  • Aging Aircraft (.pdf)
    Corrosion and corrosion related fatigue of structural components threatens the readiness of military aircraft and greatly increases the cost of maintenance of virtually all legacy aircraft. Annual costs exceeding one billion dollars are currently incurred for inspection and maintenance by the US
  • Flight Performance of Fixed and Rotary Wing Aircraft
    Flight Performance of Fixed and Rotary Wing Aircraft. Presenting an unrivalled range of advanced flight performance models for both transport and military aircraft, this text details each element of aircraft performance so readers can use this book in the classroom and throughout their professional
  • Airbus builds a Military Airlifter
    A new, multirole transporter will replace aging heavylift aircraft in military fleets. The A400 military transport plane from Airbus will have four 11,000-shp turboprops, giving it enough power to take off from short, rough landing fields (under 3,000 ft), and still carry a 20-ton payload
  • Aircraft Liquid Cooling
    of more high-end embedded computing systems, the need for liquid cooling on jets, helicopters, unmanned aerial vehicles, and other types of military and commercial aircraft is increasing. By moving from air cooling to liquid cooling, engineers can eliminate thermal restrictions that might otherwise
  • Digital Cameras in Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) for Military and Commercial Uses
    An Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) is an aircraft that. flies without a human pilot onboard, controlled remotely. or flown autonomously via pre-programmed flight plans. or other automated guidance systems. Traditionally,. UAVs were largely deployed in military missions, but. are increasingly being
  • A century of progress in aircraft materials - Part 3 Composites
    Aircraft designers have gone from wood and fabric to metal and composites in the last 100 years. This second installment of a three-part look at the first 100 years of powered flight focuses on the materials used by aircraft pioneers and manufacturers. As always in engineering, the drive has been
  • Nanocrystalline Coatings Provide Hard Chrome Alternative
    Implementation of ESTCP-demonstrated. electrodeposited nanocrystalline cobalt-phosphorus(nCoP) coatings on military aircraft will eliminate environmental and worker safety concerns associated with hexavalent chromium used in DoD plating operations, and reduce operational costs.
  • Meeting Safety-Critical Requirements with MIL-STD-1553
    MIL-STD-1553, which has served as the primary command and control interconnect in military aircraft for more than 3 decades, is now being designed-in as the standard for next-generation commercial aircraft, thanks to its performance, reliability and safety.
