Contract: W911QY-12-C-0173
Award Amount: $729,939.00
 

Abstract:

Wizbe Innovations has developed a fabric with controllable air flow. This system used in parachutes has the potential to reduce opening shock, the time in the air, stability, directional control, and the landing speed. During Phase II, further development of the concepts derived in Phase I will be pursued with the ultimate goal to demonstrate the technology on prototype parachutes. Wizbe Innovations and its partners will develop, demonstrate, and deliver a parachute prototype that has the ability to actively change air permeability upon application or removal of a trigger mechanism.
