airforce / flight control avionics

Flight control and avionics work in tandem to propel the aircraft. A typical fixed-wing aircraft flight control system and avionics consists of control surfaces and their cockpit controls, connecting linkages, and electronics to move the control surfaces. Ailerons, rudders and tail elevators are the three basic control surfaces found in any fixed wing aircrafts.

The secondary control surfaces are trim tabs, flaps, air brakes, spoilers, leading edge slats, and variable-sweep wings.

The avionics of flight control is operated by the Fly-By-Wire (FBW) system, which replaces the conventional pneumatic, hydraulic and mechanical systems in order to reduce the overall weight of the aircraft and increase efficiency of the engine.

This system consists of electronic controls and actuators. A further enhancement to the FBW is Fly-By-Optics, which transfers control commands through fibre optics.

Other enhancements and research in the field of flight control and avionics are flexible wings, variable speed wings, and active flow control.

We are developing and finding a list of suppliers for this category.
