    Abstract: This paper presents the estimation of longitudinal aerodynamic parameters by using Genetic Algorithm (GA) optimized method from simulated and real flight data of ATTAS aircraft. The simulated flight data is deliberately contaminated with 5%, 10%, and 15% of random noise for creating flight data, which bears similarity to real flight data. The propo... Show More

    Abstract: Software and systems engineering for aerospace platforms presents many unique challenges. The decision if, and how, to employ software product line architectures is one recurring question. Real options analysis—applying option valuation techniques to budgeting decisions—can be a powerful tool for engineering managers, project leaders, and mission d... Show More
