Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB072-042
Budget: 02/26/09 - 06/30/10

DARPA s Rapid Eye program requires a large wing capable of deployment from a small stowed volume while at high altitude. Once deployed this wing must have extremely high aerodynamic efficiency. Out Phase I technical approach was based on an inflatable structure and a high tension membrane surface. We were able to prove feasibility of the stru...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB072-042
Budget: 09/25/07 - 06/30/08

This research addresses a deployable wing for a rapid response high altitude long endurance aircraft that is delivered to a high altitude over a location of interest in a low volume stowed configuration. The challenges are multi-disciplinary and relate to aerodynamics, structures, materials and manufacturing technology. The proposed technical ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N07-059
Budget: 06/25/07 - 01/07/08

The LCAC carries cargo, vehicles and personnel on an open deck that is exposed to wind, saltwater spray, and FOD. This proposal outlines the development of an easily deployed, stowable deck cover that will protect the cargo deck and equipment from these elements. Additionally, this system can be expanded to allow for future use on the proposed J...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 05-2
Budget: 01/01/05 - 12/31/05

The proposed research is focused on developing an aerocapture deceleratorthat is substantially lighter than other approaches by using lightweight,fiber-reinforced films in its construction and by being a smaller size(higher ballistic coefficient) than previously studied ballutes that operate without thermal protection. A second objective is to ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Chemical and Biological Defense Program
Topic: CBD04-111
Budget: 05/10/04 - 11/09/04

Current collective protection systems are large, heavy and expensive, and involve an unacceptable logistics burden when applied to smaller systems that are lightweight and easy to use for one to five persons. Certain elements exist that may apply to smaller crew tents with passive protection systems. Some of these come from research for indivi...

Phase 1 SBIR

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

There are two distinct approaches to aerocapture: drag modulation and lift-vector control. All current research under the NASA ROSS In-Space Propulsion Technology Program is based on the drag modulation approach. However, a growing number of researchers are convinced that lift-vector control will be necessary, particularly for the more challengi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A03-193
Budget: 12/12/03 - 06/15/04

Airbeam shelters are used for military deployments, disaster relief, and commercial shelters. The advantages of airbeam shelters include lightweight, low pack volume and rapid deployment and strike. When a shelter is deployed for an anticipated long duration at a given site, it would be advantageous to rigidize the airbeams to eliminate the ne...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A01-192
Budget: 01/13/03 - 01/12/05

Actuators are a major cost element of precision aerial delivery systems. At this time, only the most "brute force" approaches are being used, typically electromechanical winches. Simple winches are acceptable for lightweight systems, but become a significant cost and weight factor for heavier payloads. What makes known concepts for aircraft ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Special Operations Command
Topic: SOCOM02-003
Budget: 06/12/02 - 11/12/02

Special Operations units need rapid response resupply of lightweight but critical items, including ammunition, food/water, weapons and commo. Technology is advancing in the area of precision aerial delivery of cargo, but in general, current R&D for cargo delivery addresses heavier payloads (1 ton and up), requires moderate accuracy (100 m CEP) ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A01-192
Budget: 01/28/02 - 01/15/03

A number of precision-guided aerial delivery systems are in development or advanced prototype stages, in accordance with Army Science and Technology (S&T) objectives. The actuator subsystems are a major cost element in each of these systems, in some cases, the largest cost element. The actuator subsystem, consisting of an energy source, contro...
