Status Update

  • NASA annual review meeting in late October


  • Dave S. will send new parameter identification routine based on updated FEM
  • Upcoming parameter estimation flight tests
    • Chirps, 3-2-1-1 open loop at 23 m/s
  • STI
    • Conducted a system identification study and emailed to the sub-group
      • Used de-correlated inputs, transfer functions, and subspace identification
    • Still compares well with Dave’s model
    • Looked at SMI data for Wing Set 1, identified modes and sent a report
      • Saw a torsion mode, but it might the second based on the frequency
  • VT updated FEM to match mode shapes and frequencies with Wing Set 1 GVT


  • VT began designing LE surfaces and TE conformal mold line flaps
  • Aurora and UMN have converged on a mold design for the mAEWing2 wings
