Abstract:

Tbe application of active control technologies ACT has a potential to enhance the operational performance capabilities of aircraft. In particular the introduction of digital computers with todays processing power allows to think about more and more complex andor unconventional control schemes for more efficient operation of aircraft. For the final validation and verification of new approaches the flight test is the ultimate test for concept demonstration under real world conditions. For this purpose DLR uses its flying testbed ATTAS Advanced Technologies Testing Aircraft System which is ideally suited due to its unique configuration. ATTAS is configured to meet the requirements of a variety of applications by freely progammable functions and interface capabilities to link customer soft- and hardware. This paper summarises the recent and Current projects and research activities relevant for ACT in which flight testing using ATTAS is an important factor.
