A decision support tool developed by the Institute of Aerospace Technologies as part of the ACROSS research project has just completed two weeks of pilot evaluations at the flight simulation facilities of the Dutch national aerospace research laboratory (NLR). The tool was evaluated by 10 crews of commercial airline pilots with a wide range of flying experience. The evaluations were carried out on the NLR GRACE full-flight simulator after several months of collaborative integration, validation and testing by members of staff of the IAT and NLR. The results of these evaluations are now being analysed by the IAT and the conclusions will be published as part of the final assessment report which will be completed later on this year.

Meeting with Latécoère and ONERA

The Institute of Aerospace Technologies recently had a workshop with representatives from Latécoère and ONERA. Latécoère is a French aircraft company which works closely with the major aircraft manufacturers (such as Airbus and Boeing) and airlines and specialises in areas including avionics racks, test benches, harnesses and sensors. On the other hand, ONERA is the French aeronautics, space and defense research lab. The IAT has worked with both of these entities in past research projects, including ALICIA.

IAT Scholarship for Master of Science

Applications for the scholarship are invited to support full-time studies in Aerospace within the Institute of Aerospace Technologies leading to the award of the degree of Master of Science in Aerospace (by research).
