6 Awards Won

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF02-256
Budget: 07/22/02 - 05/22/03

SPA proposes to develop a low-cost, potentially retro-fit capable fiber optic sensor based wing shape measurement system. This open-architecture system will accomodate more than 120 sensors for real-time measurement, procesing, and visualization of wing shape. Mechanistic and neural network-based wing shape algorithms will be developed. The in...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N02-030
Budget: 06/06/02 - 12/05/02

Systems Planning and Analysis, Inc. (SPA) proposes to develop a novel shipboard recovery, securing, and handling interface for the VTUAV and other helicopter systems. This system will be designed to effectively recover the landing UAV without human intervention. During the Phase I effort, the effectiveness of the automatic guidance and securi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD01-CBM01
Budget: 02/20/02 - 08/20/02

Systems Planning and Analysis, Inc. (SPA) proposes to develop a temperature compensated Bragg grating based acoustic emission crack detection (AECD) sensor system based on our proprietary temperature compensation technique for matched Bragg grating sensor systems. Leveraging previous work by the sponsor, we will perform analytical and experimen...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD01-CBM10
Budget: 01/24/02 - 07/24/02

Recently, a number of active military helicopters have been outfitted with a number of sensors which may be used to perform usage monitoring for the individual helicopters. However, a methodology must be developed to utilize this information in an effective manner to reduce maintenance costs while maintaining the overall safety of the aircraft....

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A97-134
Budget: 01/18/01 - 01/17/03

Systems Planning and Analysis, Inc. (SPA) proposes to develop a full-scale, semi-active recoil damper system for the Apache AH-64 attack helicopter nose chain gun based on magnetorheological (MR) fluid and digital control technologies. By actively dissipating recoil forces, which excite the flexural modes of the gun barrel and the gun mount str...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N97-092
Budget: 06/23/00 - 06/22/02

SPA proposes to develop a "smart" AN/SQR-19 towed array module incorporating a fiber optic towed array shape measurement system capable of greatly improving the accuracy and efficiency of shape estimates. The final product of this Phase II effort will be a fully integrated array module that can be sea tested as an add-on to the TARS array syste...
