Award List:

Fully autonomous retrieval, turnaround, and launch for a long-endurance UAV with VTOL capability

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2009 / STTR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$69,881.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator:
Tad McGeer, President
Research Institution:
Aero/Astro, Univ. of Washington
RI Contact:
Uy-Loi Ly
Abstract:
We propose to develop techniques and equipment for fully automated retrieval, refueling/ recharging, and relaunch of a miniature VTOL UAV. Our proposed method would be suitable for use on a small platform such as a pickup truck, or a small boat in a choppy sea. It would allow the ground-handling… More

Rotor development for a miniature tilt-body UAV having long endurance and VTOL capability

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2010 / STTR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$69,977.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator:
Tad McGeer, President
Research Institution:
University of Washington
RI Contact:
Juris Vagners
Abstract:
We envision a class of miniature robotic aircraft dubbed Flexrotors which offer range, endurance, and economy at levels associated with wing-borne flight, together with capability for hover and VTOL. Such aircraft would use low-disc-loading rotors which must operate efficiently from zero advance… More

Risk modeling for unmanned aircraft in US national airspace

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$99,675.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator:
Tad McGeer, President
Abstract:
One of the obstacles to use of unmanned aircraft in the United States is lack of quantitative understanding of the associated risk of damage or injury. We propose to develop and promote practical algorithms for estimating risk of midair collision or surface impact. We further propose complementary… More

Fully autonomous retrieval, turnaround, and launch for a long-endurance UAV with VTOL capability

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2011 / STTR / Phase II
Award Amount:
$499,995.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator:
Tad McGeer, President – (541) 490-4103
Research Institution:
University of Washington
RI Contact:
Juris Vagners
Abstract:
We propose to develop techniques and equipment for fully automated retrieval, refueling/ recharging, and relaunch of Aerovel"s Flexrotor. Our method would be suitable for use on a small platform such as a boat in a choppy sea. It would allow the ground-handling cycle to be performed remotely… More
