IS4S Wins Army Phase I SBIR
Integrated Solutions for Systems (IS4S) announced today that it has been selected for an Army SBIR Phase I contract entitled "3 kW Lightweight Efficient Generator". IS4S is partnered with Azmark Aero Systems in Gilbert, AZ to perform the base Phase I R&D effort which totals $100,000 over a six month period with a $50,000 option over a four month subsequent period. The focus of this effort is to design, develop and demonstrate a compact, lightweight and efficient multi-fueled, 3 kW generator unit. With soldiers very dependent on electrical power for various communications and electronics, a lightweight portable generator with multi-fuel compatibility would increase flexibility for the soldier and the unit, while reducing the logistical footprint.
IS4S Wins $1.2M Software Development Contract with Textron
Integrated Solutions for Systems (IS4S) announced today that it has been awarded a $1.2M software development contract by Textron Marine and Land Systems (TM&LS). IS4S will develop new software modules responsible for transfer of information between vehicle sub-systems on board Textron Systems Tactical Armored Patrol Vehicle (TAPV) currently under contract with the Canadian government. Textron Systems’ Tactical Armoured Patrol Vehicle (TAPV) is a 4x4 wheeled armoured vehicle specifically engineered and designed to provide survivability, mobility and versatility across the asymmetric battlefield over the full spectrum of operations. The comprehensive, modern design is aimed at shielding troops from roadside bombs and blasts while providing large power reserves for future electronics enhancements, with an ergonomically designed interior for optimum comfort and payload. The vehicle has been tested extensively to confirm ballistic, blast, mobility and reliability levels that meet or exceed the Canadian TAPV requirements.
IS4S Awarded Phase I SBIR to Develop Stability Control for Unmanned Systems
TARDEC awarded IS4S a Phase I SBIR to develop a stability control system for unmanned vehicles. By leveraging advances in perception sensors, computing power, and data fusion, IS4S proposal seeks to develop a tightly integrated system that perceives the future terrain/environment, calculates the vehicle dynamic response, and either selects a path/vehicle state that does not create rollover conditions and/or warns an operator of the potential instability in time for a corrective response. Such as system would significantly reduce military vehicle accidents and save lives.
