Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF071-356
Budget: 04/29/08 - 06/14/10

CSA offers a GVT test system that can dramatically reduce down time for AFFTC aircraft. Phase I demonstrated function of critical components that enable a configuration to reduce aircraft downtime by one-half or possibly even more. This proposal offers new techniques that preserve full control of data acquisition for the existing software used...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF071-288
Budget: 03/07/08 - 06/07/10

The objective of this study is to develop low cost, modular, multi-functional, primary spacecraft structures using an open-modular architecture which utilizes a "plywood and two-by-four" construction approach for rapid assembly. To be completed MM

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: MDA04-070
Budget: 02/12/08 - 05/10/10

ABSTRACT: Ground testing of space flight systems is a means of verifying component and system performance, developing new capabilities, and reducing risk. This research will produce a computer-controlled physical system capable of delivering motion, vibration and jitter in six degrees of freedom to a payload up to 300 kg. The payload could be...

Phase 1 SBIR

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

CSA Engineering proposes the design of an adaptive aeroelastic mode suppression for advanced fly-by-wire aircraft, which will partition the modal suppression function from the rigid-body Flight Control System (FCS). CSA is recognized as having world-class expertise in the areas structural dynamics, vibration control, and control-structure inter...

Phase 1 SBIR

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

NASA mission planning in the next decade includes small spacecraft and secondary flight opportunities on Evolved Expendable Launch Vehicles (EELVs), specifically Atlas V and Delta IV. NASA's use of EELVs is accelerated because of the impending termination of the Delta II launcher. Nearly all EELVs slated for launch have significant excess payl...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: CUBRC

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA07-T001
Budget: 08/29/07 - 02/28/08

The optical communication links between various orbiting satellites can serve as the cornerstone of an accurate attitude and geo-referencing scheme when 2 or more vehicles are engaged in laser communication. To date, most research studies into determining relative attitudes and positions between vehicles have involved using the global positioni...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of California, Davis

Agency: Army
Topic: A07-T015
Budget: 07/20/07 - 01/16/08

The CSA-UCDavis team proposes to develop a soil measurement device to allow for rapid and accurate measurement of soil parameters in order to rapidly and accurately characterize the terrain. The device will be man-portable but also allow for mounting to a small robotic vehicle. Parameters that will be measured include but are not limited to c...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF071-288
Budget: 04/17/07 - 04/11/08

The objective of this study is to develop low cost, modular, multi-functional, primary spacecraft structures using a plywood and two-by-four approach for rapid assembly. These structures are comprised of aluminum facesheet/honeycomb-core sandwich panels (plywood) bonded to aluminum extrusions (two-by-four). The structures require simple hand ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF071-356
Budget: 04/16/07 - 01/18/08

An acquisition system that will greatly reduce the time to perform ground vibration tests (GVT) on military aircraft is proposed. The system will automate GVTs, enabling rapid acquisition without requiring setup of nearly all sensors and cabling. Segments of the wireframe geometry and acquisition setup will also be generated automatically. Ai...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-232
Budget: 03/30/07 - 06/20/11

Smart materials have shown promise for fluid power generation within electrohydrostatic actuators (EHAs). The smart material pumps have been successfully built to operate at high frequencies, but valve limitations have consistently reduced overall performance. Both passive and active valve concepts have been designed and tested, but these appr...
