Award List:

A Real-Time Turbulence Hazard Cockpit Display

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Paul A. Robinson
Award Amount: $69,064.00
Abstract:
Aircraft encounters with turbulence are the leading cause of injuries in the airline industry and result in significant human, operational, and maintenance costs to the airline community each year. A large contributor to the above injuries and costs is that flight crews do not have sufficient… More

An IntegratedTurbulence Hazard Decision Aid for the Cockpit

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Paul A. Robinson, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $599,594.00
Abstract:
Aircraft encounters with turbulence are the leading cause of injuries in the airline industry and result in significant human, operational, and maintenance costs to the airline community each year. A large contributor to the above injuries and costs is that flight crews do not have sufficient… More

An Integrated Turbulence Hazard Decision Support Tool for Controllers and Dispatchers

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Paul A. Robinson, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $60,000.00
Abstract:
Every day, turbulence has an adverse effect on aircraft operations and capacity of the NAS, costing the airline industry at least $100 million annually in operational inefficiencies, unscheduled maintenance, and injuries. A contributor to these costs is that controllers' and dispatchers' current… More

A Real-Time Quantitative Condition Alerting and Analysis Support System for Aircraft Maintenance

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Paul A. Robinson, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $59,997.00
Abstract:
Financial constraints and the need for improved operational efficiency are requiring airlines to emphasize "on-condition" maintenance over scheduled maintenance where possible. However, many of the specific conditions and events of interest to airline maintenance are not being monitored by… More

3-D Airspeed Sensor for All Phases of Rotorcraft Operations

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Paul Robinson, President
Award Amount: $79,999.00
Abstract:
Current airspeed measurement systems on military and civilian rotorcraft pose a safety hazard and operational liability because the measurement of airspeeds is unreliable below 40 kts, because only forward air speed can be measured, and because the system cannot provide a directional component to… More

A Real-Time Quantitative Condition Alerting and Analysis Support System for Aircraft Maintenance

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Paul R. Robinson, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $306,512.00
Abstract:
Financial constraints, government recommendations, and the need for improved operational efficiency are requiring airlines to review their "on-condition" maintenance practices. Many of the specific conditions and events of interest to airline maintenance are not being monitored by automatic… More

3-D Wind and Turbulence Measurement System for UAV

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Robert J. Wheeler, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $93,150.00
Abstract:
In situ wind and turbulence measurements play a key role in the support and validation of Earth science missions using spaced-based technology. NASA has been using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) in support of these Earth science missions, but the current UAVs do not have sensor packages to make… More

Turbulence Impact Module for ATM Planning and Research

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Paul A. Robinson, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $99,966.00
Abstract:
Every day, turbulence has an adverse effect on aircraft operations and capacity of the NAS, costing the airline industry at least $100 million annually in delays, operational inefficiencies, and injuries. There is a need to research and develop traffic flow and ATM methods that mitigate the… More

In Situ Wake Vortex Encounter Detection and Reporting System

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Bill K. Buck, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $99,962.00
Abstract:
Wake vortices are a critical constraint to aircraft separation and therefore airportal throughput, which is already at or near capacity at many major airports in the NAS. Improvements to current methods of spacing aircraft could significantly increase airportal capacity, but there is currently… More

Integration of Performance Based Operations into ATM and TFM Simulations

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Paul A. Robinson, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $99,875.00
Abstract:
FAA predicts that air traffic will double or even triple by 2025 and unless solutions that enable improvements in the use of airspace can be developed and implemented, significant airspace congestion will occur. Advancements in aircraft capabilities via new technologies can enable aircraft to… More

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Paul Robinson, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $555,456.00
Abstract:
FAA predicts that air traffic will double or even triple by 2025 and unless solutions that enable improvements in the use of airspace can be developed and implemented, significant airspace congestion will occur. Advancements in aircraft capabilities via new technologies can enable aircraft to… More
