Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA07-012
Budget: 06/16/09 - 12/16/10

Existing approaches to guidance and estimation for intercept of maneuvering targets are often dependent on assumed models of maneuvering target behavior. We have shown in Phase I that intercept lethality can be dramatically reduced when an interceptor guidance strategy optimized for a specific maneuvering target type encounters a target whose be...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA07-012
Budget: 02/13/08 - 08/13/08

Ballistic missiles pose formidable challenges for target tracking and intercept because of their spiraling dynamics and significant maneuverability potential as they re-enter the atmosphere at high speeds. Recent studies have shown that conventional methods to estimation, guidance and control design are unable to guarantee sufficient accuracy ag...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-149
Budget: 04/05/07 - 12/30/11

It is proposed to further develop, flight demonstrate and transition a robust capability to autonomously detect and avoid obstacles typically encountered in flight by fixed or rotary wing micro air vehicles during low-altitude urban operations. There are two basic elements: (1) continually detecting and modeling the observable 3-D obstacle field...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N04-178
Budget: 03/12/07 - 03/12/08

A program is proposed to develop, flight demonstrate and transition a robust capability to autonomously detect and avoid obstacles and features typically encountered in three-dimensional flight by relatively small fixed or rotary wing unmanned air vehicles in low-altitude urban operations. There are two basic parts to the problem: (1) continuall...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-149
Budget: 06/14/06 - 03/14/07

The innovative use of variational methods to dynamically segment scenes, which leads to a fast, natural approach to estimating the location of unknown 3-D obstacles is proposed. The previously developed algorithm has been shown in simulation to be suitable for real-time processing in flight using current generation processors, and to be robust ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA04-165
Budget: 03/31/05 - 09/30/05

We anticipate that the combination of flight proven neural network adaptive control, recently developed methods for nonlinear adaptive guidance, and innovative new methods for nonlinear adaptive estimation can be applied, separately or, perhaps ultimately in combination, to produce never before achieved levels of lethality for intercept of futur...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N04-178
Budget: 10/14/04 - 07/14/05

Successful operation of autonomous flight systems in uncertain environments is currently limited by the lack of practical obstacle avoidance systems. In the proposed effort, we shall exploit recent and on-going advances in the fields of image processing, estimation, real-time path planning, and guidance/control to demonstrate successful flight ...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Georgia Institute of Technology

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF04-T027
Budget: 10/05/04 - 07/05/05

Conventional flow control methods employ actuation frequencies that are the same order as the characteristic frequency of the flow. Georgia Tech has demonstrated novel high-frequency synthetic jet actuation to modify the apparent aerodynamic shape of aerosurfaces and achieve quasi-steady flow reattachment over an otherwise separated airfoil. P...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Georgia Institute of Technology

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF02T002
Budget: 04/30/04 - 04/30/06

Successful operation of next-generation unmanned air vehicles will demand a high level of autonomy. Autonomous low-level operation in a high-threat environment dictates a need for on-board, robust, reliable and efficient trajectory optimization. The proposed effort will develop and demonstrate an innovative combination of traditional analytica...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Georgia Institute of Technology

Agency: Navy
Topic: N04-T004
Budget: 07/01/03 - 04/30/05

Expendable, sonobuoy tube-launched unmanned aerial vehicles employing a variety of sensor systems are recognized as providing an economical means to enhance P-3 aircraft operations and assure crew safety. The proposed phase I program develops a preliminary design for a tube-launched vehicle by optimizing the system design parameters along optim...
