  1. III-V Based Focal Plane Arrays for Video-Rate Terahertz Imaging

    SBC: TRAYCER DIAGNOSTIC SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF08T006

    Owing to a unique set of intellectual property and core expertise, this Phase II team, led by Traycer Diagnostic Systems, will build and characterize a packaged, 16x16 terahertz focal plane array (FPA) for broadband video-rate imaging at frequencies up to 1.3 THz. Traycer’s competitive advantage is based on its record-performing detectors, novel antennas, and array architectures that permit a d ...

  2. Light Field Imaging for Dense Sprays

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N10AT027

    The performance of modern combustion systems used in propulsion devices (e.g., gas turbine main combustors, augmentors, rockets, etc.) is largely dependent on the mixing of fuel and oxidizer (e.g., compressor air, vitiated air, and oxygen). This mixing process, usually involving a liquid jet emanating into a gaseous flow followed by subsequent breakup and atomization, is critically important to ma ...

  3. Wireless, Wide Frequency Band Otoactoustic Emissions Probe

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N10AT032

    The nature and requirements of military operations lead to high noise levels, exposing military and civilian personnel to the possibility of noise-induced hearing loss. Otoacoustic emission (OAE) probes can assess the health of the inner ear by testing the response of the cochlea to various types of stimuli. The measurement of emissions at high frequency has the potential to detect noise-induced d ...

  4. A Magnetostrictive Energy Harvester for Shipboard Mechanical Vibration Sources

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N10AT020

    There are many efforts underway to develop distributed shipboard health monitoring sensors. These devices face strong opposition by fleet maintainers unless the requirements for power supply cabling and/or battery maintenance are eliminated. Consequently, methods for harvesting energy from local environmental conditions using heat, solar, and vibration are of great interest. As opposed to piezoele ...

  5. Multi-Stage Current Leads for Superconducting Power Transmission Cables

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N10AT022

    Legacy power distribution cables will not be able to meet the future requirements of Navy electric ships. While power distribution systems employing high temperature superconductors (HTS) have the potential to meet this need, further development work is required to improve the performance and increase the technology readiness level of key system components. The proposed work focuses on the current ...

  6. A Battery Pack Risk Assessment Tool

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N10AT014

    When many Lithium-ion battery cells are integrated into a large pack, the possible outcomes resulting from individual cell faults are complex and difficult to predict. Consequently, there is great interest in developing design tools to aid in the optimization of pack performance as well as to understand and mitigate the effects of individual cell failures from propagating to other cells or even th ...

  7. An Efficient 35 K Cryocooler Driven by Electrochemical Compressors

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: MDA09T007

    Next-generation missile defense systems will utilize infrared sensing technologies that will require efficient cooling at low temperatures. We propose to develop an innovative solid-state cryocooler that can provide cooling at temperatures below 35 K while rejecting heat at temperatures up to about 300 K. The cooler uses compact, efficient electrochemical compressors with no moving parts to enha ...

  8. Performance Enhancement for 4 K Pulse Tube Cryocoolers

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N10AT026

    Future military communication systems will utilize advanced superconductor digital electronics that will require efficient cooling at low temperatures near 4 K. We propose to improve the efficiency of pulse-tube cryocoolers by addressing the two primary performance limitations. These are operation in adverse orientations and performance of the regenerator at low temperatures. We will develop (1) a ...

  9. A Non-Contact Displacement Sensor for Estimating Sound Pressure Level in Pipes

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N10AT016

    The presence of noise in piping systems often serves as an early warning of mechanical problems such as faulty or cavitating pumps and valves, or boiling in cooling lines. Additionally, in many Naval environments, especially submarines, minimizing noise radiated from vibrating pipes is highly desirable. The ability to quantify the sound pressure level in fluid-filled pipes with an external sensor ...

  10. Reactive Flash Volatilization JP-8 Reformer

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A08T023

    Compact, efficient, and sustainable electric power generators are needed to provide electric power for deployed military operations. In order to meet logistical requirements, the military is seeking to convert combustion-powered systems to a common fuel:
