5 Awards Won

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-071
Budget: 04/18/06 - 07/18/07

We propose a bottoms-up solution to Tactical Information Interoperability Management (TIIM) comprising a hybrid of emerging systems from the commercial domain plus a TIIM layer for management and routing. The emerging systems are tailored to small, disadvantaged users and hold the promise for easy adaptation to swarms of robotic assets. One is...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Washington

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF04-T011
Budget: 09/01/05 - 01/03/08

This proposal is based on Phase I work to greatly improve coordinated visual tracking of moving targets by multiple autonomous air vehicles. The overall program objective is to demonstrate, in flight, the ability of a cooperating flock of UAVs to autonomously track an evading target, without operator interaction for 30 minutes.

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Washington

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-T011
Budget: 08/02/05 - 05/02/06

The goal of the proposed work is to construct a mathematically rigorous framework for evaluation and refinement of feedback control of UAVs in the presence of intermittent, dynamic, asynchronous communication. The feedback control includes a)application-layer cooperative processes (i.e., exercising team autonomy to accomplish a mission); and b)...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Washington

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF04-T011
Budget: 09/01/04 - 06/01/05

The goal of the proposed work is to rapidly evaluate, and demonstrate in flight, algorithms for cooperative tracking of moving targets using multiple UAVs. The building block algorithms have been maturing through sponsorship elsewhere, and the timing is crucial to now pull them together for demonstration and commercialization. Phase I will inv...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N03-138
Budget: 05/22/03 - 02/21/04

Magnetic sensors aboard UAVs are an area of expertise for The Insitu Group. Insitu performed extensive research with Australian Macquarie University, and the Cooperative Research Centre for Australian Mineral Exploration regarding the placement of magnetic sensors onboard Insitu's Aerosonde. Moreover, Insitu collected extensive data to better ...
