The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Low Noise, High Efficiency Hydraulics for Mobile Robots

    SBC: Ekso Bionics Inc            Topic: SB103001

    We propose to develop an exoskeleton device that significantly reduces the load the user bears while introducing a negligible metabolic impact. The proposed device employs a novel approach to the issues associated with excessive loading and represents a significant deviation from previous attempts to meet this need. We will develop a lightweight lower extremity exoskeleton for load carriage assis ...

  2. Ka-band Spread Spectrum

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: SOCOM12001

    SATCOM On-The-Move (OTM) is one of the greatest operational and tactical advantages our troops have. The SATCOM terminals available pose a number of practical constraints resulting in less than universal usage. Traditional reflectors are high profile and difficult to integrate on aircraft and ground vehicles. The ability to maintain link during high-g maneuvers such as travelling over rough terr ...

  3. Improved Tire Technology for Special Operations Vehicles

    SBC: AMERICAN ENGINEERING GROUP LLC            Topic: SOCOM11004

    American Engineering Group (AEG) will study the feasibility of utilizing carbon-fiber multiple hoop technology in developing a zero-pressure tire-wheel system. AEG will conduct feasibility study to develop this technology to produce a high-speed, off-road tire that can survive terrain and ballistic threats. AEG will work with Goodyear Tire Company (Akron, Ohio) & Community Tire(St Louis, MO) on th ...

  4. Compact Quiet Microclimate Cooling System

    SBC: Rini Technologies Inc            Topic: HSB042006

    The Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit (TALOS) is being developed by the United States Special Operations Command (USSCOM). Warfighters operating in hot regions while wearing encapsulating Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) will require a Compact and Quiet Microclimate Cooling System (CQ-MCS) to protect the suit operators from heat stress. RINI Technologies has developed a 1 liter sized man-por ...

  5. Optical Wave Guide Integrated Weather Sensor

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: SOCOM10006

    ABSTRACT: Physical Optics Corporation (POC) seeks to meet the need of an Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC) deficiency by fielding a capable remote expendable reporting environmental sensor that will greatly enhance the AFSOC Special Operation Weather Teams (SOWTs) ability to provide timely, accurate and critical deep battlespace weather reconnaissance and intelligence. SOCOM SBIR 10 ...

  6. Low Dark Current, Extended Wavelength SWIR Sensors Using Hydrogenated Unipolar Barrier InGaAs

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: SOCOM12002

    In this Phase II program, improved performance SWIR sensors with extended wavelength response to 2.5 microns will be developed using two disruptive technologies, which Amethyst has successfully demonstrated in the Phase I program: unipolar barrier (e.g., nBn) detector structures, and defect passivation via hydrogenation. This two-pronged approach addresses the main performance limitation of extend ...

  7. Dual Speed Read Out Integrated Circuit (ROIC)

    SBC: Nu-Trek            Topic: SOCOM12003

    Typical imager speeds (30 Hz to 60 Hz) are usually too slow to detect and track hostile fire. To achieve higher speeds, windowing and clustering are used. However, these methods reduce the field of view and the spatial resolution. Nu-Trek is proposing to develop a 2-speed SWIR imager, with optional range finder and real-time hostile fire detection algorithms. The SWIR imager will provide high dyna ...

  8. A High Power Density Rotary Engine for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N10AT001

    In Phase I MER demonstrated the superior performance and power-to-weight ratios of the VS-Rotary engine. In Phase II MER will team with the University of Arizona who will provide engine modeling, simulation, and analysis along with advanced precision machining and fabrication. MER will also team with NCE of Tucson to provide test and systems integration development of the engine to the applicatio ...

  9. Ultra-Light Fabric Mk III Exoskeleton

    SBC: Other Lab Inc.            Topic: NSFIIP141659

    Traditional design approaches to developing exoskeleton systems are not capable of demonstrating the performance improvements currently envisioned by TALOS. At the masses currently envisioned for TALOS, no anthropomorphic exoskeleton device has been demonstrated that can improve dynamic human capabilities. Some are able to improve slow tasks such as peak lifting capabilities, but in all cases thes ...

  10. Low Noise, High Efficiency Hydraulics for Mobile Robots

    SBC: Ekso Bionics Inc            Topic: SB103001

    We propose to develop a lower body exoskeleton device that will enable the wearer to perform super-human running with a reduced metabolic cost. As the carry load and protective gear of the modern war fighter increases, the soldiers agility is significantly limited and their metabolic cost of movement increases. The proposed exoskeleton will allow the soldier to perform dynamic movements such as ...
