The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. 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 ...

  2. Hypersonic Dimensional Scanning System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF181012

    Ablative coatings for hypersonics are tested at facilities such as the AEDC Range G and the Holloman High Speed Test Track. A test article is accelerated to velocity up to 18,000 ft/s in a relevant atmosphere and travels up to 10,000 ft. It is important to measure the coating erosion at multiple discrete points along the trajectory to characterize non-linear ablation response.Existing measurement ...

  3. Efficient Hydrodynamic Ram Test Chamber

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF181014

    Ballistic impact on an aircraft fuel tank skin generates a pressure pulse in the fuel that can cause catastrophic structural damage by hydrodynamic ram (HRAM). The Air Force RAMGUN facility simulates this impulsive hydrodynamic loading for experimental testing of candidate structural joints. A projectile fired by a gas gun impacts one end of a water-filled chamber, launching a pressure wave that i ...

  4. Robust Fuel Injectors for Combustion Instability Reduction

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF181026

    Combustion instability is an ongoing concern for military propulsion systems such as augmented gas turbine engines. Augmentor screech can limit the performance of military aircraft, and can cause durability issues or even catastrophic failure if it occurs. Modern augmentors have close-coupled fueling using simple round injectors to minimize manufacturing cost. In a jet-in-crossflow injector, liqui ...

  5. Real-Time Thermal and 3-D Imaging in Gas Turbine Engines

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF181027

    Despite offering advantages to fields ranging from engine maintenance to engine development, a simple yet accurate system to inspect hot components in operating engines has been elusive due to the challenges of high operating speeds in a harsh environment. In the proposed project, Creare will develop an engine imaging system that will empower its users with real-time surface temperature and 3-D im ...

  6. Development of a Fuel-Lubricated Bearing for UAV Engines

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF181035

    Small aerial unmanned vehicles (UAVs) are vital for a wide variety of military missions and have experienced increases in operational requirements that have outpaced their capabilities. The propulsion system is a key design constraint in any UAV, and current small gas turbines for these vehicles are limited by the conventional oil-lubricated rolling element bearings used to suspend their high-spee ...

  7. Establishing and Maintaining Mission Application Trust in a Shared Cloud

    SBC: SOLID STATE SCIENTIFIC CORPORATION            Topic: AF141040

    In December 2014, the DoD CIO directed that military services manage the migration of their respective applications from dedicated data centers owned and operated by the respective services, to the commercial cloud. This directive included processes and procedures to expedite the process and is a driving force behind the US Air Force (USAF) data center consolidation initiative. Consequently, the U ...

  8. Efficient, High-Pressure Ratio, Centrifugal Refrigerant Comperssor for Aircraft Thermal Management

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF171057

    Adaptive hybrid thermal management technologies will significantly enhance the capability and range of next-generation aircraft. A critical need for this future adaptive thermal architecture is an advanced lightweight, compressor technology that can achi

  9. Antimony-based LWIR detectors with low dark current and high quantum efficiency

    SBC: QmagiQ            Topic: AF171078

    QmagiQ, LLC proposes to fabricate and deliver for evaluation a number of small-format focal plane arrays (FPAs) of antimony-based strained layer superlattice (SLS) photodiodes with longwave infrared (LWIR) cutoff wavelengths ranging from 9 microns to 13 m

  10. A Novel Composite Repair Modeling System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF171112

    Many new-generation military aircraft are fabricated from high-temperature polymer matrix composites (PMCs). The ability to effectively repair these aircraft in the field requires the use of patches that can be cured to specific temperature ranges, with
