Title: Wide Field of View Electronically Stearable Imaging Sensors
Agency / Branch: DOD / DARPA
Contract: W31P4Q-05-C-R180
Award Amount: $98,973.00
 

Abstract:

The proposed project will develop the revolutionary solid-state gimbal system, using three proprietary technologies (ultrasonic motor, piezoelectronics and advanced modeling software) to enable it to be small, lightweight, low power, and with almost no moving parts. The system will still maintain high performance and will provide precision controlled high angular rate motion over a wide acceptance angle. The gimbal system concept will be lightweight, uncooled, and mechanically robust with 60 degrees of rotational motion. The system will provide a significant technological advance for infrared and visible imaging, on-missile seekers, search and tracking devices, and surveillance equipment.
