Innovation

In response to this technological sea change, the University of Cincinnati created RouteMaster—a collision avoidance and traffic management digital infrastructure that allows manned and unmanned systems to operate effectively in confined spaces such as an emergency response scenario or the modern urban environment. Just as the internet provided a digital infrastructure that de-conflicted and sped messages to their destinations from computers with vastly different operating systems, RouteMaster provides a digital...

Innovation

A low risk approach to develop an economical, high-performance pilot optional autonomous airborne surveillance platform and remotely piloted or assisted Personal Air Vehicle (PAV) based on the widely used FAA certified Cirrus SR22 aircraft.

Objective 

Enable remote pilot assisted, remote pilot and full autonomous operations of the aircraft for surveillance operations and civil PAV operations. Adding a range of interchangeable payloads for communication relay, audio warning systems, or Chemical Biological...

Optical-radar sensor fusion for UAV onboard detect and avoid

About project

Innovation

Design, develop and deploy a leading edge multi-factor Superior Size Weight and Power (SWaP) DAAS positioned to be employed as the de facto system in both military and civilian UASs. This project demonstrates a commercially viable DAAS solution incorporating a novel patented RF noise radar system which allows for distance object detection, approximate object classification, and an immunity to being jammed or even detected. In addition to the obvious...

Innovation

The Ohio State University (OSU) teamed up with Safran Electrical & Power in Ohio and the University Dayton Research Institute (UDRI) to develop high-speed brushless doubly-fed machines (BDFMs) for aviation propulsion application using a direct current distribution power system. OSU leads the electromagnetic design of the electric machine, power converter design and drive system control algorithm design. Safran leads the mechanical design and thermal design of the machine and builds the machine prototypes. UDRI...
