Creare Makes Improved Flight Deck Hearing Protection a Reality

Creare Makes Improved Flight Deck Hearing Protection a Reality

Comfortable and effective head and hearing protection is necessary for Navy personnel working in high noise environments like a carrier flight deck or the well deck of amphibious ships. Creare has recently received funding to further productize its commercially available helmet into an improved flight deck cranial called Triple Hearing Protection (THP). This new safety […]

Advanced Manufacturing of Nuclear Power Fuel Pins

Advanced Manufacturing of Nuclear Power Fuel Pins

Future nuclear power plants can provide a large-scale source of environmentally benign power generation while improving plant safety and minimizing proliferation risks.   Some innovative reactor designs use uranium alloy fuel pins made with annular geometries that reduce fuel temperature and swelling compared to solid pins. To realize these benefits, high volume advanced manufacturing methods are […]

Heavier Astronauts Have Higher Risk of Post-flight Eye Changes

Heavier Astronauts Have Higher Risk of Post-flight Eye Changes

The results of a research project led by Dr. Jay Buckey of Dartmouth College have just been published, as described in this American Journal of Physiology press release.  The findings suggest that changes in the eye that occur during spaceflight may be related to how much an astronaut weighs. The study is published ahead of […]

Creare Developing 4K Cryocooler for Tactical Applications

Creare Developing 4K Cryocooler for Tactical Applications

Superconducting electronics and spectral-spatial holography have the potential to revolutionize digital communications, but must operate at cryogenic temperatures, near 4 Kelvin. Liquid helium is undesirable for military missions due to logistics and scarcity. Commercial low temperature cryocoolers are unable to meet size, weight, power, and environmental requirements for many missions. To address this need, Creare […]

Unattended Aerial Sensor Platforms

Unattended Aerial Sensor Platforms

Imagine flying a lightweight low-cost drone. Challenging but doable. Now imagine doing that in the turbulent air-wake of a ship to measure atmospheric parameters. Harder. How about unattended? The Navy relies upon pressure, temperature, and humidity data to model electromagnetic propagation through the atmosphere, which dramatically improves accuracy of ship-based radar systems. NOAA (National Oceanographic […]

Software Helps Keep U.S. Ground Forces on the Move

Software Helps Keep U.S. Ground Forces on the Move

The use of mobile devices is exploding for communications, entertainment, navigation, information collection and dissemination, and mobile health, to name just a few areas. Creare’s software team develops applications for iOS and Android that provide robust user-friendly interfaces for managing and interacting with data on cloud-based servers and for connecting and interacting directly with custom […]

Atmospheric Aerosol Sampling Systems

Atmospheric Aerosol Sampling Systems

Creare is developing a low-power atmospheric aerosol sampling system that employs electrostatic precipitation for the Department of Energy (DOE). One application of this system of particular interest to the DOE is for sampling radionuclides. Collecting radionuclide aerosols from the atmosphere and measuring the isotopic composition is a well-accepted method for detecting, locating, and identifying uranium- […]

Making Batteries Safer

Making Batteries Safer

Lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries are excellent electrical energy storage devices for commercial and military platforms, but as demonstrated in some small consumer electronics, they can suffer catastrophic loss. One can imagine the damage potential in larger systems. To realize the benefits of these batteries in applications like electric and hybrid electric vehicles, directed energy weapons, and […]
