Aside from commercial aviation platforms, the application arena for distributed control system V&V tools extends to Air Force engine platforms. The verification toolset will benefit fly-by-wire systems sponsored by DoD such as UAVs, UGVs, and AUVs. Interest in fault-tolerant distributed control systems spans across many industries, particularly the automotive, energy, and manufacturing systems areas. The proposed distributed hardware-in-the-loop evaluation platform and verification software tools will enable the development of distributed aircraft propulsion control systems and flight control avionic systems. In addition to Fundamental Aeronautics, the developed tools extend to verification of flight-critical control and health management software and distributed avionics that are relevant to the Aviation Safety and Exploration Systems. Impact Technologies will position the hardware simulator for inclusion in future planned NASA/DoD-led Distributed Engine Control demonstrations.
