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. Development of an HSI Module and Material-Design Software to Support Concurrent Design Concept Exploration

    SBC: HF DESIGNWORKS, INC            Topic: N142083

    HF Designworks (HFDW) describes an approach for developing a Human System Integration (HSI) module to the existing Framework for Assessing Cost and Technology (FACT) tool. The HSI module, working within a SysML format, will hold implications for hardware design in terms of the eight HSI domains: Human Factors Engineering (HFE), Personnel, Habitability, Manpower, Training, Safety, Occupational Heal ...

  2. Detection of Permethrin in Military Uniforms via Microwave NDE

    SBC: NOKOMIS, INC            Topic: N142084

    Permethrin content in the Marine Corps Combat Utility Uniform (MCCUU) decreases during active field duty, potentially exposing Marines to disease-carrying insects. Chemical based tests are currently impossible to perform in-situ under field condition, requiring consumables, bulky equipment, and a long test time. Under this effort, Nokomis will develop a handheld permethrin detection device that us ...

  3. In-situ, Non-Destructive Optical Spectroscopic Permethrin Test System

    SBC: HarmonoLogic, LLC            Topic: N142084

    To address Navy need for a novel in-situ, real-time, non-destructive permethrin test device for verification of permethrin content in military fabrics and uniforms in the field, HarmonoLogic LLC proposes to develop a new In-situ, Non-Destructive Optical Spectroscopic Permethrin Test (INDOSP) system based on optical spectroscopic sensing technologies. The portable, hand-held, non-destructive INDOSP ...

  4. Vectored Force Suspension Helmet Liner (VFSHEL)

    SBC: Hy-Tek Manufacturing Co. Inc.            Topic: N142085

    To overcome the capability gaps of current ECH suspension and retention liners, Hy-Tek Manufacturing Co. Inc. (HMC) will rely on a novel approach that significantly attenuates the transfer of low and high velocity impact energy to the soldiers head by vectoring a portion of that impact energy along a geometric plane tangential to the soldiers head. Unlike the functionality of current suspension an ...

  5. Protective Helmet Suspension and Retention System

    SBC: Vivonics, Inc.            Topic: N142085

    The Marine Corps is preparing to field the new Enhanced Combat Helmet (ECH) which replaces the Advanced Combat Helmet (ACH). The ECH has an updated shell made of lightweight polyethylene material that provides a higher degree of protection than Kevlar used in ACH, but the suspension and retention system have not been updated to account for the increased amount of ballistic energy that these improv ...

  6. Protective Helmet Suspension and Retention System


    Maritime Applied Physics Corporation (MAPC) in collaboration with University of Texas at Austin (UTAustin) proposes to develop a suspension pad and retention system for ballistic helmets for the mitigation of blunt and ballistic impact loads using negative stiffness elements. Although various helmet pads are available on the market it is understood that they are not optimized for increased ballist ...

  7. Ad-Hoc Ground Based Counter-Fire System

    SBC: Coherent Technical Services, Inc.            Topic: N142086

    The Marine Corps is looking for innovative solutions to improve the effectiveness of locating and identifying weapon system Points of Origin (POO) and Points of Impact (POI). At the same time, the Marine Corps wants this system automated on ground vehicles where the subject system will be the secondary or tag-along mission. This capability will drastically reduce the manpower currently required to ...

  8. Advanced Indirect Fire Geolocation Using Relocatable Listening Posts


    Acoustic detection of indirect fire impact points and the points of origin is a difficult problem. The sensors themselves are time consuming to emplace and maintain, the acoustic data received is difficult to interpret, and sound transmission times introduce latency into the system. SARA proposes an innovative set of algorithms at the command post level to interpret the reports from an array of mo ...

  9. Ad-Hoc Ground Based Counter-Fire System

    SBC: HYPERION TECHNOLOGY GROUP, INC.            Topic: N142086

    Acoustic sensors, such as the Ground Counter Fire Sensor (GCFS), are used by the USMC to identify the point-of-origin (POO) and point-of-impact (POI), as well as provide source identification. This effort will develop a proof-of-feasibility set of signal processing algorithms for the GCFSs Command Post (CP). These algorithms will permit a network consisting of a mixture of up to 12 fixed listening ...

  10. Rugged and Energy-Efficient Portable Oxygen Generator For Field Hospitals

    SBC: ATA Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N142087

    ATA Engineering proposes to develop an innovative portable oxygen generation system design through integration of commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) components featuring advanced technologies, implementation and evaluation of targeted equipment modifications for improved performance, and incorporation of design features for vibration and environmental ruggedness. The design process will seek to optim ...
