Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: A3.02
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/09/16

ADS-B is emerging as the defacto standard for manned aircraft in the context of NextGen ATM. There are several advantages to ADS-B, but most ADS-B gear was developed for manned aircraft, and some smaller versions have been developed for UAVs recently. However, even the smallest currently-available ADS-B transponder is still about 250g, which is ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: A3.02
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/09/16

A hardware/software solution for autonomous reporting of flight operations of a UAS is proposed. Such a system would enable the UAS to report identity, position, and other information to local human and autonomous traffic and air traffic controllers in an autonomous manner, in legacy terminology. This will improve the overall safety of UAS opera...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Illinois

Agency: Navy
Topic: N15A-T009
Budget: 06/15/15 - 11/16/15

The technical requirements for the simulation of a helicopter towing an aircraft while performing a MAD mission are identified. Several technical solutions to achieve high stability during the mission are presented. In Phase I, a simulation will be set up to begin trade studies on the proposed mission. Also, if needed, flight tests will be condu...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF151-194
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

ABSTRACT:The need for a natural language query capability for DoD regulations is identified. A technical solution based on artificial intelligence, cognitive computing, and natural language query technology is presented. In Phase I, various techniques will be investigated, and one or more solutions will be developed and tested. In Phase II, the ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 12-2-S1.08
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

A novel design for an in situ air sampling sensor for CO2 and trace gases is proposed. The sensor, named AirCore, provides the advantages of existing in situ sensors (e.g. high resolution) but eliminates possible biases in analysis that often originate from imperfect measurement condition. The AirCore provides a significant savings in cost and w...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 14-1-S1.07
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

KalScott Engineering, and the subcontractor, Princeton University propose the development and demonstration of compact and robust methane sensor for small Unmanned Aerial Systems (s-UAS) by synthesizing state-of-the-art, laser-based detection methods with the rapidly increasing s-UAS market. The overall goal of this project is to develop and dem...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N112-169
Budget: 02/09/12 - 08/08/12

Under U.S. defense policy, the Navy is responsible for delivering satellite communications to disadvantaged users, the term for intelligence officials and troops working in remote areas, often with no more resources than backpacks or small vehicles. MUOS is slated to provide coverage for these users for the next many years. In situations where...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 11-1-S1.08
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

The AirCore is a simple and novel atmospheric air column sampler to validate satellite observation data of greenhouse gases, using a lightweight, inexpensive coated stainless steel coil. The simple design of the leads to cost savings during manufacture and operation. The addition of a UAV to the AirCore system provides much needed functionality...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF093-141
Budget: 04/08/11 - 04/30/13

Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast (ADS-B) is an airspace surveillance system being implemented in the US and several nations globally. In this system, each aircraft determines its location using GPS, and broadcasts this to other local traffic and ground stations, along with other flight data (aircraft ID, speed, heading, flight number, ...
