Contract: N00014-12-M-0380
Award Amount: $79,973.00


Agiltron, in partnership with Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), will build and test the Infrared Robotic Imaging System (IRIS), a stereoscopic vision system to provide 3-D location and mapping capability for the navigation of firefighting robotic systems. IRIS is based on Agiltron"s uncooled photomechanical thermal imaging technology that employs the long wavelength infrared (LWIR) and terahertz (THz) wavebands for superior visibility through all types of smoke. The low size, weight, and power (SWAP) of the IRIS system is ideal for installation on mobile robots.
