Unmanned Operation of Fly-by-wire Testbed Aircraft

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$149,791.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator:
Eric Ohmit, Project Manager
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:
$93,941.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator:
Jay Nowakowski, Principal Engineer
Abstract:
This program will apply Calspan's background and experience to create a 6 Degree of Freedom motion apparatus and associated technologies for investigating flight mechanics, structural-aerodynamic interactions and flight controls of micro-scale aerial vehicles. This apparatus will be utilized to… More

Agency:
DOD
Principal Investigator:
Jay Nowakowski, Engineer – (716) 631-4161
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
Award Amount:
$124,694.00
Agency:
DOD
Principal Investigator:
Doug Stryker, Principal Investigator – (716) 631-6882
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
