Enig Associates, Inc. (“ENIG”), the inventor and developer of the Magnetohydrodynamic Explosive Munition (MAHEMTM), and more recently Hybrid Electromagnetic Gun (HyGUNTM), was awarded today a U.S. patent entitled Explosive Device Utilizing Flux Compression Generator (Patent No. 9,658,026; Application 13/949,849) (“FLUXGENTM”).
At the Commercialization Catalyst conference at Tech Town III (Dayton, OH) on 4 DEC 2015, AFRL Executive Director, Douglas Ebersole and AFRL/SB Director, William Harrison, presented their visions for collaboration between AFRL scientists and engineers (S&E), industry partners, university leaders, investors, and entrepreneurs.
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.
ENIG, one of approximately twenty firms with recent Air Force SBIR and STTR awards, has been selected by SBIR TAP to participate in a six-week program designed to showcase a recent AFRL SBIR or STTR award.
ENIG, in collaboration with SRI International (Menlo Park, CA), has been selected and awarded by the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory’s (AFRL) Munition Directorate (RW), Eglin AFB, to develop a modeling methodology with predictive and inferential capabilities to address the mechanical limits of structural reactive materials (SRMs) using subcritical mechanical material responses, (i.e. pre-reacted state).
ENIG, in collaboration with the University of Maryland’s Department of Physics, has been selected and awarded by the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory’s (AFRL) Space Vehicles (RV), Kirtland AFB, NM to design a space plasma generator payload for low Earth orbit (LEO) insertion.
ENIG, in collaboration with SRI International (Menlo Park, CA), has been selected and awarded by the U.S. Army Natick Soldier RD&E Center (NSRDED) to develop a modeling methodology with predictive and inferential capabilities, specifically to address the challenges of designing body armor for the warfighter. These challenges include the ability to resist realistic multiple impacts from burst fire even
The Office of the Director, Dr. Thomas Russell, invited ENIG President, Eric N. Enig, to participate in a roundtable discussion at the Army Science Planning and Strategy Meeting on Lethality and Protection being held on December 3-4, 2014 at the Army Research Laboratory (ARL) (Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD).
ENIG, in collaboration with Lockheed Martin Missiles & Fire Control (LMMFC) (Dallas, TX) (NYSE:LMT), has been selected by DARPA’s Tactical Technology Office (TTO) and awarded by the U.S. Army Research Laboratory (Aberdeen, MD) to develop a Hybrid Electromagnetic Gun (HyGUN) technology, which will provide advanced warhead designs with a means of delivering such designs using an accelerating system base upon electromagnetic energy.
