Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 8.1
Budget: 08/04/16 - 12/31/16

for clearing out accumulations of small timber and ground vegetation. However, generations of controversial forest land management practices coupled with global warming trends have yielded wildfires that burn hotter and longer. This beyond ordinary level of devastation can have long lasting effects on the health of soil and watershed resources. ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N141-014
Budget: 05/20/14 - 11/20/14

Using a small, cost-effective, expendable Tier I UAV specifically engineered for magnetic anomaly detection will be an effective way to augment the P8-A HAASW capabilities. Tier I UAVs offer many advantages over larger Tier II UAVs for this mission. The main ones being their lower costs and expendability. The primary challenges with using a smal...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 12-2-S3.05
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

The proposed innovation is a low-cost, retrievable and reusable, autonomously guided dropsonde capable of deploying from a host aircraft and performing in-situ atmospheric measurements. We have decided to name this platform the NavSonde?an autonomously navigable sonde-glider. The proposed effort focuses on the engineering work involved with the...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 17G-2014
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

There is a clear requirement for gathering greater quantity and quality of atmospheric data in the Arctic regions. The harsh nature of the environment combined with remote location creates the need for technological solutions. Current efforts have successfully used small unmanned aerial systems (UAS); however, a large cost in both time and mon...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 12-1-S3.05
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

The proposed innovation is a low-cost, retrievable and reusable, autonomously guided dropsonde capable of in-situ atmospheric measurements. The proposed effort will focus on the engineering work involved with the retrieval of volcanic ash plume samples. This work will build upon a previous NASA SBIR Phase I project Latitude Engineering complet...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-1-S3.09
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

Given the constraints associated with current airborne host platforms, a technological solution is needed for efficiently obtaining meteorological data at targeted locations and altitudes. A combination of using manned and unmanned aircraft with guided dropsondes is a promising and achievable path forward for meeting this need. Guided dropsond...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N08-079
Budget: 09/28/09 - 11/27/10

Safe flight by Unmanned Aerial Vehicles in unrestricted airspace, including the National Airspace, will only be possible with effective and reliable Sense and Avoid technologies and techniques. Several projects, including four Office of Naval Research STTR''s, are underway to develop sensors capable of addressing the first aspect. Latitude Engin...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Homeland Security
Topic: 2007
Budget: 01/01/07 - 12/31/07

Latitude Engineering proposes to develop a mono-spectral vision system that will detect the occupancy state of the Advanced Spectroscopic Portal and provide information about the occupying object, such as position within portal, speed of travel, height, length, and other data relating to the shape, position, and speed of the object. The proposed...
