Americans will accelerate the development of aircraft thanks to the digital double

(ORDO NEWS) — Northrop Grumman is developing a digital replica of a flying testbed based on the CRJ700 aircraft. It will allow virtual flight tests of equipment before tests in the sky.

The Double will test digital versions of various systems, such as fighter jet radars, in realistic virtual environments. This approach will avoid the physical limitations of the test bench.

It is assumed that it will increase the scale of experiments, as well as reduce the time of testing and the cost of conducting them.

Northrop Grumman has a long history of using flying testbeds for a wide variety of programs. Among them are several CRJ-700s. In its original form, this is a regional aircraft built on the basis of the Bombardier CRJ200. He made his first flight in 1999.

As aeronautical systems and subsystems become more complex, flying laboratories are becoming more and more useful.

Recall that a few years ago , an Interfax source said that the Il-76 transport aircraft would be used as a flying laboratory for testing the technologies of a promising bomber.
