DSPCon Awarded Research Grant by U.S. Air ForceNovember 4, 2008
Funds provided by the Phase I Small Business Innovation Research contract will support development of enhanced processing capabilities for propulsion health management systems.
BRIDGEWATER, NJ -- DSPCon, a leading, global supplier of data acquisition, analysis, archiving, and recording solutions for high-value military, aerospace, and rotating machinery applications, announced that it has received a SBIR Phase I contract award from the US Air Force. The award will support development of a modular, expandable, open-standards addition of processing capability for propulsion health management systems that will increase the speed and depth of processing capabilities over currently used full authority digital engine control hardware and software.
Propulsion health management is a critical technology for improving and extending product lifecycles of aircraft systems through enhanced diagnostics, real-time data capture, and reduced maintenance costs. Once completed, the DSPCon platform will represent an improved computational capability over current existing systems through the use of optimized signal processing algorithms. This improved capability will facilitate more thorough, rapid detection and analysis of equipment degradation so appropriate maintenance can be undertaken before degradation evolves into an equipment failure. The technology will be targeted at commercial and advanced aircraft applications.
"DSPCon is proud to continue to support our commercial and government aviation customers with innovative technology solutions for their most demanding test and research projects," said Al Brower, President and Chief Executive Officer of DSPCon. This latest SBIR award reflects our ongoing commitment to technological innovations that exceed our customers' expectations today and in the future."
