Status Update


  • Sköll with Wing Set 1
    • Flight 12 captured open-loop chirp data at 27 m/s
    • Flight 13 found open-loop flutter at 30 m/s
      • Wing Set 1 is likely a loss, the Sköll center-body can be repaired
    • Updated FEM is matching mode shapes from GVT, asymmetry is causing some slight differences in mode shape and frequencies
  • Hati with Wing Set 2 is in integration
    • Anticipated to be complete 8/28
    • GVT scheduled 8/29 and 8/30
      • Should change the excitation force point for better identification of torsion modes


  • VT working on defining material properties for the sandwich panel
  • Nearly complete with analysis module part of the shape optimization
