  3. Multiplexed Delta Transfer

    SBC: Sentar, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM163005

    The proposed concept is a software utility tool that resides on each of the client and server. The coordinating apps implement a delta transfer protocol, plus multiplexing data transfers over multiple network paths. It is a concept and tool for a system for prepositioning and synchronizing data between file systems deployed across austere environments and for commercial or private cloud enterprise ...

  4. Tactical Sensor Data Processing, Exploitation, and Dissemination

    SBC: Cintel, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM163008

    The U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) trains, equips and deploys Special Operations Forces (SOF) to worldwide locations to advance the nation's interests. The reality of worldwide operations requires a worldwide intelligence gathering and analysis capability, a processing capability and a way to disseminate actionable intelligence to operational units. Our solution will directly supp ...

  5. Low Cost Opaque Armor Material and Manufacturing for Non Standard Commercial Vehicles

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: SOCOM14003

    A novel composite structure based low cost opaque armor material and associated manufacturing/installation method are proposed. This process offers immediate field upgrade potential to Non Standard Commercial Vehicles (NSCV) capable of advancing into denied areas while operating indistinguishably from indigenous platforms. Our innovative armor installation procedure has already been shown to incr ...

  6. High Speed Imaging Spectropolarimeter for Dynamic Samples

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 9020663R

    Spectroscopic ellipsometry is recognized as the gold standard in noncontact characterization of the refractive index and thickness of a thin optical film or film stack on a substrate. However, it suffers from a number of shortcomings, perhaps the most important of which is the time required to perform a single measurement. Moreover, manufacturers are interested in comprehensive evaluation of thin ...

  7. An Automated Test Bed for Assessing System-of-System (SoS) Assurance

    SBC: DeVivo AST, Inc.            Topic: 9040177R

    As System-of-Systems (SoS) become more complex, interactions and latent emergent behaviors become difficult to identify and control. Unmanned Autonomous Systems (UAS) are a prime example of SoS that are both critical and difficult to assure. Drawing upon prior work into multi-criteria decision making (MCDM), DeVivo AST has developed TOP Score, a software tool that facilitates the modeling and anal ...

  8. Novel Power System for Extended Endurance of Air Launched SUAS

    SBC: Integrated Solutions For Systems, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM11003

    Tactical requirements for small unmanned aircraft systems (SUAS) are exceeding current capabilities in performance, reliability, maintainability, and supportability. Mission requirements such as endurance, power, acoustics and low altitude maneuverability and observability for air-launched SUAS are paramount. State of the art technology for Joint UAS Group 1 provides approximately 25-60 minutes of ...

  9. Development and Manufacturing of Lightweight Textile Fire Barrier for Furniture and Mattresses

    SBC: Tex Tech Industries Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Through this NIST SBIR program, Tex Tech Industries is developing furniture and mattress fire blocking materials. Fire barrier methods are necessary to protect furniture and mattresses from fire. In Phase I, Tex Tech used a variety of fibers to make and evaluate fibers for fire barriers. In Phase II, Tex Tech proposed to continue to develop a fire protection barrier from textiles that can potentia ...

  10. Development and Manufacturing of Lightweight Textile Fire Barrier for Furniture and Mattresses

    SBC: Tex Tech Industries Inc.            Topic: N/A

    New fire barrier methods are necessary to protect furniture and mattresses from fire. Current California (and soon National) regulations require mattresses to be able to pass the mattress fire burn test. Typical barrier fabrics use self extinguishing fibers with high limiting oxygen index (LOI) to create a barrier that the flame cannot pass. A second approach creates a carbon barrier that is forme ...
