DSCI to Improve Soldiers' Hunting Abilities

May 27, 2011
By George Seffers

D and S Consultants Incorporated, Eatontown, New Jersey, is being awarded just over $7 million for perceptual training systems and tools. The company will conduct applied research and advanced technology development based on requirements and design recommendations for adapting or developing technologies to create a prototype for users that can improve the training of combat hunter-like knowledge, skills and abilities. Specifically these tools will be evaluated for use as performance assessment and training tools to support enhanced observation, combat trafficking (i.e., observing the physical terrain), and tactical profiling (i.e., observing the human terrain). The result will enhance the warfighter's ability to perceive, observe, collect, and share critical information on people, places and insurgent activity to improve situational awareness, and to facilitate collaboration and information analysis. The Office of Naval Research, Arlington, Virginia, is the contracting activity.

Boeing to Design Shipboard Free Electron Laser Weapon

September 8, 2010
By George Seffers

The Boeing Company, Huntsville, Alabama, is being awarded a more than $23 million task order for the critical design of a 100-kW class Free Electron Laser (FEL) device to demonstrate scaleability of the necessary physics and engineering for an eventual MW class FEL.  The Navy FEL Innovative Naval Prototype Program will encompass the transition from a demonstrated 14 kW FEL capability, currently at hand, to a weapon class 100-kW class capability, which is intended to provide the physics and engineering information needed to support a MW class FEL device development.  The desired outcome of this effort is to transfer laboratory capability to industry and to assess potential industrial roles in supporting the procurement program for FEL weapon systems. The Navy also wishes to gain insight into industry's longer term interest in participating in the follow-on integration, at a government test facility, or elsewhere, of the FEL device into a complete naval weapon system test bed to validate the concept for shipboard use. The Office of Naval Research, Arlington, Virginia, is the contracting activity.
