Background

The intention of the RSM is to share and expand the knowledge of design and performance prediction capabilities of future agile combat fighter aircraft within the NATO community. The military relevance is given by the necessity to provide a common knowledge to design and assess the performance of current and future air vehicles. The related RTG AVT-251 was able to consolidate a certain group of NATO nations and was able to show the capabilities of the current STO research community. To be able to convey this knowledge base into the outside community such as procurement agencies and industry, a common Specialists’ Meeting is a valid format. Furthermore, the STO community needs feedback from outside to address technological gaps for future activities.

Objectives

The objective of the RSM is to bring together a spectrum of design aspects and overall design experiences for effective, agile NATO aerial vehicles. The goal is to demonstrate the performance of existing design methods with respect to applicability and reliability. Requirements for further design and design method developments should be discussed as well as design strategies using advanced design tools like multi-fidelity methods or reduced order modelling (ROM). The scientific topics which are intended to address are Preliminary and conceptional design of military effective, agile aircraft, Aerodynamic design using CFD and Multi-Fidelity methods, Control device and control concept design, Engine design and integration, Structure design and aeroelastic assessment, Signature evaluation and design concepts and Flight mechanics analyses and control systems.
