On June 21st, the 62nd anniversary of the company, Creare celebrated the lives and contributions of three of its former presidents: Bob Dean, Peter Runstadler, and Paul Rothe. The commemorative luncheon brought together the families of the former presidents with past and current employees to honor the men who helped shape the company, our community, […]
Aircraft carrier flight decks are dynamic, dangerous, and loud. Creare’s Hearing Protection Helmet (HPH) protects sailors and marines from hearing loss and head injury better than their existing equipment. Creare is currently preparing its first deliveries of the HPH to the US Navy on a low rate initial production contract and was just awarded a […]
Creare and the Two-Phase Flow and Thermal Management Lab at Case Western Reserve University have teamed to measure heat transfer and develop new correlations for boiling heat transfer in cryogenic fuel tanks. This work supports modeling and design for efficient propellant storage and transfer in future exploration spacecraft and has been published in the International […]
On May 26, 2023, NASA announced selection of the National Team, led by Blue Origin, to develop a human landing system for the agency’s Artemis V mission to the Moon. Through Artemis, NASA will explore more of the Moon than ever before, uncovering more scientific discoveries, and preparing for future astronaut missions to Mars. Creare […]
Photo: Creare technology helps maintain the purchase cables that enable aircraft to land on carrier decks. Creare successfully delivered two pre-position tools (PPTs) to the U.S. Navy for maintaining the purchase cables used for aircraft landing on carrier decks. PPTs are used to insert the end of a Purchase Cable (PC) into a PC terminal before […]
Creare is working with NASA to develop innovative drones for planetary exploration missions. Our novel ring-wing design enables simple takeoff and landing in vertical flight mode combined with long range flight in horizontal fixed-wing mode. Prototypes are under development for use on Venus and Titan. Recent papers (here and here) described this work in more […]
Creare is developing a new dosimeter to accurately assess hazardous noise exposure for individuals working in environments with both loud ambient and impulsive noise in military and industrial settings. Read more here.
Creare is working with industry partners and the U.S. Department of Transportation to develop a prototype, autonomous system that can deploy roadside hazard markers around a stopped vehicle. Our Automated Maker Deployment for Autonomous Trucks (AMDAT) system will support the development and deployment of autonomous vehicles by enabling them to meet regulatory and safety requirements.
Creare’s high-speed, high-efficiency, long-life circuit breakers will protect personnel and equipment from electrical faults in next-generation electric and hybrid electric vehicles. Our Gallium-Nitride Solid State Circuit Breaker (GaN SSCB) offers much higher performance in high-power, DC electrical power systems than conventional electro-mechanical devices. These power systems are critical for next-generation military combat vehicles that are […]
Creare has developed and demonstrated a high-efficiency, high-capacity reverse-Brayton cryocooler for zero-boil-off storage and liquefaction of hydrogen at 20 K. Our cooler provides over ten times more refrigeration at 20K than competing coolers and is a key enabling technology for future space exploration missions. Our paper at the 2020 International Cryocooler Conference describes this ground-breaking […]
