Morphing Aircrafts and Wings enable optimal performance in all flight conditions and missions, now started being outfitted on commercial aircraft

morphing-wings

The design of aerodynamic airfoils is optimized for certain conditions. For instance, the shape of the wings of fixed-wing aircrafts are designed and optimized for a certain flight condition (in terms of altitude, speed, aircraft weight, etc.). However, these flight conditions vary significantly during the flight. Currently, aircraft are provided …

Countries developing new concepts and technologies for Sixth-generation Fighter Aircrafts for Air superiority in future anti-access/area-denial environment

6thgenaircraft

The United States, United Kingdom, Germany, Japan, Russia and China  are all in early planning stages for a so-called “sixth generation” of fighter jets. The jets won’t fly until the 2030s, but governments around the world are already exploring, a conceptualized class of fighter aircraft design more advanced than the …

New concepts and technologies for Military Aircraft Survivability including Laser Directed Energy Weapons

2e2843e2ade511d88df42c8a44a73c77

Eastern Ukraine incident  in 2014 demonstrated the vulnerability of aircrafts where a passenger jet was downed by surface-to-air missile, killing all 298 people aboard,  and  fired from territory held by pro-Moscow separatists. Current aircrafts have become vulnerable to sophisticated networked surface-to-air missile batteries produced by Russia and China, which could destroy …
