Unmanned Operation of Fly-by-wire Testbed Aircraft

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Eric Ohmit, Project Manager
Award Amount: $149,791.00
Abstract:
This program will apply Calspan's innovative methods to develop a low cost architecture and system to create an Optionally Piloted Vehicle (OPV) from a previously manned Fly-by-Wire (FBW) fighter aircraft. This OPV's primary use will be as a test bed in support of the Navy for the development of… More

Award Amount: $247,710.00
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: The design and development of Micro Aerial Vehicles (MAV) has moved from scaled down conventional aircraft configurations to biologically-inspired concepts structurally mimicking birds and insects. As this research has expanded, traditional aerodynamic analysis where rigid structures are… More

Wind Tunnel Model Force and Moment Measurement Capability with Corrections for Structural Motion Effects

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Doug Stryker, Principal Investigator – (716) 631-6882
Award Amount: $124,694.00
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: Wind tunnels are used as an important tool to understand the aerodynamics of aircraft. Wind tunnel models are typically instrumented with balances that are capable of measuring the forces and moments that an aircraft will be subjected. Along with measuring these forces and moments… More
