Wyle to help minimize unmanned aircraft mishaps

  • 05-Feb-2010 04:14 EST

Wyle signed an agreement with the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, OH, to develop formal flight and sensor operator-training courses designed to enhance the proficiency and competence of AFRL small unmanned aircraft systems flight operations with the goal of minimizing unmanned aircraft mishaps. To support the training portions of the program, Wyle will build and operate two aircraft, each with a mass of approximately 20 lb with a wing span of approximately 6 ft. The aircraft are significantly modified versions of a common model radio-controlled aircraft that AFRL uses for various sensor and flight-control research projects.

Thermal imaging data obtained from a FLIR high-performance camera shows that the expected turbine output temperature is approximately 285°C when the helicopter is in forward flight. However, during hover operations a steady state temperature of about 343°C will be reached.
