Press Releases

Cybernet Systems Corporation has been awarded a Phase I SBIR contract by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration titled "Feedback Sensors for Closed Loop Additive In-Space Manufacturing." This six month effort for NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center is to address their nee for an in-situ monitoring and development of in-process quality control for in-space manufacturing applications. 

Cybernet's proposed approach is an integrated precision scanning of the additive manufactured (AM) parts and feedback of that data back into AM layer by layer process control.  The goal is to augment Space Manufacturing AM process controls with verifiable feedback enabling improved process stability and part quality to significantly reduce the risk associated with complex AM parts, especially those with critical hidden internal geometries or other features not readily measured with non-destructive tests/measurements.

Cybernet is transitioning its Tracker technology at Tinker AFB. The Tracker enhances non-destructive surface inspections and deliverables by providing real-time tracking, recording, and display of inspection progress. This effort will integrate the Tracker with UT inspection equipment and harden the Tracker for rapid setup and execution to provide mobile C-Scan generation.

Cybernet is transitioning its Smart Data Cleanser (SDC) at Robins AFB.  The SDC performs four years of work in one day for multiple aircraft platforms and applies to any dataset with descriptive coding.  The SDC is expected to save $3M annually in unscheduled maintenance and free hundreds of expert hours.  This effort will mature and transition the SDC to the Air Force and ensure its maintainability.

At a time when cybersecurity is one of the hottest topics in business discussions, particularly within government, Cybernet’s Orlando-based Cybersecurity Division announced that it will once again participate in the world’s largest modeling, simulation and training conference, Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC), Nov. 27-Dec. 1 in Orlando, Florida.

“When you consider that estimates project cybercrime damage costs to reach $6 trillion annually by 2021, we know that our products and services will be the difference for our customers, and protecting their assets is what we do best,” said Andrew Maxon, vice president, Cybersecurity and Training Systems. “The challenge that we’re finding is that many of our partners and customers who support government contracts either aren’t familiar with the newest level of cyber compliance because perhaps they don’t have internal cybersecurity experts, or that they just haven’t found the “right time” to make the upgrades. Either way, it’s a very precarious place to be.”

Maxon said their most popular products, Security Manager and Security Advisor, are helping businesses make those adjustments and helping them keep up with the day-to-day management necessary to ensure the most protection from any hacks or malware.

“Cybernet has always been focused on making an impact worldwide in areas of importance: health, productivity and security,” Maxon said. “The fact that the world’s internet users are already numbered at 3.8 billion in 2017, and that some projections say that 40% of manufacturing security professionals do not have a formal security strategy, the focus on security and providing useful, reliable and affordable cybersecurity protection is more important than ever.”

Cybernet is creating a prototype autonomous ATLAS-II forklift by integrating their existing Automated Material Handling Technology (AMHT) appliqué kit into an ATLAS-II forklift. We developed the AMHT technology in coordination with the U.S. Army and commercial forklift vendors to automate the functions of material handling equipment, such as forklifts, container handlers, and cargo movers. It has been successfully demonstrated on commercial warehouse style forklifts, tactical forklifts, rough terrain container handlers, and small transport vehicles.

This project is a National Advanced Mobility Consortium (NAMC) effort. The prototype autonomous ATLAS-II forklift will be tested through an incremental approach that includes verification of core behaviors inside our existing autonomous vehicle simulator, functional testing of base autonomous and semi-autonomous capabilities at Cybernet’s facilities, and full system testing demonstrating the ability to perform the required forklift operations in a relevant environment.

The system will support both semi-autonomous and autonomous operations. In semi-autonomous mode, an operator will be able to control the forklift with a remote control, with the autonomous forklift continuing to provide behavior support such as obstacle avoidance, pallet engagement, etc. In full autonomous mode, the forklift will perform all functions without human input. However, an operator will provide the forklift with missions to perform and can cease operation through wireless commands to the forklift.

Cybernet Systems Corporation has been awarded a subcontract under the Ordnance Technology Base Agreement for the DoD Ordnance Technology Consortium (DOTC) to create a partially automated process to dismantle cluster bombs that is safer and less costly than current manual processes. This includes removing the fuze, booster, linear shaped charge and bomblets from the main Cluster Bomb Unit (CBU). 

Along with the removal and bundling of the individual parts is the removal of the bomblet fins to allow for easier cryo/kiln processing. The system picks up the rounds from a loading area, brings them into the disassembly area, and the various components removed are placed on the transport conveyors for removal and disposal, storage, or other demilitarization.

This effort provides a number of direct benefits to the Army and other services. First, the automation can be used to decrease the cost associated with disassembly of CBU stockpiles. Second, the automation technologies can be used to increase safety to those working in and around the disassembly of the CBU stockpile.

Cybernet Systems Corporation has been awarded a Phase I SBIR contract by the Department of the Navy titled "Sensory System to Transition Pilots From Aided to Unaided Vision During Flight to Mitigate Spatial Discordance." This six month effort for the Naval Air Systems Command is to address their need for a mitigation of the disorientation that occurs when a pilot transitions from aided to unaided vision.  Primarily the pilot needs a robust indication of aircraft attitude during the post-transition period, but other information, such as proximity to other aircraft or the ground may be candidates as well. 

Cybernet will explore a straightforward audio/visual multimodal approach to conveying situation awareness of the current attitude of the aircraft to the pilot.  This includes a flexible display based on addressable LEDs that is attached to the internal scaffolding of the cockpit, thus providing a virtual.  It also includes an audio cue that leverages differentiation between the left and right ear playback of a sound to indicate aircraft roll and an orthogonal change in timbre to convey pitch.  Cybernet will implement this dual-mode peripheral cueing (DMPC) system, which is a proof-of-concept for each of these two cueing modes, test and adjust them individually and then together to determine and maximize effectiveness.  Cybernet will also evaluate and minimize the capacity for these cues to distract or otherwise degrade the performance of the pilot.
