About Acuity Technologies
in 1992, Acuity Technologies develops, manufactures, and supports
components and systems for unmanned vehicles, robotics, and automation.
Acuity concentrates on aerodynamics and vehicle design and control
Intelligent Servo System consists of integrated servos and a Network
Servo Controller. The NSC handles the network protocol and servo
status management and provides a single interface for high level
control. Servos may also be used standalone, for small systems.
SRI-500 Scanning Imaging Rangefinder has been developed for 3-D
environment capture for mobile and stationary applications. The
SRI-500 samples at up to 800,000 points and 500 scan lines per
second using eye-safe pulse laser rangefinding.
offered by Acuity include vehicle control system design, aerodynamic
analysis, propulsion system development and structural engineering
and fabrication. As part of its air vehicle development services,
Acuity offers flight test capabilities.
is developing two aerial vehicles with specialized capabilities.
The AT-3 Owl can be launched from a runway or from the wing or
fuselage bay of a manned aricraft. It was initially designed for
use from the P-3 Orion and P-8 Poseidon maritime patrol aircraft.
AT-10 Responder is a vertical takeoff and landing airplane that
transitions to forward flight by rotating a portion of the wing.
Electric motors driving twin propellers are powered with batteries
or by a generator or fuel cells for long duration flight. The
AT-10 presents less rotor strike hazard than helicopters do, and
is smaller and requires less power than helicopters with similar
range, payload, and duration.
is also devloping imaging systems and software for video navigation
and three dimensional shape, terrain, and environment capture.
Acuity's laser pattern projectors and cameras capture over one
million 3-D surface points in a single optical flash, taking microsecond
3-D snapshots of objects in motion.
