Concurrent Technologies Corporation to Showcase Technology Innovations at AUSA 2012 Annual Meeting & Exposition

JOHNSTOWN, Pa., Oct. 16, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Concurrent Technologies Corporation (CTC) will showcase technical innovations that solve real-world challenges at the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) 2012 Annual Meeting & Exposition at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C., from October 22–24, 2012. CTC will exhibit in space number 2161.

AUSA is one of the largest land warfare forums in the world with over 37,000 attendees from government and industry. At AUSA, CTC joins more than 550 major industry leaders, businesses, and professional organizations that are involved in research, development, and production of weapons and equipment for the Army and from the nation's defense industrial base.

"AUSA is one of the largest and most beneficial tradeshows that CTC attends," said Mr. Kim C. Leach, Executive Director and Department of Defense Sector Lead for CTC. "It provides a significant return on investment for CTC, allowing our staff to interact and network with a large number of clients, industry partners, and Congressional points of contact all in one location. CTC is a technology transition company, and the technologies that we showcase at AUSA help solve a number of the Army's challenges, including supporting the nation's warfighters."

CTC will highlight a number of innovations at AUSA that help solve the Army's science and technology challenges in the areas of sustainability and survivability of vehicles and personnel.

  • The Magnesium Powered Water Purification System (MPWPS). MPWPS is an alternative energy powered water purification system. CTC's MPWPS provides the ability to meet objective military goals for dismounted, forward deployed soldiers by eliminating the need for water, fuel resupply, and extra equipment for the duration of a 10 day mission—for 40 soldiers. This system can significantly increase self-sufficiency, reduce supply demands, and reduce waste.
  • The Vehicle Blast Data Recorder (VBDR). The VBDR captures blast/crash data, providing the Army with the information to design and test future ground vehicle systems to best support the safety of the warfighter while increasing readiness and the ability to successfully complete the mission.
  • The Occupant Protection Seat. This seat focuses on warfighter safety during underbelly blast events, which subject vehicles, and the soldiers inside, to extreme vertical accelerations followed by a return ground impact. CTC's new design utilizes a robust and proven energy attenuation system that provides equal protection during both the initial blast event and vehicle slam down. This seat will absorb more energy, substantially reducing the risk of injury during blast events.
