  1. Control Electronics for Space-Qualified Cryogenic Coolers

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: MDA17T003

    Future MDA space missions will utilize small spacecraft with correspondingly small, advanced sensor systems.Cooling of these sensors is required to decrease detector noise and increase detector sensitivity by maintaining the detector at a reduced operating temperature.The cooling system comprises a mechanical cryocooler and its control electronics, both of which are critical technologies to enable ...

  2. Cooling System for Laser Enclosure

    SBC: Mentis Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N18AT001

    The Navy is in need of a lightweight, reliable and efficient cooling system for a laser enclosure, with a specific focus on removing heat from a laser head. These types of systems are commonly employed on fixed wing and rotorcraft platforms. The first expected use of this technology will be on the H-60 platform as part of a lightweight electronics enclosure. Mentis Sciences, Inc. and the Universit ...

  3. Engine Particle Ingestion Classifier for Gas Turbine Engines

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N18AT023

    Particle ingestion can be a significant issue for military aircraft with gas turbine engines. Ingested particles can erode or foul engine components such as cooling holes, accelerating engine wear, and decreasing service intervals. To better understand engine wear, and to plan service intervals, the Navy is interested in developing sensors that can measure particle loading in real time onboard ope ...

  4. Jellyfish-Mimicking Profiling Float

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N18AT025

    Accurate oceanographic sensing of temperature, salinity, velocity, noise, and turbidity is important to broad scientific, commercial, and military applications. The subsurface environment directly affects animal migration, sonar propagation, global weather patterns, and the primary productivity that underlies the ocean food chain. Most current methods for subsurface sensing require stationing of a ...

  5. Metamorphic Buffer Layer Growth for Bulk InAs(x)Sb(1-x) LWIR Detectors

    SBC: QmagiQ, LLC            Topic: A16AT009

    Bulk InAs(x)Sb(1-x) is an infrared detector material that promises higher quantum efficiency than antimony-based superlattices in the longwave infrared (LWIR).This is due to the longer diffusion length of minority carrier holes in the bulk than in superlattices where they are localized.No native substrate exists for lattice-matched growth of InAs(x)Sb(1-x) material with LWIR bandgaps.So a key chal ...

  6. Advanced Technologies for Reducing Decompression Obligation and Risk

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: SB131004

    Despite over 100 years of research, decompression sickness (DCS) remains the mission-limiting factor in the design and execution of combat diving operations.Divers may spend over an hour decompressing after spending as little as ten minutes at the target depth.While decompressing, divers are limited in vertical mobility, making then susceptible to detection and threatening their survivability.This ...
