Award List:

Passive Multispectral Ranging Imager for Visual Odometry

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Huck Wach, Director of Vision Systems
Award Amount: $69,998.00
Abstract:
Accurate Position Location Information (PLI) enables deployment and coordination of ground-based assets, e.g. soldiers and ground vehicles, and is required for safe and effective completion of diverse missions. PLI from computer machine vision, e.g. visual navigation, has the potential to replace… More

Compact high performance 360 degree foveated imaging systems

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / DARPA
Principal Investigator: Kenny Kubala, CTO
Award Amount: $98,973.00
Abstract:
There is a strong need for improved panoramic imaging and situational awareness for many military and commercial systems.
