Award List:

Low Cost Manufacturing of Ballistic Helmets

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Francisco Folgar, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $69,021.00
Abstract:
One of the US Army's priority R&D areas has been focused on lightening the load carried by the soldier. Much of this concentrates on personnel body armor such as ballistic vests and helmets. Recent composite material developments using aramid fabrics coated with thermoplastic resins and graphite… More

Abrasion protection, ballistic tolerance, and laser protection for windows/sensor on rotary wing aircraft.

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / SOCOM
Principal Investigator: Francisco Folgar, Director
Award Amount: $99,485.00
Abstract:
Some of the United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) greatest concerns are to maintain the pilot's ability to see clearly and to provide to the aircraft occupants a greater degree of UV rays, laser and ballistic protection than being currently afforded. However, the weight penalty suffered… More

Abrasion protection, ballistic tolerance, and laser protection for windows/sensor on rotary wing aircraft.
