Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $51,107.00

TRACKING SYSTEM APPLICATIONS OF EXPONENTIAL SENSOR ARRAY VISION SYSTEM

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1988 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $494,000.00
Abstract:
Spacecraft terminal rendezvous, station-keeping, docking, and robotics in space require precision maneuvering over distances ranging from hundreds of meters to zero. fast and accurate positional feedback is difficult to achieve over such extreme ranges within weight and power constraintsof current… More

ROBOTIC VEHICLE VIDEO IMAGE TRANSMISSION

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1988 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Dr Carl F R Weiman
Award Amount: $49,424.00

ROBOTIC VEHICLE VIDEO IMAGE TRANSMISSION

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1990 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Dr Carl F R Weiman
Award Amount: $501,852.00
Abstract:
Unmanned vehicles are desirable in hostile environments. guidance is a difficult problem, particularly in rough terrain. vision is essential. autonomous guidance is not presently viable. remote video guidance by an operator is a practical solution. video data rates imply very high carrier… More

TORTUOUS PATH ROBOT TRANSPORT

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1990 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: J. F. Engelberge , Chairman
Award Amount: $46,424.00
Abstract:
The serpentine robotic arm job description prompts proposing an alternative execution that might be preferable in spacecraft assembly, test and maintenance. rather than have a serpentine arm, this proposal suggests a built-up structure to transport the robotic arm to its work site. presume that the… More

LOG-HOUGH TRANSFORM FEATUE DETECTOR
