MTECH was awarded phase II SBIR from Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to perform a feasibility study using smart sensor materials for development of noise filtering equipment in the month of September 2004.


1. Portable Data Collection System (PDCS) was developed under a SBIR phase 2 contract for NOAA National Weather Service (NWS).

The coming age of wireless Internet will enable a new generation of applications. The ability to provide an anytime, anywhere computing platform will immensely help many field data collection projects and campaigns. This will enable new ways to collect and submit data from the field, provide users capability to interact with central databases from the field in near real time, and allow collaboration among different teams collecting data. To assist customers to take advantage of such technologies, MTECH has developed an innovative solution integrating GPS, digital camera, wireless and PDA technologies, called the PDCS.

The PDCS will help users to do the following:

a. Provide location, date and time at the point of data collection automatically.
b. Transmit data in near real time from the field to a centralized database.
c. Interactively compare field data and laboratory data.
d. Integrate different measurements into a database in near real time.
e. Collaborate with multiple teams in multiple locations

2. Simulation and Modeling System for Healthcare Applications

A simulation and modeling system for business process improvement in the health care industry. The model will enable group practices and hospitals to model various processes in order to identify and improve the process.

3. MTECH RSS-based web application

Realtime Syndicate System (RSS) is a web-based application that will help users to track of news, information and data on a real time basis from multiple web sites. This popular system is supported by thousands of sites world wide including newspapers, Government agencies and academic institutions. MTECH RSS system is a prototype developed for NASA data application under the Committee on Earth Observing Satellite (CEOS) project. This system can be adopted in projects that require rapid distribution of information to millions of users.
