Looking for ways to accelerate your new product offerings or for a high-potential innovation to build a company around? Join the Central Florida Tech Grove, NavalX Central Florida Tech Bridge, NavalX Mid-West Tech Bridge, and  NSWC Crane for a Tech Expo @ Tech Grove

The Naval Surface Warfare Center Crane Division is one of the key research and development centers in the US Navy creating innovative solutions for Electronic Warfare and full lifecycle support of multi-domain, multi-spectral EW systems, Special Operations Weapons, Sensor Integration, and Weaponry for the Expeditionary Warfighter. 

On August 15, Naval scientists and innovators from Crane will demonstrate and discuss three examples of world-class, patented tech they've developed. They'll explain how the Navy is currently using it, and provide examples of how the tech could be commercialized into a product or platform. The technologies that will be showcased include:

  • Drone tracking technology: an innovative system that uses imaging sensors to monitor for light reflections off of metals, polymers, and other manufactured materials, enabling it to detect, identify, and track drones at long-range distances.
  • Junctional tourniquet: a ready-to-market tourniquet solution, shaped like a hockey puck, that stops bleeding in hard-to-reach places (such as an armpit). This one is fully designed and just needs someone to take it to market.
  • Pressure Discriminating Cartridge Chamber: a patent-pending chamber designed to offer enhanced safety in a wide range of applications, easily integrated into multiple types of firearms, and offering reduced risks of unexpected live round use encountered during blank firing activities.
  • Silent ATV (All Terrain Vehicle): a robust engineering and technical demonstrator prototype solution that includes the electrical system of a high-speed electric ATV with open architecture to allow future enhancements such as modification of the commercial vehicle chassis, a specified max range per battery, a high maximum speed, an all-wheel drive drivetrain, and a two battery capacity with three different power outputs.

After the technology presentations, attendees will have a chance to talk with the scientists to learn more. 

Members of the NSWC Crane Technology Transfer team will be present as well to share information on the many ways you can partner with Crane to access these or any of the other 300+ patented innovations they have, collaborate in R&D, access expertise, and provide solutions.

Members of the Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division (NAWCTSD) will also be on-site to share information about technologies and partnership opportunities they offer.  

Don't miss this unique opportunity to gain access to the NavalX defense ecosystem and its powerful business opportunities!
