Aerospace Research

Aircraft aerodynamics research and analysis

Included within this category are large-transport, fighter, general-aviation and hypersonic vehicles. We provide performance, stability and control, and handling qualities assessments and predictions.

 

Aircraft stall departure/spin resistance research, analysis and design

We have been involved in a number of testing and development studies to understand and improve the stall departure/spin resistance of various aircraft configurations, including refinement of test techniques to measure dynamic stability and rotary derivatives.

 

Aircraft model flight-testing, tracking, telemetry and control systems

ViGYAN provides electronics, data acquisition, and aeronautical engineering to support flight tests of NASA models. We also have organized an in-house unit to acquire flight test data on small aircraft and unmanned vehicles.

Magenn Power Inc., has created the Magenn Air Rotor System, an inexpensive, lighter-than-air, tethered wind turbine that generates electrical energy by rotating about a horizontal axis in response to active airflow at 60 to 1,000 feet in altitude.

Research facility control systems and data acquisition systems

We have implemented wind tunnel control systems in both the ViGYAN Low Speed Wind Tunnel, as well as most of the facilities at NASA Langley Research Center. Systems include tunnel control, model attitude and control, high-pressure air pressure/temperature/flow-rate control, and various safety protocols.
