Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF131-002
Budget: 06/10/13 - 03/17/14

ABSTRACT: The expense in operating legacy aircraft is reduced if the aerodynamic performance can be improved. Many of these aircraft were designed before modern prediction methods and flow controls were available and it is probable that operating costs could be reduced if recent advances were used. Since a complete redesign is out of the questio...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-1-A2.04
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

An accurate prediction of aero-elastic effects depends on an accurate prediction of the unsteady aerodynamic forces. Perhaps the most difficult speed regime is transonic where the motion of the shock wave and its interaction with the boundary layer are dominant factors. In spite of over 40 years research into the computation of unsteady transoni...

Phase 1 SBIR

Topic: 10-1-A2
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

One of the goals of NASA's Fundamental Aeronautics "Subsonic Fixed Wing" project is to reduce fuel burn by 25% 5% by 2018. This corresponds approximately to an increase in Lift/Drag ratio of the same magnitude. While the improvement in design tools funded by NASA will undoubtedly help attain this goal the innovation proposed here is an additio...
