22 Awards Won

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N112-112
Budget: 09/28/11 - 03/28/12
PI: Marat Mor

Traveling sine waves can occur in an aerial refueling hose that result in excessive forces transferred to the receiving aircraft s refueling probe. These waves can arise from failures in the hose reeling mechanism, high aircraft approach speeds, or other inputs that create excessive hose slack. New concepts will be analyzed that significantly re...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Washington

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 09-2-T2.01
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11
PI: Marat Mor

ASSURE - Aeroelastic / Aeroservoelastic (AE/ASE) Uncertainty and Reliability Engineering capability - is a set of probabilistic computer programs for isolating uncertainties in simulation, manufacturing, test, measurement, and test to analysis correlation affecting the AE/ASE characteristics of advanced flight vehicles in flight and on the groun...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N092-111
Budget: 08/10/10 - 08/10/12

A flexible hose and drogue system typically employed in aircraft refueling operations has proved reliable except when excessive forces are induced on the receiving aircraft s refueling probe, invoking a break-away design feature and potentially creating FOD. A new approach is required to eliminate this break-away design feature, thus avoiding FO...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Washington

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-1-T2
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N092-111
Budget: 08/28/09 - 10/29/10

A flexible hose and drogue system typically employed in military aircraft refueling operations has proven reliable except when excessive shear forces on the receiving aircraft s refueling probe are induced, which can induce a break-away design feature. New concepts are required to eliminate this break-away feature, reducing FOD and potential da...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-320
Budget: 08/13/07 - 03/12/10

Aeroservoelastic analysis has achieved a high degree of maturity, covering all flight phases, while the important ground contact phase is not developed to the same degree of fidelity. This requires modeling the landing gear and its associated systems to an improved level of detail, to be interfaced with the aircraft aeroservoelastic models, ena...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-297
Budget: 10/01/06 - 10/01/07

The Phase I research has established the feasibility of achieving substantial reductions in the dynamic response of wind tunnel sting mounts using passive damping techniques. Of the three principal passive damping concepts evaluated, the Hub Damper Unit (HDU) concept was determined to be the most suitable, and further development of this is pla...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A05-058
Budget: 09/21/06 - 09/21/08

The prospect of using smart material technology for active inceptor motion systems is of high interest because of the potential cost, simplicity and performance advantages over current brushless DC motor/gearbox systems. The most suitable smart material concept for accurate motion control is piezoelectric actuation, because of its precise contr...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Washington

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 06-1
Budget: 01/01/06 - 12/31/06

Stirling Dynamics Inc and the University of Washington propose to develop a MATLAB toolbox for rapid aeroelastic (AE) and aeroservoelastic (ASE) modeling, analysis and optimization of flight vehicles. In practically all current aeroelastic analysis/optimization codes, model generation takes a considerable amount of effort, as does the processin...
