Title: Multi-Function Laser Radar (LADAR) for Rotorcraft Brownout and Cable Warning/Obstacle Avoidance
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Contract: FA8650-10-M-1807
Award Amount: $61,035.00
 

Abstract:

This proposal is to investigate the feasibility of using a multifunction laser radar system to address both the zero-visibility and wire strike problems. The technical challenge is to design a lightweight system which can detect and warn of wire strike hazards at long range during low level flight while simultaneously providing the capability to detect surface hazards in the presence of volumetric scatterers such as dust. BENEFIT: This SBIR proposal addresses an urgent need to improve the safety of operations for rotorcraft operating in a DVE environment. The potential users include all branches of the military and related Government agencies, as well as commercial rotorcraft operators.
