Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF151-072
Budget: 07/23/15 - 04/13/16

ABSTRACT:Air-launched UAVs are a solution to augment future air dominance needs. The UAVs will be required to perform weapons delivery and RF functions, including wide-area search and track, signals intelligence, electronic warfare, and communications functions. The UAVs will be carried in, and launched from a mothership and possess the range ca...

Phase 1 SBIR

Piasecki Aircraft (PiAC) proposes to continue development and testing efforts of the Whimbrel UAS, a low cost, expendable, air-deployed weather survey unmanned aircraft system. The Whimbrel UAS, a low cost, expendable, air-deployed weather survey unmanned aircraft system. The Whimbrel USA has been developed to support the Tropical Cyclone Bounda...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N142-103
Budget: 10/15/14 - 04/15/15

Piasecki Aircraft Corporation (PiAC) proposes to develop an innovative cargo floor of Aluminum Isogrid construction that maintains durability while cutting the weight by a third from 1500lb to 1030lb. This design cuts floor panel numbers from 54 to 24, resulting in reduced maintenance labor. The design allows a multitude of customization opportu...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A13-024
Budget: 05/16/13 - 11/15/13

Overrunning modes will be modeled with all the spring elements in a non-CF induced field in order to analytically determine normal forces applied. Transitions, fits, tapers, outer case thickness/wall will be varied to minimize stress and wear surfaces. The specific outcome of Phase I is to use the high fidelity modeling to assist in detecting we...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Chemical and Biological Defense Program
Topic: CBD12-108
Budget: 04/19/13 - 10/19/13

Piasecki Aircraft proposes to meet the challenge of delivering a biological or chemical sample maintained at less than -20 deg Celcius over a range of up to 1000 miles with a precision landing with a portable unmanned aerial system capable of a vertical takeoff, cruise flight range typical of a fixed wing platform, and able to perform a precisio...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N093-186
Budget: 08/14/12 - 02/18/14

In Phase II, PiAC and CMU plan to develop and demonstrate an operational prototype of a VERTREP Object Proximity Warning System (OPWS) sensor and software. The prototype will be evaluated in a subscale demonstration using the actual sensor package and a surrogate mechanical system to simulate rotorcraft motion to land on a scaled ship deck under...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF103-250
Budget: 07/26/11 - 04/26/12

ABSTRACT: Piasecki Aircraft proposes to use a variant of its Turais Wing and Bomb Bay Launched UAV (WBBL-UAV) in conjunction with a covert trajectory planner and a guided parafoil to meet the challenges presented in the Covert Precision Aerial Delivery System SBIR solicitation. The Turais UAS was designed to be carried in the bomb bay or wing ...
