  1. Strain Sensor for Real-Time Measurement in Parachute Canopies

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A17077

    The Army requires a capability for real-time, dynamic strain measurement in parachute canopies during flight. This capability will fill two critical needs. The first is to provide quantitative data to validate computational models and inform canopy design efforts. The second is to provide real-time feedback to automated flight controllers that guide unmanned payloads to a landing target. Existing ...

  2. Lightweight Thin-film Solar Cell with Periodic Optical Nanostructure

    SBC: Amberwave, Inc.            Topic: A17074

    AmberWave, Inc. has developed a method to bond an ultra-thin (18 micron) monocrystalline Si layer to a conductive and fracture-resistant supporting layer such as a thin steel alloy foil. With this UTSi (Ultra-Thin Si) technology we have integrated front and rear cell processes based on the world-record PERL (Passivated Emitter Rear Locally diffused) silicon solar cell design, and have demonstrated ...

  3. Development of an Automated Vascular Access Device

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DHA173003

    Vascular access is a critical and early step in the stabilization and treatment of critically injured soldiers and civilians. Traditional peripheral intravenous (PIV) access and central venous cannulation (CVC) access becomes exceedingly difficult in the field, particularly in patients who are volume-depleted from blood loss or dehydration, vasoconstricted, or hypothermic. We propose a self-contai ...

  4. Development of a Wearable Bladder Monitoring System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DHA172012

    Soldiers with spinal cord injury (SCI) face a lifetime of bladder dysfunction. Although the type and character of this dysfunction depends on the severity and level of spinal injury, many of these soldiers and veterans suffer from renal insufficiency, frequent and severe antibiotic-resistant bladder infections, and the emotional and social stress of unexpected bladder leakage. We propose that sign ...

  5. Contamination-Free, Lightweight, Helium-Rubidium Vapor Circulator for DPAL Systems

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: MDA12018

    Diode-Pumped Alkali Laser (DPAL) systems have great potential for missile defense and other applications. These systems require a uniform, steady, flowing mixture of helium and rubidium vapor at elevated pressure and temperature. Significant challenges exist because rubidium is a very reactive material. Our team has developed a contamination-free, hermetic circulator based on gas-bearing turbomach ...

  6. Submarine Shipboard Power Supply Bridge

    SBC: P C KRAUSE AND ASSOCIATES INC            Topic: N171075

    The objective of this effort is to construct and test a 40 kW UPS with at least 100ms of holdup time, integrated into a standard 19 inch rack mount enclosure with 4U (7 inch) height, and designed to meet electrical and mechanical/shock specifications required for naval shipboard application. Traditional UPS applications are typically not optimized for weight and volume, and utilize bulky lead-acid ...

  7. Flight Head and Hearing Protection System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N172120

    Aircrew on the E 2D Advanced Hawkeye are being challenged by exceptionally high head vibration and acoustic noise. This compromises crew safety, voice communications, and mission success. The aircrew need help. Research by the Navy and Creare shows that the aircrew helmet resonates at the aircrafts blade pass frequency (BPF), thereby exacerbating the vibration and noise experienced by the aircrew. ...

  8. Jet Engine Passive Optical Sensor

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF103219

    Combustion stability is an ongoing challenge for military gas turbine engines. Instabilities such as augmentor screech involve high-speed, 3D flow and flame structures. The mechanisms that control some combustion instabilities are poorly understood. Diagnostics that elucidate the mechanism(s) of combustion instability are needed to increase the robustness of current engines and to develop improved ...

  9. Open Call for Innovative Defense-Related Dual-Purpose Technologies/Solutions with a Clear Air Force Stakeholder Need

    SBC: URSA, Inc.            Topic: AF183005

    We will integrate our existing commercially viable UAV forensics capabilities into and adjacent to Medusa to enable the USAF to better collect and analyze CUAS test and operational data throughout the kill chain - acknowledge, detect, identify, locate, track, disable as well as investigate and integrate. This effort will also enhance Medusa C2 and provide an end-to-end use case for Medusa and beyo ...

  10. Advanced Cyber Range Integration, Management & Collaboration Tools & Services

    SBC: Hadron Industries, Inc.            Topic: AF183005

    This effort will modify an existing solution--the integration of a collaboration platform and a cyber range management platform--to provide a USAF cyber wing with tools and data tailored to their unique requirements. It will be the first such modification tailored to a unit's specific requirements, making this effort a proof-of-concept for future tailored tools built for other units.
