Consulting covers fixed wing aircraft flight testing for performance, stability and control, avionics and systems tests. Flight test areas include Avionics Systems Flight Testing, Aircraft Certification, Electro-Optical Systems, Digital Flight Control System Testing, Store Certification, as well as Handling Qualities evaluation using closed-loop tasks.
Publically available military specifications documents are extensively used (MIL-F-8785C, MIL-HDBK-1797, MIL-HDBK-244D, MIL-HDBK-1763, MIL-STD-3009, MIL-HDBK-516A, etc).
Special flight test consulting areas are the following:
- Testing in a Flight Simulation Environment: Flight simulation is used as a flight test tool for new concept designs, flight control system tests or for post-flight recreation and analysis. Flight simulation is also used in order to optimize the flight test planning, train and prepare the flight and ground crews for special tests.
- Advanced Data Reduction: In-house built data reduction routines cover and further expand all the classical and modern data reduction methods providing the highest degree of achievable accuracy.
