Award List:

Microsatellite Precision Guidance, Navigation, and Control Concepts

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$99,976.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / MDA
Principal Investigator:
Alex Karolys, President
Abstract:
Measuring systems based on multiple numbers and types of optical sensors connected by a single optic fiber are highly desirable for microsatellites applications because they exhibit significant advantages over traditional systems, such as micro-miniature size, light weight, low power consumption,… More

Hypersonic Sensor Architecture Evaluation, Sensor Testing and Communication Needs

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$99,998.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator:
Alex Karolys, President
Abstract:
Flight test and on-board monitoring programs require multiple and different types of measurements, including pressure, temperature, heat flux, strain and vibration. As many as four to six wires from each sensor carry analog signals and power to and from the analog signal conditioning. For large… More

Hypersonic Sensor Architecture Evaluation, Sensor Testing and Communication Needs

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2005 / SBIR / Phase II
Award Amount:
$748,679.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator:
Alex Karolys, President
Abstract:
Flight test and on-board monitoring systems require multiple and different types of measurements, including pressure, temperature, heat flux, strain, flow position, vibration, and shock. As many as four to six wires from each sensor carry analog signals and power to and from the analog signal… More

Multi-component Aircraft Engine Monitoring

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$79,997.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator:
Alex Karolys, President
Abstract:
Current aircraft engine monitoring systems based on stand-alone instrumentation require point-to-point wiring to transfer information from sensors to signal conditioners and data acquisition electronic boxes. This results in bulky, heavy instruments and cumbersome cabling harnesses and connectors.… More

Fiber Optic Fabry Perot Vector Sensor Arrays

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$99,795.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator:
Alexis Karolys, President
Abstract:
Conventional accelerometers are non-optimal for many submarine sensor applications, especially for hydrophone towed arrays. Limitations include size and weight, need for heavy copper conductors, susceptibility to electromagnetic interference and electrical cross talk, and limited cable drive… More
