FAA Enters CRADA with Network Centric.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has recently entered into a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the Center for Network Centric Product Support (NCPS) Research, LLC.
The collaborative research is in weather.

The objectives of this research are to establish a network centric airborne web server test capability on an FAA Technical Center aircraft for use in Next Generation Air Transportation System Net-Enabled Operations and System Wide Information Management tests. The focus of this activity will be to demonstrate an airborne network node using IP addressable protocols that will facilitate the real-time collection, processing, and synchronization of atmospheric and other related data in support of 4-D weather cube and weather in the cockpit development and demonstrations.

The government’s Principal Investigator is Thomas E. Ryan at 2023857141. The point of contact for the collaborating party is David Loda, Center for NCPS Research,

LLC, 8602219500.

This CRADA was awarded on October 23, 2008, and has a duration period of 36 months. The results are expected to be a series of real-time demonstrations of this network centric airborne communications capability focused on weather, along with a continuous feed of aircraft weather probe information to the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration and FAA databases.

Connecticut Governor Announces Technology Grants.

State of Connecticut Executive Chambers December 2008

Governor M. Jodi Rell today announced that six more start-up technology companies have received a financial boost through the Connecticut Small Business Incubator Program. Governor Rell announced aid to eight such start-ups in August.

The Small Business Incubator Program (SBIP) was developed in 2007 to further the work of small, technology-based firms. These start-ups have the potential to create new jobs and new economic opportunity for the state.

“The focus on keeping and growing jobs – especially in high-growth sectors such as high-technology businesses – is all the more critical because of the national economic slump,” Governor Rell said. “These are smart, targeted investments that have the potential to pay off handsomely for the people of our state.

“We certainly understand the financial risk and responsibility involved when trying to start a business from scratch,” the Governor said. “This program fosters innovation and accelerates the growth and success of Connecticut’s high-tech sectors. Our support for these companies shows just how committed we are and how important high-tech entrepreneurial businesses are to the state.”

The SBIP recognizes that incubator companies have a strong likelihood of success. According to National Business Incubation Association, 87 percent of incubator companies remain in business and 84 percent remain in the community.

The grants are offered by the Department of Economic and Community Development and administered by the Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology, Inc.

The grant winners include The Center for Network Centric Product Support Research (NCPS). NCPS Research has been established to research, develop and build prototype information management solutions that apply NCPS principles. NCPS is an information technology architecture that has been under development since the 1990s. Using technology that is licensed from Pratt & Whitney, the company is taking the concept of Network Centric Operations for warfare and applying it to the aircraft industry for field maintenance, factory operations and supply chain logistics. A $42,000 grant will be used to development a brand and a business plan, and to defray the cost of prototype demonstrations. NCPS is a participant in CCAT’s incubation program.
