Abstract:

THE RESEARCH EFFORTS ASSOCIATED WITH THIS PHASE I SBIR PROPOSAL, AND ITS POSSIBLE PHASEII FOLLOW-ON, ARE EXPECTED TO EBTABLISH CONCEPTUAL FEASIBILITY AND DEMONSTRATED PRACTICALITY OF A NOVEL CONCEPT FOR PROVIDING POSITIVE COMBAT IDENTIFICATION AMONG DIVERSE FRIENDLY FORCES. THE ASSOCIATED POSTIVE COMBAT IDENTIFICATION DEVICE (PCID) CONCEPT INCORPORATES SESCO PROPRIETARY (PATENT PENDING) SW&RM HARDWARE/SOFTWARE WHICH HAS BEEN DEMONSTRATED UNDER AN EARLIER DARPA SPONSORED PROJECT. THE SIX MONTH PHASE I RESEARCH WILL: A) COORDINATE AND DOCUMENT EFFORTS TO FORMULATE A MULTI-SERVICE ASSESSMENT OF OPERATIONAL AND DOCTRINAL MERITS OF THE CONCEPT, AND B) ESTABLISH TECHNICAL COMPATIBILITY OF THE CONCEPT AS P(3)I TO EXISTING MILITARY SYSTEMS. THE PHASE I RESEARCH IS EXPECTED TO ESTABLISH SUFFICIENT TECHNICAL/OPERATIONAL/DOCTRINAL MERIT IN THE CONCEPT TO JUSTIFY ADVANCING TO PHASE II (SELECTED HARDWARE DEMONSTRATIONS). DURING THE PROPOSED PHASE I EFFORT, SESCO EXPECTS TO WORK CLOSELY WITH THE SPONSOR AND WITH MANY OF THE FOLLOWING ORGANIZATIONS: DARPA AND LABCOM - IFF/C(3)I ASPECT DEMONSTRATION INTERESTS; DCSOPS - ARMY DOCTRINAL COMPATIBILITY; USAF/TAC - AIR FORCE DOCTRINAL COMPATIBILITY; TACOM - VETRONICS AND OPERATIONAL CAPABILITY; AVSCOM - AVIONICS AND OPERATIONAL CAPABILITY; FORT HUACHUCA - ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT COMPATIBILITY; ARDEC-WEAPONS/ARTILLERY COMPATIBILITY; USAF/ASD - AVIONICS SYSTEMS COMPATIBILITY; USAF ADTC - WEAPON SYSTEM COMPATIBILITY; SPECIAL OPERATIONS FORCES; TRI-SERVICE PROJECT C(3)I OFFICE. THE PHASE I RESEARCH PRODUCT WILL BE A REPORT IN THREE PARTS: PART I - COMPATIBILITY OF THE CONCEPT WITH ESTABLISHED OPERATIONAL REQUIREMENTS AND DOCTRINE; PART II IFF/AVIONICS/WEAPONS/TROOP COMPATIBILITY; AND PART III - IDENTIFY PHASE II TECHNICAL DEMONSTRATION ISSUES. IF AWARDED, THE TWELVE MONTH PHASE II RESEARCH IS EXPECTED TO PROVIDE SELECTED HARDWARE AND TECHNICAL PERFORMANCE COMPATIBILITY DEMONSTRATIONS OF THE PCID CONCEPT FOR REPRESENTATIVE AVIONICS, VETRONICS, WEAPONS AND TROOP SYSTEMS. IT IS HOPED THAT AN ADDITIONAL PHASE III PROJECT FOR JOINT SERVICE OPERATIONAL AIR/LAND FIELD TRIALS WOULD FOLLOW SUCCESSFUL CONCLUSION OF PHASE I AND II RESEARCH.
