Award List:

Airspace Analyzer for Assessing Airspace Directional Permeability

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Joseph W. Krozel, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
We build a software tool which enables the user (airline or Air Traffic Service Provider (ATSP)) the ability to analyze the flight-level-by-flight-level permeability of airspaces constrained by weather-hazards (turbulence, icing, and convection). The Airspace Analyzer automatically determines the… More

Flexible Tube-Based Network Control

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Dr. Joseph W. Krozel, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
The Innovation Laboratory, Inc. builds a control system which controls the topology of an air traffic flow network and the network flow properties which enables Air Traffic Management (ATM) to adapt to hazardous weather constraints and provide high capacity flows in the National Airspace System… More

Derived Weather State Information via ADS-B

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Jimmy Krozel, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $125,000.00
Abstract:
The Innovation Laboratory, Inc., proposes to use Automatic Dependent Surveillance?Broadcast (ADS-B) information as the basis of atmospheric wave and turbulence identification. Working in conjunction with the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), we research the feasibility of using the… More

Weather Information Services Supporting Civilian UAS Operations

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Jimmy Krozel, Chief Scientist
Award Amount: $124,089.00
Abstract:
We build a system that supports the weather information needs of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) planning to fly in the National Airspace System (NAS). This weather information service will supply information to UAS Ground Control Stations (GCSs) from the Next Generation Air Transportation System… More

FACET as a Collaborative, Open Source UAS Research Platform

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Jimmy Krozel, Chief Scientist
Award Amount: $125,000.00
Abstract:
We build a tool that accelerates Research and Development (R & D) aimed at introducing Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) into the National Airspace System (NAS). In the proposed effort, FACET will form the basis of a collaborative R & D platform, an environment where users can share open… More

Convective Induced Turbulence (CIT) Detection via Total Lightning Sensing

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Jimmy Krozel, Chief Scientist
Award Amount: $125,000.00
Abstract:
We proposes to build a prototype Convective-Induced Turbulence (CIT) hazard detection system based on total lightning sensing as an indicator of the location and severity of in-cloud CIT. Total lightning is the combination of cloud-to-ground and in-cloud lightning and has been shown to correlate… More
