Mono-spectral Vision System for Occupancy Detection and Description

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$150,000.00
Agency:
DHS
Principal Investigator:
Jason M. Douglas, President
Abstract:
Latitude Engineering proposes to develop a mono-spectral vision system that will detect the occupancy state of the Advanced Spectroscopic Portal and provide information about the occupying object, such as position within portal, speed of travel, height, length, and other data relating to the shape,… More

Award Amount:
$225,000.00
Agency:
DOE
Principal Investigator:
Jason Douglas, Dr. – (520) 792-2006
Abstract:
There is a clear requirement for gathering greater quantity and quality of atmospheric data in the Arctic regions. The harsh nature of the environment combined with remote location creates the need for technological solutions. Current efforts have successfully used small unmanned aerial systems… More

Low Magnetic Signature Expendable Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) for Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW)

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2014 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$80,000.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator:
Jason Douglas, President – (520) 792-2006
Abstract:
Using a small, cost-effective, expendable Tier I UAV specifically engineered for magnetic anomaly detection will be an effective way to augment the P8-A HAASW capabilities. Tier I UAVs offer many advantages over larger Tier II UAVs for this mission. The main ones being their lower costs and… More
