Diversified Technical Systems Inc. (DTS), a leader in ruggedized data recorders for high performance test and evaluation applications, announced that the company was awarded a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II grant by the US Air Force Research Lab at Eglin AFB. Under this grant DTS will further its Phase I development of next generation advanced programmable integrated data recorders for embedding in military assets. The $750K award has already commenced and will conclude by August 2010.

DTS is a leader in dynamic impact testing and automotive crash test recorders. In late 2006 the firm brought to market a new line of configurable data recorders and sensor systems marketed under the brand e-SENSING™. This new product line delivers the ruggedization and high speed product values of the legacy DTS products in micro and nano packages to satisfy the needs of emerging commercial testing and monitoring applications.

To accomplish the objectives of this SBIR project, DTS will leverage the unique capabilities of the e-SENSING™ Transient Shock Recorder - TSR and SLICE™ products to create a commercially viable data recorder solution that satisfies the market demand for embedded data recording of a wide range of assets.
