Description

The Department of Defense (DOD) is seeking proposals for the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I program. The specific topic of the solicitation is the "Mobile Objective Vehicle Emulator (MOVE)" and is being conducted by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency. The objective of this research is to develop an agile, scalable, all-electric vehicle emulator that can replicate the seismic, acoustic, and magnetic signatures of various sized vehicle classes for Counter-WMD sensing techniques. The emulator should be capable of testing near-field and far-field MASINT sensors and should be able to traverse a straight tunnel at speeds up to 15 mph while transmitting a simultaneous combination of the source-vehicle acoustic, magnetic, and seismic signatures for a sustained period of at least 10 minutes. The Phase I design and engineering phase will be supported by recorded seismic, acoustic, and magnetic data from three different source-vehicle types. The Phase II objective is to demonstrate a fully capable all-electric vehicle simulator system within an underground facility. Phase III commercialization opportunities include applications for self-driving vehicles, city/county traffic management, and logistics delivery tracking services. The solicitation is open until June 12, 2024. For more information, visit the SBIR topic link or the solicitation agency website.
