    SBC: Chip Design Systems LLC            Topic: AF18AT017

    We propose to develop an innovative concept of the high speed dynamic IRSP that combines components and devices from proven suppliers with novel system-level research topics from CDS and University of Delaware. Having previously built and delivered working LED IRSPs to users gives CDS a unique advantage. In line with system theme of the solicitation, our phase 1 research topics are focused on syst ...

  2. A Battery Pack Risk Assessment Tool

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N10AT014

    When many Lithium-ion battery cells are integrated into a large pack, the possible outcomes resulting from individual cell faults are complex and difficult to predict. Consequently, there is great interest in developing design tools to aid in the optimization of pack performance as well as to understand and mitigate the effects of individual cell failures from propagating to other cells or even th ...

  3. A Compact Swaging Machine for Aircraft Carrier Purchase Cable Terminals

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N06T023

    For the U.S. Navy, Creare is developing a Compact Swaging Machine (CSM) to attach arresting gear Purchase Cable terminals on ship. Our CSM utilizes three innovative features to dramatically reduce the size and weight of the swaging machine to make it usable in a shipboard environment: (1) a high pressure hydraulic system which minimizes the actuator size, (2) an efficient swaging schedule which re ...

  4. A Hybrid Machining System for High Performance Titanium Machining

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF08BT29

    Titanium alloys are desirable for high performance military systems due to their excellent strength-to-weight ratio and their ability to withstand high temperatures.  However, titanium alloys cannot be machined rapidly due to their low thermal conductivity and high strength.  These factors render titanium alloys difficult and costly to machine.  New manufacturing technologies are needed to redu ...

  5. A Magnetostrictive Energy Harvester for Shipboard Mechanical Vibration Sources

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N10AT020

    There are many efforts underway to develop distributed shipboard health monitoring sensors. These devices face strong opposition by fleet maintainers unless the requirements for power supply cabling and/or battery maintenance are eliminated. Consequently, methods for harvesting energy from local environmental conditions using heat, solar, and vibration are of great interest. As opposed to piezoele ...

  6. A Multi-Tiered Lithium-ion Battery Thermal Fault Mitigation Architecture

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N14AT006

    With the continued electrification of military systems, lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries are increasingly targeted for electrical energy storage due to their wide operating temperature range and exceptional energy density. However, Li-ion batteries operating in hostile thermal and mechanical environments typical of military aircraft are prone to catastrophic thermally-induced failures. Hazards inclu ...

  7. A Multi-Tiered Lithium-Ion Battery Thermal Fault Mitigation Architecture

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N14AT006

    With the continued electrification of military systems, lithium-ion (Li ion) batteries are increasingly targeted for electrical energy storage due to exceptional energy and power density. However, Li ion batteries operating in hostile thermal and mechanical environments typical of military aircraft are prone to catastrophic thermally-induced failures. Hazards including loss of power, fire, and exp ...

  8. A Multiscale Modeling and Simulation Framework for Predicting After-Burning Effects from Non-Ideal Explosives

    SBC: Reaction Engineering International            Topic: N10AT002

    The primary objective of the proposed effort is to develop a validated computational tool to predict the afterburning of non-ideal munitions containing metal and hydrocarbon fuels. The activities outlined devise a well-coordinated collaboration among researchers from Reaction Engineering International (REI) and the State University of New York at Buffalo (UB). The activities proposed will build on ...
