Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA04-051
Budget: 05/30/06 - 11/13/08

The Phase I of this effort encompassed extensive data review and preliminary analysis to define the instability in the subject class of thrusters, identify key factors contributing to the unstable behavior, and outline a plan for the resolution of instability. These key factors were identified as: Mon level in the oxidizer, propellant temperatu...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N03-132
Budget: 12/03/04 - 12/03/06

This proposal provides a plan for continuing the successful first-phase effort for developing pilot behavioral models that perform flight operations near ships. Phase I provided functioning pilot models for launch and recovery of fixed-wing and helicopter vehicles but without airwake or ship motion disturbances. Phase II extends these models for...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA04-051
Budget: 05/10/04 - 11/09/04

Compact, high energy storable propellant thrusters are needed for a wide variety of applications from sattelite control to space missions to missile defense systems. As the thrusters are made smaller, higher performing, with more intense energy release and are needed to operate in more extreme environments, combustion instability becomes a mor...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N03-132
Budget: 09/17/03 - 03/17/04

The proposed Phase I SBIR program will result in development and validation of simple pilot models to predict the control activity required for a rotorcraft and for a conventional fixed wing aircraft to approach, land on, and take off from a ship. The proposed effort is based on a proven technical approach to pilot behavioral modeling for a vari...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A98-130
Budget: 02/07/00 - 02/07/02

The proposed Phase 11 SBIR program will produce a comprehensive development of analytical pilotage task characterizations to model and simulate a range of rotorcraft flight maneuvers for different classes of rotorcraft. The program employs innovative research in the areas of pilot modeling, rotorcraft inverse simulation, pilot- vehicle-task anal...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A98-130
Budget: 12/15/98 - 06/15/99

The proposed Phase I SBIR program provides a means of analyzing and extending current methods of gathering simulator and in-flight assessments of helicopter flight tasks and maneuvers through application of task performance math models. The program employs innovative research in the areas of pilot modeling, rotorcraft inverse simulation modelin...
