Syncroness designed a camera mast to mount onto the EFV. The mount had three modes of operation (stowed, sea, and ground) and could hold 30 pounds of equipment five feet in the air during all vehicle operations. It had to be strong enough to survive and function after repeated artillery strikes to the vehicle. Our team managed the entire design, performed mechanical analysis, and built the prototype system.
The EFV was experiencing a problem with toxic fumes during medium- to high-fire rate testing. If the problem was not addressed, the vehicle program would have been cancelled. Our engineers performed airflow analysis to uncover the root cause of the toxic fumes problem. They then designed prototype test components to evaluate during live fire and produced the design solution that overcame the problem.[...]
