Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N04-192
Budget: 08/29/05 - 02/28/06

To meet the Marines' need for high speed ship-to-shore and land mobility, the USMC Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle (EFV) is being equipped to provide a leap-ahead improvement over the capabilities of its predecessor, the 30-year old Amphibious Assault Vehicle (AAV). A critical component of improving the EFV's lethality and survivability is to gr...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A01-033
Budget: 04/23/05 - 04/23/05

RMSV feels that with an integrated systems approach to the airless tire and wheel design using advanced modern materials, such as carbon, Kevlar or Spectra filaments in either a polyurethane or high toughness epoxy resin system, will allow the identification and development of a logical, fieldable, robust and durable airless tire and wheel solut...

Phase 1 SBIR

Topic: N04-192
Budget: 04/12/05 - 10/12/05

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A04-244
Budget: 01/31/05 - 07/31/05

For advanced virtual simulations to produce meaningful results, they must be built on a foundation of accurate and validated models. Conventional methods for measuring and validating model parameters are expensive, slow and require costly specialized testing equipment. ` RMSV's solution is based on the concept of optimizing the virtual mode...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A03-212
Budget: 01/08/04 - 07/08/04

Vehicle stability is typically compromised when the high mobility, payload and transportability requirements placed on military tactical vehicles are dependent on conventional passive suspension technologies. Rod Millen Special Vehicles (RMSV) is confident that with the proper selection and development of an advanced suspension system for milit...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A03-027
Budget: 12/23/03 - 06/23/04

For a new paradigm in mobility, future military ground vehicles may look to animals for the added benefits of walking or crawling motion to supplement advanced wheel drive systems. Such hybrid mobility approaches show promise towards overcoming tradeoffs associated with a dedicated wheel or track-based system. A critical requirement for wheel p...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Special Operations Command
Topic: SOCOM01-009
Budget: 03/20/02 - 09/20/02

High performance suspended seat technology offers significant advantages in reducing acute injuries, long term disability, and fatigue associated with high-speed maritime operations. Our proposed concept will apply a systems design approach to addressing the needs of SOF personnel over all conditions, particularly rough seas. Our novel concept...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A01-033
Budget: 01/10/02 - 01/27/03

Breakthrough airless tire technology offers significant advantages to the mobility of vehicles currently dependent on the integrity of a pneumatic bladder to carry out their function. The application of non-traditional advanced composite filament and matrix materials such as carbon, Kevlar, and Spectra to an airless wheel design allows for a li...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A99-090
Budget: 01/30/01 - 02/01/04

The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the benefits of a computer controlled active damper suspension system based on a magnetorheological (MR) fluid controllable damper for off-road ground vehicles and that Rod Millen Special Vehicles (RMSV) has the expertise, equipment and facilities to develop an active MR fluid damper based suspens...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A99-090
Budget: 01/06/00 - 01/01/01

Computer controlled suspensions using active magnetorheological (MR) fluid damper actuators offer three methods for improved suspension performance: 1)The ability to respond to a greater number of critical vehicle variables. 2) Passive dampers typically only respond to suspension velocity. Active damper systems can respond to suspension disp...
