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. Advanced Interference Mitigation Technologies for Wideband Tactical Radios

    SBC: Metamagnetics Inc.            Topic: SOCOM183002

    Metamagnetics proposes to demonstrate innovative methods of protecting receivers from large interference signals and associated intermodulation distortion (IMD) products. This solution will be applicable to a wide variety of fielded and next-generation tactical communications radios. First, we will conduct a systems study to evaluate the trade space of state-of-the-art (SOTA) hardware and software ...

  2. Daytime Marker

    SBC: Forward Photonics LLC            Topic: SOCOM173001

    There exists a challenge in observing laser designated targets in full daylight conditions for currently fielded near-infrared (NIR) laser designators. The visibility difficulty arises primarily from the significant background signal produced by the sun, which closely mimics the spectral signature of a blackbody . By extending the wavelength region in which laser designators/markers operate into t ...

  3. Widely-Tunable Distributed-feedback Mid-Infrared Laser for Standoff Chemical Detection

    SBC: Pendar Technologies, LLC            Topic: A10075

    The Special Operations Forces require the compact capability to rapidly and safely scan an enclosed space and assess the presence of drugs, explosive, or other chemicals in order to support quickly search a room for potential evidence and reduce hostile risks.Pendar is proposing to develop for the current program a handheld standoff chemical detector with a capability for 2-m standoff chemical ana ...

  4. Daytime Marker

    SBC: JGM ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: SOCOM173001

    Phase I work will combine computer modeling and lab experiments to demonstrate feasibility of a hand-held marker / designator that can generate laser emission at 1064 nm, a wavelength in the 3000 to 4200 nm range, and at a wavelength in the 4400 to 5400 nm range.By improving laser beam quality by a factor of 4 to 16, we will reduce laser output pulse energy requirements by a factor of 10 to 100 at ...

  5. Quantum Cascade Lasers for Multi-Band Daytime Markers

    SBC: Forward Photonics LLC            Topic: SOCOM173001

    The prevalence of precision guided munitions has increased dramatically in the previous decades, with estimates showing nearly 90% of munitions will be precision guided by 2020. Of these munitions over 90% are expected to be laser guided. There still exists a challenge in reliably laser designating a target in full daylight conditions. Expanding the current laser designator abilities to these mid- ...

  6. High Power Daytime Marker with Extremely Narrow Divergence

    SBC: Corcoran Engineering, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM173001

    The goal of this project is to develop a power-scalable laser source suitable for laser designation of targets.The main thrust will focus on power scaling of individual laser elements using passive coherent beam combination technology.Scaling the output power of a single laser element beyond a few 100 mW presents a significant challenge as phenomena such as catastrophic optical damage or heat diss ...

  8. Rapid Acquisition Management Platform (RAMP)

    SBC: GURU Technology            Topic: SOCOM18004

    The Government current software development acquisition process takes months or years for technology to reach operational users. The process within the Department of Defense (DoD) is drastically more expensive than available options used in the commercial market space. GURU Technology will demonstrate feasibility of an innovative platform to: 1) drastically lower cost, 2) improve results, 3) signi ...

  9. Improving Human Performance through Neuroenhancement

    SBC: REJUVENATE BIO INC            Topic: SOCOM182002

    Special Operations Forces (SOF) are an integral aspect of the US military. SOF operators are among the most elite and highly qualified individuals in the U.S. military. As such, extraordinary physical and mental demands are placed upon them to excel in extreme environments for extended periods of time. This unrelenting cycle of combat deployments and intense pre-deployment training shortens the fu ...
