  1. Algorithms for Look-down Infrared Target Exploitation

    SBC: Signature Research, Inc.            Topic: 1

    Signature Research, Inc. (SGR) and Michigan Technological University (MTU) propose a Phase I STTR effort to develop a learning algorithm which exploits the spatio-spectral characteristics inherent within IR imagery and motion imagery.Our archive of modelled and labeled data sets will allow our team to thoroughly capture the variable elements that will drive machine learning performance.The overall ...

  2. Enhanced Canine Performance, Protection and Survivability

    SBC: Metro International Biotech, LLC            Topic: SOCOM172002

    Given the benefits of exercise on general health, orally active compounds that can mimic or potentiate the effects of exercise have been of keen interest as therapeutic and dietary ingredients. Our proposed approach for enhancement of USSOCOM Multi-Purpose Canine (MPC) endurance and sensory performance using an exercise mimetic is based on the observation that age-related decline of nicotinamide ...

  3. Group 2 (<55lbs) Unmanned Aerial System for Special Operations Forces Tactical-Level Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance Operations

    SBC: Sealandaire Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM172005

    SeaLandAire Technologies, Inc. (SLA) proposes to meet this Group 2 need with an electric drive concept that will be capable of a 20-30 lbs. modular payload, with comparable range and endurance to current grp 2 ISR UAS, while still maintaining sufficient ISR capabilities. This UAS concept is able to covertly and safely deliver payload to within 1 meter accuracy, then extract a different payload an ...

  4. Virgo

    SBC: SOAR TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: SOCOM17004

    Many current approaches applying big data analytics to defensive cyberspace operations (DCO) are based on two premises: queries that find known anomalies (e.g., indicators of compromise) and/or applying machine learning to detect anomalous behavior. While some claim to predict attacks, in truth those attacks must have already been detected somewhere, characterized, and added to a knowledge base. W ...

  5. Advanced Durability Systems for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Propulsion

    SBC: BAKER ENGINEERING, LLC            Topic: SOCOM163002

    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 ...

  6. Freeze Dried Plasma for Canines

    SBC: OXFORD BIOMEDICAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: SOCOM163007

    Blood loss due to severe hemorrhaging is the leading cause of preventable combat death. Fresh frozen human plasma is commonly used to stabilize the wounded soldiers, but it is heavy, has a limited shelf life, and requires frozen storage. Currently, dried human plasma is being evaluated by the FDA, and has been used in several countries for some time. In addition to soldiers, several hundred wa ...

  7. High Performance Marine Diesel Closed Coolant System for High Speed Combatant Craft

    SBC: GS ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: SOCOM14005

    USSOCOM has expressed a desire to prevent the clogging of the seawater intakes aboard the SOC-R craft by exploring a closed-loop cooling system that does not require the use of off-board raw water. The desired solution will not degrade the current SOC-R craft capabilities by creating drag or causing cavitation that would affect the performance of the Hamilton jets, thereby reducing speed, would no ...

  8. Micro Combat ID (MID)

    SBC: Global Military Expert Consulting And Instruction, LLC            Topic: SOCOM10008

    GMECI proposes to combine existing commercial template matching and feature extraction algorithms with existing military EOIR sensor technology, to automatically highlight in real time friendly forces on existing displays. The proposed technology, Blue force Designated Optical Templates (BlueDOTs) will allow automatic computer recognition and highlighting to discern among individual, customized lo ...

  9. High Speed Combatant Craft Automated Ride Control

    SBC: Naiad Dynamics US Inc.            Topic: SOCOM10005

    The development of an automated ride control system for high speed combatant craft is critical to reducing the motions that cause injury to crew and damage to craft and equipment. Ancillary benefits include reduced fuel consumption for improved range of operation and the reduction of wake signature. The objective of this research project is to continue the successful development of ride control ...

  10. 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 ...
