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 Advanced Military Prosthetic Shoulder System

    SBC: Sarcos Group LC            Topic: A05-161

    A new dual pump hydraulic supply designed to enable energetically autonomous exoskeleton robots will be developed, tested and demonstrated. This new hydraulic supply will be integrated with a high performance hydraulically actuated full body exoskeleton robot and used to test and demonstrate the overall performances of such systems. New control policies that include: (i) an assist mode, where the ...

  3. Upper Body Addendum to Proposal S2-0328

    SBC: Apptronik, Inc.            Topic: H6.01

    This is an Addendum to previously submitted proposal that includes the addition of a powered upper body portion of an exoskeleton. In this addendum we propose the additional requirements of researching, fabricating and integrating a powered upper body to the previously outlined lower body. These two systems together will comprise the entire exoskeleton proposed by the contractor. Through this ...

  4. Combat Systems of the Future

    SBC: ASSETT, Incorporated            Topic: N05-149

    The S-351 mini-sub is a prototype of the Dry Combat Submersible (DCS). This prototype was established as a means of risk reduction prior to a full commitment to the DCS program. Both of these platforms have an operational need to transit with minimum operator fatigue safely to a pre-defined point and covertly deploy and retrieve SEALS. To meet these operational needs, these platforms require upgra ...

  5. Liquid-cooled actuation to achieve greater degrees of freedom and range of motion in untethered exoskeletons

    SBC: Apptronik, Inc.            Topic: H6.01-8135

    Apptronik Systems Inc., in cooperation with the University of Texas Human Centered Robotics Lab (HCRL) and Huston-Tillotson University Robotics Lab (a historically black college and university HBCU), endeavor to advance the movement capabilities and modularity of the exoskeleton being developed under contract #H92222-17-C-0050. The primary goal of this program is to optimize the range of movement ...

  6. Acoustic Signature Reduction of Special Operations Forces Aircraft Using Flow-Excited Cancellation Sources

    SBC: KCF TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: SOCOM163-001

    KCF Technologies in partnership with Lockheed Martin, Inc. proposes a lightweight, low drag, quasi-active noise control system to reduce the acoustic signatures of existing SOF fixed wing aircraft. The proposed solution is based on integrating flow-excited resonators near the blade tips of the propeller, commonly the aircrafts major noise source. The resonators are tuned actively to generate anti- ...

  7. Acoustic Signature Reduction

    SBC: TEXAS HIGH ENERGY MATERIALS, LLC            Topic: SOCOM163-001

    Audible noise generated from propeller driven aircraft has been extensively studied by aero acoustic scientists and engineers. Manned aircraft and Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems are being fielded by SOCOM for unique missions. Detrimental noise inherent to propeller driven aircraft signals approach and location, which then compromises personnel, payload, the aircraft, and mission success. Our nov ...

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

    SBC: Cobb Design Inc            Topic: SOCOM163-001

    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 ...

  9. Advanced Durability Systems for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Propulsion

    SBC: Baker Engineering Inc            Topic: SOCOM163-002

    Baker Engineering Inc. (BEI) proposes the exploration of advanced material technologies to improve Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) engine durability, thermal and wear resistance, and strength within critical internal engine components. Specifically during the Phase I effort, BEI will research the use of advanced materials and coatings on static engine components including cylinders, blocks and crank ...

  10. Advanced Engine Durability Systems for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Propulsion

    SBC: IBC Materials & Technologies            Topic: SOCOM163-002

    UAV engines have a mean time between overhauls of about 400-500 hours, after which the engine is torn down for inspection. One of the primary findings during this overhaul is the presence of abundant carbon deposits in the engines and the combustion areas. There are a number of issues caused by carbon build up. When large carbon deposits are formed, they reduce the smooth air flow which can res ...
