Award List:

Mono-spectral Vision System for Occupancy Detection and Description

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DHS
Principal Investigator: Jason M. Douglas, President
Award Amount: $150,000.00
Abstract:
Latitude Engineering proposes to develop a mono-spectral vision system that will detect the occupancy state of the Advanced Spectroscopic Portal and provide information about the occupying object, such as position within portal, speed of travel, height, length, and other data relating to the shape,… More

Autonomous Guidance for small UAV Safe Flight Operations in the National Airspace System (NAS)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Jason Douglas, President
Award Amount: $70,000.00
Abstract:
Safe flight by Unmanned Aerial Vehicles in unrestricted airspace, including the National Airspace, will only be possible with effective and reliable Sense and Avoid technologies and techniques.

Expendable Guided Dropsonde

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Jason Douglas, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
Given the constraints associated with current airborne host platforms, a technological solution is needed for efficiently obtaining meteorological data at targeted locations and altitudes. A combination of using manned and unmanned aircraft with guided dropsondes is a promising and achievable path… More

In-situ Airborne Sampler for Advanced Guided Dropsonde

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Jason M. Douglas, President
Award Amount: $125,000.00
Abstract:
The proposed innovation is a low-cost, retrievable and reusable, autonomously guided dropsonde capable of in-situ atmospheric measurements. The proposed effort will focus on the engineering work involved with the retrieval of volcanic ash plume samples. This work will build upon a previous NASA… More
