According to the optoelectronic requirement of minimum control speed flight test for civil planes, an accurate measurement technology of department distance from aircraft to runway centerline based on images of forward-looking runway was proposed. A high-speed digital camera was mounted on the ventral centerline to obtain the forward-looking images of runway and aircraft landing gear of the running plane. With image interpretation, sub-pixels coordinates of intersection on aircraft main wheel connection and runway flag line were identified. With the high-accuracy calibration of camera measurement parameters and single-station location theory of photogrammetry, the object space coordinates of the intersection could be accurate calculated, and then the distance from aircraft to runway centerline could be obtained. The measurement result of flight tests shows that this measurement scheme is feasible, the measurement result is reliable, and the measurement accuracy of 3 cm can be realized, which can meet the requirements of flight tests. © 2016, Editorial Board, Journal of Applied Optics.

Time-delay is one key factor affecting handling qualities of remote piloted vehicle. In this paper, the composition elements of time-delay were analyzed, in order to determine the relationship between latency and handling qualities. Then, comparing with the definition of time-delay in manned aircraft operation, the expression of time-delay was proposed for remote piloted vehicle and the measuring method of time-delay in piloted airplane was used as a reference. Moreover, considering different types of time-delay in RPV operation, typical open-loop and closed-loop experiments were designed and conducted based on ground testing environment. According to these results, the relation between time-delay and handling qualities was obtained. Finally, validity of this relationship was demonstrated through simulated approach and landing during flight testing. Time-delay is a critical element of RPV handling qualities, the research of which will be helpful and meaningful in unmanned aerial vehicle design and flight testing. © The Authors, published by EDP Sciences, 2017.

Extending the calendar life of airborne products is an urgent problem for aviation maintenance engineering since there are not sophisticated theories and methods. This paper analyzes the existing problems in life control system of airborne products. Based on the reliabilitycentered maintenance (RCM) theory and flight test, then a new method called "Comprehensive Analysis and Decision-making Method for Life Extension" is presented. At last, flight test results are given to illustrate the correctness and effectiveness of the methods. The method makes great contribution to the integrated logistic supportability of the aircraft.

High sink speed landing was discussed which was used to verify the strength and rigidity and shock-absorbing ability of landing gear in land-based airplane flight test. Sink speed was one of the key factors in landing gear design and verification. In fact, aircraft landing was effected by many factors, so it is very difficult and full of high risk for pilot to manipulate an aircraft to land at sink speed regulated by specifications. Landing and touchdown methods, such as floating-drop and direct-gliding and landing training were put forward and used in flight tests. According to this, the sink rate of a land-based airplane flight test in domestic reached 2.47 m/s, which is the maximum up to now. So the landing gears of this type aircraft satisfy relevant specifications.

The coolant flow in the aircraft liquid cooling system is usually regarded as an important parameter of the assessment of the system performance. With the aid of utilizing the diameter-variable ducts in the liquid cooling system as a throttling element, the coolant flow can be measured by using the differential pressure method. By applying data fitting to the experimental findings obtained from the groud calibration system, the characteristic curves of the coolant flow versus differential pressure for different temperature and pressure values were obtained. Furthermore, the formulate for the correction of calculated coolant flow were gained through linear interpolation. The flight test results indicate that the method is feasible for the measurement of the coolant flow of the aircraft liquid cooling system and, therefore, the problem of inconvenient refitting of flowmeter for the liquid cooling system has been solved.

The motion parameters of aircraft and its external store can be obtained by photoelectric theodolite in flight test, but due to large distance measured or target blocked, it's difficult to capture target very fast. After adding GPS receiver on the aircraft, we can get geodetic coordinate in real time. After the real-time acquisition data coded thought the telemetry channel, the ground machine can demodulate coordinate of the aircraft. The PCM data Stream can be received from the airborne transmission stream through the PCM telemetry receiving channel which is integrated on photoelectric theodolite. At the same time, the geodetic coordinate of aircraft can be demodulated from the data stream in real time. By this way, the external guide for photoelectric theodolite can be achieved after the data processed and transmitted to the control system of photoelectric theodolite. Application results show that the guided precision has good performance in the remote target capture and good results in practical application of this technique for photoelectric theodolite. ©, 2015, Chinese Academy of Sciences.

An image data measurement system was created based on the moving target performance testing requirements and the characteristics of test platform, in order to realize video recording and external parameters measurement of the target. Multiple high-speed cameras were reasonably arranged from calculated distance of the camera and mimic diagram. Camera calibration method was used which is combined the checkerboard-lattice parameter calibration in OpenCV with the line-basis field calibration. Additional, high-speed image data, midline video data and GPS data were combined to achieve the measurement of position, attitude and other external parameters. Analysis of measurement accuracy and experimental results prove that the measurement method is accurate and reliable. Its coordinate accuracy is better than 10 cm in horizontal direction and 5 cm in elevation direction, and the attitude accuracy is better than 0.5°, which fully meet the measurement accuracy requirements.

For the purpose of complete flight test mission of a carrier-based aircraft, its arresting hook loads are measured using strain gage. A three-direction (longitudinal, lateral and vertical directions) load model of arresting hook is built through analyzing the loads in the arrest deck-landing process. Strain gages are designed and installed on the arresting hook. Ground calibration tests are implemented and load equations are constructed. Some typical loads of arresting hook in the process of carrier-based aircraft arrest deck-landing are also presented in detail, and the arresting energy and efficiency of arresting gear equipment are studied. Moreover, compared with the loads obtained by an ordinary single-direction load model, the three-direction load model is discussed. The results show that the load model and measurement methods are correct and credible, which can provide some references for the engineering practice. ©, 2015, AAAS Press of Chinese Society of Aeronautics and Astronautics.
