  1. Low Noise, High Efficiency Hydraulics for Mobile Robots

    SBC: Ekso Bionics Inc            Topic: SB103001

    We propose to develop an exoskeleton device that significantly reduces the load the user bears while introducing a negligible metabolic impact. The proposed device employs a novel approach to the issues associated with excessive loading and represents a significant deviation from previous attempts to meet this need. We will develop a lightweight lower extremity exoskeleton for load carriage assis ...

  3. Advanced Transparent Armor Materials and Manufacturing Methods

    SBC: SURMET, CORP.            Topic: SOCOM14002

    "Current glass-based transparent armor has two major deficiencies: 1) It is very heavy, and therefore can compromise performance and helicopter transportability of vehicles; and 2) It is very thick, and therefore can compromise visual signature of vehicles. Advanced technology ceramic transparent armor removes both these deficiencies and provides a twofold improvement in performance, but costs 6-1 ...

  4. Advanced Transparent Armor Materials and Manufacturing Methods

    SBC: TRANSPARENT ARMOR SOLUTIONS INC.            Topic: SOCOM14002

    This proposal offers the development of an advanced lightweight transparent armor that combines lightweight glass, Gemini spaced armor technology, advanced Quintium polymer and a proprietary thermoset interlayer (TAS1411) to reduce weight by more than 30% of the current state of the art. Ballistic testing will be completed at both elevated and low temperatures. Environmental testing will demonst ...

  5. Thermal Hydrogen Extraction on Board

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: SOCOM14004

    To address the SOCOM"s need for a system to generate hydrogen from water on site for use in combatant craft diesel engines, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new Thermal Hydrogen Extractor on Board (THEB) system. It is based on a new POC-developed technology of hydrogen generation and COTS components to extract and supply this hydrogen. The innovation in system design will en ...

  6. Optical Wave Guide Integrated Weather Sensor

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: SOCOM10006

    ABSTRACT: Physical Optics Corporation (POC) seeks to meet the need of an Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC) deficiency by fielding a capable remote expendable reporting environmental sensor that will greatly enhance the AFSOC Special Operation Weather Teams (SOWTs) ability to provide timely, accurate and critical deep battlespace weather reconnaissance and intelligence. SOCOM SBIR 10 ...

  7. Inconspicuous Up-Armoring of Vehicles Using Segmented Ceramic and Metallic Elements

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM14003

    Triton Systems Inc.(Triton), together with our partner Technical Products Inc. (TPI) will conduct a feasibility study to evaluate options for armoring non standard commercial vehicles (NSCV) in an unobtrusive fashion using austere mechanical facilities corresponding to expedient basing in the area of operations. Triton has wide experience in metallic, ceramic and composite armoring solutions and ...

  8. Low Profile Closed Coolant System for High Speed Combatant Craft

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: SOCOM14005

    High speed combatant craft utilized by SOCOM, such as the Riverine (SOC-R), use pumped raw water to provide engine cooling for the twin marine diesel engines. While raw water provides an essentially limitless heat sink, it often contains debris which can clog engine strainers, causing the engines to overheat. Thus, engine performance, as well as maintenance, is negatively affected by the use of th ...

  9. Ultra-Light Fabric Mk III Exoskeleton

    SBC: Other Lab Inc.            Topic: NSFIIP141659

    Traditional design approaches to developing exoskeleton systems are not capable of demonstrating the performance improvements currently envisioned by TALOS. At the masses currently envisioned for TALOS, no anthropomorphic exoskeleton device has been demonstrated that can improve dynamic human capabilities. Some are able to improve slow tasks such as peak lifting capabilities, but in all cases thes ...

  10. Low Noise, High Efficiency Hydraulics for Mobile Robots

    SBC: Ekso Bionics Inc            Topic: SB103001

    We propose to develop a lower body exoskeleton device that will enable the wearer to perform super-human running with a reduced metabolic cost. As the carry load and protective gear of the modern war fighter increases, the soldiers agility is significantly limited and their metabolic cost of movement increases. The proposed exoskeleton will allow the soldier to perform dynamic movements such as ...
