  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. A Small Passively Cooled Inverter

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A16088

    Although there are many DC AC inverters available on the market, inefficiency and legacy semiconductor technologies require active thermal management and large package sizes.Creare proposes to develop a very small and passively cooled inverter that reduces size while improving efficiency and reliability.During Phase I, we developed a conceptual design and evaluated key aspects with analysis and ta ...

  6. Low Cost Cryocooler Control Electronics for Small Space Platforms

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: S1

    Many of NASA’s future space science missions will utilize small spacecraft, and many of these missions will require cryocoolers for cooling detectors, sensors, shields, and telescopes.  For Class C and D missions, the cryocooler technical requirements for performance, size, and mass, coupled with the programmatic requirements for minimal cost and development time, are extremely challeng ...

  7. Open Water- A Citizen Science Monitoring Platform

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 833

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Ensuring the health of coastal marine ecosystems has emerged as one of the primary environmental concerns of this century. Frequent monitoring of water quality is required to establish baseline levels and enable early detection of problems. Citizen science programs have been shown to provide a highly effective method of monitoring water quality. Creare is developing an open-sou ...

  8. Camera-based Examination of Risk via Behavioral Evaluation with Remote Underwater Surveillance

    SBC: Forever Oceans Corporation            Topic: 841

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Commercial marine aquaculture operators face many operational hazards including disease, predators, husbandry operations, and environmental changes. Most of theses risks are only identified with constant surveillance and physical presence at a farm site. However, human observation of risk factors is expensive, slow, and sometimes ineffective. Sensors are available to monitor in ...

  9. A Compact and Agile Fixed-Wing UAS for VTOL Shipboard Operations

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 832

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Commercially available unmanned aircraft systems (UASs) are not well designed to meet requirements for many atmospheric measurement applications, including deployment from ships, long endurance, and low cost. Existing multi-rotor systems suffer from limited payload and endurance. Existing fixed wing systems offer improved endurance and payload, but require significant support h ...

  10. Manual and Automated Marine Weather Observations Using Smartphones

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 826

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Accurate marine weather nowcasts and forecasts are critical requirements for mariners to maintain situational awareness and ensure safe navigation for vessels, passengers, crew, and cargo. To best achieve this, reliable observations of atmospheric and sea conditions must be available at high spatial and temporal coverage. Unfortunately, existing approaches for marine weather ob ...
