"We are pleased to be a part of CMA Fest and look forward to welcoming music fans to our hometown," said Cracker Barrel Old Country Store Senior Vice President of Marketing Don Hoffman. "Cracker Barrel is a highly experiential brand, and we represent more than a meal or shopping occasion. Our brand celebrates a lifestyle centered on relaxing and connecting with the people you care about. We think music and entertainment are great marketing platforms for our brand and represent a terrific way to connect with our broad and varied guest base." Throughout the festival grounds, Cracker Barrel will encourage festival goers to rock for a good cause. The "Rock-A-Thon" encourages attendees to take a break on Cracker Barrel's iconic rockers while benefitting the CMA Foundation, a national nonprofit that supports quality, sustainable music education initiatives across the country. Beginning Thursday through Saturday evening, Cracker Barrel will bring a little piece of home to downtown Nashville by displaying 644 rocking chairs, a symbol of its nationwide store count. If festival goers collectively rock at least 150,000 times in the rockers, Cracker Barrel will donate $15,000 to the CMA Foundation. Fans can follow along online and on smartphones to track the progress at www.CBRockathon.com. To help CMA Fest fans enjoy a little piece of home, Cracker Barrel is partnering with Lyft, the San-Francisco-based ride-sharing company, who will provide free rides from the festival grounds to two nearby Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® locations. Riders might just get an unexpected delight, too. Festival goers are encouraged to find the Cracker Barrel and Lyft tent at Ascend Park to learn more and to interact with nearby Cracker Barrel murals and a life-size logo for fun, shareable moments on social media. "Adding the free Ascend nightly programming to the CMA Music Fest lineup this year is intended to serve those who are looking for music beyond the stadium performances," said CMA Chief Executive Officer Sarah Trahern. "We're thrilled to partner with Cracker Barrel and this extensive variety of artists to offer the non-four-day ticket holders more evening options." Fans can follow along on social media by using the hashtag #CBMusic as well as tune in to watch daily recap videos on Cracker Barrel's YouTube page.

The Hellfire air-to-ground missile is a combat-proven system that can be launched from multiple platforms with precision strike lethality. The benefits of this project are to increase the effectiveness and utility of the Hellfire missile by increasing the range which is achieved through the reduction of the fly-away aerodynamic drag of the missile after launch. This reduction in drag is achieved by the conversion of the current shotgun connecter with a new low profile connector and adapter. The technical objective of this Phase I SBIR study is to select a design alternative to the existing Hellfire shotgun connector that will mate to any unmodified launch and will to maintain the existing shotgun missile to launcher mechanical and electrical interfaces while also mating to the Hellfire Guidance Section Housing. The existing shotgun connector on the Guidance Section Housing is a significant drag feature of the Hellfire missile. By selecting and incorporating a new low profile connector the Guidance Section Housing can be modified to reduce its profile that results in a fly-away configuration that has decreased aerodynamic drag. The adapter will be securely retained by launcher after the missile has been launched.

The government has identified the need for scientific measurements of the stimuli produced on a human surrogate for human effects testing of different non-lethal weapon technologies including blunt trauma, monochromatic and broadband light, blast over-pressure thermal energy, electrical current, chemical irritants and electromagnetic radiation. Given this wide variety of stimuli, CMA Technologies opted to team with the world"s leading manufacturer of Anthropomorphic Test Devices (ATD), Humanetics Innovative Solutions, to use a mature human-surrogate with proven sensors, to include those for blunt trauma, thermal measurement and blast-overpressure, as a starting point for the design. CMA Technologies is proposing a disciplined systems engineering approach to thoroughly define measurement requirements and to select commercial-off-the shelf sensors that augment the existing system to meet the rest of the government"s measurement needs. CMA is proposing a modular approach where different sensors can be mounted on the ATD as needed for the measurement scenario. In some instances, a different ATD limb or attachment may be needed to use specific sensors while in other instances a sensor can be mounted on the ATD to obtain the necessary measurement. The data acquisition system will have"plug-and-play"functionality designed to incorporate any sensor with minimal user reconfiguration required.
