The future of Aerospace Operations modeling and simulation requires the development of new technologies and concepts, and the capability to integrate complex systems to satisfy the needs of future aerospace operations. Presentations are solicited in Aerospace Modeling and Simulation. These sessions will provide a forum for international discussion and information on leading-edge research and development associated with insights of future concept elements and technologies in aerospace operations.
This technical track explores the advancements of portable drilling and fastening technologies; large aircraft assembly; advanced methods of assembly for structures including determinant assembly, jigless assembly, automated positioning, and moving assembly lines; human-machine interaction with automated fastening systems; fastening and joining of composite structures; and robotic applications in drilling, fastening.
The avionics industry has been working to the DO-254 standard for FPGAs, ASICs, PLDs and Hardware designs for systems, avionics LRUs and IMA hardware applications. There are many areas of this standard which are in flux due to the complexities of the technology as well as the changes in the certification policies in commercial and military programs.
This session will cover flight vehicle performance and sizing, conceptual/preliminary design, MDO, aero-propulsion integration, design education.
Single and dual-mode personal transportation vehicles, focusing on VTOL configurations, and driving & flying capabilities. Required technologies, alternative system configurations, designs under development, prototype hardware, and in-flight performance of remote controlled models and full size prototypes will be presented.
