Lockheed Licenses B-Temia’s Exoskeleton Tech

Lockheed Martin has secured rights to use B-Temia's Dermoskeleton technology platform in products intended for military, first responder and industrial applications under a license agreement with the latter.

Dermoskeleton works to prevent overstress on the lower legs and back in order to increase the user's mobility and capacity to carry load, Lockheed said Tuesday.

Glenn Kuller, advanced and special programs vice president at Lockheed's missiles and fire control, said the company will use B-Temia's Dermoskeleton to build up the agility and loadbearing capacity of Lockheed's FORTIS industrial exoskeleton as well as address limitations in exoskeleton devices for first responders and military personnel.

FORTIS works to transfer the weight of the load from the user's body to the ground to increase the user's endurance and strength.

NASA Picks Luna’s RIO Laser for Navigation Doppler LiDAR

NASA has selected a Luna Innovations-built semiconductor laser for use in its Navigation Doppler LiDAR system. “To precisely measure the vehicle speed, direction, and distance, our NDL system uses both Doppler shift and laser beam travel time, which requires a highly stable single-frequency laser source,” said Farzin Amzajerdian, NDL principal investigator from NASA Langley Research Center. “The RIO laser from Luna Innovations has met NASA’s requirements for high reliability, low noise, and ultra-narrow linewidth.”
