Abstract:

This proposal, submitted by Maritime Applied Physics Corp (MAPC) under the U.S. Navy SBIR topic N05-055 "Automated Launch and Recovery of Small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles from Unmanned Surface Vehicles", is intended to address this need by developing a practical automated launch and recovery/refueling systems for unmanned aerial vehicles, for use onboard an unmanned boat. The primary goals of this system are: ¿ Automated start, launch, recovery, and refueling of up to four small (25 lb, 6 foot wingspan, 6 foot length) Naval unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) from an unmanned surface vessel. ¿ Data transfer and UAV reprogramming while refueling. ¿ Fit into the payload bay of the 40 foot Low Speed USSV currently under development by NSWC. ¿ Operate in a seaway.
