  • 1 The results of the SWAFEA study are published

    The final report of the European project Swafea, on the feasibility and effects of introducing alternative fuels in aviation, is available. pThe European project Swafea, on the feasibility and effects of introducing alternative fuels in aviation, was conducted under ONERA management with 19 European industrial partners (Airbus, Rolls-Royce, Snecma, Shell, Air France, etc.) and research partners (IFP-EN, DLR, WUR, etc).br / br / The preliminary results of the study were presented and discussed with the various participating parties in February 2011, during the international conference organised in Toulouse
  • 2 Nicetrip test campaign in S1MA wind tunnel

    Testing of a European Tilt-rotor project (Nicetrip) in the large S1MA wind tunnel of ONERA... These tests were accomplished on a large-scale model as part of the European project NICETRIP, to study the technological feasibility of a civil tilt-rotor aircraft
  • 3 The great heats of Martian aerocapture

    End of the European project AEROFAST relating to Martian aerocapture... The purpose of the European project Aerofast, leaded by EADS Astrium Space Transportation, as part of preparation for future manned Martian missions, was the design of an inter-planetary transporter vehicle capable of placing a satellite in Martian orbit after atmospheric braking in a single pass
  • 4 Gust effect control: a European first at ONERA

    This is the result of years of work within the context of the European project Clean Sky JTI Smart Fixed Wing Aircraft. A veritable first in Europe in the transonic field, the recent closed-loop control tests are an important step in the demonstration of gust load alleviation: alleviations on the order of 70 % were achieved for the response level of the model's first aeroelastic mode
  • 5 Testing of a the NICETRIP convertible aircraft project in ONERA?s large wind tunnel S1MA

    These tests, performed on a large scale model, are part of the European project NICETRIP, of which the purpose is to study the technological feasibility of a civilian convertible aircraft. Future projects should allow a flight demonstrator to be made in Europe
  • 6 Qualification of a new long-range wind lidar

    This action took place within the context of the European project UFO (UltraFast wind sensOrs), coordinated by Thales Air System, whose objective is to promote the development of technological innovations that could reduce the danger of wake vortices and wind shear over airports. The campaign was aimed at validating the performance, over a 10 km radius, of a new wind speed and turbulence mapping lidar in an airport environment
  • 7 Flow detachment in hydrodynamic water tunnel

    This experimental study takes place in the framework of DESider European project][. Detail of the sloping region of the bump used to cause the flow detachment
