  1. 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 ...

  2. Efficient Arrays for Generating Light Emission (EAGLE)

    SBC: Chip Design Systems LLC            Topic: AF16AT22

    With today's IRLED devices, >99.4% of input electrical power is converted into parasitic/waste heat. Moreover, as the local temperatures of the pixels increase due to the generated heat, IRLED optical efficiency is further reduced. Overall this severely limits the number and intensity of array pixels that can be simultaneously operated at high apparent temperatures. In Phase 2, we focus on develop ...

  3. A Reconfigurable Machining Center for Depot Productivity Enhancement

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF161019

    Current depot-level manufacturing systems are not responsive to changing requirements and flexible specifications. The serial arrangement of individual work cells results in a lengthy timeline to complete the critically-needed part; thus, critical assets

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Optical System for High-Speed 3D Velocimetry

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF161071

    Unsteady processes, such as vortex shedding and local extinction, play a key role in augmentor stability.These processes occur on fast timescales, and can involve complex, three-dimensional (3D) structures.To fully elucidate unsteady processes, such as flame ignition and blowout, fast diagnostics that can provide information over a 3D volume are needed.In this research program, we are developing a ...
