Award List:

Wide-Field-of-View (WFOV) Multiwaveband Multimode Seeker Technology

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Jonathan Hanks, Lead Engineer – (256) 562-0087
Award Amount: $149,919.00
ABSTRACT: The Air Force is seeking advanced seekers that integrate multiple modes of detection. In particular, this SBIR will pursue development of a Semi-active Laser (SAL) sensor and a passive infrared (IR) sensor into an integrated seeker for precision and agile munitions. The enhanced… More

Absolute Localization in GPS-denied Environment for Autonomous Unmanned Ground and Micro-air Vehicle Systems

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Todd Aycock, Computer Engineer – (256) 562-0087
Award Amount: $497,659.00
Polaris proposes to develop necessary hardware and algorithms for a Sky Polarization and Sun Sensor (SkyPass) in order to replace absolute localization information provided by Global Positioning System (GPS) for when GPS fails in a typical navigation solution. Additionally, this proposal includes an… More

Acquisition, Tracking and Pointing Technologies

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Principal Investigator: Art Lompado, Senor Physicist – (256) 562-0087
Award Amount: $999,528.00
Current acquisition, tracking and pointing (ATP) technologies employ optical image processing and/or inertial measurement unit (IMU) data to mitigate image jitter in critical air and space borne targeting applications. Image processing is typically performed using the Kalman filter or some variant… More
