Abstract
DynASTOL® takes advantage of a natural, unsteady aerodynamic phenomenon that is used routinely by birds during takeoff and landing. To date however, the engineering tools that would allow it to be applied to aircraft landings have not been available, primarily due to a lack of in-depth understanding of the phenomenon. By the conclusion of this proposed SBIR Phase II project, AEREON will have demonstrated that the phenomenon is well understood, and that initial engineering tools have been developed that will allow DynASTOL® technology to be applied to landing aircraft. This will allow significant reductions of takeoff and landing ground rolls, and/or the energy/power requirements for catapult and/or arresting gear. Such a new capability can also be used to reduce or eliminate the weight and cost of high-lift devices. AEREON envisions transition of DynASTOL® technology to military and commercial aircraft design engineers.
