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 Lightweight Vehicle Components and Materials

    SBC: Alpha Star Corporation            Topic: SOCOM07001

    The HMMWV vehicle has seen increasing weight due to the added anti-ballistic and anti-IED protection, whereas mainframe is not designed to function optimally. Ground mobility forces are conducting increased mounted operations from armored HMMWV/modified HMMWV’s. As additional armor and equipment continues to be added to the system, the performance of the existing power train/suspension/steering ...

  2. Cultural Mobile Intelligence Data Acquisition System (MIDAS)

    SBC: Anacapa Sciences, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM07006

    Phase I entails a systematic investigation of handheld devices and wiki-based information sharing in relation to the needs and requirements of PSYOP soldiers in order to produce an optimal design of the Mobile Intelligence Data Acquisition System (MIDAS). The investigation will thoroughly cover hardware, software and Human Computer Interaction (HCI) considerations, capitalizing on user-centered ...

  3. Enhanced Small Arms Ammunition

    SBC: Liquidmetal Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM06008

    The current materials for small arms ammunitions have several shortcomings, such as environmental concerns, and have difficulty to meet the advancing requirements. The new material solutions and metallurgy is needed to meet the desired performance objectives and as well as safety, legal and environmental rules. The purpose of this Phase-I effort is to develop a bullet design based on a new class o ...

  4. Advanced Tactical Threat Warning Radio

    SBC: NETWORKFAB CORP.            Topic: SOCOM05008

    In today's tactical areas of operation, signal threat detection is one of the integral aspects of the SOF mission. In nearly all regions where SOF operations take place, there is a need for the ability to detect enemy communications (known and unknown) and DF on their locations. Additionally, SOF units have a critical need for short range tactical communications to stay in contact with other uni ...

  5. Real-Time Optical Sensor for Particle Size and Concentration Monitoring at Aircraft Engine Air Inlets

    SBC: PROCESS METRIX            Topic: SOCOM05009

    The overall objective of this project is to develop a sensor that can measure dust size and concentration exposure for military engine inlets. In order to achieve the simplest possible real-time sensor package, we have focused on a single-ended sensor design that measures back-scattered light to determine dust conditions. These measurements of dust concentrations and size can then be correlated ...

  6. Camouflage Tactical Multiband Direction Finding Antenna Array

    SBC: QUASAR Federal Systems, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM06017

    The US Department of Defense (DoD) has a need for a lightweight, portable, covert radio direction finding (DF) antenna. Current technology must be precisely spaced, oriented and phased, which makes it difficult to design an antenna with the necessary features whose function is not obvious to a trained observer. QUASAR Federal Systems (QFS) proposes to leverage the capabilities of its state-of-the- ...

  7. Automated Vehicle Identification at a Distance

    SBC: REAL-TIME INNOVATIONS, INC.            Topic: SOCOM07003

    Vehicle identification can be effected by acquiring multi-spectral signatures (i.e., acoustic and electromagnetic emissions) in an analogous fashion to the conventional biometric triad of fingerprints, facial recognition, and speech analysis used for identification of people. The acoustic metrics would include emissions unique to the engine and exhaust system for a particular vehicle, while the e ...

  8. Automated Vehicle Identification at a Distance

    SBC: SURFACE OPTICS CORP.            Topic: SOCOM07003

    A program to develop an advanced 3-D hyperspectral imaging sensor capable of day or night operation in the VNIR band is proposed. The proposed Automated Vehicle Identification at a Distance (AVID) sensor system builds upon Surface Optics’ real-time hyperspectral imaging activities, including the Multi-band Identification and Discrimination Imaging Spectroradiometer (MIDIS) system and the 3-D Fu ...

  9. Cultural Intelligence Wiki-berry

    SBC: Alelo Tlt, LLC            Topic: SOCOM07006

    Tactical Language Training, LLC, in collaboration with MYMIC, LLC, proposes to develop a portable cultural knowledge acquisition device called Wiki-berry, which service members can take into the field. The device will be capable of recording a variety of media, including voice, documents, images, and video. It will employ a user interface that is suitable for field use, as well as a rugged desig ...

  10. Automated Detection and Cueing


    Toyon Research Corporation proposes to further develop advanced algorithms, software, and camera interfaces for a low-cost, low-power, man-portable automated detection and cueing solution. During the Phase I effort, Toyon demonstrated accurate cueing to detected target locations, which can be used to notify a stand-off operator or high-resolution sensor to assess the detected objects. Toyon’s au ...
