  1. Multimodal Acoustic Tool for Inline Pipe Inspection

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 180PH1

    The United States has a vast network of pipelines used for fuel transport. This infrastructure, installed in 1950–1970, is one of the largest in the world. Yet poor/missing records of the materials used, combined with the overall age and associated environmental degradation effects, often results in unsafe operation. Current non-destructive inspection techniques are only capable of detecting mat ...

  2. Practical, High-Performance Recuperators for UAS Turbogenerators

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A17001

    Power and propulsion systems for small unmanned aerial systems (UASs) face increasing demands for high efficiency, high power density, and reliability. Small gas turbines offer high power density and excellent reliability but are typically less efficient than internal combustion engines. We propose to develop advanced heat exchanger technology that can be used to produce recuperators that will inc ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Direct Blood Volume Analyzer for Improvement of Combat Casualty Care

    SBC: Daxor Corporation            Topic: A18122

    Daxor proposes an automated, ruggedized, portable system for calculating blood, red cell, and plasma volumes, based on a comprehensive adaptation and reengineering of the current gold standard for volume measurement, the Daxor BVA-100.Significant improvements in portability (size, weight, and battery operation), logistics, speed, and ease of use are achieved. Whole blood is sampled directly from t ...

  5. Proactive Radar Resource Management with Adaptive Arrays

    SBC: Spear Research, LLC            Topic: A18120

    Today, the Army utilizes multiple radar systems with overlapping areas of responsibility to provide RF sensing for battlefield Air Surveillance (AS), Air Defense (AD), Counterfire Target Acquisition (CTA), and other missions. While each mission has unique challenges and requirements, enhancements in sensor hardware technology, including digital beamforming (DBF) and arbitrary waveform generation, ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Marking System for Durable Labeling of Munitions

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A18077

    Hand grenades require highly legible, long-lived identification markings that are resistant to wear and field chemicals. Creating such markings on grenades is challenging, especially when their surfaces are rounded and made of chemically resistant plastics. Creare proposes to develop an additive marking process capable of producing robust color markings on curved plastic surfaces with high resolut ...

  8. Automated Terrain Feature Characterization for Signature Modeling

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A15006

    High-fidelity representation of terrain morphology is a critical requirement for accurate modeling and simulation of infrared background scenes. The current state of the art in terrain representation for missile seeker systems and other military applications is based on digital elevation models, which are relatively coarse in resolution and have smooth contours that do not resolve the presence of ...

  9. Printable Materials with Embedded Electronics and Radio Frequency Components

    SBC: DeLUX Engineering, LLC            Topic: A16006

    To reduce size, weight, power and cost (SWaP-c), military platforms have been evolving towards a more integrated design approach that efficiently utilizes all available space. In fact, to accommodate limited space constraints many commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) systems will need to be replaced by custom designed and fabricated components. For radiofrequency (RF) electronic systems, this will requ ...
