ISR News Story

Gupta, Davis awarded MIPS contracts

ISR faculty are associated with two new Maryland Industrial Partnerships (MIPS) contract awards. The MIPS program provides matching funding for university-based research projects that help companies develop new products. MIPS projects must deal with innovative technological or scientific concepts and have direct commercial applications.

Associate Professor S.K. Gupta (ME/ISR) is working with Automated Precision, Inc., of Rockville, Md., developing mathematical models, algorithms, and prototype software to facilitate the inspection of automobile and aerospace parts. The new system could enable 100 percent inspection, as well as reducing both its time and cost.

ISR-affiliated professor Christopher Davis (ECE) is working with Techno-Sciences, Inc., of Lanham, Md., to develop a sensor package for weapons performance monitoring, target location, and automatic counter-fire. The system could be able to identify the characteristic signature of a munition, and with multiple acoustic sensors and time interval management, triangulation of the origin of the munition could be carried out in real-time.
