Abstract:

This SBIR project is to develop a novel Hemispherical and Dynamic Camera(HDC) with ultra-wide field of view and low geometric distortion. The novel technology we proposed would lead to ultra-compact, low-power, light weight, and high resolution hemispherical camera for EVAs. We successfully completed the Phase 1 project with a novel optical design, functional prototypes, extensive experimental results and commercialization potential. All Phase 1 objectives are met and exceeded.Phase 2 program will afford us to design and build a fully functional miniature EVA camera systems, and perform extensive tests for NASA's EMU and EVA applications. Capitalizing upon the breakthrough we have made thus far, we propose the following Phase 2 technical objectives:Objective 1: Design and build a fully functional prototype of the EMU camera system;Objective 2: Carry out extensive validation experiments and improve the EMU camera prototype;Objective 3: Design and build a prototype of EVA Smart PTZ camera;Objective 4: Carry out extensive validation experiments and improve EVA Smart PTZ prototype;Objective 5: Work closely with COTR to facilitate NASA applications and broad adoption of the Neo360 optics and Smart PTZ technologies developed under this SBIR;Objective 6: Pursue commercialization of the developed Neo360 and Smart PTZ technology.
