Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF03-142
Budget: 06/07/04 - 06/07/06

In the Phase I effort, Umachines, Inc. has successfully proved the feasibility of fabricating optically flat micromirrors made of single crystalline silicon (SCS) with the hidden spring underneath the mirror surface to avoid any undesirable diffraction effects. Each mirror pixel is covered with the gold coating to improve the reflectivity of nea...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF03-142
Budget: 07/10/03 - 04/10/04

Currently the development of ladar seekers is often limited by beam directing mechanisms, which are usually operated by costly, bulky and power hungry voice-coil or electro-mechanical actuators. Umachines proposes to demonstrate the innovative architecture of compact scanning mirrors with sub-millisecond response time based on MEMS technology. T...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N98-006
Budget: 09/21/99 - 09/20/01

There exists a large need in the fluid mechanics community for waterproof, conformal micro shear stress sensors. In Phase I, UM successfully fabricated and tested such sensors. The Phase II effort will integrate waterproof pressure, temperature, and shear stress sensors on the same flexible substrate. In addition, in an effort to produce a ge...
