Abstract [en]

Remotely piloted scaled models not only serve as convenient low-risk flying test-beds but also can provide useful data and increase confidence in an eventual full-scale design. Nevertheless, performing advanced flight tests in a safe and cost-effective manner is often a challenge for organizations with limited resources. A typical scenario is testing within visual line-of-sight at very low altitude, a type of operation that offers major cost advantages at the expense of a reduced available airspace. This paper describes some of the authors' work towards efficient performance evaluation and system identification of fixed-wing, remotely piloted aircraft under these challenging conditions. Results show that certain techniques, manoeuvre automation, and platform-optimised multisine input signals can improve the flight test efficiency and the modelling process. It is also probable that some of the benefits observed here could be extrapolated to flight testing beyond visual line-of-sight or even to full-scale flight testing.
