    Development and Implementation of an adaptive Payload System for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    Advanced Design Project (ADP)

    Unmanned Air Traffic is showing great promise for research and economy since many years now. But to enable routine operation of commercial drone applications Europe is missing a fundamental framework for regulative and traffic management purposes. Therefore, the SESAR Joint Undertaking called for several European projects that face the challenge to design a homogenous low level airspace concept. The goal of the so called U-Space is the implementation of new services and specific procedures to support the safe, efficient and secure integration of drones. In order to cope with future requirements this system will rely on a high level of digitalisation and automation of functions, e.g. in terms of weather forecast, flight planning, risk assessment or contingency management. To reach these goal, the FSR is conducting research together with several partners inside the Consortium IMPETUS, to deliver and experimentally validate various information service concepts. go

    Development of a display concept for the visualization of Prognostics- and Health Management information

    Masterthesis, Bachelorthesis, Advanced Design Project (ADP)

    The information about a system‘s future health state is of major importance in many technical applications as it directly relates to a system’s availability and performability. With the discipline of Prognostics and Health Management (PHM) there exists a novel approach to detect the current health state and predict the remaining useful lifetime (RUL). This information can then be used by different stakeholders (pilots, maintenance crew, fleet-operators) to support their decision making. go

    Adaptive fehlertolerante Regelung eines überaktuierten Flugsystems

    Masterthesis

    Many aircrafts are inherent over-actuated regarding their control signals. This can be advantageous especially in the context of unmanned aircrafts, where failures of certain actuator functions might occur in critical situations. In such cases, the redundant actuators can be used to fulfill the controller's objectives, thus increasing the overall operational safety. To test such methods new fault-tolerant control algorithms are developed at the Institute of Flight Systems and Automatic Control using the example of over-actuated flight systems. go

    Analyse und strukturvariable Regelung eines hybriden unbemanntes Luftfahrzeugs

    Masterthesis

    Small UAVs already play an important role in search and rescue missions, while their area of application is subject to steady growth. Of special interest are innovative hybrid configurations. These are fixed-wing pusher UAVs with four additional rotors, which allows for vertical take-off and landing (VTOL-UAV) as well as covering large distances by performing energy efficient aerodynamic cruise flight. To increase the operational safety new fault-tolerant control algorithms against (multiple) actuator and sensor failures are developed and tested at the Institute of Flight Systems and Automatic Control (FSR) using the example of hybrid UAVs. go

    (Bachelor-)/Masterthesen in den Bereichen Modellbildung, Datenanalysen und Fuel-Bewertung von Flugzeugen ab sofort zu vergeben!!!

    Masterthesis, Bachelorthesis

    In the field of artificial intelligence, the FSR deals with the use of data-based machine learning and big data technologies on data records from flight operations. For example, models for the diagnosis and prognosis of fuel consumption are developed. Thus, deviations between planning and real data as well as influences on the operational flight execution can be analyzed. In addition, maintenance measures can be evaluated economically. go

    Konzipierung eines Hardware-in-the-Loop-Prüfstands für ein hybrides unbemanntes Luftfahrzeug

    Advanced Design Project (ADP)

    Small unmanned aircrafts are already playing an important role in search and rescue missions, while the area of research is constantly growing. The configuration of interest is a fixed wing aircraft with pusher propulsion, which is able to vertically take-off and land by using four additional rotors (VTOL-UAV). To increase the operational safety new fault-tolerant control algorithms against actuator and sensor failures are developed and tested at the Institute of Flight Systems and Automatic Control (FSR). To evaluate the developed algorithms a hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) test rig should be designed. go

    Entwicklung von Filteralgorithmen für Flugdaten ausgewählter Flugzeugmuster in der Performanz-Analyse

    Masterthesis

    Flugdaten, und deren gezielter, effizienter Einsatz, gewinnen signifikant an Bedeutung. Die Fokussierung auf relevante Daten der Datenmasse findet gegenwärtig über statische Filter statt. Diese Daten aus dem Flugbetrieb verarbeiten Aircraft Operator und MRO-Betriebe für die Analyse von Performanz der Flotte und für die Planung sowie den gezielten Einsatz von Wartungs- und Instandhaltungsmaßnahmen.

    Zukünftig werden vermehrt moderne Algorithmen (künstlich intelligente oder modifizierte physikalisch basierte) für die Analyse der Daten etabliert. Wie können relevante Flugdaten identifiziert, der Fokus auf relevante Flugdaten gelegt und ein hoher Nutzen für Operator und MRO-Betrieb sicher gestellt werden? go

    Untersuchung von Sensorfehlern und ihrem Einfluss auf datenbasierte Performanz-Bewertung von Flugzeugen

    Masterthesis

    In der Luftfahrtindustrie werden vermehrt Sensoren verbaut und Sensordaten für Zustandsbewertungen genutzt. Im vorgestellten Fall der Luftfahrtforschung ist die Verarbeitung von Flugdaten für die Flotten-Performanz-Bewertung von großer Bedeutung. Güte und Vertrauenswürdigkeit physikalisch basierter Simulationsmodelle und Algorithmen werden durch Sensorfehler verschlechtert.

    Das Erfassen der Sensordynamiken und die Identifizierung sowie Modellierung von Sensorfehlern soll die Güte und Vertrauenswürdigkeit dieser Algorithmen positiv beeinflussen. Die Betrachtung der Sensorfehler und die Modifikation der Flugdaten kann einen entscheidenden Beitrag zur Performanz-Bewertung liefern. In Zuge dessen ist der gezielte Einsatz von Treibstoffeffizienz- sowie Wartungs- und Instandhaltungsmaßnahmen möglich. go

    Voruntersuchungen zu Potentialen der In-Flight Performanz-Bewertung von Flugzeugen im Flugsimulator

    Masterthesis

    Im Zuge der Digitalisierung des Luftfahrtsektors werden datenbasierte Applikationen entwickelt, die für Forschung und Industrie einen großen Nutzen aufbringen. Vornehmlich Themengebiete wie die prädizierte Wartung und Instandhaltung für einen MRO Betrieb oder der effiziente Einsatz der Flugzeugflotte eines Aircraft Operators werden als Ziele verfolgt. Dabei ist eine live Übertragung der Daten eines Flugzeugs während des Fluges möglich, die für die Weiterverarbeitung für die dynamische Planbarkeit im Flugbetrieb umgesetzt wird.

    In Kombination mit der Entwicklung von Algorithmen zur Performanz-Bewertung eines Flugzeuges wird im Rahmen der Masterthesis die Frage gestellt, wie der operative Flugbetrieb durch eine Just-In-Time Auswertung von Flugdaten positiv beeinflusst werden kann.
