Piloted simulation in support of flight control design and clearance
Published May 08, 2002 by Royal Aeronautical Society in United Kingdom
This paper presents an overview of the simulation process and technology developments carried out by BAE SYSTEMS, in support of aircraft flight control research and development. The paper summarizes the design and control challenges of various aircraft projects and how piloted simulation has contributed to the development and clearance of these aircraft. The flight simulator has become an integral part of an overall simulation- based design process and the simulator systems' requirements have been driven by a need to adapt to new engineering tools, processes and cultures. The paper covers a number of these new processes and technology developments in the BAE SYSTEMS simulation facilities at Warton, and how they have improved the effectiveness of the flight simulator in its ability to reduce the overall cost and time-scale of engineering development.
