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.

The Walter Reed Army Institute of Research has developed a portable system to attract mosquitoes and other biting insects for pest and disease surveillance of an area. Military and public health personnel are stationed around the world which increases the possibility of acquiring a vector borne disease.
The ability to selectively adjust levels and flow rates in fluid control systems is a fundamental aspect of dredged material and fluid management, and necessary to numerous farm and industrial processes. Historically, fluid management structures such as gates and weirs, offer limited options for controlling levels and volume. Installation is generally permanent, with modifications being difficult and expensive.
The US Army Research Institute of Infectious Diseases has developed a method to eliminate immunoassay inconsistency due to background effects. Immunological-based assays, such as ELISA (planar) or bead-based, suspension microsphere assays, are plagued with background issues. Almost all clinical and environmental samples will generate a background signal, and this signal can vary tremendously from sample to sample.
The Hardened Alternative Trailer System (HATS) was developed through collaborative efforts between the Army Engineer Research and Development Center, Geotechnical and Structural Laboratory and Department of State, Bureau of Diplomatic Security, Physical Security Division, Research and Development Branch.
The more technologically advanced our military forces and emergency service providers have become, the more dependent they are on the availability of a reliable and accessible source of power. The Mobile Power Distribution System (MPDS) brings portable, adaptable and dependable energy to field operations. This containerized, ruggedized system supplies electricity to a variety of outlets and switches.
When we send our men and women to war, we owe them equipment designed to keep them as safe as humanly possible and that enhances their ability to accomplish the mission. The Modular Protective System (MPS) Multipurpose Guard Tower satisfies these requirements with a lightweight, rapidly-constructed protection system that can be expediently deployed in remote locations and accommodate crew-served weapons systems.
The US Air Force seeks a partner to license and commercialize its patent portfolio centered on several high performing chromophores with large effective two-photon absorption cross-sections
The US Navy seeks a partner to license and commercialize a pinless connector that replaces traditional pins of pinned connectors.
The Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) invention, PITCH, provides a versatile, ultra-compact, self-contained, scalable, optical (non-contact, EMI safe) ignition platform for initiation of secondary chemical reactions such as combustion, detonation, and gas generation for rapid chamber pressurization.
