The aviation industry is at the cutting edge of many new technologies. The development of cost efficient, user friendly, environmental friendly, and safe aircraft requires continuous research, simulation, development, integration and test efforts in a wide area of technical disciplines. This applies to manned civil and military aircraft, fixed and rotary wing, and for all types of unmanned / remotely piloted aircraft systems.
