit application submittal, review, approval/disapproval and issue (including collection of fees). Aquaculture producers are currently faced with slow, complex, and often confusing permitting processes that must ...

  10. Clean Energy Source to Power NOAA Long-termObservation and Monitoring Networks

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 8211

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Creare proposes to develop a self-sustained small-scale power conversion system to power NOAA’s weather monitoring network stations located in harsh uninhabited locations. Our miniature heat engine will take advantage of the existing year-round thermal gradients found between water and air in Arctic regions. Our baseline approach is the development of a compact Turbo-Rankine ...
