Abstract
In this Phase II project and included Option, KCF Technologies"will further develop, produce and demonstrate ultra-light, quasi-active noise control method for quieting unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). The project will be used to fabricate a fully-integrated prototype to be installed in a production UAV and demonstrated in a relevant environment. This technology builds upon KCF"s leadership in quiet product design and optimization. The noise attenuation technology will be transitioned to the Navy by inserting it into ongoing developments in UAVs with our partners, current UAV manufacturers. The proposed design will reduce the acoustic emissions of current UAVs without significantly impacting vehicle performance. The nature of the proposed solution is inherently compact and light weight.
