Budget: 08/20/15 - 05/23/16
PI: W. Monach

ABSTRACT: In order to effectively utilize multiple Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) for missions such as Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR), Strike, etc., it is vital to have Open Architecture (OA) tools that accurately model and simulate the interaction of autonomous, unmanned, and manned air vehicles. Daniel H. Wagner Associat...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Robotic Research LLC

Institution: Jet Propulsion Laboratory

Agency: Army
Topic: A14A-T018
Budget: 09/10/14 - 01/08/15

Robotic Research, LLC and Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) at the California Institute of Technology are teaming their efforts under the Army STTR topic A14A-T018 Intelligent Terrain-Award Navigation and Mobility of Unmanned Ground Vehicles Operating Under Varying Degrees of Autonomy to develop an unmanned terrain-aware navigation and mobility ...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Sheetak Inc.

Institution: Jet Propulsion Laboratory

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 06F-2013
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

A significant portion of the waste heat from engine exhaust can be recovered using thermoelectric generators to achieve up to 10% gain in automotive mileage. There have been several efforts underway on this front but most have focused on demonstrating thermoelectric generators using bulk materials that consume significant amount of raw materials...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Yardney Technical Products, Inc.

Institution: Jet Propulsion Laboratory

Agency: Army
Topic: A12A-T010
Budget: 10/22/12 - 03/20/13

The objective of this Phase 1 effort is to develop an asymmetric supercapacitor (ASC) that provides >10 Wh/kg energy density and a high power density, and maintains this performance down to -55°C. Yardney Technical Products (YTP), a recognized specialty high energy battery manufacturer in Pawcatuck, CT in collaboration with the Jet Propulsion La...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Hypercomp, Inc.

Institution: Jet Propulsion Laboratory

Agency: Army
Topic: A12A-T012
Budget: 09/24/12 - 03/30/13

In this proposal, a team comprising of HyPerComp Inc. and NASA-JPL aims to develop modular parallel adaptive meshing capability for problems involving implicitly captured interfaces such as free surface capture using the level set method. In specific, these models will be demonstrated along with the appropriate software interfaces for the US Arm...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Robotic Research LLC

Institution: Jet Propulsion Laboratory

Agency: Army
Topic: A11A-T033
Budget: 09/01/12 - 08/31/13

Mobility Optimization via Enhanced Robotic Sensing (MOVERS) is being developed by Robotic Research, LLC and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) at the California Institute of Technology. This Phase II STTR will further develop autonomous terrain classification and driving control systems that enable medical robots and mobility assist devices to ...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Creare, Inc.

Institution: Jet Propulsion Laboratory

Agency: Navy
Topic: N12A-T008
Budget: 06/25/12 - 04/26/13

High-sensitivity resonant vibratory microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) sensors are typically vacuum packaged in discreet packages. Wafer-scale vacuum packaging offers size, weight, and cost advantages, and the packages are more shock and vibration tolerant. However, the high internal pressures and leak rates achieved to date through wafer-sca...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Synetics Systems Engineering

Institution: Jet Propulsion Laboratory

Agency: Navy
Topic: N10A-T039
Budget: 12/07/11 - 06/07/13

The program will develop a prototype Autonomous Helicopter Rugged Operations Controller (AHROC) supporting autonomous approach, landing, takeoff, departure and navigation in sloped, rugged terrain in a GPS denied environment. The AHROC system utilizes dual color camera inputs. Passive image processing functions provide: 1) Aircraft localization ...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Robotic Research LLC

Institution: Jet Propulsion Laboratory

Agency: Army
Topic: A11A-T033
Budget: 11/01/11 - 05/31/12

Robotic Research in partnership with Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) proposes to develop the Mobility Optimization via Enhanced Robotic Sensing (MOVERS) system for any two-wheeled, four-wheeled or tracked robotic platform to autonomously perform hazardous terrain detection and classification and adjust its driving control strategy to safely nego...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Giner, Inc.

Institution: Jet Propulsion Laboratory

Agency: Army
Topic: A11A-T012
Budget: 09/28/11 - 03/29/12

The US Army has identified limitations of the DMFC (poor efficiency) and RMFC (complex system, high temperature process) approaches, and is soliciting innovation that will enable high efficiency hydrogen generation from methanol in a simple approach that has minimal thermal signature. It is the objective of this project to address these needs th...
