DZYNE Technologies Delivers on Cutting Edge NASA Contract for a Green Airplane Program Plan

Future subsonic X-Planes will reduce fuel burn, emissions, and noise, and create U.S. jobs

 

IRVINE, CA, June 28, 2017 - The future of commercial aviation is now one step closer to becoming reality.  DZYNE Technologies Incorporated (DZYNE) recently presented a comprehensive program plan and system requirement specification to NASA for an ultra-efficient subsonic transport (UEST) manned experimental flight (X-Plane) demonstrator.  DZYNE’s concept is a Blended Wing Body (BWB) that is more efficient and green compared to today’s airline fleet. 

“We are very pleased to have provided NASA with a solid plan that will help them define their highly anticipated program,” said Darrell Gillette, DZYNE President, and Chief Executive Officer.  “We are confident this will result in long-term partnerships with both NASA and other firms, who will help us bring an exciting airplane to life.”

Throughout its contract with NASA, the DZYNE team defined a program plan that included technical maturation plans for enabling technologies critical to the DZYNE BWB.  Overall goals for the anticipated NASA Subsonic X-Plane program are the significant reduction of fuel burn, emissions, and community noise for the future commercial transport fleet.  The DZYNE BWB is expected to be 40-50% more fuel efficient than today’s airliners.

“We are introducing BWB technology to the largest segment of the airliner market, the single-aisle segment, previously thought inaccessible to BWBs,” Gillette said.  “What will ultimately be a game changer for the U.S. aviation industry, DZYNE is applying the BWB to the Super‑Regional segment.”  DZYNE outlined a strategy to maintain the strength of the U.S. aerospace manufacturing industry amidst growing strong foreign competition.

“This airplane will show key technologies working in unison.  A manned BWB demonstration would not only secure America’s role as the leader in airliner technology but also prove technology readiness to the airlines.  This is a necessary step before product launch.  We believe an experimental program would be the capstone event needed to propel BWB technology to the airline market.  Market adoption is necessary to achieve the community benefits envisioned by NASA including U.S. job growth.” said Mark Page, DZYNE Vice President, and Chief Scientist.

DZYNE Technologies Incorporated Awarded Contract for DARPA ICARUS, the Vanishing Aircraft

DZYNE Technologies Incorporated Awarded Contract for DARPA ICARUS, the Vanishing Aircraft

IRVINE, CA, July 13, 2016 - DZYNE Technologies Incorporated (DZYNE) was recently awarded a Phase 1 contract from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) for the Inbound, Controlled, Air-Releasable, Unrecoverable Systems (ICARUS) program to develop vanishing unmanned air vehicles for precise delivery of critical supplies. 

“We are extremely excited to be part of the DARPA ICARUS program.  The concept is to develop a glider that not only delivers 3 lbs of critical equipment over a distance of 150 km, but then disintegrates within hours after landing.  In fact, the airframe must completely vanish from sight,” said Mark Page, DZYNE Vice President and Chief Scientist, and Principal Investigator of DZYNE’s ICARUS program.  “In the current small demonstration size, it is useful for precise delivery.  At a larger scale, this can be useful for emergency relief missions where the accumulation of parachutes and shipping materials becomes a problem.”

Envisioned for both military and civilian applications, the development of the ICARUS technology is envisioned to have a large impact on the way packages are delivered to teams in difficult to access areas, and will lessen the environmental impact of current aerial delivery methods.

"This project represents an important win for DZYNE Technologies, and demonstrates yet again that we are a provider of choice for innovative Unmanned Aircraft Systems,” said Darrell Gillette, DZYNE President and CEO.

11 Vanderbilt, Irvine, CA 92618

IRVINE, CA, January 1, 2016 - The Vehicle DZYNE Studio has recently relocated into our fourth facility within the three years of DZYNE operations in Southern California. Our new home will give DZYNE ample space to expand to meet growing client and product maturation demands, while keeping engineering, assembly, system integration, and test functions under one roof. The facility layout and infrastructure is designed for efficient, scalable production.

The Vehicle DZYNE Studio is home to a team responsible for the design, development and production of multiple manned and unmanned aerial systems, the creation of new system species, and the development of high-performance vehicle aerodynamic solutions.

DZYNE Awarded Contract to Developing State-of-the-Art Collaborative Mobile Computing

DZYNE Awarded Contract to Developing State-of-the-Art Collaborative Mobile Computing

FAIRFAX, VA, September 9, 2015 — DZYNE Technologies was awarded a Phase II Small Business Innovation Research contract to develop new capabilities for mobile devices such as cell phones and tablets to work together as a collective whole while processing data gathered by their users during emergency response and military operations.  This effort, entitled “Djin: A Mobile Cloud Analytic Environment,” significantly enhances mobile cloud technology.  Djin is a key enabling technology for clients who are engaged in time-sensitive business that cannot tolerate the time delays inherent in data-to-decision cycles requiring transmission of high-volume data to a remote processing center.  Djin allows a team of forward-deployed users to transform real-time streaming data into decisive action by enabling mobile devices to assign and share processing tasks and data distribution responsibilities in dynamic and challenging environments.   

“Djin, which is another name for a dust devil, enables mobile devices to metaphorically swirl bits of data and processing amongst themselves to compute analytics and generate results at the point of data collection,” said Dr. Stephen Pledgie, DZYNE’s principal investigator for the effort.

“Compute-intensive algorithms that require processing resources far exceeding those available on a single device, can now be applied to time-sensitive data directly behind the sensor, in the field, where timely actions matter most.”

DZYNE Brings Advanced Visual Analytics to the Transportation Industry

DZYNE Brings Advanced Visual Analytics to the Transportation Industry

FAIRFAX, VA, August 1, 2015 — DZYNE Technologies completed a Phase I Small Business Innovation Research for the Federal Transit Administration that prototyped an innovative software-based tool called Passenger Analytics Advance Sensing (PAAS).  This tool accurately determines the number of passengers using vehicles such as buses and trains in busy transportation systems.  PAAS provides insightful patterns and trends in passenger utilization.  The information generated by PAAS can lead to improved operating efficiency, increased client satisfaction and greater profitability.  With little to no modification required for vehicles that are currently equipped with surveillance cameras, PAAS has the added advantages that it can also be used with any video data sets, past or present, and without burdensome calibration.   

Ward Page, DZYNE Technologies Vice President, is excited by his team’s success in prototyping PAAS on a compressed research and development schedule.

“Our staff specializes in the development and application of advanced sensing and intelligent analytics to defense problems. With PAAS, DZYNE’s Analytic Systems Division is demonstrating the positive impact of dual-use technologies while strategically diversifying DZYNE’s technology portfolio.” said Page.
