91 Awards Won

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N143-129
Budget: 09/28/15 - 03/28/16

ASC is involved in the Autonomous Vehicle community (air, ground and sea) and development of Future Combat Systems. The 3D Flash LIDAR camera developed under the proposed program will increase the readiness level of the navigation software that can be used in commercial Guidance Navigation and Control (GN&C) for autonomous vehicles. Flash LIDAR ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: A3.02
Budget: 06/17/15 - 12/17/15

ASC has developed non-scanning 3D Flash LIDARTM imagers for UAS situational awareness and autonomous landing. This sensing technology is the most advanced LIDAR technology available for UAV guidance and landing site determination. ASC's array technology has allowed for compact LIDAR cameras that collect full frame 3D point clouds in a single F...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S4.01
Budget: 06/17/15 - 12/17/15

CMOS Fabrication processing improvements have become available that can shrink the unit cell size and increase the sample rates of 3D Flash LIDAR arrays allowing or significant improvement in both range and spatial resolution. ASC is proposing to design and simulate the architecture for a high speed (2 GHz) high resolution 3DFPA, running at nea...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 12-2-S4.01
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

Advanced Scientific Concepts, Inc. (ASC) is a small business that has developed 3D Flash LIDAR systems for space and terrestrial applications. 3D Flash LIDAR is ideal for determining real-time spacecraft trajectory, speed and orientation to the planet's surface, as well as evaluating potential landing sites. ASC's Flash LIDAR has been used fo...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 14-1-S4.01
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

Advanced Scientific Concepts, Inc. (ASC) has developed a number of 3D Flash LIDAR systems. Flash LIDAR sensors are 3D video systems that return range and intensity for each pixel in real time. ASC's Flash LIDAR has been used for autonomous berthing with the International Space Station and is currently under development for the OSIRIS-REx aster...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Virginia Polytechnic Institute

Agency: Navy
Topic: N12A-T021
Budget: 10/24/13 - 03/31/15

The goals of this Phase II project are to develop a prototype vision system and demonstrate its capability of locating boundaries and obstructions, normally 15 feet away, within one second in scenarios containing smoke from a real fire. This vision system

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N101-083
Budget: 07/25/13 - 01/24/15

The objective of this Phase II.5 program is to design, fabricate, test and calibrate a self-contained, 320 x 320 focal plane array, 3D LIDAR Underwater Camera (3D LUC) which will robustly function in an over-water, aircraft environment. The goal is to output three LUCs and components from the program, through the supporting FNC; two LUCs for exi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA12-030
Budget: 07/02/13 - 01/01/14

Defensive missiles are being developed to intercept reentry vehicles and tactical ballistic missiles before their conventional, chemical and nuclear warheads can reach their targets. Both hit-to-kill (HTK) interceptors and fragmentation warheads are being devised. The proposed R&D will develop an ultra-high speed framing camera that will photo...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 12-1-S4.01
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

Advanced Scientific Concepts, Inc. (ASC) is a small business, which has developed a compact, eye-safe 3D Flash LIDARTM Camera (FLC) well suited for real-time spacecraft trajectory, speed, orientation measurements relative to the planet's surfaces and evaluating potential hazards during the critical landing sequence. ASC's Flash LIDAR has been u...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Minnesota

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

Robots and rovers exploring planets need to autonomously navigate to specified locations. Advanced Scientific Concepts, Inc. (ASC) and the University of Minnesota will develop a navigational system that employs an IMU and a 3D FLASH Lidar camera manufactured at ASC. The system will furnish both the position of the rover and an elevation map of...
