  1. Advanced Lightweight Vehicle Components and Materials

    SBC: GS ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: SOCOM07001

    The additional weight of add-on armor systems and extra equipment required by the fighting force, coupled with IED tactical warfare has negatively impacted the performance of tactical wheeled vehicles. This is demonstrated by overstressed suspension systems, higher vehicle center of gravity, increased rollovers, and reduced performance on all tactical vehicles. It has been especially prevalent in ...

  3. Belt Shift Interlock Delay/Deaccelerator with Learning Curve Software to increase Seatbelt Usage on commercial Vehicles

    SBC: The Tenik Group Inc.            Topic: 07FM1

    Various methods for increasing seat belt usage have been investigated over the last several years including visual and audible warnings currently installed in today's vehicles. In spite of these attempts, FMCSA research has shown that drivers of about 59% of commercial motor vehicles (those weighing over 10,000 pounds or more that operate in interstate commerce) buckle their safety belts as compa ...

  4. DGPS-Based Trilateration Positioning Receiver

    SBC: Swaszek Peter            Topic: 07FH1

    Positioning and navigation have become a mainstay of everyday life in the U.S.; applications of interest include navigation of vehicles of all kinds, infrastructure mapping, and safety of life systems. Many of these recent applications have become possible through the GPS. With the recognized vulnerabilities of GPS, it is evident that equivalent backup systems must be developed. One possible so ...
