  3. Accurate Position Location Information in GPS-Denied Forests and Jungle Environments

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A16031

    Maintaining accurate position location information (PLI) during operational missions is a critical requirement for the dismounted soldier.This requirement is unmet in heavily forested and jungle environments where GPS reception is unavailable due to dense canopy cover.In such environments, soldiers must determine their location by using visual landmarks, or by seeking open clearings where Global P ...

  5. Sea State Prediction System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N172123

    Safe operation of the current Navy lighterage system can be performed in Sea State 3 and below. At present, sea state estimation is made by Navy personnel and is dependent on their level of experience.Creare proposes to develop a Sea State Predictor (SSP) to provide a more accurate and reliable determination of the current sea state. The system relies on measurement of heave of the warping tug as ...

  6. Adaptive Circumvention and Recovery Architecture for Radiation Effects Survivability

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N172138

    Electronics in ICBMs and other guided ordnance delivery vehicles are held to high design standards for performance and reliability. Adding complexity to their design, it is necessary to implement components and circuits to withstand highly energetic particle events associated with nuclear detonation. Creare proposes a concept to employ a rapid circumvention and recovery (C&R) strategy to enable el ...

  8. Carbon Nanotube Windshield Heater

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N182103

    Creare is proposing to develop a heater utilizing carbon nanotubes (CNTs) that will have high temperature uniformity and high optical transmission with low glare. By creating a variable effective sheet resistance across the windshield, we will be able to produce a robust design that can be flexed and easily scaled up to a production environment. In Phase I, we will fabricate and test a coupon size ...

  9. Robust Catapult Launch Control Electronics

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N161014

    Aircraft carrier control systems rely upon many sensors and signal processors to ensure safe and efficient aircraft launch and recovery. As one example subsystem, Digital End Speed Indicators (DESI) use reluctance sensors mounted within the catapult trough to determine aircraft end speed during launch. The DESI was developed in the 1980s, and recent reliability problems have highlighted the need f ...

  10. A Novel System for On-Site Structural Restoration Methods for Aircraft Components

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N162087

    Navy aircraft components require constant repair due to damage from field operations. In most cases, the damage is due to maintenance occurrences or service, due to Foreign Object Debris (FOD). Although the damage appears to be minor, the components need to be sent back to a Navy depot for disposition and repair, which is usually comprised of blending away the damage and substantially reducing the ...
