  1. Low Noise, High Efficiency Hydraulics for Mobile Robots

    SBC: Ekso Bionics Inc            Topic: SB103001

    We propose to develop an exoskeleton device that significantly reduces the load the user bears while introducing a negligible metabolic impact. The proposed device employs a novel approach to the issues associated with excessive loading and represents a significant deviation from previous attempts to meet this need. We will develop a lightweight lower extremity exoskeleton for load carriage assis ...

  2. TALOS Hybrid Electric Power Unit

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: SOCOM14001

    Cornerstone Research Group Inc.'s (CRG) demonstrated expertise in advanced optimization techniques and lightweight electric propulsion systems presents USSOCOM with the opportunity to obtain an embedded rechargeable power generation and management system capable of long endurance missions that is small, lightweight, and has low acoustic and thermal signatures. The proposing team's track ...

  3. Research Enabled Activity Consolidated To Optimize Resources

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: SOCOM14001

    To address the SOCOM need for a power supply for the Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit (TALOS), Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to investigate new Research Enabled Activity Consolidated To Optimize Resources (REACTOR). This proposed research is intended to explore current state-of-the-art energy storage solutions with an eye toward development of emergent technologies and innovations ...

  4. Solid-State Battery for the Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit

    SBC: Soild Power, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM14001

    The Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit (TALOS) program is tasked with integrating several systems that require electric power. While systems such as internal combustion engines could conceivably meet the 4-5kW projected power requirement in a manageable package, this would result in undesirable heat and noise signatures and make indoor operation impractical. The ideal solution would be a battery ...

  5. Advanced Transparent Armor Materials and Manufacturing Methods

    SBC: SURMET, CORP.            Topic: SOCOM14002

    "Current glass-based transparent armor has two major deficiencies: 1) It is very heavy, and therefore can compromise performance and helicopter transportability of vehicles; and 2) It is very thick, and therefore can compromise visual signature of vehicles. Advanced technology ceramic transparent armor removes both these deficiencies and provides a twofold improvement in performance, but costs 6-1 ...

  6. Ka-band Spread Spectrum

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: SOCOM12001

    SATCOM On-The-Move (OTM) is one of the greatest operational and tactical advantages our troops have. The SATCOM terminals available pose a number of practical constraints resulting in less than universal usage. Traditional reflectors are high profile and difficult to integrate on aircraft and ground vehicles. The ability to maintain link during high-g maneuvers such as travelling over rough terr ...

  7. Improved Tire Technology for Special Operations Vehicles

    SBC: AMERICAN ENGINEERING GROUP LLC            Topic: SOCOM11004

    American Engineering Group (AEG) will study the feasibility of utilizing carbon-fiber multiple hoop technology in developing a zero-pressure tire-wheel system. AEG will conduct feasibility study to develop this technology to produce a high-speed, off-road tire that can survive terrain and ballistic threats. AEG will work with Goodyear Tire Company (Akron, Ohio) & Community Tire(St Louis, MO) on th ...

  8. Compact Quiet Microclimate Cooling System

    SBC: Rini Technologies Inc            Topic: HSB042006

    The Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit (TALOS) is being developed by the United States Special Operations Command (USSCOM). Warfighters operating in hot regions while wearing encapsulating Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) will require a Compact and Quiet Microclimate Cooling System (CQ-MCS) to protect the suit operators from heat stress. RINI Technologies has developed a 1 liter sized man-por ...

  9. Laser Direct Deposition Applied to the Manufacturing of Bulk, Net Shaped Metallic Glasses

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: DTRA11003

    We propose to develop reactive composite materials with sufficient strength and stiffness to serve as structural components for penetrating weapons and other munitions. The composites will consist of two materials that react with each other, in either oxidation-reduction (such as in a thermite) or bimetallic reactions. One component will be in the form of fiber, wire, or wire-mesh, within a bondin ...

  10. Low-Energy Maskless Lithography to Mitigate Radiation Effects in Advanced Nanoscale Microelectronics

    SBC: Multibeam Corporation            Topic: DTRA112003

    The need for novel weapons to defeat urban targets and rapidly immobalize enemy combatants hiding in bunkers, caves, and basements requires new weapons and tactics. Thermobaric warheads can provide tailored blast response optimized for the defeat of these targets with low collateral damage. In this Phase I SBIR program, Powdermet will develop surface-coated metallic particles that can deliver tail ...
