Small Business Innovation Research - a Pathway to Commercial Success

Small Business Innovation Research - a Pathway to Commercial Success

Black Swift Technologies works through NOAA and Air Force SBIR to Develop Multi-Mission UAS Capabilities

In 2018, Black Swift Technologies (BST) was awarded a Phase I SBIR grant, the purpose of which was to determine the scientific, technical, and commercial feasibility of a proposed air-deployed unmanned aerial system (UAS) for boundary layer observations in turbulent environments.  Critical to the success of the UAS platform was Black Swift’s ability to reduce the complexity and weight of the vehicle compared with existing platforms, offering an order of magnitude decrease in cost while maintaining endurance without sacrificing performance and measurement quality. These characteristics proved to be equally valuable in the eyes of the United States Air Force.
