Optimized Route Finding for Air and Ground Vehicles

The US Army seeks industry partners to license and commercialize an advanced route finding technology for air  and ground vehicles . The Automated Impacts Routing (AIR) software provides users the ability to find optimized paths through airspace or ground space taking into consideration multiple and dynamic adverse conditions that can determine mission success or failure.

Linear Rope Brake System for Aerial Delivery

The Army Natick Soldier Research, Development & Engineering Center (NSRDEC) has developed an aerial delivery device to provide control over dissemination of supplies through a novel linear braking system. Sometimes supplies need to be lowered from a helicopter to the ground, such as when the military resupplies ground troops or aid organizations lower medicine/food to civilian disaster areas.
