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)
This paper presents the concept of using a knowledge compiler to transform the knowledge base and inference mechanism of an expert system into a conventional program. The motivation for this discussion is the need to accommodate real-time systems requirements in applications such as embedded avionics. The paper presents an overview of expert systems and a(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)
