Trajectory optimization is an essential part of space plane mission design. One important aspect of trajectory optimization for re-entry vehicles is to minimize the total heat load at the surface when it returns and the heat flux should remain below certain limit, meanwhile, the vehicle should land at the desired point. The methods used for re...

The long-haul flights of airlines are impacted by the en-route wind fields. Flights on the same route with different directions may have significantly different flight performances. It may benefit to airlines in terms of fuel cost and on-time performance if the optimal long-haul routes are able to plan. However, the wind direction and strength...

Currently, only one Standard Instrument Departure (SID) track and one flight procedure is used per runway departure fix combination. In contrast to tailored arrivals, the potential benefit of tailored departures has been left relatively undiscovered. The research objective is to quantify the potential benefit of tailored SID-s and profile...

A tool is developed that is able to optimize the trajectories of multiple aircraft that fly in formation in order to obtain the minimum total fuel consumption. Several experiments are conducted to investigate the benefits of formation flight for commercial aircraft. Finally, also the influences of wind and delay on the trajectories of the...

The role of traditional entry guidance systems is to ensure that the vehicle is brought from a nominal entry interface point (EIP) to the neighborhood of a designated landing site at an acceptable energy state. Such systems are designed in such a way that the landing site can be safely reached even if off-nominal conditions are present at the...

Tilt-rotor aircraft combine the helicopter’s benefit of VTOL capability and the flight performance that turboprops possess on range, speed and endurance. Tilt-rotor aircraft have the potential to decrease airport congestion and average flight delay in passenger transportation, while benefits are numerous in i.e. search and rescue, disaster...
