Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Defense
Topic: SOCOM07-001
Budget: 08/08/16 - 02/07/18
PI: Alex Apps

The additional weight of add-on armor systems and extra equipment required by the fighting force, coupled with IED tactical warfare has negatively impacted the performance of tactical wheeled vehicles. In 2013, the Ground Mobility Vehicle (GMV) 1.1 Program of Record was awarded by USSOCOM to resolve the capability gaps of the HMMWV-based GMV1.0...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Special Operations Command
Topic: SOCOM14-005
Budget: 11/12/14 - 05/11/15

USSOCOM has expressed a desire to prevent the clogging of the seawater intakes aboard the SOC-R craft by exploring a closed-loop cooling system that does not require the use of off-board raw water. The desired solution will not degrade the current SOC-R craft capabilities by creating drag or causing cavitation that would affect the performance o...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N133-147
Budget: 01/15/14 - 11/14/14

More than 8900 MTVR s are in service with the Marine Corps and with its proven off road performance and survivable armor package, the MTVR continues to be heavily used in theater for logistics and other missions. The MTVR currently uses mild to medium strength steel or ductile iron components in the TAK-4 suspension, which have not been optimize...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N121-002
Budget: 01/02/14 - 07/10/15

GS Engineering has developed through Phase I SBIR efforts, a variable VCI solution to evaluate and characterize vehicle operating terrain, for dynamic selection of CTIS operating modes, with no required operator input. By continually monitoring the terrain and adjusting the operating mode and associated tire pressures, mobility is increased in s...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N122-132
Budget: 10/16/12 - 04/16/13

The Navy in support of the sailor has identified the need for an advanced ballistic shield for Crew Served Weapons Stations that will allow for a required level of ballistic protection without interfering with other shipboard duties that need to be performed. This proposed system will protect the sailor from the increased asymmetric threats that...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N121-002
Budget: 05/09/12 - 11/09/12

The Marine Corps in support of the war fighter has identified the need to increase the mobility of the HMMWV platform to conform to the ORD. As operational theaters constantly change and require the HMMWV platform to operate in soils that have a RCI less than the current vehicle VCI the overall ability of the fighting force to operate in terrain...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A09-184
Budget: 03/16/10 - 09/16/10

GS Engineering (GSE) will develop improvements to current US Army mine rollers that will improve ground-following performance and reduce wheel hop by 50 – 90%, with increased mobility and increased effective threat clearing speed. This will be accomplished by applying advanced suspension technologies to the system, subsystem design changes for i...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A08-131
Budget: 01/26/10 - 01/26/12

Alternative processes, tools and techniques are required for installation and support of traditional steel and segmented band track systems using only two crew members. The logistical burden of the current system of using 3-4 crew members and additional heavy equipment is not feasible to support vehicles in the future. The new system must allow...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Special Operations Command
Topic: SOCOM07-001
Budget: 01/02/09 - 03/01/11

The additional weight of add-on armor systems and extra equipment required by the fighting force, coupled with IED tactical warfare has negatively impacted the performance of tactical wheeled vehicles. This is demonstrated by overstressed suspension systems, higher vehicle center of gravity, increased rollovers, and reduced performance on all t...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A08-131
Budget: 11/19/08 - 02/22/10

Alternative processes, tools and techniques are required for installation and support of new lightweight segmented track systems using only two crew members. The logistical burden of the current system of using 3-4 crew members and additional heavy equipment is not feasible to support future lightweight vehicles. The new system must allow two c...
