  1. Improved Skirt System for Air Cushion Vehicles

    SBC: Kubota Research Associates            Topic: N171042

    Both the Deep Skirt and Advanced Skirt System material used on Landing Craft Air Cushion (LCAC) experience significant wear during normal operations, which require expensive, time-consuming maintenance repairs. The US Navy is looking for innovative new material and manufacturing method for skirt systems to improve it durability and reduces Total Ownership Cost (TOC). Rubber skirts experience two m ...

  2. Flight Head and Hearing Protection System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N172120

    Upgrades to the E-2D Advanced Hawkeye inadvertently resulted in higher acoustic loading at its propellers blade pass frequency (BPF). This frequency overlaps with vibrational modes of the standard fixed-wing aircrew helmet, the HGU-68/P. As a combined result, E-2D pilots are experiencing exceptionally large vibrational and acoustic (noise) loading, potentially compromising aircrew performance and ...

  3. Development of Explosive Feedstock for Commercial-off-the-Shelf (COTS) 3D Printers

    SBC: E&G Associates, Inc.            Topic: N171060

    Traditional manufacturing methods for producing warheads, propellants, and pyrotechnic systems are timely and costly. Additive manufacturing (AM) approaches offer one path of alternative manufacturing technologies. Among various technologies, powder bed fusion (PBF) is one promising approach. Hewlett Packards Multi-Jet Fusion printers utilize a unique PBF process that presents a desirable solution ...

  4. High Productivity Low Noise Abrasive Blast Nozzle

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N172134

    Navy vessels, along with other military, civil, and commercial equipment and structures, are routinely stripped by abrasive blasting in preparation for re-coating. Using existing nozzles, blasting generates continuous noise levels up to 145 dBA, and even with correctly worn double hearing protection, blasting operators are at risk of hearing damage. Noise induced hearing loss has become the most c ...

  5. MRI-Compatible Hyper/Hypobaric Chamber

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N101079

    Hyperbaric and hypobaric environments are known to have profound effects on the physiology of animals and humans.These effects can limit mission capabilities or, in some cases, even be life threatening.In other cases, these environments can induce very beneficial, sometimes life saving health effects.Even though the health effects of hypo/hyperbaric exposure have been observed for many decades, th ...

  6. Active Acoustic Monitoring System (AAMS) for marine life and hazard detection through integration of the Subsurface-threat Detection Sonar Network bro

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: N171065

    Scientific Solutions, Inc. (SSI), teamed with BAE Systems and Southall Environmental Associates, Inc. (SEA), proposes to investigate the feasibility of using commercially available active sonar to autonomously identify and track marine mammals from transiting SURTASS-LFA surface ships at ranges out to and beyond 2,000 yards. Active sonar has been proven effective to detect and track marine animals ...

  7. Plasma Gasification System for Waste-to-Energy Conversion

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N152097

    Responsible waste disposal has become an important challenge as the world population has grown, concern about the environment has increased, and energy costs have risen. Landfills are unsustainable and have potential to contaminate groundwater, while incineration consumes fuel and can produce hazardous airborne emissions. In response, we are developing a plasma gasification system that will enable ...

  8. Morphing-Duct and Twin Pumpjet Propulsion Concept Design

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N17AT019

    Existing 50-hp engines used on the Combat Rubber Raiding Craft (CRRC) do not provide the top speed, payload, and range characteristics necessary for missions requiring high speeds and low vibrations across a wide range of craft loads (e.g., light to heavy loading). Designing propulsors with high performance away from an optimum design point remains a difficult problem. Creare and our Research Inst ...

  9. Advanced Augmentor Ignition Modeling Tools

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N17AT003

    Reliable ignition is critical to the operational performance of augmented military engines. Augmentors must reliably ignite when thrust is needed or system (and pilot) safety could be compromised. Augmentor ignition is particularly challenging relative to other combustion systems because the ignition system must function over an extremely wide range of conditions. Optimizing existing igniter syste ...

  10. Advanced Compact Inductor for Sonar Applications

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N171086

    The Navy requires compact high-power inductors to match single crystal transducers to their power amplifier drives for efficient, compact sonar operations in Unmanned Underwater Vehicle (UUV) applications, where volume and power are at a premium. Enabling more efficient UUV sonar operation will increase vehicle operational availability. Creare proposes to develop advanced, compact power inductors ...
