Terahertz (THz) system and component developer Bakman Technologies LLC has been awarded a $724,000 Phase II grant from the National Science Foundation’s (NSF’s) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program to continue the development of a low-cost, high-performance, unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV)-mounted THz spectrometer.

After completing the Phase I portion of the NSF grant earlier this year, Bakman has taken the first steps toward realizing a sensor platform capable of performing point detection of pollutants or other gases of atmospheric importance. The Phase II NSF funding will aid in the production of a new class of instruments that are smaller, lighter, more cost-effective, and more sensitive. They will be available in a range of performance levels to suit various markets.

Bakman Technologies was established in 2014 as a spin-off from EMCORE Corp.

An unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), commonly known as a drone, is an aircraft without a human pilot onboard. UAVs are remotely controlled or autonomously operated, and they can be used for various purposes across different industries. These vehicles range in size from small hobbyist models to large military or commercial drones. Key characteristics of unmanned aerial vehicles include: Remotely piloted or autonomous: UAVs can be operated by a human pilot using a remote control system or, in...
