We have a proven history of providing excellence and innovation in logistics and llife cycle management to our Defense, Intelligence Community, Special Operations and Homeland Security customers.
We provide state of the art CBRNE, EM and Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) support that capitalizes on the skills of highly qualified employees and managers. Our competencies are rooted in years of collective experience directly supporting all levels of CBRNE, EM, and EOD operations in areas that include the following:
–Civil Support Teams and First Responders
–Consequence Management (CM)
–Emergency Response and Recovery
–Exercise Development and Evaluation
–Fire Protection and Installation
–Protection Program (IPP) Support
–Training and Education
–Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD)
Since 2003, MacB has supported the Readiness Directorate of the Air Force Civil Engineer Center (AFCEC), under the Air Force Civil Engineer Support Agency (AFCESA) Civil Engineering Mission Support contract, and the current Global Engineering, Integration, and Technical Support Assistance (GEITA) contract.
Our primary focus has been providing wartime and readiness technical, logistics, training and program management support for Rapid Engineer Deployable heavy construction units; engineer wartime, contingency and readiness equipment; Expeditionary Engineering and Bare Base Operations; Emergency Management (EM); Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD); Full-Spectrum Threat Response; Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and High-Yield Explosives (CBRNE); and Fire and Emergency Services (FES).
General functions performed by our MacB team include the following:
–Aircraft maintenance action documentation via logs/records/forms/electronic means
–General aircraft maintenance
–Hazardous material storage and handling
–Launch and recovery of aircraft
–Maintenance control planning and management
–Technical Directive compliance and modifications
–Tool issue/receipt to/from aircraft maintenance shops
Our team has extensive weapons systems logistics experience that includes the KC-10, F-15, F-16, B-52, CV-22, C-130, EC-130, HC-130, AC-130U, C-141, C-17, C-5, B-1B, B-2, F-22, SR-71, HH-60, MH-53, F-117, U-2, A-10, E-3, A-7K, Global Hawk, Predator and Joint Strike Fighter.
Today’s Department of Defense (DoD) systems often have operational life cycles that span multiple decades. Most of these systems utilize microelectronics, including FPGAs, that have significantly shorter life cycles than the overall systems and become out-of-date or even obsolete while the system is still in production. MacB offers design recovery and retargeting as an alternative to redesign for obsolete programmable logic components in aging U.S. DoD systems.
With a unique capability, we translate a binary program¬ming file of a digital logic device into a human readable, retargetable circuit description. This automated process helps to reduce cost, schedule, and risk by offering a simple path from an obsolete part to a maintainable component in critical systems. MacB focuses these services on the commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) logic-bearing integrated circuit known as the Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) and the case where the design source or tools may not be available.
Our team combines artistic design talent with technical experience to develop highly functional and intuitive learning solutions, a wide variety of interactive multimedia instruction and web- and mobile-based teaching applications. We use a systems approach to training based on the Instructional Systems Development (ISD) model to provide engaging scenarios, immersive feedback and interactive experiences.
MacB has developed SCORM-certified courseware at levels ranging from graduate coursework to basic instruction for military enlistees, and with content delivery ranging from classroom instruction to individually-paced e-learning. Our approach ensures training solutions are focused on reducing training time while increasing retention.
MacB is experienced in providing off-grid power system, high efficiency power conversion, and custom energy storage solutions to our military customers. This includes complex power management, modeling, and specialized system power distribution. Many of these systems have been ruggedized and/or camouflaged to ensure mission success in austere environments.
Many military operations occur in austere locations and rely on wireless secure communications networks. Defense, Intelligence and Special Operations forces rely heavily on batteries in remote locations to power their critical systems. Our research into DC to DC conversion has resulted in patented energy harvesting capabilities that essentially double the efficiency of current autonomous battery recharging products. Power Reaper charges spare batteries by harvesting the energy difference between the temperature of a hydration pack, vehicle engine, MRE heater, etc. and the operating environment. The ability to recharge batteries in the field significantly reduces the number of batteries needed and increases room for mission-essential equipment.
–Power Reaper advances the present state-of-the-art in DC to DC conversion and power management
–Operates with mV range DC input voltages
–Conversion efficiency of 92 percent vs. the industry standard 50 percent
–Controlled by a nano-powered microprocessor
–U.S. Patent 2011/0254514 A1
The Powerpuck is a breakout module for a BA-5590 battery. The unit provides multiple regulated voltage levels, as well as battery pass through to various connector types. Two LEMO style connectors as well as two Tajimi style connectors are available with user settable outputs of regulated 5V, regulated 12V or Battery Voltage. A standard USB jack and terminal block are also included to facilitate connection to commercial equipment. The module also provides graphical LED readouts for current battery voltage and current draw. A Velcro strap is provided to positively attach the unit to its host battery.
–The breakout module plugs directly into the top of the battery.
–The module is secured to the battery via Velcro strap.
–Modular connectors are grouped into pairs of two. The switch directly above the connectors controls the voltage output of the connectors below.
–The terminal block located on the side of the module is controlled by the switch located on the same side.
–Voltage selector switches are recessed to resist inadvertent changes.
–LED bar graphs provide real-time status of battery terminal voltage and
