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 […]

Learning About Hearing – The Fun Way

Learning About Hearing – The Fun Way

How do you entice young people to study science? Make it a computer game. While admittedly not an original idea, Creare is working on building such a game in one of our clear areas of expertise: audiology. We teamed with Strangeheart Games and Dangerous Decibels to create a game called Song of the Starbird to […]

NASA Funds Creare to Design Novel Refrigerant Pump

Creare LLC, a leading developer of energy and fluid systems, has been awarded NASA funding to develop a reliable and vibration-free liquid pump.  The pump will be used in an advanced two-phase pumped loop system.  Such systems enable precise thermal control of instruments and electronics in outer space. NASA’s future remote sensing science missions require […]

Creare Wins DOE Funding to Develop Low-Cost Water Desalination System

Creare Wins DOE Funding to Develop Low-Cost Water Desalination System

Creare LLC, a leading developer of energy and fluid systems, received a new contract from the US Department of Energy (DOE) to develop a low-cost desalination system driven by hydrokinetic power. Creare’s innovative technology can dramatically reduce the manufacturing and deployment costs of hydrokinetic power converters for ocean and tidal currents.  The low-cost water desalination […]

Creare Awarded NASA Contract to Develop Low Vibration Cryocooler

Creare Awarded NASA Contract to Develop Low Vibration Cryocooler

Creare, a leading developer of cryogenic components and systems, has received a new contract from NASA.  The SBIR Phase II award from NASA Shared Services Center will fund the further development of a 10 K multi-stage cryocooler with very low vibration. Advanced space borne instruments require cooling at temperatures of 10 K and below. Potential […]

Creare Applies Its Turbomachinery Expertise to Hovercraft Lift Fan

Creare Applies Its Turbomachinery Expertise to Hovercraft Lift Fan

Creare’s skills in turbomachinery development are being leveraged by the US Navy to improve the next generation of hovercraft. The Navy uses air cushion vehicles to quickly transport troops and equipment from larger transport ships to land. The Ship to Shore Connector (SSC) is the evolutionary replacement for the existing fleet of Landing Craft Air […]
