The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. An Advanced Extravehicular Activity Robot Assistant

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    To move beyond teleoperated control of robot manipulators for ISS assembly and maintenance applications, robot controllers that support interactive learning will be required. It is not possible for ground personnel to anticipate all scenarios in which robot assistants in space will be involved and pre-program their response. It will also be increasingly incumbent on the robot to ascertain the inte ...

  2. Time-Modulated Ultra-Wideband Multichannel Data System

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The key innovation of this proposal is implementation of a Time Modulated Ultra-wideband (TM-UWB) radio to implement a bi-directional astronaut to spacecraft wireless link. Our innovation will also provide a real-time reading of the position of the astronaut, and with two small conformal antennas on the astronaut, it will provide the astronaut orientation and position in real-time. Within the last ...

  3. N/A

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The key innovation of this proposal is the use of Time Modulated Ultra-Wideband (TM-UWB) technology to develop a low cost radio system that allows both voice communication and tracking positions of fire fighters inside buildings. This radio has several characteristics which make it ideal for tracking multiple individuals without line-of-sight. During Phase I we have performed many tests, incl ...

  4. An Integrated Tool for Resource Scheduling and Health Monitoring

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In this proposal, Intelligent Automation, Incorporated (IAI) proposes an Automated Non-intrusive Health Monitoring tool for simultaneous component or structure degradation monitoring (trend analysis), fault detection, and diagnostics in ground systems. This prognostic technique, or health monitoring (HM) tool, can be combined with IAI's internetworking software to provide remote monitoring capabil ...

  6. Aircraft Wiring Integrity Verification using Pseudo-Random Binary Sequence

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Our approach to aircraft wiring inspection is to inject a special type of low level probe signal into the cable to be tested. The system response to this special input can be used to give the complete transfer function of the cable. Incipient failures in the cable will be detectable as subtle changes in that transfer function, or cross-correlation between probe input signal and response, includi ...

  7. Selective Speaker Interface to Support Smart Space Accessible Computing

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Smart Flow system developed by NIST provides a platform to develop standards that promote the interoperability of devices produced by different manufacturers. The NIST system can acquire and process multiple sensor data such as voice and image in real-time. Many applications such as speaker verification, head trackers, etc. can be implemented under the framework. In Phase 1, we have demonstrat ...

  8. A Novel Wireless System for Structural Integrity Monitoring of Aircraft

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In this Phase 2 project, we expect to develop two useful andinnovative systems for ground based nondestructive evaluation(NDE) of aircraft. First, a portable monitoring prototypeconsisting of wireless MicroElectroMechanical System (MEMS) andPolyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF) sensors, and a telemetry systemwill be developed. Experience with PVDF sensors being tested onan SH-60 helicopter will assist th ...

  9. StoryTiles: Programmable Manipulatives to Improve Language, Sequencing, Theory of Mind, and Play Skills in Children with Autism

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    IAI will develop and field test StoryTiles, a device with programmable manipulatives that foster language, sequencing, theory of mind, and play skills among children with autism. Children will be able to use this device to experiment with storytelling, and in doing so, work with sequencing, creative play, and language structures as they manipulate programmable, tangible objects.

  10. Using Evolving Curves to Track Dynamic Boundaries

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In the phase I effort, IAI successfully demonstrated the feasibility of co-operative swarm based approach to boundary tracking. This approach is relevant to applications such as tracking oil spills using a swarm of robots, tracking enemy troop movement using a swarm of UAV's (Future Combat System (FCS) type scenario), and tracking of static and moving mine fields . In Phase II, we continue our ef ...
