Award List:

Improvements to Sense and Avoid (SAA) Systems for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / DARPA
Principal Investigator: James Utt, President
Award Amount: $99,887.00
Abstract:
There is no Sense and Avoid (SAA) solution for small UAS such as Scan Eagle, Raven, or BATMAV, which represent by far the greatest number of UAS. Equipping small UAS with SAA capability is problematic, mainly due to the very small size, weight and power (SWAP) resources available. The SAA system… More

Improved Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC) Sensors

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: James Utt, President
Award Amount: $99,664.00
Abstract:
AFSOC and other warfighting organizations have the requirement to distinguish enemy combatants from neutral non-combatants either alone or in groups. Movement, object manipulation, and other human activities vary widely and subtle interactions within groups occur continuously. Support tools are… More

Improvements to Sense and Avoid (SAA) Systems for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / DARPA
Principal Investigator: James Utt, President – (937) 572-4576
Award Amount: $749,922.00
Abstract:
Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) across the services need the capability to operate routinely in civil airspace like manned aircraft. Currently, the lack of Sense and Avoid (SAA) technology is the largest obstacle to realizing this capability. The SAA system should autonomously sense air traffic… More
