- SBIR Phase I
Case Study (1/3)
Holistic Health & Fitness Management System
This direct-to-Phase II project asked commercial technology innovators to develop state-of-the-art solutions to improve the physical, mental, and spiritual wellness of Army Soldiers. Three companies refined their Software-as-a-Service platforms and tested them across four distinct Army units to gather insights on the user experience, ease of access, and ability to make decisions with data. One of the companies was recently selected for a Phase II extension worth nearly $1 million for its enterprise-level, human performance platform. This platform is currently available for use across 28 brigades with the goal of integrating similar solutions to a total of 110 brigades across the Army by 2030.
Case Study (2/3)
Anti-Jam was an advanced technology development project that produced a jam-hard antenna for position navigation, and timing in only about one year. It was initially developed for dismounted use and is now undergoing development for integration onto vehicle platforms, which means opportunities for other contracts for the companies and a low-cost system with broad applicability for the Army.
Case Study (3/3)
Field Artillery Autonomy Resupply (FAAR)
In just 12 weeks, the six Field Artillery Autonomy Resupply (FAAR) Cohort companies presented 14 interoperable solutions to mitigate lack of efficiency in firing munitions and the physical strain on Soldiers caused by manually resupplying heavy munitions in the self-propelled howitzer. Two of the six companies transitioned to other DoD organizations to further develop their technologies. The other companies continued to follow-on projects in support of the FAAR effort where they further refined their technologies.
