Combining judgment and sophisticated analytical and experimental methods, we have a reputation for skill and creativity in the solution of difficult problems.
Every Day, Creare Delivers High-quality, Cutting-edge Research
For over 50 years, world-class engineers have gathered in a bucolic setting near Dartmouth College, the Thayer School of Engineering, and the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center to solve problems and bring ideas from the drawing board to real-life use. Our efforts have resulted in new companies that dominate their market segment to solutions that have enabled the exploration of Mars and deepest reaches of the universe. You can depend on Creare's proven ability to innovate to deliver the competitive advantage and to develop new products in a shorter time-to-market.
Creare-developed solutions routinely exceed our industry and government customers' expectations. The commericalization paths for our innovations include licensing, delivery of specialized products, and highly successful spin-off companies.
CREARE IS AN IDEAL PARTNER FOR US.
After working with Creare on many projects, I truly value their responsiveness and professionalism. They apply innovative technologies to challenging applications, while consistently delivering outstanding engineering and expertise across a wide range of disciplines.
—John Johnston, President/CEO StarRotor

Hearing impairment is widespread – approximately 15% of American adults report some degree of hearing trouble. Yet, only 4 in 10 people with moderate-to-severe hearing loss use amplification (i.e., a hearing aid). And less than 1 in 10 people with mild hearing loss use some kind of amplification*. Clearly, there is room for improved rehabilitation […]
The Defense Manufacturing Conference (DMC) is a four-day gathering of top government and industry leaders and manufacturing subject matter experts. The 2016 conference agenda covered strategic directions and funding opportunities, as well as briefings on the latest innovations in support of defense manufacturing priorities. Plenary keynotes included “Challenges of Sustaining and Modernizing the DoD/Army”, a […]
A group of bewhiskered Creare staff gathered for this photo to document their month-long abstention from facial grooming. The goal of No-Shave November is to grow cancer awareness “by embracing our hair, which many cancer patients lose, and letting it grow wild and free.” Participation grew from 14 piliferous employees in 2015 to 27 hirsute […]
Increased mission endurance is a critical requirement for many unmanned air vehicles. Advanced recuperators can reduce fuel consumption and significantly expand the mission envelopes for gas turbine-powered UAVs. The recuperator recycles heat from the exhaust stream and adds it to the compressed air entering the combustor. Creare has developed an innovative recuperator design that enables […]
The goal of No-Shave November is “to grow awareness by embracing our hair, which many cancer patients lose, and letting it grow wild and free.” Participants donate the money they would typically spend on shaving and grooming to educate about cancer prevention, save lives, and aid those fighting the battle. A large group of Creare […]
One technical challenge in achieving stealth is that the aircraft surface, often referred to as the outer mold line (OML), must be “smooth.” Attaching the panels that make up the OML, however, requires lots of fasteners – tens of thousands per plane! Each fastener needs to be installed, filled, and painted. This process is conceptually similar to filling screw holes in drywall, except that almost all OML surfaces […]
Many advanced electronics and photonics systems for future spacecraft and military aircraft, including phased array detectors, radar systems, and fiber laser systems, require effective cooling at very uniform temperature over large areas. Many of these cooling needs can be addressed only with advanced Thermal Management Systems (TMSs). Creare has been actively developing innovative solutions for […]
Separable Thermal Mechanical Interfaces (STMIs) are found in advanced digital and analog electronics that are used in space and military systems that are sealed, have little airflow, or must operate at high altitudes. An STMI comprises an electronic card, chassis, and card lock; the card lock provides a thermal interface between a printed circuit board and the side wall of a chassis, from which […]
