Title: Vorticity State Estimation For Aeroelastic Control
Agency: NASA
Contract: NNX12CG09P
Award Amount: $125,000.00
 

Abstract:

Flight control, structural reliability, and efficiency depend critically on the ability to assess the time-accurate unsteady aerodynamic loads and moments for each lifting surface under nominal and adverse flow conditions. Tao Systems and California Institute of Technology propose to develop a flow control system that utilizes advanced sensors and a vorticity state estimator (VSE) to reach flow states unattainable without continuous control feedback. The flow control scheme enables manipulation of the vorticity state to achieve performance objectives, such as short take-off/landing through controlled aerodynamic lift at angles of attack near stall.
