Group 2 (<55lbs) Unmanned Aerial System for Special Operations Forces Tactical-Level Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance OperationsSBC: Sealandaire Technologies, Inc. Topic: SOCOM172005
SeaLandAire Technologies, Inc. (SLA) proposes to meet this Group 2 need with an electric drive concept that will be capable of a 20-30 lbs. modular payload, with comparable range and endurance to current grp 2 ISR UAS, while still maintaining sufficient ISR capabilities. This UAS concept is able to covertly and safely deliver payload to within 1 meter accuracy, then extract a different payload an ...SBIR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseSpecial Operations Command
SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: NGA172002
Toyon Research Corporation proposes to research and develop algorithms for low-shot object detection, adapting popular techniques to address the complexities inherent in ATR for remote sensing. Traditional object detection algorithms rely on large corpora of data which may not be available for more exotic targets (such as foreign military assets), and therefore, traditional Convolutional Neural Ne ...SBIR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseNational Geospatial-Intelligence Agency
Group 2 (<55lbs) Unmanned Aerial System for Special Operations Forces Tactical-Level Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance OperationsSBC: Knight Technical Solutions, LLC Topic: SOCOM172005
The proposed Group 2 UAS is a long endurance fixed wing aircraft, a secure communications system and a portable ground station. The light weight aircraft features a high aspect ratio wing and is powered by an electric ducted fan for maximum efficiency. The modular aircraft system is one man portable and designed to be packed out on a molle backpack configuration. The conceptual airframe design ...SBIR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseSpecial Operations Command
SBC: Swift Engineering Inc. Topic: SOCOM172004
Military UAS platforms are crucial for conducting ISR and providing real-time offensive and defensive information. However, smaller electric systems that can be carried in the field suffer from poor endurance and low payload weights. As endurance requirements increase, battery and airframe weight grow exponentially to extend range capabilities. This results in a downward spiral of weight increases ...SBIR Phase I 2017 Department of DefenseSpecial Operations Command
SBC: MEMS START, LLC Topic: SOCOM17003
MEMS Start proposes to develop a novel, intelligent and cost-effective class of ultra-wide field-of-view, high resolution compact optical system for micro/nano spacecraft. Easily deployable nano-satellite constellation equipped with the proposed optical system and intelligent image processing for relevant data extraction would enable new capabilities of real-time continuous surveillance and commun ...SBIR Phase I 2017 Department of DefenseSpecial Operations Command
SBC: Physical Optics Corporation Topic: CBD171004
To address the DoDs Chemical and Biological Defense (CBD) program need for the development of real-time analytical technology for multicomponent vapor identification and quantification, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new Photoacoustic Gasses Optical Detector and Analyzer (PAGODA). It is based on a new system design that utilizes a novel, POC-developed photoacoustic transdu ...SBIR Phase I 2017 Department of DefenseOffice for Chemical and Biological Defense
SBC: Space Micro Inc. Topic: SOCOM17003
Space Micro proposes to develop innovative CubeSat payloads and technology that will support USSOCOM missions and/or advance CubeSat technology relevant to USSOCOM missions. leveraging previous DARPA space communications R&D on F6, we propsoal a novel CubeSat compatible communications concept called SiMax.SBIR Phase I 2017 Department of DefenseSpecial Operations Command
SBC: EXQUADRUM INC Topic: SOCOM17003
Exquadrum proposes to develop and demonstrate a CubeSat scale propulsion system that will provide responsive and high-thrust propulsive capability. The CubeSat propulsion system will have a high impulse density, use extremely small amounts of electric power, be capable of variable thrust levels, and have the capability of dwelling years between propulsive events. Other benefits of the proposed m ...SBIR Phase I 2017 Department of DefenseSpecial Operations Command
SBC: SOAR TECHNOLOGY INC Topic: SOCOM17004
Many current approaches applying big data analytics to defensive cyberspace operations (DCO) are based on two premises: queries that find known anomalies (e.g., indicators of compromise) and/or applying machine learning to detect anomalous behavior. While some claim to predict attacks, in truth those attacks must have already been detected somewhere, characterized, and added to a knowledge base. W ...SBIR Phase I 2017 Department of DefenseSpecial Operations Command
SBC: TREX ENTERPRISES CORPORATION Topic: SOCOM163003
Positively identifying a target at tactical ranges is a formidable task that is hindered by target occlusion, atmospheric turbulence, hardware limitations, focus errors, lens aberrations, and blur from unstable platforms. The solution proposed solves these issues by combining a recently developed Digital Adaptive Optics technology with advanced facial recognition algorithms, to arrive at a man-po ...SBIR Phase I 2017 Department of DefenseSpecial Operations Command
