    0930-0945   Dantec Dynamics, Inc
    New Developments and Improvements of Measurement Technology for Aerodynamics and Material Testing
    Cliff Weissman

    The understanding and characterization of fluid and particle dynamics and material testing is crucial for many applications in the aerospace industry. An overview of a few of the latest developments in advanced measurement techniques from Dantec Dynamics are presented with emphasis on aeronautic R&D applications.


    Tools for Embedded Software Development and Validation

    Noal Garber, Account Manager

    The presentation will describe dSPACE tool-chain for model-based design, development and testing of embedded software. dSPACE tools for Ra[id Controls Prototyping including solutions for simulation of Aerospace communication busses, automatic code generation tool for efficient systems will be presented. The presentation will include examples of successful applications currently in flight developed using dSPACE systems.


    Concord Lift

    Stephen Funck

    Concord Lift, a thought experiment. Is it possible to have very heavy lift at very low cost per ton mile? Concord Lift is a unique configuration that opens the way to previously unreachable capabilities.

    Wind Tunnel Unsteady Aerodynamic Load Measurement Measurement of static loads is conventionally performed using a combination of strain gage measurements. For the case of an unsteady loading environment with energy content in the same frequency band as structural modes, measurements can be significantly corrupted. M4 Engineering has developed a product to accurately measure such unsteady loads.
