The Applied Vehicle Panel (AVT) of the NATO Science and Technology Organization (STO) is organizing a Specialists’ Meeting (RSM) on Multi-disciplinary design approaches and performance assessment of future combat aircraft. The meeting is open to NATO Nations and two Enhanced Opportunity Partners: Australia and Sweden. The Specialists’ Meeting is classified as NATO UNCLASSIFIED OPEN TO AUSTRALIA and SWEDEN. The meeting will be held in Quebec City, Canada during the Spring 2020 AVT Panel Business Meeting Week, 27 – 28 April 2020.
The three day RSM is planned to have approximately 24 papers, several of which will be invited. In addition, the Specialists’ Meeting is open for poster presentations given during the Panel Business Meeting Week in parallel to the oral paper presentations. It is as well open to static displays as desired. Full Meeting Proceedings will be published on the CSO website: www.cso.nato.int.
General Scope and Meeting Objectives
The intention of the RSM is to share and expand the knowledge of design and performance prediction capabilities of future agile combat fighter aircraft within the NATO community. The military relevance is given by the necessity to provide a common knowledge to design and assessment of the performance of current and future air vehicles. The related RTG AVT-251 was able to consolidate a certain group of NATO nations and was able to show the capabilities of the current STO research community. To be able to convey this knowledge base into the outside community such as procurement agencies and industry, a common Specialists’ Meeting is a valid format. Furthermore, the STO community needs feedback from outside to address technological gaps for future activities. The main objectives are:
- Provide a spectrum of design aspects and overall design experiences for future combat NATO military aircraft and provide vital links between disciplines.
- Demonstrate the performance of existing design methods with respect to applicability and reliability.
- Identify future and progressive aircraft design requirements and identify the necessary method developments to solve aerodynamic, S&C, structural etc. characteristics challenges.
- Discuss design strategies using advanced design tools like multi-fidelity methods or reduced order modelling (ROM).
Specialists’ Meeting Topics
The RSM will cover the following areas:
- Conceptual and preliminary design of future combat military aircraft
- Aerodynamic design, CFD and Multi-Fidelity methods
- Control device and control concept design
- Propulsion integration
- Structure design and aeroelastic assessment
- Signature aspects and design concepts
- Flight mechanics analyses and control systems
Emphasis will be placed on several mandatory aspects like:
- Demonstration on application
- Military impact and exploitation
- Multi-Disciplinary aspect
Monday Evening Reception
Our Canadian host has organized a welcoming evening reception that will take place on Monday, 27 April, 17:45hrs - 21:00hrs, in the Urban Space of the Quebec City Convention Centre. The Reception is free of charge and all PBM participants are cordially invited to take part.
The dress code for the reception is business casual. The reception will offer a tasting of local delicacies, after which the participants may then want to explore one of the many restaurant offerings in the downtown area.
Please note that places are limited to 250 participants and will be granted on a first come, first serve basis.
