The US Naval Surface Warfare Center, Indian Head Division, seeks a partner to commercialize a military-grade lead-free primer for ammunition and other applications
Researchers at the Army Environmental Research and Development Center (ERDC) have patented a ‘green’ solution for bullets and other lead objects that makes possible the performance and low costs associated with traditional lead designs. Patent filings No. 6,095,052 and No. 2004/0229076 describe the compaction of fine lead wire that has been electroplated or otherwise coated with zinc. This results in a lead-based product that satisfactorily inhibits corrosion and lead leaching when exposed to weather and water. These patents are available for licensing and commercialization.
The Portable Chemical Sterilizer (PCS) is a rapid, portable and power-free option for the sterilization of contaminated objects or surfaces. This patent pending technology has been developed and tested by the U.S. Army-Soldier Systems Center, Combat Feeding Directorate in Natick, MA and is available for licensing and commercialization. Patent filings cover both the chemical application and the sterilizer vessels.
Field personnel with the US Army Corps of Engineers – New York District (USACE), have developed a self-adjusting, variable height bulkhead for use along beaches and waterways where it is desirable to preserve the view, but control is needed against wave action and storm surges. The USACE is interested in cooperative research and development efforts for this technology, and in licensing out its pending patent (Pat. Appl.
The US Army seeks partners to co-develop, license and commercialize battery innovations to improve energy density, cycle life, energy transfer, temperature range, and safety. These innovations include enhancements to electrodes, electrolytes, and even circuit breakers.
The US Navy has developed a high-fidelity, non-explosive training aid to mimic Composition C-4, a common plastic explosive, and seeks a commercial partner to license and commercialize the technology
The US Army Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center seeks a partner to commercialize a military-grade adjustable buttstock assembly that is easy to use yet secure against involuntary actuation
Army engineers have developed and patented a novel modular fence barrier in response to border control and security demands. A preferred design of the barrier system deploys pre-manufactured panels and connectors that can be swiftly assembled by unskilled labor.
The US Army seeks to commercialize through patent licensing a unique portable griddle that operates on high-energy liquid fuels such as JP-8 or diesel.
The US Navy seeks to commercialize through licensing an easy-to-make, versatile substrate for Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS). Even though SERS has been investigated for sensing purposes since 1974, the lack of off-the-shelf substrates and reproducibility have been the two key weak points that have prevented this useful technique from being more widely practiced.
