ART offers expert consulting support for the design and analysis of rotorcraft, helicopters, and other air vehicles. We have supported the aerospace industry since 1982 with a broad range of consulting services and we have performed design, analysis, and test and evaluation services for manufacturers and the U.S. government.
Stability and control
Aerodynamic and structural Loads
CFD/CSD coupled analysis
ART provides customized simulation models for interfacing with and testing avionics and flight control hardware. The integrated solution allows testing and refinement of hardware prior to installation on rotorcraft, helicopters, and other air vehicles.
Interface with existing hardware
ART offers integration support for interfacing our rotorcraft simulation models with our customers' training or research simulators. We customize our model interface and interface protocol based on the customer's needs.
Interface with new or existing hardware
Model development and customization
On-site integration support
Validation and QTG support
ART supports rotorcraft flight test programs and the post processing of flight test data. Both U.S. Army and U.S. Navy customers have used our FLIGHTLAB modeling and analysis tool to support rotorcraft flight testing and ART has developed unique software to simulate the standard flight test scenarios performed in evaluating rotorcraft. ART can use these scenarios with our flight dynamics models to simulate a complete rotorcraft flight test program, allowing the optimization of sensor types and locations, maneuvers, and flight conditions.
Define envelope of operation
Post process flight test data
ART provides expert support for flight reconstruction, often as part of a rotorcraft or helicopter accident investigation. We apply our models and known information about a particular flight in order to reconstruct the flight. Using the reconstructed flight, we can predict flight data that may be missing or not recorded.
Predict control positions for a known flight path
Reconstruct flight path
Simulate aircraft response to various malfunctions
