Award List:

OZ: An Innovative Primary Flight Display

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Steven L. Fritz, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $99,251.00
Abstract:
The proposed SBIR project will develop OZ, an innovative primary flight display for aircraft. The OZ display, designed from "first principles" of vision science, cognition, and Human-Centered Computing, brings all cockpit information required for flight together into a single, unified display that… More

H/OZ: PFD and Collaborative Flight Control System

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Steven Fritz, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $99,072.00
Abstract:
With aircraft automation increasingly able to control flight autonomously, situational awareness and engagement of the crew can suffer. To improve aviation safety further we need new paradigms to balance between exploiting increasingly powerful technologies and retaining and promoting aeronautical… More

H/OZ: PFD and Collaborative Flight Control System

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Steven Fritz, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $595,490.00
Abstract:
Researchers at the Institute for Human and Machine Cognition invented OZ, a primary flight display that provides a single, unified graphic display of critical flight information. OZ virtually eliminate the need to scan flight instruments and provides superior performance for flight in low… More

Flight Crew State Monitoring Metrics

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Steven Fritz, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $99,968.00
Abstract:
eSky will develop specific crew state metrics based on the timeliness, tempo and accuracy of pilot inputs required by the H-mode Flight Control System (HFCS). Specific scenarios will be developed which define required inputs by the pilot and metrics of timeliness, tempo and accuracy will be… More

Auditory Presentation of H/OZ Critical Flight Data

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Steven Fritz, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $99,183.00
Abstract:
Automation of a flight control system to perform functions normally attributed to humans is often not robust and limited to specific operating conditions and types of operation and a small set of fixed behaviors (i.e. modes). eSky has shown that metrics such as the time delay between a required… More
