"Flight Regression " - Aircraft Accident Presentation
Flight Regression is a suite of products and services for analyzing and presenting aircraft accident data. We have been working with expert accident investigators to develop highly graphical and intuitive presentations of the data relevant to an aircraft accident. Our website overviewing the services we are providing, including downloadable examples of the types of presentations that we have produced, is viewable at www.flightregression.com.
"Shoofly" - Management Software for Airport FBOs
Shoofly is a Fixed-Based-Operator (FBO) software
package for small to medium airport operators that rent airplanes,
provide training, sell aviation fuel, provide air charter, and other
similar services. We have not yet decided if this product idea is commercially viable. An example potential competitor can be seen at www.myfbo.com.
"Digital Gear" - Systems for Car Performance
Digital Gear is a product line
centered around a very graphical, in-car, display system for monitoring various aspects
of a car's performance. The system can be installed on a laptop, or it can be
run on an embedded system with an integrated touch screen LCD mounted
inside the car. A data link cable ties the system into the car's generic
computer monitoring bus, OBD-II;
a standard data interface on all cars built after 1996.
The practicality of the graphical displays
is secondary to the 'cool' factor. Generic automative computer monitoring software and hardware
is available, but they do not provide for eye-candy. We have done some initial prototype work on this idea, but have not yet decided if it is commercially viable.
An example of a computer hardware interface to the OBD-II port can be viewed and purchased at www.digimoto.com. Example computers and displays suited to in-car use are viewable on the www.mp3car.com/store website. Our product idea would be an integration of these types of components along with custom software.
Research and Development
We are always researching and experimenting with new
technologies and ideas. A few of our more interesting and recent R&D projects
are available in the links on the left of this page.
