Abstract:

After a brief summary of the history of RAE an outline is given of the Establishments facilities, including the guided weapon ranges which are currently being modernised. The scope and rationale of its research programme are illustrated by descriptions of a number of specific items night and all- weather operations, flight control of ASTOVL aircraft, applications of computational fluid dynamics to aircraft and gas turbines, advanced airframe materials, aim-point refinement for guided weapons, and remote sensing of the Earths surface from space. The use of assessment techniques in research planning and in support of the definition of operational requirements is then discussed and reference is made also to relationships with industry and to future trends in research.
