The USMC’s call for durable, light-weight and affordable exhaust systems for amphibious vehicles is answered by Triton’s light-weight, multilayered composite exhaust system technology. Designed to replace legacy and envisioned metal exhaust system technologies, initial prototype testing demonstrated that Triton’s technology reduces overall weight by approximately 50 percent at approximately 55 percent of the target cost with no performance degradation. Triton Systems, Inc. specializes in developing lightweight, affordable composite products to replace heavy and/or metallic structures to resolve problems of critical importance for military and commercial customers. We seek partnerships with government organizations/test facilities to demonstrate/validate prototype system capabilities and with prime contractors to license the manufacturing and incorporation of the technology. The initial target platform for this technology is the USMC Amphibious Combat Vehicle (ACV).
Triton Systems, Inc. develops advanced technologies for commercial, industrial, and Government use and is currently designing and building a low-power, hand-operated reverse osmosis (RO) system to desalinate brackish water which will allow Warfighters to sustain themselves until resupply operations can be conducted. For use by USMC Warfighters, this capability is smaller in size than current hand-operated sea water RO systems and includes an energy recovery pump to minimize operator fatigue and special membrane coatings that will increase water production and minimize fouling. This will permit continued operation in austere environments for several weeks when resupply of potable water cannot be regularly made. Our goal is to transition this technology to the Marine Corps so that it becomes a part of their Modified Table of Organization (MTO&E) at the squad level.
A recent report estimates that only about 7% of Marines insert earplugs correctly. Blast and Noise-Induced Hearing Loss (B/NIHL) and tinnitus are the top two disability claims for US soldiers and veterans [GAO Report, GAO-11-114]. The USMC wishes to reduce these numbers by developing an improved hearing protection device. Triton Systems, a technology development company providing innovative solutions to the government and industry, is developing the True Awareness Hearing Protector, which uses a passive acoustic filter that allows low level noise through while blocking harmful loud noises. The design minimizes the effects on the warfighters’ situational awareness and their ability to detect and localize low level noise. Our goal is to integrate and transition this technology into government and commercial markets by licensing our Intellectual Property to manufacturing partners.
Triton Systems, a technology development company that provides innovative solutions for military and commercial applications, is currently developing a communication system for helmeted divers to replace the current system developed in the 1960’s. Currently these divers have difficulty communicating among themselves and with the surface due to outdated equipment and sustained background noise levels over 100 dBA. The system has been prototyped, and increased intelligibility has been demonstrated for divers both transmitting and receiving messages. While this communication system has been designed specifically for helmeted divers, it could be adapted for use by other branches of military service with unique communication system requirements. Triton’s goal is to integrate and transition this technology into government and prime contractor systems for specialized communications systems.
The US Navy is looking to rapidly manufacture parts while at sea, specifically develop qualified materials and an Additive Manufacturing (AM) methodology to produce defect free parts and maintain geometric tolerance in a shipboard environment. With over 25 years’ experience, Triton Systems Inc. (TSI) is a technology incubator that develops materials and systems applications. Currently, TSI is developing non-halogenated flame retardant thermoplastic feedstocks for use in additive manufacturing of polymeric components in a closed environment, where the risk of fire and smoke are especially critical. The goal of this Phase II effort, hopefully the feedstock and fabricated components will meet the stringent Navy Flame, Smoke, and Toxicity (FST) requirements. TSI is looking for a partner to help commercialize the feedstock to be used in a variety of 3D printers.
The wireless sensing system developed allows for sensing in and around the body (e.g. hypoxia monitoring, physiological status monitoring, acoustic dosage, hearing protection validation). Triton Systems is a technology incubator with a long track-record of developing innovative solutions and successfully transitioning many of them to commercial products. The initial application is wireless in-ear pressure monitoring for pilots and is also being expanded for physiological status monitoring and acoustic dosage monitoring. The microsystem developed is the only in-ear sensing system platform successfully developed for extended use and continuous transmission of data. The first complete sensing systems have been developed. Triton also develops nonlinear hearing protection. Triton is seeking additional Defense customers in need of tiny sensing solutions such as hypoxia monitoring, and hearing protection validation.
Liner wear in spherical bearings can be accelerated by liquid and solid contamination. Preliminary testing has demonstrated that this contamination-resistant bearing reduces contamination without significant additional friction or cost, increasing bearing life, and reducing scheduled maintenance. The modification will not impact bearing installation time, procedures or required equipment. This patent-pending solution is targeted to the V-22 Osprey and other military rotorcraft being fielded in contaminant-rich environments, but has applications in construction equipment and motor vehicles. It can be adapted to custom and standard spherical bearing sizes, and is being developed and tested with a major bearing manufacturer. This advanced technology firm seeks program funding from program managers and prime contractors for implementation with other equipment operational in contaminant-rich environments.
