  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  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. A Remote Egg-oiling System with Autonomous and Automated Target Object Identification for Nuisance Bird Management

    SBC: Hitron Technologies Inc.            Topic: N183142

    Leveraging our experience and expertise in robot development and system integration (hardware and software) as well as deep learning for agricultural applications, Hitron Technologies Inc. (HTI) proposes to develop an Intelligent Remote Egg Oiling System (IREOS), with the collaboration of University of South Carolina (USC). The IREOS allows for effective nuisance bird management by performing auto ...

  6. 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. ...

  7. A Modified GMAW System for Distortion Reduction and Travel Speed Increase through Separate Heat Input and Deposition Rate Control

    SBC: ADAPTIVE INTELLIGENT SYSTEMS            Topic: N07211

    In traditional GMAW and modifications, the current melting the wire is the same as the current heating the base metal. To maintain a minimally acceptable productivity, the base metal heat input is typically much greater than the required to control the distortion at an acceptable or desirable level. In the modified GMAW proposed, a bypass torch is added to an existing GMAW system to bypass part of ...

  8. Highly Corrosion Resistant Aluminum Alloys: Innovative Processing Methods to Enhanced Corrosion Resistance (e.g., layered structures, etc.)

    SBC: ATI, INC.            Topic: OSD09C03

    Two different approaches will be investigated for producing aluminum alloys with a layer structure that have mechanical properties similar to Al 7050-T7 and Al 7075-T6 and greatly improved corrosion resistance. Layered aluminum alloys will be produced using the Novelis-Fusion™ casting process. This process is very cost effective and has been demonstrate on commercial products. The other appro ...

  9. Innovative Methodologies for the Development of a High Strength, Anodize-Free Corrosion Resistant, Aerospace Aluminum Alloys

    SBC: ATI, INC.            Topic: OSD09C02

    The objective of this program is develop high strength aluminum alloys ( as high strength as that of 7075-T6) that would not require anodization to achieve corrosion resistance. Among the Al alloy systems, only 7xxx and Al-Cu-Li alloy systems are capable of such a high strength level of 7075-T6 properties ( design minimum tensile yield stress of 75 ksi). Therefore, only these two alloy systems ...

  10. Ultra-High Heat Flux Condenser for Electronics Coo

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: OSD08EP7

    Temperature control systems for high-power electronics in future military platforms will need two-phase cooling systems, either in the form of two-phase pumped loops or vapor compression refrigeration systems. Either type of system will require a compact condenser to reject heat. We propose to develop an innovative heat exchanger that couples an extremely compact, microchannel condenser with a ver ...
