Defense Applications

The key to AdvAero’s value in the defense sector is the application of our unique combination of experience, independence, tools and methods to optimize our customers’ programs and reduce their risk in a completely open manner.

Training

  • Expert training with practical lessons learned and hands-on content in:
    • Flight test and flight test engineering
    • Hardware, software and flight test certification
    • Application of civil certification processes
  • Useful to help fill Customer expertise gaps
  • Standard courses and customized courses
  • On-Site or in-house

Prototype Evaluation

  • AdvAero’s unique “Come As You Are” concept helps Customers economically and rapidly evaluate prototypes technologies in a representative and comprehensive environment using AdvAero’s own research simulator and Piaggio Avanti Flying Avionics Test Bed.
  • Allows for very early evaluation of prototypes to obtain objective feedback on technology functionality in an integrated environment (ATC, Pilot, other aircraft, other avionics)
  • Makes TRL 2 and higher technologies appear as TRL 8
  • Does not require costly aircraft modifications (no holes, no cables, no flight ready hardware required)

Demonstration

  • AdvAero’s unique “Come As You Are” concept helps Customers economically and rapidly demonstrate prototype technologies in a representative and comprehensive environment.
  • Uses AdvAero’s own research simulator and Piaggio Avanti Flying Avionics Test Bed.
  • Makes TRL 2 and higher technologies appear as TRL 8
  • Does not require costly aircraft modifications (no holes, no cables, no flight ready hardware required)

Research Simulator

Unique, mobile research platform for all air vehicles (manned and unmanned)

  • Same cockpit configuration as the Flying Avionics Test Bed / OPV
  • Allows for early research to be conducted in a safe and low cost environment that transitions ready to the Flying Avionics Test Bed / OPV when ready
  • Used to significantly streamline avionics product evaluation and development
  • Ideal demonstration platform for customers’ new concepts
  • Used also as a teaching aid

Flying Avionics Test Bed / OPV

Unique airborne test platform for fixed wing aircraft (manned and unmanned)

  • Piaggio P180 Avanti with a dedicated two-crew flight test workstation
  • State of the art avionics systems on board already
  • Allows low maturity technologies to be evaluated and demonstrated early in an immersive environment with no need to drill holes and run cables and no flight restrictions
  • Allows promising avionics technologies to be identified early and without spending a lot of money
  • Ideal demonstration platform for customers’ new concepts
  • UAS ground station integrated – can be flown as OPV in NAS for integration, test and demonstration of new technologies without experimental flight restrictions
  • Used to rapidly and efficiently obtain TSO and STC approval for avionics and systems
