overall objectives
Overall Objectives

CASDE was set up at IIT Bombay in August 1998 for the following tasks.

  • Educational Programme
  • Awareness Creation
  • Transport Aircraft Studies
  • Integrated Modeling & Simulation Laboratory
  • System Level Studies
educational programme
Educational Programme
  • Focus was M.Tech. Specialization.
  • Existing syllabus abroad was Studied.
  • Aero. professionals, including Stuart Kramer of AFIT (Edu. Advisor of INCOSE), gave inputs.
  • Two batches of students have already passed out.
  • Projects are tailored towards problems of interest to industry.
  • Third Batch is to enter in July 2003.
  • Life Cycle Cost Model
  • MDO of AEW System
  • Maneuvre Load Control
  • Brake Management System
  • Hydraulic System Model
awareness creation
Awareness Creation
  • Mandate was to expose to Aero. industry, various activities of CASDE , through workshops, seminars, CEPs etc.
  • CASDE has conducted a large number of workshops and meetings in areas of SE education, Modelling & Simulation, MDO and MAV.
  • A number of invited lectures and CEPs in special areas e.g. Mechatronics, have also been given.
transport aircraft studies
Transport Aircraft Studies
  • CASDE invited industry professionals to decide on an area, in which it could play a significant role.
  • The strong design background available at IITB was considered an ideal input to take up MDO as its main focus.
  • Aeroelastic design optimization of aircraft wings.
  • Design optimization of a 3-d duct.
  • Formal framework for MDO studies.
integrated modelling simulation
Integrated Modelling/Simulation
  • Integrated Modelling & Simulation was stressed by experts as a backbone of System level studies.
  • CASDE focused on providing hardware, software & interface tools to enable real-time simulations of aerospace systems.
  • IMS Lab. of CASDE is equipped to carry out simulations requiring sensors, actuators, controllers & software.
  • A number of setups provide training in creating simulations.
system level studies
System Level Studies
  • CASDE selected Mini Aerial Vehicle to understand system level synthesis and integration issues.
  • This activity has also coincided with national effort on MAVs.
  • The focus was to characterize interactions and interfaces.
  • An instrumented aircraft of 3.5 Kg. class and a videography platform of 1.0 Kg. class have been successfully made.
  • Solar powered aircraft is developed for concept verification.
current status future plans
Current Status & Future Plans
  • CASDE is nearing completion of its Phase-I.
  • A proposal requesting additional funds for continuing it (in Phase-II) has been submitted to ARDB and a decision is awaited.
  • Continuation of M.Tech. specialization, with suitable revisions.
  • Pursuing of MDO with increased vigour, as an enabling design technology.
  • Development of Mini Autonomous Flying Vehicle as a model SE exercise.
concluding remarks
Concluding Remarks
  • All activities of CASDE are student oriented, who are its main strength also. Further, focus has been on training and addressing specific research issues related to system design.
  • CASDE has opened a number of informal channels for interaction with people working (or interested) in various activities. (e.g. SIG-MDO).
  • CASDE has not addressed many other aspects of SE (e.g. IPPD, Concurrent Engg. etc.) and welcomes the present initiative by NIAS.
  • CASDE would be happy to complement other efforts in this important area of Systems Engineering.
