Barron Associates Awarded NEI Grant to Develop Vision Therapy Games

Barron Associates, Inc. has been awarded an SBIR Phase IIB Competing Renewal 2-year grant (2R44EY021079-05) from the National Eye Institute (NEI) to develop a commercial iCare software system providing effective and motivating vision therapy for children with non-strabismic amblyopia or convergence insufficiency. The iCare product builds on Barron Associates’ expanding portfolio of FDA cleared, evidence-based […]

Barron Associates Receives Grant to Develop Smart Sensors for Cystic Fibrosis Treatments

Barron Associates has received a grant from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute for the development of sensors that objectively monitor the duration and pattern of adherence to CF airway clearance and inhaled medication therapies. This Phase I SBIR research effort will provide accurate assessment of patient adherence to CF treatments as a tool […]

Hybrid Air/Water Vehicle Prototype Testing

Barron was awarded a Navy STTR contract to develop a hybrid vehicle that could operate both in air and underwater. The goal was to use air travel to rapidly reach a location and then dive underwater to engage submerged targets. Barron Associates designed and built AERODIVER, a collapsible heavy-lift quadcopter transport to carry a Remotely […]

Safe and Intelligent Surveying of Complex Environments with UAS Swarms

Barron Associates has been selected for award of an Air Force Phase I SBIR contract to develop the micro-Swarm Environmental Sensing (µSENS) technology to safely and efficiently gather high spatiotemporal resolution wind data to initialize diagnostic wind models. µSENS includes UAV platforms instrumented with meteorological sensors and swarm / path planning software to coordinate behaviors […]

Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Equipped for Air and Sea Locomotion

Barron Associates has been awarded a NAVY Phase I STTR contract to develop a hybrid unmanned vehicle capable of operating both in-air and underwater. The goal of the research is to design an autonomous vehicle that can cover much larger sections of the ocean in less time than a traditional Unmanned Underwater Vehicle. Barron’s vehicle […]

Agile Aerial Sensor System Tailored for In-Situ Cloud Measurements

 Barron Associates was awarded a NASA Phase I SBIR contract to develop a novel atmospheric sensing platform. The sensing apparatus, the WINGSONDE, is a compact, tube-deployed Small Unmanned Aerial System (sUAS) equipped with atmospheric sensors and designed to operate at high altitude for extended operational periods. The WINGSONDE sUAS can be carried and deployed directly […]

NASA SBIR Phase I Contract Awarded- “Runtime Assurance for Flight Test Research Aircraft”

In June, Barron Associates was awarded an SBIR Phase I contract entitled “Runtime Assurance for Flight Test Research Aircraft” from NASA Armstrong Flight Research Center.  This will be a follow-on targeted study related to BAI’s recently completed 3-year Air Force contract on runtime assurance framework development.  The effort will develop more formal approaches to constructing […]

NASA SBIR Phase I Contract Awarded- “Run-Time Assurance for Safe UAS Operations with Reduced Human Oversight”

Barron Associates has been awarded a contract from NASA to increase the safety of  Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), commonly called drones. Current UAS operations in the National Airspace System (NAS) rely heavily on human oversight, with the majority of commercial operations currently authorized by the FAA through the Section 333 exemption process restricted to visual […]

Phase II Automated Deployable Robust Training (ADROIT) System Selected for Award

Landmines represent a significant threat throughout the world. Landmines and unexploded ordnance (UXO) cause severe injury, death, and duress, often denying thousands of people access to their homes and land. Barron Associates is developing the Automated Deployable Robust Training (ADROIT) System, a comprehensive environment to train and deploy vertebrates to detect and mark landmines and […]
