The design of innovative flight control and aircraft on-board systems is the focus of aviation research at the Institute. The aim is to reduce weight by actively reducing aircraft structural loads and improving the (semi-)autonomous operation of manned and unmanned aircraft. Aircraft energy systems are also being further developed, evaluated and optimised to reduce fuel consumption.
