Adaptation of Advanced Technology for Ordnance Surveillance to a Marine Asset Tag Tracking System

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DHS
Principal Investigator: Richard S. Pollack, Chief Technical Officer – (303) 443-6611
Award Amount: $99,519.00
Abstract:
In Phase I, Phase IV proposes to develop the overall architecture and design of a prototype RF system for shipping containers that will operate in the marine environment while being loaded stacked aboard ship, on board deck of a ship in a stack, unloaded, and moved and stacked in shipping terminals.… More

Nested RFID System of Integrated Active and Passive Tags and Readers to Improve Supply Chain Management

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Richard Pollack, Chief Technical Officer
Award Amount: $99,732.00
Abstract:
We propose the design of a nested RFID tag system that offers Naval supply chain efficiency improvements, including underway replenishment and present / future MPF support. System components include industry standard passive RFID tags (e.g., EPC Gen 2); commercially available RFID tag… More

Nested RFID System of Integrated Active and Passive Tags and Readers to Improve Supply Chain Management

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Richard Pollack, CTO
Award Amount: $447,335.00
Abstract:
This project will result in the development of an always available wireless node (AAWN) that serves as the central communication control connecting an expeditionary pack up kit wireless sensor network (WSN) and optional passive EPC RFID reader to wide area communications including SATCOM. The AAWN… More

Innovative Solutions for Propellant Temperature Sensing for Future Munitions

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Clayton Smith, Chief Technology Officer – (303) 415-0901
Award Amount: $99,694.00
Abstract:
A novel passive RFID temperature sensor that is attached or embedded in large caliber ammunition to automatically provide actual propellant temperature to fire control computers in real time.

Innovative Solutions for Propellant Temperature Sensing for Future Munitions

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2014 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Richard Pollack, Founder – (303) 443-6611
Award Amount: $999,951.00
Abstract:
In this project a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) temperature tag and reader system will be developed. The tag will be easily applied to large caliber ammunition such as artillery propellant. Readers will be attached to guns or be located in handling areas. When the propellant is passed near… More
