Proposal Number: 0911165
Proposal Title: BioSwimmer Biomimetic In Liquid Inspection System
Topic Number: H-SB09.1-007
Phase: Phase I
Topic Title: Autonomous (or alternative) In-Liquid Survey Vehicle
Organization: Boston Engineering Corporation
Address: 300 Bear Hill Rd
Waltham, MA 02451-1096  
Abstract: BioSwimmer is a system level solution including a biomimetic autonomous swimming vehicle that provides efficiency, maneuverability and payload integration capability that is unavailable in other platforms. Phase I includes development of advanced sensing to perform in-liquid inspections with accuracy and reliability. Additionally, the Phase I work provides design and prototyping in support of a Phase II demonstration. The BioSwimmer system is an end-to-end solution that includes sensing, post processing, control, and leverages current similar prototypes as well as the robotics, in-oil inspection, and sensing experience of team members. Commercial applications include the oil-shipping industry and Boston Engineering is aligned with the Coast Guard and several consultants to enable commercialization and feasibility of logistics of the application.
