  Electro Standards Labs Receives a Phase II SBIR Award to Develop Advanced Sensorless Control of Linear Motors for Next Generation Aircraft Launch Systems
  CRANSTON, RI - Electro Standards Laboratories, a pioneer in the development of advanced electric motor control systems and a provider of innovative research and development services to its clients, announced today that it has been awarded a Phase II Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) award from the Department of the Navy, Naval Surface Warface Center.
  Electro Standards Laboratories will use the funding from the Phase II SBIR to extend the state-of-the-art in sensorless control to linear motor systems, and in particular to the demanding transient requirements of Electromagnetic Aircraft Launch System (EMALS). A variety of methods will be assessed and a new
sensorless controller for linear motors will be developed to meet or exceed the EMALS requirement.

The development of a robust sensorless controller will have immediate benefits for both linear motor and rotational motor systems. Servo-grade performance without mechanical sensors improves relilability,
survivability, and reduces the cost for closed loop control, making it applicable to a wide variety of industrial, commercial, and military applications. Prime candiates for this technology include: linear motor aircraft launch and arrest systems; linear motor conveyor belt and transport systems for moving factory goods through production or storage facilities; linear or rotary vehicle and craft propulsion systems; hybrid electric vehicles; fly-by-wire systems; more-electric aircraft, vehicles, and ships; electrification of mining and drilling equipment; and othe machine tool and general automation industries.

  Electro Standards Laboratories is a privately held company with expertise in electric motor systems, power electronics, control systems, digital signal processor based electronics, mechanics, software programming, GPS, and Web-enabled systems. By combining technologies from a variety of engineering disiplines, Electro Standards has been able to provide leading-edge contract research and development services to its clients, and has been able to develop high performance products for the instrumentation, communications, and materials testing industries. Put the ESL turnkey Engineering Services Group to work for you. For more information about Electro Standards Laboratories, contact Dr. Raymond Sepe, 401-943-1164,
