A description is given of the rapid prototyping facility (RPF) at the Dryden Flight Research Facility of the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration. The facility, also known as the remotely augmented vehicle (RAV) facility, has been used to test control-law concepts on the F-8 DFBW (digital fly-by-wire) aircraft. It is intended as an adjunct to(More)
Flight and mission-critical systems arc verified , qualified for flight, and validated using well-known and well-established techniques. These techniques define the validation methodology used for such systems. In order to verify, qualify, and validate knowledge-based systems (KBSs), the methodology used for conventional systems must be addressed, and the(More)
This paper describes the development of an automated flight test management system (ATMS) as a component of a rapid-prototyping flight research facility for AI-based flight systems concepts. The ATMS provides a flight test engineer (FTE) with a set of tools that assist in flight test planning, monitoring and simulation. This system is also capable of(More)
