III. Statement of work to done (outline):

IV. Discussion of commercial market applications (Why proposal should be funded):

V. Comprehensive schedule:

VI. Itemized budget:

 

IGPSS PLANNING & SOFTWARE $48,100

IGPSS TEST $23,225

IGPSS HARDWARE $15,125

IGPSS MISC $7,500

GRAND TOTAL $93,950

 

VII. Current Status

The "proof of concept" phase of the Hexapod Project has been completed.  Many modifications and improvements to the system have been made.   The feasibility of the concept has demonstrated by thorough laboratory testing.  The contractor, ADS, investigated commercialization options.  Until a commercial partner can be found, further development of the Hexapod system cannot continue.
