Flight Control


STEMME S15 Flugversuchsträger aus den Projekten LAPAZ und LAPAZ II

MCAS (Model Check Methodology for Avionic Software) is a joint research project to design a verification process for the model-based development of safety-critical avionics software. The project is supported by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) as part of the Central Innovation Program for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (ZIM). more to: MCAS

Automatic Formation Flight

Formationsflug von Vögeln

„Automatic Formation Flight“ is a research project that is funded by the German Research Foundation. The goal is to develop an automatic flight control system that enables an aircraft to save fuel by flying in the vortex upwash generated by a leading aircraft. more to: Automatic Formation Flight



The project „nxControl“ will develop a new control command system for longitudinal acceleration (nx command) using thrust and speedbrakes in flight as well as thrust reverser and brakes on ground, improving flight path control in manual flight. The project is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). The interdisciplinary project focuses on both the technical and the psychological aspects of a new control system. Therefore the chair of Flight Mechanics, Flight Control and Aeroelasticity (FMRA) will design the controller and the chair of Work, Engineering and Organizational Psychology (AIO) will develop the human machine interface and analyze the impact of the new control system on pilot workload. The whole command system will be tested and verified using the research simulator SEPHIR. more to: nxControl

Project AlphaLink


At Project AlphaLink, a novel aircraft concept for so-called High-Altitude Platforms (HAP) is examined under flight mechanical and flight control aspects. In this concept, several individual aircraft form an aircraft formation with a large wingspan. They are coupled to each other using joints at the wing tips. Due to the large wingspan, the induced drag is significantly reduced. Since the joints do not transfer any bending moments, this concept has a significant advantage compared to conventional concepts with a continuous wing. more to: Project AlphaLink


Arbeit am Versuchsträger

The student project IFSys develops an UAS (Unmanned Aerial System). The objective is to improve the teaching by combinating theory and practice. more to: IFSys



Terminated Projects


STEMME S6 beim Erstflug im November 2006

LAPAZ is a three and a half year (01.01.2007 - 31.03.2010) project funded by the German National Aviation Research Program (LUFO IV) the objective is the design of an automatic flight control system for utility aircraft. more to: LAPAZ I



LAPAZ II is a two and a half year (01.10.2010 - 31.03.2013) project funded by the German National Aviation Research Program (LUFO IV). The objective is to develop and demonstrate automatic landing and take off function as well as a gust load alleviation function for utility aircraft. more to: LAPAZ II
