Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N102-172
Budget: 04/26/12 - 10/11/13

We envision a class of miniature robotic aircraft dubbed Flexrotors which offer range, endurance, and economy at levels associated with wing-borne flight, together with capability for hover and fully-automated turnaround. Routine operations of these aircraft will include dynamic transitions between wing- and thrust-borne flight, for launch and r...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Washington

Agency: Navy
Topic: N09-T001
Budget: 09/27/11 - 03/28/12

We propose to develop techniques and equipment for fully automated retrieval, refueling/ recharging, and relaunch of Aerovel s Flexrotor. Our method would be suitable for use on a small platform such as a boat in a choppy sea. It would allow the ground-handling cycle to be performed remotely with no manual intervention, and so enable extended mi...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Washington

Agency: Navy
Topic: N09B-T039
Budget: 09/27/11 - 03/28/13

We envision a class of miniature robotic aircraft dubbed Flexrotors which offer range, endurance, and economy at levels associated with wing-borne flight, together with capability for hover and VTOL. Such aircraft would use low-disc-loading rotors which must operate efficiently from zero advance ratio in thrust-borne flight, with rotor axis vert...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N102-172
Budget: 10/18/10 - 08/17/11

We envision a class of miniature robotic aircraft dubbed Flexrotors which offer range, endurance, and economy at levels associated with wing-borne flight, together with capability for hover and VTOL. Routine operations of these aircraft will include dynamic transitions between wing- and thrust-borne flight, for launch and retrieval as well as fo...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF093-205
Budget: 04/07/10 - 01/09/11

One of the obstacles to use of unmanned aircraft in the United States is lack of quantitative understanding of the associated risk of damage or injury. We propose to develop and promote practical algorithms for estimating risk of midair collision or surface impact. We further propose complementary work on path planning to minimise risk while a...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Aero/Astro, University of Washington

Agency: Navy
Topic: N09-T001
Budget: 07/16/09 - 02/16/10

We propose to develop techniques and equipment for fully automated retrieval, refueling/ recharging, and relaunch of a miniature VTOL UAV. Our proposed method would be suitable for use on a small platform such as a pickup truck, or a small boat in a choppy sea. It would allow the ground-handling cycle to be performed remotely with no manual in...
