Since founding Artimus Robotics at the end of 2018, we have amassed a wonderful team of people to grow from a small dream to a full company. Our world-class team has enabled us to create a new generation of robotics and machines, and over the course of the last year, we have made great strides in recognition and innovation.
HASEL Actuators meet international certification standards for the design, manufacturing, and testing of electronic technology. We have also been selected for the 2021 NASA SBIR (Small Business Innovation Research) I-Corps Bootcamp. This earned us a $10,000 grant to continue the research and development of intelligent soft actuators. We were also awarded $125,000 from NASA through their Phase 1 SBIR program on May 19, 2021.
At the tail-end of last year, we received $166,000 from the United States Army through their Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase 1 program. The project sought to evaluate the use of Hydraulically Amplified Self-Healing Electrostatic (HASEL) actuators in human-scale robotic systems.
Overall, we have seen tremendous growth and recognition for our innovative HASEL actuators, and because of our superb team, this trend will no doubt continue forward.
