The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Rugged Recess Drive System for Flathead Threaded Fasteners

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    One hundred degree flathead recess machine screws used to secure aircraft panels suffer unacceptable failure rates during removal for maintenance and repair activities. We propose an innovative recess drive system, including the fastener recess and mating tool bit, which greatly increases removal torque capability and reduces the probability and severity of damage during fastener removal. Generou ...

  2. Intelligent Heat Flow Control for (Cd,Zn)Te Crystal Growth

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    Improvement in the quality, size and cost of cadmium zinc telluride, (Cd,Zn)Te, substrates is necessary in order to realize the high performance benefits of HgCdTe based infrared devices. To meet this need we propose an innovative feedback control strategy for vertical Bridgman (VB) crystal growth. Using a computational heat flow model we will formulate a control algorithm that will be coupled wit ...

  3. Low Weight Cryocooler For High Temperature Superconductor Antenna Cooling

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    Advanced anti-radiation missiles using large, high temperature superconducting antennas will require cryocoolers that can cool the antenna quickly with a minimum mass and volume penalty. We will develop a mixed gas Joule-Thomson (J-T) cryocooler with the load heat exchanger integral to the antenna substrate. The mixed gas J-T thermodynamic cycle is significantly more efficient than current singl ...

  4. Innovative Fabrication of 2D Ultrasonic Imaging Arrays

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    Current ultrasound images in mine warfare, biomedical imaging and non-destructive testing are limited by the use of linear transducer arrays which result in thick image "slices", errors from phase aberrations and primitive volumetric scanning capability. Two-dimensional arrays will overcome these limitations. Two-dimensional arrays have not been manufactured because of difficulty in fabricating t ...

  5. Compact Thermal Energy Recovery System for Intercooled Gas Turbine Incorporated

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    Our objective is to develop an innovative thermal management system for recovering waste heat from engines. The proposed system will tap the large quantities of waste hat from the intercooler of gas turbine engines and use a Rankine cycle to increase the power of core gas turbine, or to drive an electric generator to power auxiliary systems. The innovative aspect of this thermal management syste ...

  6. Low-Cost Cascade J-T Cryocooler with an Oil-Free Compressor

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop an inexpensive, high performance closed-cycle cascade J-T cryocooler. The cryocooler will be based on a high pressure ratio, oil-free, metal diaphragm compressor. This innovative compressor will be compact, inexpensive and extremely reliable. The compressor can either be used with single-stage mixed-gas or multi-stage cascade cycles. For a single-stage mixed gas cryocoo ...

  7. Imaging IR System for NDE of GaAs Wafers

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    The performance of lasers, solar cells, and other devices fabricated from doped GaAs wafers depends strongly on the quality of the underlying wafer. For best performance, the wafers must have uniform carrier concentration and low defect density. GaAs wafer manufacturers and users currently do not have a rapid, non-destructive way of measuring these parameters. As a result, GaAs devi ...
