U.S. Army Awards SBIR Phase III Contract to ENIG for Electromagnetic Explosive Warhead (EMEW) for Scalable Lethality
ENIG has been selected by the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) and awarded by the U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) (Aberdeen, MD) and SBIR Phase III for the company’s current Electromagnetic Explosive Warhead (EMEW) technology program with ARL.
“As the U.S. Army looks to the future for longer-term solutions, providing warfighters with a range of effects, the development of a new class of multifunctional munitions is critical,” said ENIG President, Eric N. Enig. “We’re pleased to be transitioning elements of our EMEW technology to DARPA to allow for development of enhanced capabilities for the warfighter”, he noted, adding that the company has developed collaborative partnerships with ARL and DARPA in an overarching research and development framework to utilize large-scale shockwave physics codes, magnetohydrodynamics codes, and in-house developed analytic codes for design and analysis.
“For ENIG, an SBIR Phase III is especially important because it encompasses two of the primary objectives of the EMEW program: commercialization, and — more importantly to our DoD customers — the transition of EMEW technologies from current SBIR projects into DoD acquisition programs”, he added.
