  1. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Compact Quiet Microclimate Cooling System

    SBC: RINI TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: HSB042006

    The Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit (TALOS) is being developed by the United States Special Operations Command (USSCOM). Warfighters operating in hot regions while wearing encapsulating Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) will require a Compact and Quiet Microclimate Cooling System (CQ-MCS) to protect the suit operators from heat stress. RINI Technologies has developed a 1 liter sized man-por ...

  5. 3-D Facial Imaging System

    SBC: ADVANCED ANTI-TERROR TECHNOLOGIES CORP            Topic: SOCOM07004

    The aims and opportunities of Photo-Automatic-Linking for 3-D Facial-Imaging System(PALS-3D) are focused on innovative development, iterative evolving, and near-term fielding of modular inexpensive imaging systems that enable users to capture a person’s face in three dimensions(3-D) and identify the individual based on two dimensions(2-D) and/or 3-D baseline imagery using lightweight, low power, ...

  6. Megapixel Uncooled Photomechanical LWIR Imager

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: SOCOM07005

    Agiltron has developed a breakthrough modular IR imaging technology that employs a photomechanical effect, in which an array of micro-machined sensor pixels converts IR radiation into visible light signals that can be optically detected by commercial off-the-shelf CMOS or CCD visible-light imagers. With commercial CMOS imagers achieving multi-megapixel resolution, the resolution of the modular Agi ...

  7. Individual Cooling Equipment

    SBC: CESARONI TECHNOLOGY INCORPORATED            Topic: SOCOM06009

    Military ground mobility vehicles often operate in areas of high heat with no environmental conditioning systems for cooling the individual soldier or critical vehicle electronic systems. Typical vehicle climate control systems are large refrigerant-based systems that are not man portable. SOCOM expressed a desire for cooling equipment that is man portable for short periods of time (~3 hours) du ...

  8. Enhanced Small Arms Ammunition

    SBC: LIBERTY AMMUNITION, INC.            Topic: SOCOM06008

    Small arms ammunition has not changed significantly in decades. Projectiles consisting of lead cores, jacketed with copper alloy have been in service since the early twentieth century and continue to be widely used. Lead is highly toxic, and concerns have been raised regarding the environmental impact of lead core small arms projectiles. Liberty Ammunition Inc. was founded to explore alternative g ...

  9. High Resolution Long Wave Infrared Focal Plane Array Development

    SBC: NANTERO, INC.            Topic: SOCOM07005

    Infrared (IR) detection is an integral part of the Global War on terrorism. Vandium Oxide based micro-bolometers are the current state of the art in uncooled IRFPA. The need for higher resolution 1280X960 arrays that operate at low power for man-portable applications include 24 hour surveillance and targeting . Carbon Nanotube (CNT) based IR detectors could fill this need. CNTs have unique electri ...
