  1. Self-Mobile Trailer

    SBC: Micro Analysis & Design Inc            Topic: SOCOM03006

    The combat load for today's individual Special Operations Forces warfighter is 100 pounds or more, which is unacceptably high. Lighter loads will reduce SOF operator fatigue, and increase his ability to move greater distances in a shorter time than is possible today. As a solution to this problem, we propose to manufacture a self-mobile trailer, a robotic "mule" capable of carrying loads up to 1 ...

  2. Development of enhanced active damping system for the Marine Corps Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle (EFV)

    SBC: ACTIVE SHOCK, INC.            Topic: N04192

    A semi-active suspension upgrade kit for the SOCOM up-armored HMWWV will be developed that will achieve comparable performance for the entire weight range of a GMV: 8300lbs curb weight to 14,500lbs combat loaded. The baseline performance requirement is equivalent handling, stability and ride quality as an M1113 HMMWV at rated GVW. A dynamic model that incorporates the semi-active suspension into ...

  3. MOCA: Monitoring of Crowd Activities

    SBC: SECURICS, INC.            Topic: SOCOM06014

    The MOCA project will develop a network-enabled DSP+FPGA-enhanced image-intensified embedded system for self-contained low-power monitoring of crowds in open and in complex urban terrain. The Phase I effort will develop new algorithms explicitly for crowd management, rather than building on the traditional intelligent video surveillance algorithms that are focused on isolated targets in motion. P ...

  4. Development of a Family of Modular Light Tactical Wheeled Vehicles (FMLTWV)

    SBC: SABRE ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: SOCOM03014

    Having met every technical objective laid out in the Phase I Proposal, the Sabre FMLTWV provides tactical variants not otherwise available to SOCOM with its current fleet. Available in both Narrow Vehicle (NV) and Standard Vehicle (SV) sizes, the FMLTWV shares a unique and innovative active suspension system that provides extended mobility via AWD 4-wheel steering allowing the vehicle to turn wit ...

  5. Conformal Appliqué Antennas for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles and Aircraft

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: SOCOM06002

    Current methods of transmitting low-frequency RF energy from airborne platforms involve antennas such as blades that are electrically inefficient and a place a large aerodynamic burden on the airframe. SOCOM desires a method of efficiently transmitting low-frequency energy (VHF-UHF) at high power levels from airborne platforms. The desired gain numbers (-2 to 0 dB) at these frequencies would requi ...

  6. A Fusion Based Tactical Biometric Registration and Recognition Toolset

    SBC: SPACEFLIGHT SYSTEMS CORP            Topic: SOCOM06004

    Human biometric recognition systems are essential in the automated personal identification and verification applications market. This market spans the commercial and military sectors to include a myriad of identification applications from secure entrance, to time card clocks, to bio-certified delivery systems, to automobiles that recognize their drivers, to money transaction systems, to weapons th ...

  7. Automated Detection and Cueing

    SBC: PERCEPTEK            Topic: SOCOM06001

    The single most effective method to thwart security threats posed by people with hostile intent is to detect their presence early. Unfortunately, large scale standoff detection of humans is difficult. Various sensors, including still and video cameras, have been designed and applied to human detection, however, to date a person is required to be in the detection loop since robust, automated detect ...

  8. Covert Modular Situational Awareness Monitor

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM05010

    A need exists for inexpensive, disposable, broadcast capable chemical / explosive-compound sensors that also provide site weather conditions. The state-of-the-art does not meet the need described both in terms of CWA sensor cost/size and lack of a low-cost deployment system. ADA proposes under this three-phased SBIR program to develop a system comprised of a suite of covert, modular, lightweight ...

  9. Miniature Quickscan Receiver

    SBC: AEROSTREAM COMMUNICATIONS CORPORATION            Topic: SOCOM04004

    Develop a miniature, lowcost scanning receiver.

  10. Advanced Vision & Position Acquisition System (AVPAS)

    SBC: INSIGHT TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: SOCOM04005

    Our goal is to develop a single device or modular group of devices weighing less than three pounds that can provide all of the functionality required for individual dismounted special forces for surveillance, small arms fire control, and tactical network connectivity. This challenge requires expertise not only in each of the individual modules for day sights, night vision, range finding, GPS, com ...
