    Student Assistant – Support for the international summer school “German Engineering” in the field of flight mechanics

    TU Darmstadt offers an international summer school for American and Australian students titled „German Engineering“ in June 2018. As part of this summer course, the Institute of Flight Systems and Automatic Control (FSR) will offer a course on flight mechanics. Over two days, students will learn the basic concepts of flight mechanics, flight dynamics and flight performance assessments. To support this course, FSR is now offering a student job.

    Student Assistant – Visualizations with Respect to a Project Report

    Future air traffic will shift to trajectory based operations, where flight plans are tied to specific temporal constraints. At FSR an algorithm was developed that optimizes the altitude and speed profile of a flight with respect to weather and mentioned temporal constraints. The algorithm is designed to support the flight execution. The algorithm will be evaluated by simulating flights on many different times. The applicant will support the automated data processing and visualization of the results.

    Hilfswissenschaftlicher Mitarbeiter (m/w) zur Programmierung in Excel Visual Basic (VBA) für Verwaltungsprozesse gesucht

    Für interne Verwaltungsprozesse im Bereich der Inventarverwaltung werden am Institut für Flugsysteme und Regelungstechnik Listen in Excel geführt. Der Prozess der Inventarverwaltung soll optimiert werden. Dabei müssen unterschiedliche Listen aggregiert und erweitert werden. Zur Automatisierung der zukünftigen Prozesse sind Skripte in Excel mittels Visual Basic für Applikationen (VBA) zu erstellen.

    Advanced Research Project: Entwicklung eines Konzepts zur dynamischen Risikobewertung von UAV-Flugmissionen

    ARP in the Field of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    Um die sichere Integration unbemannter Flugzeuge (UAVs) in den Luftraum zu erleichtern, wird von den Luftfahrtbehörden eine missionsspezifische Risikobewertung (Specific Operations Risk Assessment) angestrebt. Dabei wird für jede Flugmission das individuelle Risiko basierend auf den Fähigkeiten des UAVs, der Beschaffenheit der Flugroute sowie weiteren Faktoren bestimmt.

    Advanced Research Project: Design und Durchführung einer Versuchsreihe zur Messung von Vigilanz im zukünftigen Cockpit

    ARP in the Field of Future Cockpit Design

    At the Institute of Flight Systems and Control (FSR) and in cooperation with industry, future cockpit concepts are researched. Against the background of so-called Reduced Crew Operations as well as increasing automation, tasks and objectives of future pilots will change fundamentally compared to today – the pilot becomes a mission manager. This ARP work contributes to the evaluation of the developed concepts. The goal is to develop, implement and evaluate an experimental design for vigilance measurements in FSR’s flight simulator.

    Be Boulder!

    BeBoulder

    Exchange Program with the University of Colorado Boulder

    In cooperation with our partner Jeppesen we offer students from the department of mechanical engineering with focus on aviation the opportunity to go abroad. Included are two trimesters at the University of Colorado at Boulder as well as an internship with Jeppesen in Denver. Applications must be due by November 30th, 2017, and should be sent to the MechCenter. A general information session on international exchange programs offered by the department of engineering will be held on October 25th, at 18.00 in L4|02-201. Additionally we offer a specific information session on the Boulder exchange program on Friday, November 10h, at 15.00 in L1|01-562K.

    Student Assistant for carrying out experiments on an actuator test rig

    Das Institut für Flugsysteme und Regelungstechnik baut einen Prüfstand zur Untersuchung von elektromechanischen Aktuatoren auf. Über eine mechanische Strecke ist ein Lastaktuator integriert, welcher die Aufbringung dynamischer Lastprofile auf den Prüfling ermöglicht. Die integrierte Sensorik bildet den Grundstein für die Regelung und Überwachung der Versuche.

    Für den Betrieb des Prüfstands kommt Hardware von National Instruments zum Einsatz, weshalb die Versuchsdurchführung und Datenerfassung über LabVIEW implementiert wird. Eine spätere Verarbeitung der Daten findet in MATLAB/Simulink statt.
