Zweave’s Success Story: The United States Navy
In June 2003, the U.S. Navy awarded a Phase I SBIR Contract to Zweave to research the viability of tools and methods for the use of 3-D anthropometric data in the design and manufacture of apparel. Zweave was awarded this contract over 13 other organizations submitting proposals. Zweave was awarded a Phase II SBIR project to continue research and development of state of the art tools for using 3-D data and sizing information. In 2006 Zweave finalized its Phase II Option and developed the foundation for FitCOMM™. In 2006, Zweave also received a Phase II Plus contract with matching funds from the Army and the SBIR program This Phase II project was the technical foundation of Zweave’s solution now being deployed by the DOD in a second Phase II Plus sponsored by the Army and Defense Logistics Agency.
