Try library(raster); r <- stack(list.files(pattern="tif$", full.names=FALSE)) ## you can convert to sp/rgdal format if need be

comment Simulation of random flight paths for helicopters
The package adehabitatLT has a number of simm.[x] functions for simulating animal tracks. Also fwiw, the SpatioTemporal Task View lists packages with support for tracking data.

I would first point gdalinfo at one of the files, it may well be a GeoTIFF anyway

comment Manifold GIS Scripting/Queries — query a web page and scrape page source?
This might be relevant, but generally I wouldn't be using Manifold directly for the web scraping part. If you can get it working with Python I'd do it externally first before trying to run it inside Manifold itself, though that should also work. georeference.org/doc/a_flashy_demo_web_queries_and_kml.htm

comment Software for opening .img files
.img is not enough to identify a format, it is ambiguous at best. Note that some software ignore the extension,or only use it as part of the evidence, and some formats ship without an extension at all

comment Is there an R equivalent of NEAR in ESRI ArcGIS?
What nearest neighbour packages? kdtree in nabor is likely to be the most efficient, but if you need ellipsoid distances you can roll your own with spDistsN1 in sp.
