Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF112-187
Budget: 10/28/11 - 07/27/12

ABSTRACT: Wind tunnels are used as an important tool to understand the aerodynamics of aircraft. Wind tunnel models are typically instrumented with balances that are capable of measuring the forces and moments that an aircraft will be subjected. Along with measuring these forces and moments knowledge of the aircraft attitude is required in order...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF093-108
Budget: 06/15/11 - 09/15/13

ABSTRACT: The design and development of Micro Aerial Vehicles (MAV) has moved from scaled down conventional aircraft configurations to biologically-inspired concepts structurally mimicking birds and insects. As this research has expanded, traditional aerodynamic analysis where rigid structures are assumed, appears not to have the fidelity requi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF093-108
Budget: 07/22/10 - 04/22/11

This program will apply Calspan s background and experience to create a 6 Degree of Freedom motion apparatus and associated technologies for investigating flight mechanics, structural-aerodynamic interactions and flight controls of micro-scale aerial vehicles. This apparatus will be utilized to better understand the physics of these vehicles an...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N091-038
Budget: 03/15/10 - 03/23/12

This program will apply Calspan s innovative methods to develop a low cost system to create an Optionally Piloted Vehicle (OPV) from a previously manned Fly-by-Wire (FBW) fighter aircraft. This OPV s primary use will be as a test bed in support of the Navy for the development of avionics, weapon and advanced seeker systems. This OPV could be use...
