Aerobotix-Powered Mobile Robot Helps Compass Technology Group Win Top Defense Manufacturing Technology Award | News

Huntsville, Alabama – (BUSINESS WIRE) – February 15, 2022–

Aerobotix, an AS9100 certified robotics integrator and metrology company FANUC, today officially congratulated key partner Compass Technology Group (CTG) on winning the top Defense Manufacturing Technology Achievement Award (DMTAA) at the recent Defense Manufacturing Conference (DMC). Atlanta-based CTG, a leading provider of advanced radio frequency (RF) material measurement equipment, has led Aerobotix to develop an award-winning project – an adaptive fairing diagnostics system that is also the first use of a collaborative mobile robot in the air.

“Aerobotix is ​​very proud and honored to assist the Compass Technology Group in this,” said Josh Tuttle, Aerobotix’s Business Development Manager. “This is truly an example of Industry 4.0, as these self-navigation robots can be quickly re-equipped to perform multiple tasks and in different locations. In terms of quality control, this technology can be used to save significant funds for organizations and further increase production and production costs. ”

The mobile robot operates the Advanced Microwave Mapping Probe (AMMP), developed by CTG engineers as part of the Air Force’s Innovation Research Small Business (SBIR) program. The system uses microwave signals for non-destructive assessment (NDE) of aircraft overflights and to detect defects such as stratification or water ingress. Aerobotix has developed and built a system using the collaborative robot FANUC CRX-10iA, which rides on an automated controlled car and uses LiDAR to scan the work area for safe navigation. The robot finds and focuses on the part, adjusts the trajectory of the scan and performs a detailed analysis of the part.

“This dramatic technological leap has allowed us to deploy laboratory precision in the Air Force production environment,” said Dr. John Schultz, Chief Research Fellow at CTG. “Combining our sensors and algorithms with the Aerobotix automation system has won us over by literally pressing pennies. will bring back the best parts, faster and at a lower cost. “

Founded in 1999, the annual DMTA Award is given to teams made up of government, industrial and research staff responsible for outstanding projects in manufacturing technology. These projects must demonstrate technical advances and provide responsive world-class manufacturing capabilities that, at an affordable price, meet the needs of the fighter throughout the life cycle of a defense acquisition.

“Aerobotix is ​​perhaps best known for its robotic imaging, but this award for our work with CTG underscores our experience in metrology and navigation systems,” Tuttle added. “We are a reliable integrator of automation for the aerospace industry and are excited to collaborate with other companies on future projects.”
