Abstract
The Mobility Systems Section (MSS) of the Defence Research Establishment Suffield (DRES), in support of unmanned air vehicle R&D for the Canadian Forces, are conducting research in the area of hardware-in-the-loop simulation. This research is essential in the development of flight algorithms for advanced high-speed, agile (supersonic) unmanned aerial vehicles. In support of these activities, DRES has established a long term technology thrust to develop cost-effective facilities that are suitable as flight qualification tools. The core of these facilities are the SIMulation FACility (SIMFAC) and the MOtion FACility (MOFAC), located at the DRES Building 15 Test Complex. The document details the work conducted by Atlantis Aerospace in support of DRES Systems Integration Group (SIG) efforts to increase the capability of the flight qualfication systems. The following tasks were addressed during this contract: a. Upgrading and evaluating of SIMFAC software and hardware. b. Investigation of the communication between SIMFAC and MOFAC, which would allow flight control R&D as well as the flight qualification activities, and further development of the computer control of MOFAC. c. Continued investigations, using SIMFAC, of a variety of signularity free flight attitude representation algorithms and strapdown inertial navigation system (INS) algorithms for use in MicroPilot.
