STELAR is a project planned for four years from 2020/21 for the development of an automatic flight control system for energy-optimised flight under consideration of atmospheric conditions as part of the Aeronautical Research Programme (LUFO VI).
It is planned to create a modular simulation environment based on models of the aerodynamics and propulsion system. This simulation environment will be used to develop a model-based, energyoptimized and thus resource-saving control system for general aviation.
Together with a planned cockpit interface development at the TU-Berlin and a planned hardware-in-the-loop flight simulation test the system shall be validated.
Project Duration: 05/2020 – 05/2022
