  1. Epsilon-near-zero thermal emitter for combat identification

    SBC: Third Floor Materials, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM183004

    The USSOCOM is soliciting a thermal solution for combat identification (CID), which can be distributed to partner forces at low cost. Third Floor Materials (3FM) is proposing an innovative solution based on an emerging class of materials, epsilon-near-zero (ENZ) materials. The proposed approach will leverage the companys experience with these materials and proposes a solution with unique emissive ...

  2. Low Profile Night Vision Goggle Mounting Solution

    SBC: Swift Universal Optical Systems LLC            Topic: SOCOM191003

    The current method of stowing night vision goggles (NVG) on the helmet when not in use is a recognized source of acute and chronic neck injury.A mechanical solution that allows the NVG to be stowed in a position that reduces torque on the operators neck is required. Such a solution would reduce the users fatigue in operation as well as the likelihood of long-term chronic injury by moving the cente ...

  3. Foreign Like Weapon Production Capability

    SBC: Knight's Armament            Topic: SOCOM172003

    In the proposed effort, KAC will establish a process for reverse engineering and redesigning foreign weapons, primarily the 7.62x54R PKM and the 12.7x108mm NSV. Our engineers will use laser scanning to reverse engineer weapons from our on-site museum. We will reverse engineer the bolt from the PKM in order to demonstrate the viability of the laser scanner, our engineers, and our machine shop to co ...

  5. Development of a sensor for detecting Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning toxins

    SBC: SeaTox Research Inc            Topic: 842

    Paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP) due to consumption of contaminated shellfish is an increasing problem is the coastal waters of the United States, particularly in New England and the Pacific Ocean. The symptoms of PSP include vomiting, diarrhea, shortness of breath, confusion, and loss of coordination in both marine animals and humans. In severe cases, PSP toxins can cause respiratory failure a ...

  6. Feasibility and design study for the development of a low acoustic emission UAV propulsion unit.

    SBC: Cobb Design Inc            Topic: SOCOM163001

    The proposed study will evaluate the feasibility of producing a low acoustic emission propulsion unit for fixed wing UAV applications, utilizing optimized propeller designs matched to a low cylinder count small reciprocating engine. Acoustic performance will be enhanced by operating the propeller at reduced speed with high advance while improving the operating point of the coupled engine and furt ...

  7. Advanced Durability Coatings for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Propulsion

    SBC: UNITED PROTECTIVE TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: SOCOM163002

    Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) engine propulsion reliability is often dominated by failures associated with load bearing, sliding, or rotating components. These durability issues result in frequent overhauls, reducing system availability and increasing operating cost. Overcoming these is dramatically more difficult due to the operating conditions for military applications as well as the major empha ...

  8. Canine Response Inhibitors

    SBC: K2 Solutions, Inc            Topic: SOCOM172001

    U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) missions require the ability to maneuver undetected in urban and rural environments. While Special Operations Forces (SOF) have developed Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures (TTPs) for avoiding adversarial humans and technologies, remotely deliverable deterrents for domesticated and feral canines have remained an elusive goal, sometimes compromising operat ...

  9. Air Vehicle Optimization for Efficient and Precision Payload Delivery and Reconnaissance

    SBC: Prioria Robotics, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM172004

    Prioria is proposing a family of aircraft configurations to address USSOCOM's requirements. Achieving the significant endurance, range, winds, and payload requirements simultaneously requires a highly-optimized aircraft. The configurations range in endurance, robustness, and capability. Configuration 1 is a sturdy fixed-wing aircraft that achieves moderate endurance but can tolerate rough handl ...
