Research Institution
The Design Knowledge Company provides an innovative solution for assessing and fusing real-time inputs from existing sensors and building activity in order to intelligently provision energy towards facility functions.Our proposed OPENER technical approach includes new innovative development along with leveraging existing technology from our related AFCEC and AFRL programs. These programs include reusable solutions for monitoring and managing industrial controls systems, first responder support tools, and evacuation/disaster situational awareness.OPENER will leverage traditional building sensor data, entrance systems, computing and networking systems, and other assets to determine occupancy locations and levels.OPENER will not require new expensive RF or IR sensor to actively detect occupants and other assets. Phase I will deliver a test setup version of the software that will enable feasibility demonstration and technical assessment for Phase II transition.
