Abstract
The proposal presents a solution to the challenge presented in SBIR N093C-186, that is to develop an Object Proximity Warning System (OPWS) for use by rotorcraft performing VERTREP missions at sea. The Phase I approach is to research and identify a reliable and effective sensor suite, extend algorithms for safer and more effective VERTREP operations, and develop a conceptual design that includes a user-friendly interface for the air crews. The developmental tasks are challenging in that the sensor suite must identify landing areas and evaluate them on the constantly moving surface of a ship at sea. The solution will feature highly reliable sensors, open architecture software algorithms, and reliable warnings and information to aviators involved in VERTREP or other low altitude operations.
