Title: Collaboration effort pays off for Tanner Research Inc. Folder: SBIR / STTR Success Stories (Innovation)
Description: The military services have an ongoing interest in micro-air vehicles (MAVs) suitable for various stressing missions. Such MAVs must be able to operate autonomously with limited a priori knowledge about their environment and due to their small size and limited payload, the collision-avoidance function must be complementary with other mission functions. Tanner Research, in collaboration with the University of Maryland, developed a demonstration of the combined algorithms in autonomous vehicles with the objectives of displaying useful functionality and testing the feasibility of implementing the algorithms for a small unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) application using state-of-the-art, miniature commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) components.

Description: The Air Force needed a low-cost, autonomous aerial system that could be air deployed virtually anywhere to provide loitering capability over an assigned region for a sustained period. Using pultrusion technology, KaZaK Composites Inc., developed a process for producing low-cost, high-performance carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) composite wings for a compressed carriage, long-loiter unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). Several wing kits were delivered to a major aerospace prime contractor for an internally-funded, developmental unmanned aerial system. KaZaK’s pultruded wing technology is a low-cost method of producing large quantities of lightweight wings of CFRP composite construction. The technology could also be used for manufacture of control surfaces, fuselage structures, or any other constant cross-section component for UAVs or missiles.
