Abstract

A wind measurement system based on a new approach is described. This new approach makes use of the possibility to determine the angles of attack and sideslip with data from a navigation system and to apply appropriate computational procedures. Thus, aerodynamic flow sensors are not required. An efficient software has been developed for performing the computations at a high update rate in real-time. The described wind measurement system is installed in a research aircraft and is tested in an experimental program. Results from the test program are presented for verification of the performance of the wind measuring system.
