Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N112-158
Budget: 10/11/11 - 08/10/12

Imperium in collaboration with its partner Bluefin Robotics is pleased to present this proposal for an underwater imaging device to inspect the internal components of underwater mines. The device is based on Imperium s proven ultrasound technology and Bluefin s Hovering Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (HAUV). Imperium s Acoustocam is an ultrasound...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N111-031
Budget: 08/12/11 - 02/12/12

Imperium, and its partner Oceaneering, propose a fast, accurate, reliable, underwater hull inspection system based on Imperium s unique ultrasound camera technology. The proposed device generates images which are striking for its clarity and simplicity. It is based on a patented 2D ultrasound array with 120 rows by 120 columns of individual piez...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N07-118
Budget: 07/14/11 - 07/30/13

This proposed program is meant to develop a reliable method for finding subsurface cracks under fastener heads of the KC-130J. Structurally critical areas like the wing box and rainbow fittings do not currently have a reliable method to detect these cracks before they grow too large and become a danger to the mission. If left unchecked, these cr...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB092-003
Budget: 01/28/10 - 10/08/10

Traumatic brain injury has been designated the signature wound of the Iraq war due to its prevalence. Over 43,000 cases of combat related TBI have been documented from 2003 through 2007. TBI is divided into two categories: primary and secondary. Primary injury in most cases is obvious. Secondary or closed brain injury however may exhibit no ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N07-126
Budget: 12/19/08 - 06/19/10

Based on the success of the Phase I SBIR, Imperium is proposing this Phase II SBIR to build a small, portable handheld device for composite damage inspection in aircraft structures. The device will be light, battery powered, and won t require a specialist for use. The inspector places the handheld probe up to the target in question and the devic...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N07-118
Budget: 12/01/08 - 06/01/10

Based on the success of our Phase I SBIR, Imperium, Inc., with Boeing and Bell Helicopter, is submitting this proposal for the development of a field portable low cost ultrasound camera for the rapid, simple inspection for disbonds in helicopter rotor blades. As composites become more prevalent in programs such as the V22 or H1, the need for ins...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A06-160
Budget: 11/16/07 - 07/26/10

In this project, Imperium Inc. proposes to develop a non-invasive, non-ionization, portable, high-resolution ultrasound imaging device. This C-scan device can be made to investigate undisplaced fractures of the facial bones and extremities and the potential contamination of soft tissue wounds with foreign matter. Injury with pain and tendernes...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N07-126
Budget: 09/13/07 - 03/13/08

Imperium, along with Bell Helicopter and Boeing, are proposing a small, portable ultrasound camera for real time imaging of subsurface defects in composites. This device, based around a unique ultrasound imaging array, can generate C-scans in real time of subsurface defects. This allows for a non-specialized user to find defects immediately. Thi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N07-118
Budget: 09/11/07 - 03/11/08

The available tools to detect skin to core disbonds are both difficult to use and require extensive training. Complex waveforms must often be interpreted. We are proposing a small, portable, low cost ultrasound camera for in-service inspection of honeycomb rotor blades for skin to core disbonds. The basis of our technique is a two dimensional im...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A06-160
Budget: 11/07/06 - 09/06/07

In this project, Imperium Inc., together with Georgetown University Medical Center, propose to build a speckle-free, non-ionizing, high resolution C-scan ultrasound system for detection of small fractures and foreign objects in soft tissue. This ultrasound camera , contrasts to B-mode ultrasonic devices which require extensive training to opera...
