  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. Compact Radio Frequency-to-Optical Transmitter for Airborne Military Environments

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N191006

    In this SBIR effort we will develop an ultra-compact, high-speed, low RIN and high-power transmitter for high-performance RF photonic link applications based on our cutting-edge lithium niobate on insulator (LNOI) modulator. In phase I, we will design, fabricate and characterize a low Vp, push-and-pull LNOI modulator. We will study the optical couplings at the laser/modulator/fiber interfaces to a ...

  3. Flight Head and Hearing Protection System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N172120

    Aircrew on the E 2D Advanced Hawkeye are being challenged by exceptionally high head vibration and acoustic noise. This compromises crew safety, voice communications, and mission success. The aircrew need help. Research by the Navy and Creare shows that the aircrew helmet resonates at the aircrafts blade pass frequency (BPF), thereby exacerbating the vibration and noise experienced by the aircrew. ...

  4. Seamless Knitting for Military Protective Clothing

    SBC: PROTECTIVE TECHNOLOGIES SERVICES, INC            Topic: N182124

    Recent developments in machinery and flame-resistant (FR) yarn blends provide an opportunity to improve Sailor comfort, reduce heat stress, and maintain protection while reducing manufacturing lead-times, costs, and waste by utilizing novel seamless knitting technologies. The proposed effort will evaluate the feasibility of using 3D knitting with FR yarns and analyze the strengths and weaknesses o ...

  5. Advanced Battlefield Communications System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N182133

    Hearing is critical to the warfighter: threats must be heard, identified, and localized; a squad leaders commands must be heard and interpreted. All of this is challenged by battlefield noise, whether from continuous noise from ones vehicle or impulsive noise from incoming or outgoing fire. ONR seeks new advances in battlefield tactical communications technology. Creare proposes to develop a hardw ...

  6. A Wireless Hydration Monitor for Naval Aircrew

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N182114

    Naval aircrews face a difficult balancing act. Hydration is important to performance; however, relieving oneself in flight can often be a challenge. Operational observations suggest that aircrew may limit their fluid intake leading up to and during flights. Whether intentional or not, when combined with increasing mission lengths, heavy flight gear, and the low humidity environment, they may place ...

  7. An Effective and Durable Icephobic Coating for Turbomachinery Inlet Components

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N182115

    Creare proposes to develop novel icephobic coatings for F-35 turbomachinery inlet components. Our baseline approach explores the use of two easily applied silicone-based coating technologies specifically engineered for challenging lift fan and engine compressor geometries. Our integration leverages Creares decades of advances in turbomachinery development with the advanced aerospace coating expert ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
