107 Awards Won

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: A3.02
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/09/16

OKSI proposes to design an optical system to support assisted or automated precision approach of fixed or rotary wing aircraft, or other low altitude airspace operations, under diverse weather conditions. The Infrared Beacon System (IRBS) will utilize beacon lighting located near the landing site and an optimized imaging and processing system on...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: H7.01
Budget: 06/09/16 - 06/08/18

OKSI proposes a minimally invasive in-flight diagnostic to measure heat shield recession during flight tests. These measurements can be used to validate models and ultimately optimize heat shield design to reduce weight while maintaining sufficient safety margins. The concept has two components: 1) specially designed heat shield plugs and 2) a r...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Commerce
Topic: 8.2.6
Budget: 05/29/16 - 11/29/16

A Capillary Absorption Spectrometer (CAS) is proposed for in-situ, underwater gas concentration and isotope measurements. The concept utilizes mid-infrared laser absorption spectroscopy within a hollow fiber optic capillary that both confines a gas sample and acts as an optical waveguide. A tunable laser beam propagates through the hollow fiber ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: A2.02
Budget: 05/06/16 - 05/05/18

Existing command and control (C2) paradigms for UAS platforms are extremely limited and cumbersome, requiring at least a single operator per UAS, if not more than one operator for each UAS (as is the case with many scientific and commercial UAS platforms). For example, UAS platforms such as the ScanEagle or the Sierra require at least one operat...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA15-T001
Budget: 04/25/16 - 11/24/16

We propose a novel computational framework for discrimination that incorporates sensor data from observations of the engagement and from kill assessment (KA) that such sensors can provide. The KA information is combined with data from other sensors to improve the discrimination decision and to reduce the probability of correlated shots. Approve...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: George Mason University

Agency: Department of Defense
Topic: MDA15-T001

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N152-111
Budget: 11/02/15 - 09/02/16

OKSI proposes to design an optical system to support automated landing of fixed wing aircraft on carriers. The Carrier Automated Beacon Landing Enhancement (CABLE) system will utilize augmented beacon lighting located on the ship and optimized imaging system on the aircraft. Automated software will extract observed light positions combined with ...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Aerospace Corporation

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF15-AT26
Budget: 09/30/15 - 09/30/16

ABSTRACT: The sensor system requirements for image based navigation that uses passive millimeter wave imaging radiometry will be established based on existing RelNav and AbsNav algorithms that were demonstrated to work in multi-modal imagery. ?Existing flight data will be used to simulate the PMMW imagery for these tests. ?A preliminary design o...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N141-077
Budget: 09/14/15 - 03/14/17

DoD is currently using active sensors (LADAR and RADAR) to support terrain following to avoid enemy RADAR. Digital Elevation Maps are also used but the associated inaccuracies limit the minimum safe operating altitude to greater than 500 ft. DoD applications require 100% passive, day/night obstacle detection and avoidance for the use of UAS oper...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF073-134
Budget: 07/28/15 - 07/27/17

ABSTRACT:A versatile and robust system will be developed for accurate measurements of the concentration and temperature of combustion products (e.g., H2O, CO2, CO, and NO). Such diagnostics can provide crucial information for the development and testing of scramjet engines, turbine engines, and standard combustion engines. The system will also b...
