3rd Quarter of 2012 – Odyssian Technology was awarded contracts from the U.S. Department of Transportation Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration to develop “Smart Oil & Gas (O&G) Pipeline Systems”. This system, which has integrated sensor networks, is comprised of smart pipe, smart seal, and smart composite wrap repair subsystems. In addition, Odyssian Technology will develop new cased pipe that lends itself to inspection and the use of smart pipe systems. The new cased pipe design will leverage Odyssian Technology’s patented multifunctional truss electronic-structure technology. Odyssian Technology will use experience and technology gained from developing a smart laser piping system for the Missile Defense Agency (MDA). The Smart O&G Pipeline System will provide continuous real time point-of-source leak detection of O&G pipelines and related facilities. Odyssian Technology will be working with the Pipeline Research Council International (PRCI) and will be offering strategic partnering opportunities to qualified companies having established business within the O&G industry. Odyssian Technology POC: Barton Bennett, (574) 257-7555 x-102. Additional information is available at Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) website:
2nd Quarter of 2012 – Odyssian Technology started an internally funded R&D project entitled, “Brain Controlled Sound Stimulation for Improved Performance of Military Personnel”. This research will establish the foundation for a novel music/sound system that induces selected emotional or cognitive states using brainwave (neuro-signal) feedback control. Strategic partners include scientists and engineers with expertise in Brain Science and Psychology from Indiana University Bloomington and Brain Machine Interface (BM) from University of Dayton.
1st Quarter 2012 – The United States Army Natick Soldier Research, Development and Engineering Center awarded Odyssian Technology a commercial contract to produce two additional power access and control systems, developed under a 2011 Army BAA "Power Access and Control for Army Shelter Systems". These additional systems are being made for use in Army Medical Command shelters.
4th Quarter 2011 – Odyssian completed development of novel microgrid control technology. This technology provides distributed intelligent control of microgrid power generation and individual loads. Demand and [energy] supply are balanced through use of established power privileges and priorities that are aligned with mission criticality. Technology development partners include the University of Wisconsin Madison, the University of Notre Dame and University of Illinois Champaign-Urbana.
1st Quarter 2011 – Completed development of structurally embedded power and signal circuitry for use in Air Force Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS).
