Development of a subscale flight testing platform for a generic future fighter
2010 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
One branch of the current research in aircraft design at Linköping University is focused on fast concept evaluation in early design stages. This covers multidisciplinary optimization using tools of different level of complexity and low-cost subscale flight testing. In some cases a flight test will provide more answers than several computations ever could. In order to achieve this goal a methodology is required to allow fast creation of subscale flying concepts and to obtain as much reliable information as possible from the tests. The methodology is currently being developed. One important part of it is the scaling methodology and the imposed requirements on manufacturing. The present paper presents the latest subscale demonstrator from Linköping University that has been built as part of the study initiated by the Swedish Material Board on a Generic Future Fighter aircraft.
