Award List:

Ground Mobility and Landing Gear for a Bird-Sized Perching Micro Air Vehicle (MAV)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Peter Dilworth, Founder
Award Amount: $98,943.00
Abstract:
Current MAV platforms suffer from lack of a landing gear that enables perching and ground mobility to support Recharging (or Energy Harvesting) and/or Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR). Minimizing the number of actuators, while providing perching and ground mobility, is a very hard… More

Low Noise, High Efficiency Hydraulics for Mobile Robots

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Bhargav Gajjar, President – (321) 276-0380
Award Amount: $98,853.00
Abstract:
Biologically-inspired motions such as flapping, perching, walking, running, swimming, grasping and manipulating, are difficult for the most advanced robots today. The primary limitation comes from actuation technology in terms of stress/strain ratio delivered to the joint by the actuator overcoming… More

Ground Mobility and Landing Gear for a Bird-Sized Perching Micro Air Vehicle (MAV)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Peter Dilworth, Founder – (321) 276-0380
Award Amount: $749,594.00
Abstract:
Phase II effort from Vishwa Robotics shall focus on delivering at least 2 flight qualified Perching Landing Gear units for Micro Aerial Vehicles (MAV) and small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (SUAV). During Phase II, Vishwa Robotics shall perform a comprehensive analysis, optimization, Flight Testing and… More

Prehensor for one atmosphere diving suit

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Research Institution: Massachusetts Institute of Tech
Principal Investigator: Bhargav Gajjar, President – (321) 276-0380
Award Amount: $79,926.00
RI Contact: Karl Iagnemma
Abstract:
Current atmospheric diving suits and remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) have end effectors with simply 1 DOF. This rudimentary manipulation results in excessive time spent working a problem underwater, development of task specific tools that can be operated by the pliers or acceptance that a specific… More
