Aerospace System Identification

  • Revolutionizing Drone Safety and Performance

    • Status: Active
    • From September 2016 until February 2026

    The aim of this research project is to fundamentally improve the safety of drones by developing a new safe envelope predictive (SENCE) flight control system. The goa...

  • Aircraft Stall Model Identification

    • Status: Active
    • Since August 2015

    This project focuses on developing dynamic models of aircraft in the stall and post-stall regime from flight data obtained with our Cessna Citation II laboratory air...

  • Flight Envelope Prediction & Damaged Aircraft Modelling

    • Status: Active
    • Since September 2015

    Currently, Loss of Control (LOC) is the primary cause of fatal accidents in aviation, accounting for 44% of all fatalities between 2005 and 2015. LOC is the result o...

  • Flapping Wing Model Identification

    • Status: Active
    • Since July 2016

    Flapping-wing Micro Air Vehicles (FWMAVs) are bio-inspired flying robots mimicking small birds and insects. Compared to drones with rotors (e.g. quadrotors), flappin...

  • Satellite Aerodynamic Model Identification

    • Status: Completed
    • From January 2014 until April 2019

    This project is run in collaboration with ESA and the TU-Delft Astrodynamics group. The objective of this research project is to investigate the use of angular accel...

  • Inertial Sensor Calibration and Modeling

    • Status: Completed
    • From June 2012 until October 2018

    Inertial sensors are essential components of inertial navigation systems and automatic flight control systems. They directly or indirectly measure linear acceleratio...
