An Engineer’s Adventure at Sea

An Engineer’s Adventure at Sea

As an R&D engineer at Creare LLC, I have the opportunity to work on some very interesting projects.  Recently, I was privileged to spend two weeks on the Pacific Ocean in support of a Creare project internally named “Deep Sea Rankine”.  Working with the crew of the research ship R/V Roger Revelle, the remotely operated […]

Handheld Additive Manufacturing Technology for Structural Repairs

Handheld Additive Manufacturing Technology for Structural Repairs

The US Navy has an ongoing need for precise and effective methods for full dimensional, full-strength restoration of damaged aircraft components.  Damage can be caused by the installation, removal and handling of aircraft parts, as well as impact by foreign object debris. For smaller nicks, dings and dents, the goal is to restore the part […]

Heat Exchanger for Gas Turbine Exhaust Waste Heat Recovery

Heat Exchanger for Gas Turbine Exhaust Waste Heat Recovery

Creare has recently delivered a heat exchanger that was used to successfully recover waste heat from the exhaust gas stream from an RR-250 gas turbine engine.  Creare teamed with Innovative Automation Inc., Electratherm, and the United States Naval Academy to demonstrate waste heat recovery and conversion to electrical power at the USNA Gas Turbine Laboratory. […]

Creare to Exhibit Aircraft Carrier Technologies at Tailhook

Creare to Exhibit Aircraft Carrier Technologies at Tailhook

Creare will be attending the Tailhook Symposium again this year to showcase our aircraft carrier technologies that support US Navy aviation. The symposium is September 6-9, 2018 in Reno, Nevada. This year, we will feature two near-term procurement programs funded by Naval Air Systems Command. We will also exhibit other projects intended to further automate […]

Creare to Present at Turbine Engine Technology Symposium

Creare to Present at Turbine Engine Technology Symposium

Creare will deliver two presentations at the upcoming Turbine Engine Technology Symposium (TETS) on September 10-13, 2018 in Dayton, Ohio.  The TETS Symposium is a biennial forum where the United States turbine engine community gathers to review and discuss the latest turbine engine technology advances. An audience of approximately 1000 is expected, drawing participants from […]

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 […]
