  1. A Superconducting Fault Current Limiter for Shipboard Power Systems

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N06134

    As the U.S. Navy moves toward greater shipboard electrical loads, advances in transmission, distribution, and protection technologies are becoming more important. In particular, as fault currents increase due to the use of generators with greater voltage and fault currents, circuit breakers with insufficient breaking or short duration carrying capacity are put at risk. Finally, as the U.S. Navy ...

  2. Talk Through Noise and Dosimetry System for Carrier Deck Crews

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N05095

    Face-to-face communication between crew members launching and recovering aircraft on a carrier deck is impaired by the high-noise environment. High-noise levels also mask the various audio cues that provide situational awareness. Effective communication and good situational awareness are keys to safe and efficient operations. Creare proposes a Talk Through Noise (TTN) system that will improve f ...

  3. High Temperature Superconductor Quick Disconnect

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N06158

    Superconducting degaussing, propulsion and power systems offer potential weight, size and performance advantages over conventional systems. High temperature superconductors enable superconducting operation at higher temperatures, reducing the size and complexity of the cooling system. Many of the required technologies for these systems are commercially available. However, new connector technology ...

  4. Battery Powder Production

    SBC: Erigo Technologies LLC            Topic: OSD05MT4

    Powder production is often the rate limiting step in thermal battery production. The current powder production technique for lithium-based alloys and electrolyte is costly, labor intensive, time consuming, and leads to highly variable product. Because of the extremely reactive nature of these materials, advances in this area are difficult because of the special care that must be taken in the sele ...

  5. Novel Tooling for High Speed, Precision Machining of CMCs

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N06T012

    Advanced propulsion systems for the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) aircraft require the use of advanced materials for longer life, reduced weight, and increased performance. Ceramic matrix composite (CMC) materials have the potential to realize these benefits; however, the high cost of finished CMC components make wide implementation impractical. To reduce these costs, new, innovative fabrication te ...

  6. A Portable Swaging Machine for Aircraft Carrier Purchase Cable Terminals

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N06T023

    The Navy is interested in a swaging tool that can be used to attach arresting gear purchase cable terminals on ship. Swaging is a well understood process, and there are many suppliers of adequately powerful machines. In fact, a large swaging machine is used at Lakehurst NAS to attach terminals to the cross deck pendants. However, these machines are too large and cumbersome to be used in the shi ...

  8. High Heat Flux Cold Plate for Cooling of Power Electronics

    SBC: MIKROS MANUFACTURING            Topic: N03055

    This Phase II SBIR project addresses the need for advanced thermal management technology for cooling solid-state power conversion devices on-board Navy ships. It is anticipated that the drive towards smaller electronic components and faster switching speeds will require a cooling technology that can dissipate in excess of 1,000 W/cm2 while maintaining junction temperatures below 125 C. In Phase ...

  9. Enhanced Realtime Millimeter Wave Imaging Using Hardware Acceleration

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: N06079

    While the need for effective millimeter wave (mmW) imaging systems is clear, there remains a significant gap in the technology needed to realize it, namely the ability to process and enhance mmW imagery in a real-time manner. This is particularly important because raw mmW images appear very fuzzy, are color mapped, and have regions of intensity that are not normally associated with visible and IR ...

  10. Advanced Lighting System Affordable Technology (ALSAT)

    SBC: C3I, Inc            Topic: N06056

    The Advanced Lighting System Affordable Technology (ALSAT) effort proposes to develop a low cost, high power, full color spectrum and full dimming level standardized LED light engine/fixture that is form, fit, function compatible with existing shipboard lighting configurations. The light engine/fixture will employ active real time spectral control that will provide repeateable and standardized out ...
