Award List:

Terminally Guided Robots and Robotic Applications in Confined Spaces

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$99,929.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator:
Brett Bordyn, Principal Investigator
Abstract:
Variation Reduction Solutions, Inc. (VRSI) has created a partnership with Comau Pico to address the Air Force's stated desire to increase the use of robotics in aerospace manufacturing. Standard articulating arm robots are not currently in widespread use due to their inability to hold aerospace… More

Terminally Guided Robots and Robotic Applications in Confined Spaces

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2007 / SBIR / Phase II
Award Amount:
$3,597,730.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator:
Brett Bordyn, Principal Investigator
Abstract:
Northrop Grumman Corporation (NGC) has a contract with Lockheed Martin to design, build, and produce the center fuselage section of the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF F-35). There are three ducts which are the primary components of this section - the aft duct and two forward (inlet) ducts - right and… More

Affordable Accurate Robot Guidance (AARG)

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$100,000.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator:
Brett Bordyn, Technical Director, Aerospace
Abstract:
The field of high-precision manufacturing, especially in the aerospace industry, has traditionally required either manual processes or the use of monolithic Cartesian NC-type machines. There are many justifications for the desire to use articulated arm robots to perform these tasks. While recent… More

2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$100,000.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator:
Brett Bordyn, Principal Investigator
Abstract:
The initial focus of this solicitation is for the establishment of an automated affordable, accurate dimensional control of aircraft OML structures for the military aircraft production line. The Air Force is supporting the expansion of manufacturing capacity via automated metrology systems for… More

Affordable Accurate Robot Guidance (AARG)

Award Year / Program / Phase:

Award Amount:
$4,800,000.00
Agency:
DOD
Principal Investigator:
Brett Bordyn, Principal Investigator – (734) 414-0035
Abstract:
The authors establish a novel metrology system capable of determining the pose of a robotically-mounted End of Arm Tool (EOAT) in Six Degrees of Freedom (6-DOF) to a capability better than True Position (TP) 0.010 in. The metrology system consists of low-cost, modular components in the form of… More
