  1. C-SMILE (Cloud-based SOCOM Scalable Man-Machine Identity Learning Environment)


    The primary goal of a terrorist-organized data leak is to share private data with the rest of the world. Once acquired, U.S. Government personnel information can provide actionable information to use against the U.S. in the form of direct strike, blackmail, fraud, or impersonation. For special operators at numerous government organizations, this leakage or discovery of personal information can hav ...

  2. Managing Operations Security Tool (MOST)

    SBC: IST Research Corp.            Topic: SOCOM16003

    There is ample evidence and channels for US military operational information to be released via social media and the interment; possibly compromising OPSEC. Tools to accurately identify what publicly available information is out there are lacking and even if these data were readily available, the volume is quite significant and tools to integrate and analyze are likewise lacking. Moving from overs ...

  3. Combat Systems of the Future

    SBC: Advanced Systems/Supportability Engineering Technologies And Tools, Inc.            Topic: N05149

    The S-351 mini-sub is a prototype of the Dry Combat Submersible (DCS). This prototype was established as a means of risk reduction prior to a full commitment to the DCS program. Both of these platforms have an operational need to transit with minimum operator fatigue safely to a pre-defined point and covertly deploy and retrieve SEALS. To meet these operational needs, these platforms require upgra ...

  4. Feasibility and design study for the development of a low acoustic emission UAV propulsion unit.

    SBC: Cobb Design Inc            Topic: SOCOM163001

    The proposed study will evaluate the feasibility of producing a low acoustic emission propulsion unit for fixed wing UAV applications, utilizing optimized propeller designs matched to a low cylinder count small reciprocating engine. Acoustic performance will be enhanced by operating the propeller at reduced speed with high advance while improving the operating point of the coupled engine and furt ...

  5. Advanced Durability Coatings for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Propulsion


    Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) engine propulsion reliability is often dominated by failures associated with load bearing, sliding, or rotating components. These durability issues result in frequent overhauls, reducing system availability and increasing operating cost. Overcoming these is dramatically more difficult due to the operating conditions for military applications as well as the major empha ...

  6. Advanced Tactical Facial Recognition at a Distance Technology

    SBC: Secure Planet, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM163003

    Advanced Tactical Facial Recognition at a Distance Technology There has long been a need to quickly identify persons at long range with high accuracy. For tactical applications, solutions need to be compact, lightweight and frugal with power. Solutions also need to be fully functional in environments where communications are limited or non-existent. Challenges to meeting these requirements a ...

  7. SOCOM SmartContent

    SBC: Reinventing Geospatial, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM163005

    Department of Defense (DOD) and Intelligence Community (IC) information systems increasingly rely on access to enterprise hosted cloud infrastructures, such as the Intelligence Community Information Technology Enterprise (ICITE), for data exploitation. However, many DOD operators are required to operate in austere situations, where disconnected, limited or intermittent (DIL) communications impose ...

  8. Color Night Vision Sensor

    SBC: optX imaging systems, LLC            Topic: SOCOM163006

    The realization of true color high resolution imaging systems that operate with an effective engagement range in both daylight and low light level conditions presents a difficult yet necessary challenge. Enabling color visualization cues under all illumination conditions for tactical imaging systems can greatly increase situational awareness, increase target detection/identification time, and redu ...

  9. Freeze Dried Plasma for Canines

    SBC: Mantel Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM163007

    Hemorrhage is the leading cause of preventable death in combat, and damage control resuscitation (DCR) research has shown that plasma is a superior resuscitation fluid for severely injured, bleeding canine casualties. However, cold chain requirements make managing fresh frozen plasma (FFP) supply logistics difficult in austere environments. Limited supplies of freeze dried plasma (FDP) are curr ...
