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. Culture and Modeling of Routine and Non-Routine Behavior

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: SOCOM06014

    Crowd management is an important task for civilian, police, and military groups that can be very difficult on its own, and becomes even more difficult in hostile environments. The difficulty comes from the many levels of granularity that events can happen at. Making such a system automated adds further challenges, due to difficulties with modeling and sensors. Accurate large-scale crowd models are ...

  2. Intelligent Agent Toolset for 4D/RCS Architectures

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    There is an increasing demand for systems with more autonomous operations interacting with other autonomous and human-based systems. What is needed is an architecture bundled with developer tools for the creation of intelligent real-time control systems that marry the talents of modern control theory, software technology, sensory processing, and semantic knowledge representations. It would be a st ...

  3. Development of enhanced active damping system for the Marine Corps Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle (EFV)

    SBC: ACTIVE SHOCK, INC.            Topic: N04192

    A semi-active suspension upgrade kit for the SOCOM up-armored HMWWV will be developed that will achieve comparable performance for the entire weight range of a GMV: 8300lbs curb weight to 14,500lbs combat loaded. The baseline performance requirement is equivalent handling, stability and ride quality as an M1113 HMMWV at rated GVW. A dynamic model that incorporates the semi-active suspension into ...

  4. Covert Modular Situational Awareness Monitor

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM05010

    A need exists for inexpensive, disposable, broadcast capable chemical / explosive-compound sensors that also provide site weather conditions. The state-of-the-art does not meet the need described both in terms of CWA sensor cost/size and lack of a low-cost deployment system. ADA proposes under this three-phased SBIR program to develop a system comprised of a suite of covert, modular, lightweight ...

  5. Maritime Surveillance Sensing Using Underwater High Frequency Acoustic Communication Receivers

    SBC: Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM06013

    High-frequency acoustic modems are required to provide undersea communication networks to support covert surveillance operations. These modems can also be used as platforms for compact, low power surveillance sensors and processing. A natural first step would be to integrate a capability for passive acoustic detection of ships and submarines. A multi-phase effort is proposed for integrating passiv ...

  6. Miniature Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (MUAV)

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: SOCOM05011

    This proposal will design, develop, and demonstrate a self-contained probe that will provide sensor videos on-demand to aircraft operators. A Miniature Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (MUAV) is proposed to meet this requirement. The MUAV will be capable of being launched from existing airborne aircraft platforms, including helicopters, and will be capable of being controlled by the aircraft operator in fl ...

  7. Low-Noise Detector Arrays for Raman Spectroscopy

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to demonstrate near infrared (NIR) InGaAs sensor arrays with 55% lower noise than arrays presently available to improve the sensitivity of current spectroscopy systems. The low noise performance will be enabled by the use of low-noise source follower per detector ROICs, which are also used in astronomy with HgCdTe for low noise measurements. With design improvements to current available ...

  8. Miniature Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (MUAV)

    SBC: AEROVIRONMENT, INC.            Topic: SOCOM05011

    Special operation forces utilize C-130 aircraft that often operate in night/adverse weather, low-level, deep-penetration missions in contested or hostile environments. These low altitude missions result in higher risks to the crew and aircraft. AeroVironment proposes to leverage their current packaged and air-launched unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) developments to design a self-contained, packaged ...

  9. Development of a High Sensitivity Laser-induced Incandescence Instrument for Characterizing Soot and Carbonaceous Particles

    SBC: ARTIUM TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N/A

    A high sensitivity laser-induced incandescence system is proposed for the detailed characterization of environmental soot. The Phase 1 effort has clearly demonstrated the feasibility of (1) reducing the lower detection limit of soot volume fraction and increasing the overall measurement range by at least 2 orders of magnitude from what is currently achievable, and (2) providing PM particle size me ...

  10. Velocity Sensing Sonar for Naval Special Warfare Undersea Vehicles

    SBC: ASSETT, Incorporated            Topic: SOCOM05003

    This proposal responds to the need for a more capable velocity sensor for Naval Special Warfare undersea vehicles that will enable 3D bottom and water column tracking. Currently, the Advanced Seal Deployment System utilizes a Doppler Sonar capable of operations at altitudes of up to approximately 300 meters over the sea bed for bottom track mode. There is also a stated need to decrease weight, v ...
