Advances in recent years has brought forth many feasible technologies which oer signif-icant design advantages over the traditional aircraft vehicle ight systems. These advanceshave brought about a need for the aircraft conceptual engineers to evaluate these newtechnologies so as to realize a realistic and optimized architecture which fulls all criti-cal disciplinary requirements. To evaluate these systems, it is necessary to use models ofcomplexity which are a degree higher than what is being used today. Quick developmentand evaluation of these models can be a hard task for an engineer to achieve consideringthe multidisciplinary nature of the systems. A collaborative eort in model developmentbetween various department is needed if the conceptual design is to be completed withinthe time frame. To facilitate a collaborative conceptual design a research project was for-malized at Linkoping university, which has led to the development of a tool named CAVE(Conceptual Aircraft Vehicle Engineering) which can be used to evaluate the architectureof aircraft systems. In this paper, CAVE as a conceptual design tool will be presented.
