  1. Low Visibility Decoy Flare

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM09002

    Low visibility flares offer significant advantages for nighttime protection of rotary wing vehicles. Aerodyne Research Inc (ARI) and its teaming partner ATK propose flares having nearly same intensity in IR bands of interest while having greatly reduced visibility. The Phase I program will build on previous work performed by ARI on low visibility flares to identify candidate flare compositions h ...

  2. Compact, Efficient Motor Controllers with Active Noise Cancellation

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: SOCOM09005

    Most commercial motor controllers (MC’s) operate at relatively low switching frequency that produces a detectable acoustic signature and therefore drives the Navy to procure MC’s operating at higher frequencies in order to reduce acoustic signature. These custom MC’s, however, still generate significant noise, are not sufficiently reliable, and have obsolete components. APS will develop an i ...

  3. Registration of EO and LIDAR using an Interoperability Architecture for Net-Centric Environments (RELIANCE)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM09003

    The “see first, understand first, act first, finish decisively” principle requires that military commanders and analysts be provided a complete, up-to-the-second view of the battlefield. Currently deployed full motion video (FMV) sensors provide crucial real-time situational awareness, but suffer from limited field of view and lack of geographical context. Augmenting current FMV displays with ...

  4. High-Sensitivity Military GPS Receivers for Ground-Users


    The overall objective of the HSGR Program is to develop a high sensitivity military GPS receiver to provide reliable GPS navigation, under weak GPS signal conditions, to ground based military GPS users. Mayflower’s approach to meet this HSGR program objective is to design, develop and incorporate “high-sensitivity” signal processing enhancements (namely, Vector Tracking (VT) and Multi-bit GP ...

  5. Thermally Insulative Diving Suit

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: SOCOM09001

    USSOCOM Special Operations Divers operate in harsh environments, often exposed to extreme cold temperaturess for extended periods of time. An advanced thermal protection system is required that provides enhanced thermal protection at cold temperatures as well as reduced thermal performance at elevated temperatures to prevent overheating. Mide proposes to combine nanomaterials with hydrogels to a ...

  6. A Model-Based Index of Cognitive Fightability for Warrior Systems

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Current methods to assess system effectiveness often require the development of prototype systems and costly evaluation studies. Several heuristic approaches exist to support technology selection and implementation services, however a scientifically-basedprocess is needed that will consider the functionality that new technology provides, the missions that these systems will be applied to, and the ...

  7. AutoCAS: Automated Communications Analysis System for use in Military Synthetic Environment Exercises

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Effective communications are essential in military operations in urban terrain (MOUT). Leaders must coordinate distributed squads of soldiers in hostile, urban battlegrounds through communication. However, though verbal communications are easy to capture,it traditionally takes days or weeks to analyze and assess this valuable data. Thus, communications analysis has become the province of research ...

  8. Instructional System for Enhancing Seakeeping Cognitive Readiness and Decision-Making Skills

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Planing hull craft used for high-speed operations in littoral waters pose numerous safety challenges. Failure to adequately negotiate wave conditions may result in injury to the crew and damage to the craft. Our primary goal for this project is to designa comprehensive instructional system that will materially improve boat-handling safety by teaching strategies that can significantly mitigate sh ...

  9. Design and Validation of Simulation-based Training for Emergency First Responders

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Simulation-based training is a promising instructional approach for training military and civilian first responders. In addition to training in relevant taskwork skills, there is a need for first responder training in cognitively-based skills such assituation assessment and decision making. We are addressing this need by the development of FIRST, a validated training program for first responders ...

  10. Warrior Readiness for Coalition and Collaborative Teams

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The focus of this proposal is to develop a leadership training system that facilitates the development and maintenance of high performance in multi-cultural teams. Specifically, the goal of this effort is to develop a scenario-based assessment andtraining system that can be implemented through a web network or standalone PC - the Functional Learning Levers Team Leader Toolkit (the FuLL TiLT). Fo ...
