Outline l.jpg

OUTLINE

  • T&E Overview

  • Helicopter/Ship Testing

  • Dynamic Interface Support Options

  • SoS Approach

  • Virtual Flight Test Support

  • Summary


T e overview l.jpg

T&E Overview

  • DoD Procurement Funds

  • Current Cost of Rotorcraft Testing

    • Becoming more expensive

    • May uncover problems late in acquisition cycle

  • Mission Rehearsal Training

    • OFT/WST Expensive

    • Far removed from battlefield site

  • Acquisition & Mishap Investigations

    • Not integrated with flight testing


T e emphasis l.jpg

T&E Emphasis

  • Past – Cost and Cycle Time

  • Current –Interoperability & SoS

    • Interoperability

      • The ability of systems to provide services to and accept services from other systems

      • DoD 5000 series requires that all systems must be designed and tested to ensure interoperability

    • System-of-Systems (SoS)

      • A system working with a group of other systems or sub-systems in a seamless environment


T e options l.jpg

T&E Options

  • Business as usual - Conventional T&E

    • Introduction of personal computer in the 1980’s

    • Introduction of the WWW in the 1990’s

    • Cost & Cycle Time Problems

  • Combine Conventional T&E and Virtual T&E using related technology options

    • Develop and validate a virtual capability to support and enhance conventional T&E


Land based testing l.jpg

Land-Based Testing

  • US NAVY Test Pilot School (Conventional T&E)

  • Helicopter Performance

    • Hover, Level Flight, Climbs & Descent, Engine Assessment, &Airspeed/Altimeter Calibration

  • Flying Qualities

    • Longitudinal, Lateral, & Directional Static & Dynamic Stability, Flight Control System, Rotor Characteristics & Open Loop Testing


T e environment control l.jpg

T&E Environment Control

  • Land-Based – Can Control

    • Use of highly instrumented aircraft

    • Test schedule

    • Repeat test as required

  • Ship-Based – Cannot Control

    • Instrumentation in fleet aircraft

    • Test schedule (Usually plan well in advance)

    • Ambient winds and sea-state

    • Number of repeat tests required

Us navy ships l.jpg

US Navy Ships

USN = Approximately 300 total ships

4 aircraft carrier classes ~ 13 ships

5 surface combatant classes ~ 141 ships

4 amphibious ship classes ~ 36 ships

20 support ship classes ~ 85 ships

9 non-helo capable classes ~ 40 ships

(+41 USCG cutters in wartime)
