SoundFit

The socket interface of a prosthetic system can be regarded as a highly complex mechanical joint, acting as a means for transferring forces between the prosthesis and the patient’s skeletal system through soft tissue. Read More...

SPARO

The central insight in the development of the Sensorized Prosthetic Alignment ReadOut (SPARO) system is that prosthetic performance depends critically on alignment; that is, the alignment of prosthetic components governs how loads are transferred to and from the residual limb, which directly affects how the user is supported and able to interact with the external world.

OilEye

FTL personnel have a long history of fluid monitoring both for DoD and industrial clients, with expertise in flow system design, fluid-dynamic analysis, optical access, and data acquisition. Read More...

SonoLoop

Applying emerging speaker materials, audio chipsets, and room-correction algorithms to ensure repeatability in audiology tests, FTL's Sonoloop is a powerful new enabling technology for speaker response correction using Digital Signal Processing (DSP), head tracking, and a novel, portable speaker design. Read More...

HHB-1

Working with long-time collaborator Parker-Hannifin Velcon Fuel Filtration Division, FTL is researching a two-part fuel purification solution that both separates offloaded fuels and oils during maintenance operations, and further purifies the offloaded fuel to an acceptable level for use in ground support equipment servicing the flight line. Read More...

VAME

VAME (Volumetric Additive Manufacturing Metadata Engine) is a software tool to bring AM manufacturing intentions and defect prediction into the design process. Read More...

ElectroSeptic

FTL has developed a forward-deployable wastewater solution for the Air Force that reduces energy usage and footprint. Read More...

Fiber Sensor

FTL's Fiber Sensor is a field capable, free water detection instrument to be used initially in commercial and military aviation refueling environments. Read More...

WHAM

WHAM (Weighted Heuristic Analyzer Monitor) is a lightweight, cross-platform expert system for assessment of candidate water sources based on public regulations. Read More...

Playsurface

Playsurface is a large-format touch table for entertainment as well as classroom math and science education. Read More...

Bubblesquid

The US Navy currently has a capability in gap pressure mine sweeping, and Bubblesquid was developed to solve this important problem. Read More...

Telemachus

Onboard diagnosis of aircraft carrier auxiliary equipment by shipyard Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) has been pivotal in correction of mission-critical deficiencies. Read More...

SWAV

The US Navy has access to volumes of meteorological, buoy, and predictive data about sea-state conditions across the world, and this data can be used to create physically realistic wave simulations on shorelines. Read More...

M1 Ingested Dust Sensor

The AGT 1500 engine developed by Honeywell for the M1 Ground Combat Vehicle is believed to suffer premature performance degradation due to ingestion of dust, sand, and FOD (Foreign Object Debris). Read More...

Autogrape

Built into an 18-inch instrumented spool piece with 2, 4, 6, or 8-inch pipe diameter, the AutoGrape integrates into the data backbone of CVN-68 (Nimitz) and CVN-78 class aircraft carriers and provides instantaneous fuel quality information to maintenance personnel throughout the ship. Read More...
