43 Awards Won

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Stanford Mechnical Engineering

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T4.02
Budget: 06/10/16 - 06/09/17

Optical fibers are inherently tolerant of cosmic radiation and a wide temperature range, immune to electromagnetic noise and thus solar flares, etc. Embedded fiber sensors can be highly resistant to shock and vibration, hence their usage in the oil drilling industry. IFOS will work with Stanford?s Center for Design Research to develop a robotic...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: A2.01
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/09/16

Intelligent Fiber Optic Systems Corporation (IFOS) proposes to develop an effective real-time, in situ damage locating and growth monitoring system of composite structures by optimizing a smart, high-speed fiber Bragg grating (FBG) sensor and piezoelectric actuator placement strategy. A new damage identification technique is proposed from which...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 14-1-H20.01
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

IFOS proposes to design and build fiber-optically sensorized robotic fingers that can sense force and, objects using only tactile feedback, similar to the skin on a human hand. The innovation, employing fiber optic sensors, will b integrate the highest-density EMI-immune optical sensing for robotic hand systems to enable human-like tactile sensi...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Alabama, Huntsville

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 11-2-T4.01
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

This Phase 2 program builds on a successful Phase 1 effort that demonstrated practical engineering methods as well as continuing development paths to build smaller high performance gyro systems suitable for small satellite applications. This program will execute a logical follow-on endeavor by (a) using existing components that satisfy the spec...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: New Mexico Tech

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 12-1-T4.02
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

Future flight vehicles may comprise complex flight surfaces requiring coordinated in-situ sensing and actuation. Inspired by the complexity of the flight surfaces on the wings and tail of a bird, it is argued that increasing the number of interdependent flight surfaces from just a few, as is normal in an airplane, to many, as in the feathers of...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: North Carolina State University

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-1-T1.01
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

Intelligent Fiber Optic Systems Corporation (IFOS) proposes an innovative fiber optic-based, multiplexable, highly ruggedized, integrated sensor system for real-time measurement and monitoring of temperature in an Ablative Thermal Protection System (TPS). Such measurement will allow for an effective estimation of temperature gradient and subseq...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Auburn University

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 09-2-T2.01
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

In Phase 1, Intelligent Fiber Optic Systems (IFOS) successfully demonstrated a Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) based integrated Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) sensor system capable of providing in-situ crack detection, location, damage quantification and validation of structural models. The system offers advanced features to perform non-contact, ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 57 B-2011
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

Our nation has a significant underground cable infrastructure that represents 15% to 20% of installed electric distribution capacity (many millions of feet). A portion of this infrastructure is reaching the end of its design life or reliable service life. Complete replacement of old or failing cable systems is a costly option and, at any rate,...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-1-O3.04
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

Intelligent Fiber Optic Systems Corporation (IFOS) proposes, in this Phase 1 SBIR project, to demonstrate the feasibility of innovations based on an ultra-light-weight, ultra-high-speed, multi-channel, optical fiber sensor system for acoustics emissions (AE) monitoring for detection of damage and cracks in composite overwrapped pressure vessels ...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Washington State University

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-2-T2
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

IFOS and its research institute collaborator, Washington State University (WSU), have demonstrated feasibility of a structural health monitoring (SHM) system for aerospace vehicles such as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) or commercial airliners. In Phase 1, a unique high-speed, high-channel count fiber Bragg grating (FBG) sensor interrogation sy...
