Coupled Viscous/Inviscid Analysis of Powered-Lift Airfoils and Wings

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Ernie Keen, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $99,949.00
Abstract:
This proposal is in response to NASA SBIR Topic A2.08 in the area of "Variable Fidelity, Physics-Based Design/Analysis Tools". The development of a coupled viscous/inviscid analysis tool for powered-lift airfoils and wings is presented. In this context, powered-lift airfoils are taken to… More

Virtual Pilot for High-Fidelity Rotorcraft Simulation

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: John Ohanian, Aerospace Engineer – (540) 961-0067
Award Amount: $69,948.00
Abstract:
AVID will implement and compare the performance of two algorithms to provide robust solutions to the problem of calculating control inputs for user-specified trajectories: an"indirect"dynamic inversion approach that inverts the vehicle aerodynamic model to provide the control inputs… More

Shape Changing Maneuverable Munition Using Novel Alloys/Materials for Flight Performance Enhancements

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
