Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-1-A1.05
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

Automation of a flight control system to perform functions normally attributed to humans is often not robust and limited to specific operating conditions and types of operation and a small set of fixed behaviors (i.e. modes). eSky has shown that metrics such as the time delay between a required control input from the crew and the actual input i...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 09-1
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

eSky will develop specific crew state metrics based on the timeliness, tempo and accuracy of pilot inputs required by the H-mode Flight Control System (HFCS). Specific scenarios will be developed which define required inputs by the pilot and metrics of timeliness, tempo and accuracy will be developed for each required input. An existing HFCS s...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 09-2
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

Researchers at the Institute for Human and Machine Cognition invented OZ, a primary flight display that provides a single, unified graphic display of critical flight information. OZ virtually eliminate the need to scan flight instruments and provides superior performance for flight in low visibility conditions compared to current integrated avi...

Phase 1 SBIR

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

With aircraft automation increasingly able to control flight autonomously, situational awareness and engagement of the crew can suffer. To improve aviation safety further we need new paradigms to balance between exploiting increasingly powerful technologies and retaining and promoting aeronautical decision making (ADM) by the crew.

Phase 1 SBIR

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

The proposed SBIR project will develop OZ, an innovative primary flight display for aircraft. The OZ display, designed from "first principles" of vision science, cognition, and Human-Centered Computing, brings all cockpit information required for flight together into a single, unified display that uses a common frame of reference employing both...
