Whether delivering a package for FedEx, carrying luggage for the TSA or just lifting in a warehouse, $50 Billion is spent compensating injuries from workers who lift incorrectly. Strong Arm Technologies, Inc. has developed an elegant solution to those expenditures. The Strong Arm Vest takes the forces of a load and disperses them to stronger more stable areas of the lifters torso, in doing so it constrains the user into a proper ergonomic lifting posture. Workers lift safer and with less effort.

Silverside Detectors helps governments reduce the threat of nuclear terrorism. Our lithium thermal neutron detection technology matches the performance of standard He-3 radiation detectors, but at 1/10th the price. This inexpensive radiation sensor is low-cost and efficient enough to be a "connected device" for networks of discreet detectors within and around cities, in transportation pathways, and nuclear material storage sites.

Sidecar Winners
2014 Boston Sidecar Winner

CarKnow produces hardware and software designed to capture and generate vehicle data. The CARduino connects to in-vehicle networks, adds digital sensors, and mirrors a user's car in the Cloud. A high-security API features privacy controls and allows developers to build applications to improve the vehicle use and ownership experience. Developers can build applications using our universal API to improve fuel economy, reduce congestion, and improve the vehicle experience. Smart cars = happy drivers

2017 Israel Silver Winner

We have invented an ingenious patent-pending method for implementing a firewall type functionality into the car network. This is a unique implementation that provides the necessary Intrusion detection and prevention capabilities at the highest level. We call this the "Stamper"
All this without:
-  unnecessary risks/ false positives for the drivers
- long integration time for the customers/OEMs
- additional BOM costs. 
The solution is practical and quick to market
