45 Awards Won

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: A2.01
Budget: 06/17/15 - 12/17/15

Tao Systems proposes to develop a sensor system providing quantitative in-flight boundary layer flow characterization with fast response, low volume, minimal intrusion, high accuracy and robustness to weather conditions. Aviation loss of control (LOC) accidents often results from stalls and uncertain weather/flow conditions, often at low altitud...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: The Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T4.01
Budget: 05/06/15 - 05/05/17

Control of extremely lightweight, long endurance aircraft poses a challenging aeroservoelastic (ASE) problem due to significantly increased flexibility, and aerodynamic, structural, and actuator nonlinearities. To obtain the benefits of increased aerostructural efficiency, the controller needs to trim at a specified optimal shape while minimizin...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-2-A2.06
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

Large amplitude, unsteady heating loads and steep flow gradients produced in regions of shock-wave/turbulent boundary-layer interaction (SWTBLI) pose a serious and challenging problem for designers of hypersonic vehicles. Characterizing SWTBLI flow features, such as the size of flow separation, is important for design evaluation and CFD validati...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Minnesota

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-2-T2.01
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

New aircraft designs depend on an integrated active approach to flight control, flutter suppression and structural mode attenuation to meet desired handling quality performance and gust load alleviation. Tao Systems will team with Professor Gary Balas at the University of Minnesota to (1) develop a robust controller that demonstrates improved ae...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: California Institute of Technology

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 11-1-T2.02
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

Flight control, structural reliability, and efficiency depend critically on the ability to assess the time-accurate unsteady aerodynamic loads and moments for each lifting surface under nominal and adverse flow conditions. Tao Systems and California Institute of Technology propose to develop a flow control system that utilizes advanced sensors a...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-1-A4.02
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

Aerodynamic and structural reliability and efficiency depends critically on the ability to accurately assess the aerodynamic loads and moments for each lifting surface. A thin-film, flight-worthy sensor capable of providing spatio-temporally accurate estimation of aerodynamic coefficients enables revolutionary energy-efficient, physics-based, fo...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Virginia Polytechnic Institute

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

The tracking of critical flow features (CFFs) such as stagnation point, flow separation, shock, and transition in flight provides insight into actual aircraft performance/safety. Sensing of these CFFs across flight regimes involves numerous challenges such as a wide temperature/pressure range from subsonic to hypersonic flows. Tao Systems, Mesos...
