AbstractInnovations Plus seeks to provide the marine with competitive advantages and dramatically reduce hearing damage associated with firearms. Most small arm weapons do not include any form of sound suppression nor effective flash retardant. Thus, they subject the marine to harmful levels of noise and may unnecessarily expose his position. Noise induced hearing loss is on the rise for U.S. servicemen and women. In 2004, the VBA paid out more than $400 million for service related auditory disabilities. During Phase I, we proved that Integral Suppressed Weapon Barrels (ISWB) are feasible and advantageous. During Phase II, we will devise ISWB solutions that interface with current weapon systems and accessories without modification and meet the project requirements. Scientific methods and processes will be utilized. Our team has the ''know how'' and the tools to deliver these solutions. The Co-Investigator’s patented Carbon Fiber application process can reduce typical barrel and suppressor weight by 30 to 50% without compromising structural integrity and it can increase heat dissipation by a factor of 5. The resultant product is lighter with an increased life span. Our T&E suppressor consultant is the best. Mr. Alan C. Paulson has published hundreds of articles and four books regarding suppressors.
