ACEAirbus Group3_arianegroup4_da_logotype_grisESAGifasMusée de l'Air et de l'Espace 

WP1 – Aerodynamics and Flight control

WP1 - Aérodynamique et Qualité de vol

The study will consider either a standalone MSV (Manned Suborbital Vehicle) or an airborne one, the carrier being an existing airplane. Conceive and predefine a suborbital vehicle by studying mainly aerodynamics and flight control aspects.


Address one of the following topics:

  1. Study of the aerodynamic effects on the wings, depending on the flight phase,

  2. Pre-sizing of the control surfaces and how to use them,

  3. Optimization of the trajectory.
