  5. Handheld Hidden Chamber Detection

    SBC: VAWD APPLIED SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: SOCOM173004

    VAWD has extensive experience developing technologies and products for Sense Through The Wall (STTW) and RF Penetration through materials. Based on our experience we believe that the RF spectrum is a natural fit to solve this problem. Therefore we have constrained our trade space for an optimized microwave technology solution.VAWD proposes techniques that will use Multi-Frequency discrimination in ...

  8. Foreign Like Weapon Production Capability

    SBC: Knight's Armament            Topic: SOCOM172003

    In the proposed effort, KAC will establish a process for reverse engineering and redesigning foreign weapons, primarily the 7.62x54R PKM and the 12.7x108mm NSV. Our engineers will use laser scanning to reverse engineer weapons from our on-site museum. We will reverse engineer the bolt from the PKM in order to demonstrate the viability of the laser scanner, our engineers, and our machine shop to co ...
