FSD - Chair of Flight System Dynamics
Head of the Institute
Univ.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. Dieter Moormann
Fields of Study
Transportation Engineering (Aerospace Engineering)
Flight Mechanics, Automatic Flight Control, Flight Guidance, Spaceflight Dynamics, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, Autonomy
Main research of the institute is on design and evaluation of flight system dynamics, especially of unconventional and unmanned aerial vehicles:
- determination of flight mechanical characteristics by experiments with full-scale aircraft and with scaled models in wind tunnel and free-flight
- model building and simulation of flight dynamics and system dynamics including human pilot and operator
- optimization of flight control, flight guidance, mission control and automation towards autonomy
- development and design of system dynamics concepts for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) / unmanned aerial systems (UAS)
Facilities: Low-speed wind tunnel, Training-simulator, Research-simulator, Free-flight laboratory, Electronic and mechanical laboratory.
The Institute of Flight System Dynamics offers different lectures and exercises to the topics Flight Mechanics (Flight Dynamics, Flight Control, Flight Guidance, Flight Mechanics Laboratory, Simulator-based Flight Training, Flight Mechanical Design of a Micro Aerial Vehicles), Spaceflight Dynamics and also a Colloquium on Aerospace related topics.
