Contract: N68335-07-C-0257
Award Amount: $79,995.00
 

Abstract:

The next generation of ultra-small magnetic sensors will be deployed on small UAVs for a variety of military and commercial applications. The algorithms resulting from this SBIR will allow these new sensors to perform near their sensor noise level. While the U.S. Navy will accrue obvious benefits in submarine and buried littoral target detection, the Army will deploy mass swarms of small UAVs against IEDs and buried land mines. The intelligence community could benefit from an improved ability to detect underground facilities and buried weapons of mass destruction. The new noise mitigation system with the new sensors will help transition the environmental and geophysical survey industry to a wide array of small unmanned aircraft. Cheaper UAV alternatives to lengthy surveys with manned aircraft and large scalar sensors will become the norm. Benefits will include lowering costs for mineral exploration, environmental hazards detection, and construction costs, resulting in a larger and more profitable industry.
