  2. 20/20 Immersive Display System Based on Eye Tracking

    SBC: OASYS TECHNOLOGY, LLC.            Topic: N07041

    This research program is concerned with the design and fabrication of a novel head-mounted display system which utilizes foveal imaging techniques in order to provide eye limited resolution within a very wide, immersive field of vision. The application includes a “smart” allocation of high resolution imagery which is tracked to the user’s gaze point. This creates a system which is very eff ...

  5. A Cryogenic Heat Transport Loop for Space-Borne Gimbaled Instruments

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: MDA05016

    A high-performance cooling system for gimbal-mounted infrared sensors is a critical need for future space-based target acquisition and tracking systems. A candidate approach uses a high performance cryocooler remotely located on the spacecraft platform combined with a high conductance, cryogenic heat transport system to exchange heat from the sensors to the cryocooler. The heat transport system ...

  6. A Fast Acting Solid-State Circuit Breaker for Electrical Power Systems

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: OSD08EP6

    Increased demands for electric vehicle performance have resulted in large power requirements and the potential for extremely large fault currents. This is true not only for over-the-road electric and hybrid vehicles, but also for ships and aircraft, which are increasingly moving toward all-electric propulsion. Without fast and reliable means to limit fault currents and isolate faulted sections, ...

  8. A High-Temperature Battlefield Fuel Vaporization Membrane

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A06173

    The Army seeks to standardize all equipment on its battlefield logistics fuel, JP-8. JP-8 is difficult to use for small-scale, low-power applications, however, since its low vapor pressure and complex composition inhibit complete vaporization. Existing methods for vaporizing logistics fuels require electric power, moving parts, or high temperatures. To address this need, Creare proposes to deve ...

  9. A High-Temperature Battlefield Fuel Vaporization Membrane

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A06173

    The Army seeks to standardize all equipment on its battlefield logistics fuel, JP-8. JP-8 is difficult to use for small-scale, low-power applications, however, since its low vapor pressure and complex composition inhibit complete vaporization. Existing methods for vaporizing logistics fuels are not sufficiently controllable to support highly efficient catalytic combustion processes, or impose un ...

  10. A Laser-Assisted Machining Approach for the High-Performance Machining of CMCs

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N08036

    Ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) are desirable for high-performance aircraft engines due to their excellent strength-to-weight ratio and their ability to withstand high temperatures. However, CMCs are expensive to machine due to their low thermal conductivity, high hardness, and abrasiveness. Creare’s innovation is a novel Laser-Assisted Machining (LAM) system for high-performance machining of ...
