We have developed a number of technologies in fields outside of the ones listed on the individual pages. SOme of these technologies are described on this page, together with any articles, conference proceedings, or patents related to them. One example is tracking systems.
We developed a low-cost, light-weight, high-reliablility tracking system for missile guidance. We determined that there were many other potential applications for this tracker. One simple application is to keep a spacecraft (or, by extension, an unmanned aerial or space vehicle) pointed directly at a target. Since the tracker produces a signal that indicates the difference in angle between the line to the source and the centerline of the tracker itself, two such trackers can be used to determine the distance to the beacon (by parallax).
Interestingly, this can also be applied to self-driving vehicles (such as cars or trucks). The tracker can not only ensure that the following vehicle always heads towards the lead vehicle, it can determine the distance between the two and either keep that distance constant or ajdust it for conditions (speed, visibility, etc.) measured by another sensor.
We have two patents in this area. The first is based on the missile tracker; the second, which is a continuation of the first, includes the distance measurement and unmanned vehicle control.
We have added many other areas of interest as well. We have experts in water development and provisioning, and related governance issues; polymer science; nanoelectronics; chemical engineering, especially of combustion and related products; and cobminations of these, such as water purification through distillation while generating electricity from the process.
