Award List:

3-D Modeling from Video

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2002 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / DARPA
Principal Investigator: Robert Clark, President
Award Amount: $98,608.00
Abstract:
"When humans move and observe, they combine information from the eyes and inner ears to form a mental world model using perception of linear and angular motion as well as visual images. We propose that recent advances in projective geometry, positionestimates from inertial and magnetic sensors, and… More

Non-Contact, 3-D Measurement for Aircraft Surfaces

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Robert Clark, President
Award Amount: $99,748.00
Abstract:
A shape capture system for field and industrial capture of surface contours and discontinuous shapes is proposed. The system will provide accuracy of 0.01 inch or better at over 1 million points distributed over a region 100 inches across from three ormore images obtained with a high resolution… More

Sensor Enabled 3D Model Generation

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / DARPA
Principal Investigator: Robert Clark, President
Award Amount: $1,999,412.00
Abstract:
We propose to create a prototype of a shape and structure capture system which can construct accurate, realistic three dimensional models of typical commercial and residential building interiors from video imagery taken with a freely moving handheld camera. A precision inertial motion measurement… More

Structure from Motion

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Michael Lin, Staff Scientist
Award Amount: $99,957.00
Abstract:
We propose to use the principles of projective geometry and image feature extraction, tracking, and matching techniques to construct accurate, detailed three dimensional models from imagery taken with a freely moving airborne or camera. We also propose to develop methods of detecting and segmenting… More

Automated Learning Video Analysis (ALVA)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Colin Taylor, Sr. Staff Scientist
Award Amount: $99,990.00
Abstract:
We propose to develop a system that will automatically track targets based on characteristic velocity differentials between the target and the background. We leverage our existing system for feature detection and tracking and show that it can produce recognizable discrepancies in the kinematics… More

Wing and Bomb Bay Launched (WBBL) Unmanned Air Vehicle (UAV)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Robert Clark, President
Award Amount: $79,933.00
Abstract:
We propose to design an uninhabited aerial vehicle capable of being launched from the bomb bay or wing pylon of a P3 or other aircraft capable of carrying 500 pound stores. It would cruise at 60 to 85 knots with 10 hour endurance and 100 pound payload capacity. The design may be scaled up or down as… More

Structure from Motion

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Michael Lin, Staff Scientist
Award Amount: $749,988.00
Abstract:
We propose to develop a superior 3D surface reconstruction algorithm that operates on monocular aerial video. High quality pose estimates from inertial data will be used to construct dense depth maps of the 3D environment. Each 3D pixel in the reconstruction will be extracted from multiple views in… More

Wing and Bomb Bay Launched (WBBL) Unmanned Air Vehicle (UAV)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Robert Clark, President
Award Amount: $750,996.00
Abstract:
The goal of the Acuity Wing and Bomb Bay Launched UAV Phase II program is demonstration of the feasibility and utility of an air vehicle organic to the P3 through development and flight testing of a prototype aircraft. Minimum objectives are runway takeoff, autonomous flight directed by a ground or… More

VTOL to Transonic Aircraft

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Robert Clark, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $69,989.00
Abstract:
The cyclogyro, an aircraft propulsion concept with the potential for VTOL to the lower bounds of transonic flight, is conceptually simple but structurally and aerodynamically complex. To our knowledge no cyclogyro has ever flown. We propose to demonstrate through simulation and rotor testing that… More

Principal Investigator: Michael Lin, Staff Scientist
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
A shape capture system for field and industrial capture of surface contours and discontinuous shapes is proposed. The system will provide accuracy of 0.01 inch or better at over 1 million points distributed over a region 100 inches across from three or more images obtained with a high resolution… More

Variable Remapping of Airborne Imagery

Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: MIichael Lin, Staff Scientist
Award Amount: $79,966.00
Abstract:
We propose to design and implement algorithms for the remapping of scenes from one or more existing views. The routines to be developed will present realistic virtual views from any desired direction. Realism of the views increases with additional information about the cameras, scene and with the… More
