It goes where a soldier can't

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency will continue working with RemoteReality of Westborough, Mass., to develop an imaging system designed to help soldiers and law enforcement officers in risky situations such as hostage negotiations.

RemoteReality's OneShot 360 sensors, developed five years ago at Columbia University in New York, can run on small robotic vehicles.

Each sensor is roughly the size of a D-cell battery and can send real-time 360-degree views to PCs via wireless connections. The sensors work with Linux and Microsoft Windows 98, Windows NT Workstation 4.0 and Windows 2000.

The company received a $750,000 contract that is a follow-on agreement to an initial $100,000 pact awarded in April of last year, said George Lukes, program manager in the DARPA Information System Office.

The Army Aviation and Missile Command at Redstone Arsenal, Ala., awarded the contract last week under the Small-Business Innovative Research Program.
