Concurrent Technologies Finalist in NAMC SMP Competition

Concurrent Technologies Finalist in NAMC SMP Competition

Concurrent Technologies Corporation (CTC) has been selected as one of six finalists in a US contest seeking innovative solutions for US Army vehicle maintenance and repair challenges, the company announced on 4 August.

The finalists in the National Advanced Mobility Consortium (NAMC) Smart Motor Pool (SMP) Pitch Competition include some of the world’s leading defence contractors. CTC advanced to this third and final round of the competition with a project entitled “Improved Readiness through the Development of a Mobile Maintenance Application.” The company is applying a mix of creative readiness and engineering innovations in technology from across the DoD and FEMA for ground vehicles for a novel, scalable, low-risk solution.

The competition focuses on several technology areas: improving the technical proficiency of vehicle maintainers; providing the needed maintenance equipment and tools; coordinating maintenance scheduling and personnel usage; consistently capturing timely, accurate vehicle maintenance data; and an open ‘Big Ideas’ category. The ultimate goal is to ensure the readiness of a Brigade Combat Team fleet of vehicles.

The six finalists will present their proposed solutions on 10 August at this year’s Ground Vehicle Systems Engineering Technology Symposium (GVSETS). Senior Army leaders will announce the winners the following day. The finalists have received $10,000 in prize money, and $40,000 more will be distributed at the discretion of the panel of judges, either in a winner-takes-all approach or a division based on the pitches. The winner will be chosen on novelty, applicability/impact, cost and time to implement, ease of use, required maintenance and/or subsequent costs for sustained use, and scalability/deployability. This effort and visibility could lead to potential new contract opportunities.

The NAMC is a nationwide alliance of traditional and non-traditional small businesses, large defence contractors, academic institutions, and other research organisations involved with translational R&D of the complete range of prototype, ground vehicle and robotics systems and technologies.
