Phase 1 SBIR

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

The proposed research will explore innovative flight control methodologies combining recent advances in system identification, novel flight sensors, and neural network based adaptive flight control design to develop a new, high bandwidth flight controller architecture capable of rejecting the disturbing effects of wind gusts and turbulence. The ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Special Operations Command
Topic: SOCOM05-011
Budget: 08/08/08 - 10/02/09

USSOCOM has a need to provide high-resolution video imagery to the sensor operators of current and future gunships, other unmanned aircraft systems, and similar platforms, while supporting missions above an area of interest. The key factors driving this need are the ability to see beyond visual range of the main platform, assist sensors on the ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-164
Budget: 04/10/06 - 11/12/08

Warfare within a city is a difficult business not only because of the abundance of man-made obstacles, but because the effects of bomb strikes are difficult to measure. Reconnoitering at low altitude and close range by a manned aircraft is often prohibitively dangerous because of the lack of maneuvering room and the high probability of hostile f...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Special Operations Command
Topic: SOCOM05-011
Budget: 02/21/06 - 09/12/06
PI: Paul Eiff

During warfare, strikes made with surgical precision by Special Operations Forces reduce collateral damage and loss of life among non-combatants and have become the expectation of our war-fighters. Such strikes, however, require the ability to survey the target area in a timely fashion and guide munitions accurately. High altitude photographs ...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Purdue University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N04-T004
Budget: 09/14/05 - 09/14/07

The Navy desires to equip P-3s and similar future aircraft with UAVs that can be launched from a standard A-size sonobouy tube and return real-time information including video images from remote locations for further analysis and action. Lite Machines has developed an electric-powered rotary-wing UAV having a cylindrical body and a counter-rotat...
