P...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N162-094
Budget: 09/27/16 - 04/10/17

In the aviation environment, the native vestibular and somatosensory systems may provide erroneous information leaving only the visual system to provide attitude information essential for safe flight. If the visual system is compromised, spatial discord can lead to aircraft loss of control. The current state-of-the-art in miniaturized Inertial M...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Virginia Polytechnic Institute

Agency: Navy
Topic: N16A-T025
Budget: 07/11/16 - 05/10/17

The Navy seeks to develop a hybrid air/underwater autonomous vehicle that can rapidly inspect and/or engage submerged objects spread over great distances by flying through the air between sequential underwater operations. Compared to a standard AUV, the flight capability will offer substantial operational advantage by reducing mission time. For ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: A2.02
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/10/16

During a piloted forced landing in which the aircraft can no longer maintain level flight and is therefore forced to make an emergency off-airport landing, the human pilot continuously reassesses and updates the plan to minimize on-ground and onboard injury and damage. In the case of an unmanned air vehicle, this level of intelligent risk minim...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S3.04
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/10/16

Barron Associates is proposing a novel atmospheric sensor platform that fills a gap in current sensing capabilities by providing a low-cost, portable technology that can be used for guided remote sensing applications such as cloud characterization, volcanic plume measurements, and polar atmospheric research. The proposed sensor platform consists...
