Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N141-061
Budget: 03/09/16 - 09/11/17

Launch and recovery (L&R) of manned and unmanned systems from ships is very challenging. As Sea State increases, the reliability of most existing L&R systems such as conventional cranes and davits will deteriorates. ATR Corporation developed an innovative L&R system conceptual design during the SBIR Phase I. The L&R system has been analyzed to b...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N151-061
Budget: 07/06/15 - 05/06/16
PI: Tom Zhao

An innovative system called In-Water Container Lifting System (IWCLS) is proposed for lifting ISO shipping containers floating in the open ocean to the decks of Advanced Force Sea-Basings and other vessels of opportunity. It fills a gap in enabling technology for lift-on/lift-off heavy container transfer in high sea conditions up to sea state 4....

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N112-137
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15
PI: Tom Zhao

The overall goal of this Phase II project is to develop a motion compensating platform (MCP) technology for the 32MJ Electromagnetic (EM) railgun aboard the Joint High Speed Vessel (JHSV). Ship motion for the catamaran is significantly different from a monohull such as the DDG 51. Both its peak linear and peak angular accelerations will be highe...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N132-120
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15
PI: Tom Zhao

ATR proposes further development of a Robotic Mission Module Handling System (RMMHS) in the SBIR Phase II to provide a highly adaptable and mobile handling device that is common to both LCS seaframes. The RMMHS consists of a team of robots which work together to handle Mission Modules (MMs). This modular approach takes advantage of the structura...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N141-058
Budget: 05/05/14 - 03/05/15

An innovative system for deploying and retrieving towed bodies from a small surface platform is proposed which builds on previous work in the field. The Deploy and Retrieval System (DRS) employs a semi-active approach to accommodate high sea state conditions. Active sensing of relative motion is coupled with passive, compliant mechanisms to ensu...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N141-061
Budget: 05/05/14 - 03/05/15

Launch and recovery (L&R) of manned and unmanned systems from ships is very challenging. The relative motion between the ship and the vessel being recovered is the primary source of the difficulty. It is often difficult and time consuming to match the motion of the capture device with the vessel being recovered. As sea state increases, the relia...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N132-120
Budget: 12/03/13 - 06/03/14
PI: Tom Zhao

ATR proposes development of a Robotic Mission Module Handling System (RMMHS) to provide a highly adaptable and mobile handling device that is common to both LCS seaframes. The new system will serve as a replacement for the existing handling equipment for Mission Modules (MMs). The conceptual system takes advantage of ATR s recent work in robotic...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF121-098
Budget: 05/03/12 - 02/05/13

ABSTRACT: The Advanced Technology & Research (ATR) response to SBIR solicitation AF121-098 is discussed; the title is: "Guided Munition Delivery Accuracy Methodology for Weaponeering Against Moving Targets (GuMDAM-AMT) . The solicitation addresses the extension of JMEMS weaponeering methodology to the problem of Air-to-Ground (ATG) weapons goi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: EI-2012
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project, Robot-Assisted Patient Transfer and Rehabilitation Device, is to develop a device that provides institutional and home patients of limited mobility with a means to accomplish several important tasks for daily living. Several promising concepts that exploit robotics technology have b...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N112-137
Budget: 10/31/11 - 05/01/12
PI: Tom Zhao

ATR has proposed an interface system concept, Compensated Ramp Interface System (CRIS), comprised of a landing platform and a transfer platform. The landing platform provides continuous support to the ramp, and the transfer platform provides a transition interface for a vehicle to cross from the landing platform onto the floating platform deck. ...
