About Concentris Systems
Concentris Systems is a company that received a Department of Defense SBIR/STTR grant for a project entitled: Distributed Services Framework for Mobile Ad-hoc Networks. The abstract given for this project is as follows: The proposed project will result in the design of a 'Distributed Services Framework' (DSF) which provides a service-oriented, distributed architecture for the hosting, advertising, discovery and invoking of 'distributed services' across Army 'Mobile Ad-hoc Networks' (MANETs). Example distributed services include devices or applications (storage, processing power, video, sensors, Internet access). The Concentris team will investigate the CONOPS and design a framework that meets military requirements and industry guidelines. Key tasks will include investigating Army concepts and applications, researching DSF methodologies (framework workflow, service creation, deployment and security), and creating an open architecture API library for future developers to implement DSF services.Concentris Systems is a company that received a Department of Defense SBIR/STTR grant for a project entitled: A Spectrally Dynamic Berth Light for Active Circadian Cycle Management. The abstract given for this project is as follows: This three-phase SBIR project will develop an actively managed circadian rhythm berth- light fixture that meets the stringent requirements of the Navy for shipboard replacement of conventional fluorescent fixtures. The fixture will combine high-efficiency solid-state lighting (SSL) and an intuitive user interface that guides the user in the timed application of blue light to self-manage sleep cycles. The electronic design will leverage commercially available components to achieve cost-efficiencies, and will be flexible and upgradeable to support additional features such as central control. SSL-based lighting will also benefit the Navy with improved reliability and endurance and by reducing the total life-cycle cost of berth lighting.
