S2RC teams with Blue Ring Imaging on Phase I & Phase II Navy SBIR.

Updated: Jul 27, 2023

S2RC has partnered with Team Blue Ring Imaging (Prime), Rogue Wolf Advanced Research (Sub), and Tomahawk Robotics (Sub) on the Navy’s Multimodal Interaction Technologies to Support Small Unit Leaders Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR).

Blue Ring Imaging provides a suite of hardware and software tools to enhance the experience of vehicle operators for ROVs, submarines, ships, and drones.

The objective is to enhance Unmanned Systems (UxS) warfighter situational awareness through developing a multimodal interface which simplifies the control of aerial and ground vehicles in expeditionary environments. The multimodal Human Machine Interfaces (HMIs) which will be developed in the Phase II will serve as middleware between Tomahawk Kinesis and Commercial Off the Shelf (COTS) multimodal technologies including voice, gesture, 3D displays, and body pose estimation.

Voice is one of the HMI options being evaluated on this effort and we are studying how it can be combined with other HMI modalities.

It will also be able to understand user behavior in degraded environments which may diminish man-machine trust and cause the warfighter to lose situational awareness, seamlessly transitioning between Primary, Alternative, Contingency, and Emergency (PACE) UxS control.

Intent of the project is to minimize the equipment required to control an UxS and maximize mobility of the end user.

S2RC is providing Human Systems Engineering, User Experience (UX) and User Interface (UI) development, and Field Operations Support for this effort. S2RC aided Blue Ring Imaging with their proposal as part of our teaming agreement and sourced DoD end users to provide letters of support for the project.

Please contact S2RC if you are interested in our services and would like to add us as a team member. S2RC provides a wide range of services and as a team member can support or lead development of proposals.
