Integral Suppressed Weapon Barrel
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Innovations Plus seeks to dramatically reduce hearing damage associated with small arms fire in the USMC. Noise induced hearing loss is on the rise for U.S. servicemen and women. In 2004, the VBA paid out more than $400 million for service related auditory disabilities. Scientific methods and processes will be utilized to research, design, build and test an Integral Suppressed Weapon Barrel (ISWB). Such a device must be small enough to utilize existing accessories without modifications yet big enough to meet expectations. Our team has the "know how" and the tools to solve this problem. The Co-Investigator's patented process can reduce typical barrel and suppressor weight by 35% without compromising structural integrity and increase heat dissipation by a factor of 3.7. The resultant product is lighter with an increased life span. Our T&E consultant is the best. Mr. Alan C. Paulson has published hundreds of articles and four books regarding suppressors. He will thoroughly evaluate our brassboard before it is delivered to the USMC for feasibility verification. Once commercialized, our ISWB will significantly reduce noise induced hearing injuries from small arms fire and improve the soldier's situational awareness. This will save millions of dollars each year.
