  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

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

    SBC: Knight Technical Solutions, LLC            Topic: SOCOM172005

    The proposed Group 2 UAS is a long endurance fixed wing aircraft, a secure communications system and a portable ground station. The light weight aircraft features a high aspect ratio wing and is powered by an electric ducted fan for maximum efficiency. The modular aircraft system is one man portable and designed to be packed out on a molle backpack configuration. The conceptual airframe design ...

  4. Handheld Hidden Chamber Detection

    SBC: TIALINX, INC.            Topic: SOCOM173004

    SOCOM requires rapid implementation and delivery of a handheld, automated hidden chamber sensor system to detect, locate, and discriminate hidden compartments. TiaLinxs Eagle-NC is a wall imager that operates as an ultra-wideband (UWB) radio frequency (RF) sensor integrated with advanced computer vision algorithms, state-of-the-art computer processor technologies, and has a fully integrated displa ...

  5. SUAS Killer, Identifier, and Tracker

    SBC: Physical Optics Corporation            Topic: SOCOM173005

    To address USSOCOMs need for a system to detect, locate, track, and either disable and/or destroy a small unmanned aerial system (SUAS) from a distance, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop the new SUAS Killer, Identifier, and Tracker (SKEET) system. The SKEET system is based on a new design that combines state-of-the-art airspace monitoring technology utilizing compact scanning r ...

  6. Human Performance Optimization: Ketone Esters for Optimization of Operator Performance in Hypoxia

    SBC: HVMN Inc.            Topic: SOCOM17C001

    In the setting of altitude-induced hypoxia, operator cognitive capacity degrades and can compromise both individual and team performance. This degradation is linked to falling brain energy (ATP) levels and an increased reliance on anaerobic energy production from glucose. Ketone bodies are the evolutionary alternative substrate to glucose for brain metabolic requirements; previous studies have sho ...

  7. System for Nighttime and Low-Light Face Recognition

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM18A001

    The objective of this proposal is to develop instrumentation and algorithms for acquiring facial features for facial recognition in low- and no-light conditions.We will use cross-spectrum matching by exploiting infrared polarimetric imagery which tends to show features that match more closely visible imagery than conventional infrared.In addition to thermal infrared, we will also test subjects in ...

  8. A Bidirectional, Transformerless Converter Topology for Grid-tied Energy Storage Systems

    SBC: Opcondys, Inc.            Topic: DEFOA0001736

    Grid-tied energy storage systems provide stabilization to the electric grid that is necessary to accommodate the growing percentage of electricity generated by intermittent renewable energy sources such as wind and solar. Existing conversion systems between the storage media and the utility lines are large, costly and only 95%-98% energy efficient. In this ARPA-E project, Opcondys, Inc. will build ...

  9. Resonant voltage regulator architecture eliminates 30-50% energy consumption of digital ICs

    SBC: Empower Semiconductor Incorporated            Topic: DEFOA0001736

    Empower Semiconductor has developed a resonant integrated voltage regulator (IVR) technology that can dramatically improve the energy efficiency of any digital CMOS IC. As Moore’s law has advanced, the plexity and power needs of digital ICs has grown dramatically. The voltages required by these ICs have lowered and the resulting voltage accuracy needs have become more stringent. Existing voltage ...

  10. A stable, low cost, low power CO2 sensor for demand controlled ventilation

    SBC: Matrix Sensors, Inc.            Topic: DEFOA0001738

    "We propose to develop a stable, low-cost, low power CO2 sensor module that meets the requirements of the ARPA-E SENSORS FOA, namely, 30 ppm precision over a dynamic range of 400 ppm to 2000 ppm with 10 ppm drift per year. Existing optical non-dispersive infrared (NDIR) CO2 sensors simply cannot scale to the cost and power requirements of the FOA. We therefore propose a solid state architecture ...
