Flight mechanics

  • 1 Free flight under tension

    If there is a question of a wind instrument in the Sacso project, it is not a matter of music but of flight mechanics and aerodynamics... The model's flight mechanics parameters (positions, velocities, accelerations) are reconstructed from data internal to the model (acceleration and speed of rotation measurements), optical flight path tracking and model attitudes, the cable lengths
  • 2 ONERA's preparations for Ariane 6 are underway

    ONERA's expertise in the understanding of complex phenomena in the fields of solid and liquid propulsion, aerodynamics, aerothermics, acoustics and flight mechanics is strong with the definition of launcher control laws. ONERA has more recently contributed to the preparation of the future Ariane 6, in an earlier PPH version ("Powder", "Powder" and" Hydrogen" propulsion)
  • 3 ONERA lifts the veil on 70 years of its history: 1996 to the present day - A period of major changes

    In addition, to meet the needs of the Armée de l'Air, ONERA created in 1992 a center in Salon de Provence, devoted to research and teaching activities in the fields of radar, optronics and flight mechanics. M88 engine of the Rafale © ONERA
