PSI Awarded Research Programs from NASA
Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) has been awarded research programs from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). The programs include:
Electrical Power from Thermal Energy Scavenging in High Temperature Environments. PSI and our university partner are developing a novel approach to scavenging heat from high intensity thermal environments encountered during space missions and converting this thermal power into electrical power at high efficiency.
Switchable Infrared Filter Enabled by Phase Change Materials
Physical Sciences Inc., (PSI), has been awarded a contract from The U.S. Naval Air Warfare Center to develop Switchable Metamaterial Infra-Red Filters (SMIRFs) based on novel phase change materials incorporated into dielectric metamaterials.
Conformal Coating of Fabric Process Scale-up
Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) has been awarded a contract from the U.S. Air Force, Wright-Patterson, to mature and transition the PSI fabric coating technology for production of ceramic composite components for aerospace and other applications.
Measurement of Retinal Nerves and Blood Vessels as Markers for Type I Diabetes
Under a program from the National Institutes of Health, Physical Sciences Inc (PSI) is developing a new non-invasive imaging techniques able to accurately quantify biomarkers for early detection, diagnosis, and quantification of complications in type 1 diabetes (T1D) such as diabetic retinopathy (DR).
Physical Sciences Leases 33,000 SF Office at 6 Riverside Drive in Andover, MA
The lease at 6 Riverside Drive represents continued expansion of Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and its Tactical Robotics Division, manufacturer of the InstantEye® line of Small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles. PSI has its corporate headquarters at 20 New England Business Center, also in Andover.
Portable Optogenetics/Two-Photon Imaging Instrument for In Vivo Brain Study
Under a program from the National Institutes of Health, Physical Sciences Inc (PSI) and the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign (UIUC) are developing an affordable optogenetics/ two-photon (2P) imaging instrument that will enable simultaneous manipulation and recording of neuronal activity.
Compact LWIR LIDAR for Aircraft Survivability
Under a program from the U.S. Army, Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and Q-Peak Inc. are developing a compact, LWIR Lidar based on a state-of-the art LWIR laser transmitter to supplement aircraft survivability equipment.
PSI’s Ultracompact laser ceilometer for boundary layer and cloud height retrievals
Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) has been awarded a research contract from the Department of Energy to demonstrate the feasibility of a highly compact, automated, low power ceilometer to make retrievals of cloud base and boundary layer heights from remote unattended sites. The ceilometer is based on a fiber laser lidar design and packaged using state-of-the-art techniques for environmental stability.
PSI Receives 2016 Tibbetts Award
Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) was recently presented with a 2016 Tibbetts Award from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) by Maria Contreras-Sweet, SBA Administrator and Mark Walsh, SBA Associate Administrator at a ceremony on the White House grounds in Washington, DC on January 10, 2017.
Hand-held minimally invasive optical probe for three-dimensional visualization of intraocular anatomy and morphology
Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) has been awarded a research program from the US Army Medical Research to develop a novel stereo-endoscopy approach that can be used for intraocular surgical guidance.
