Flight Dynamics

  • 1 Drones become intelligent

    The Systems Control and Flight Dynamics (DCSD) Department's team at Onera also simulated the deck landing of a helicopter drone on a ship by organizing a meeting between the helicopter and a virtual moving point (not having a boat for testing the deck landing under realconditions).as facile de démontrer les capacités du drone autonome!
  • 2 Drones: en route for autonomy

    "Since we don't know the details of these upcoming regulations, we started with a scenario that we hoped would be as close as possible to the final texts, "notes Christel Seguin, research engineer at Onera's Systems Control and Flight Dynamics department. While there are three main aspects to this question- aircraft, pilot and aircraft / pilot / ATC interactions- the project team will focus on the drone itself and the innovative avionics systems required
  • 3 Flash Vibration Test Campaigns for the A350 XWB

    The A350 made its maiden flight on the eve of the Paris Air Show 2013. In May, Onera's team of specialists was on deck day and night to pass the vibration tests on the ground in record time. Airbus was thus reassured that the plane was ready for its first flight... This is an essential stage in the certification process for the first flight of the A350XWB
  • 4 Modeling of the Earth's radiation belts

    Its dynamics are characterized by time scales ranging from a few minutes to one solar cycle (11 years)... This gives them precious help in defining the specification models of future satellites as well as diagnostic tools for anomalies in flight
  • 5 The droplet and the engine

    Laser techniques are used to measure the dynamics of the whole process.[Photo Antoine Gonin... In other words, it isn't very easy to catch them mid- flight!... Digital simulation of the dynamics of the evaporation of a droplet in a jet of mono-dispersed droplets
  • 6 ONERA-M6 Wing, Star of CFD

    The M6 arrow shaped wing was designed by Bernard Monnerie and his aerodynamicist colleagues at Onera in 1972, within the framework of cooperation within the AGARD 2, to serve as experimental support in studies of three-dimensional flows at transonic speeds and high Reynolds numbers 5 (conditions representative of the actual flight of military and civilian aircraft)
  • 7 1963 à 1983 - The expansion

    ONERA, which was already a centre of reference in its field, would play a leading role in the dynamics of this period... It was crucial to define the shape of the wings, the engine air intakes, the propelling nozzles, low-speed flight, and the study of the ground effect on landing
