  1. Data in Transit Encryption Algorithms for Hand-held devices and Man-pack Radios

    SBC: GRIER FORENSICS, LLC            Topic: N162073

    To meet the Marine Corps' need for data in transit encryption algorithms for hand-held devices and man-pack radios, Grier Forensics proposes developing Violet. Violet is a new encryption algorithm, compatible with hand-held devices and man-pack radios, that protects the integrity and confidentiality of all data while fully supporting all forms of network transmission, including multicast. Violet w ...

  2. Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based C2 Digital Assistant

    SBC: Leverege LLC            Topic: N162074

    The Marine Corps seeks to employ advanced artificial intelligence (AI) technologies for its CAC2S program to reduce information overload, improve situational awareness (SA) and collaboration, and aid in Commander decision-making. Leverege will use its unrivaled subject matter expertise in CAC2S and its deep experience with cutting-edge machine learning techniques to research and test the optimal a ...

  3. Miniaturization of GPS Alternative Survey Equipment

    SBC: VETH RESEARCH ASSOCIATES LLC            Topic: N162076

    Accurate surveys of both position and azimuth are critical components of the artillery mission. These requirements must be met in all operational environments, including situations where GPS signals are degraded or denied. Currently, these requirements have been met using the Improved Position and Azimuth Determining System (IPADS). Unfortunately, the IPADS is based on older navigation sensor tech ...

  4. Electrical Scavenging and Energy Regeneration for Improved Vehicle Efficiency


    Improvements in fuel efficiency for the developing ACV 1.1 vehicle are sought. While relatively efficient, even the best vehicle turbodiesel engines have efficiencies of only 30-44% depending on operating condition. Since the engine inefficiency is the largest energy loss, we will focus on scavenging waste energy from power plant of the vehicle. Mainstream will also combine vehicle energy regenera ...

  5. Optically Based Small Arms Force-On-Force Training System

    SBC: COLE ENGINEERING SERVICES, INC.            Topic: N162080

    Team CESI recently demonstrated the design and implementation of a laser-less system through accurate engagements at realistic ranges (out to 375 meters) using a cloud-based server architecture and a minimalist Marine-worn subsystem. We propose to continue to mature this proof-of-principle technology. To compensate for poor location and orientation sensor accuracy Team CESIs implementation of OBSA ...

  6. SiC-Based High Voltage Capacitor Charging Innovations

    SBC: RCT Systems, Inc.            Topic: N162119

    Electromagnetic Railguns (EMRG) require high-voltage supplies to power pulse-forming-networks (PFN) through charging/discharging of High Voltage (HV) capacitors. Existing high-output-voltage power converters have inadequate power densities for shipboard applications. Additionally, most commercial high-output-voltage converters dont accept input voltages in the range of projected Navy power systems ...

  7. Low Power, Rapid Detector of Trace Underwater Explosives


    The current state-of-the-art for an underwater unexploded ordnance (UUXO) detector is a single analyte sensor for detection of TNT, which only partially addresses the Navys requirement to detect the full range of explosive threats. Because of the low solubility of explosive compounds in water, the concentration of explosives near UUXO is likely to be extremely low. Furthermore, once the explosive ...

  8. Trans-wafer laser packaging technology for sensitive MEMS devices

    SBC: LASERA LLC            Topic: N162132

    The proposed objective of this proposal is to develop and demonstrate a robust, high-throughput laser bonding technique universally applicable to wafer-level joining of silicon with various other materials including silicon, polymers, glasses, ceramics and metals. This unique approach utilizes optical transparency of Si to mid-infrared laser light. Using our patented experimental technique and uni ...

  9. Intranasal Cooling for Encephalopathy Prevention (ICEP)

    SBC: KEY TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N171002

    This work will validate a new method to quickly and safely cool the brain and body in a combat setting to help those with traumatic brain injury (TBI). Cooling the brain reduces edema (swelling), which has been shown to improve survival rates and brain function. Current techniques that try to provide early cooling for TBI are impractical in the combat setting, have potential safety risks or they a ...

  10. Driver Performance Monitoring through Electronic Trip Tickets

    SBC: Dsplogic Inc            Topic: N171003

    Thousands of DoD personnel drive US Government vehicles each day. Their driving behavior has direct impact on fuel costs, maintenance costs and most importantly, human safety. Reducing costs and avoiding mishaps depends, therefore, upon the governments ability to effectively train drivers, monitor their driving behavior, and identify drivers in need of remedial training. Currently, the Marine Corp ...
