To have the competitiveness in the future worldwide small aircraft market, we should be able to develop the aircraft which is highly safe, easy to fly, and having excellent flight characteristics. FBW(Fly-By Wire) system is essential for the enhancement of flight safety and control easiness. FBW system that has been applied only to the modern fighter and transport aircraft is recently applied to smaller aircraft such as regional aircraft, business aircraft and even small aircraft. The purpose of this research includes the development of flight control computer, the definition of FBW system component, the design concept of each component for redundant management, OFP(Operational Flight Program) development, FBW system integration and HILS(Hardware In-the Loop Simulation) verification environment to test this FBW system.

As GNSS(Global Navigation Satellite System) is used in various filed, many countries establish GNSS system independently. But GNSS system has the limitation of accuracy and stability in stand-alone mode, because this system has error elements which are ionospheric delay, tropospheric delay, orbit ephemeris error, satellite clock error, and etc. For overcome of accuracy limitation, the DGPS(Differential GPS) and RTK(Real-Time Kinematic) systems are proposed. These systems perform relative positioning using the reference and user receivers. ETRI(Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute) is developing precision navigation system in point of extension of GNSS usage. The precision navigation system is for providing the precision navigation solution to common users. If this technology is developed, GNSS system can be used in the fields which require precision positioning and control. In this paper, we introduce the precision navigation system and perform design and algorithm verification.

Journal of the Korean Society for Aviation and Aeronautics, volume 21, issue 1, 2013, Pages 15~22
DOI : 10.12985/ksaa.2013.21.1.015
In oceanic flight routes, HF radio and satellite data links have weather restrictions, long propagation delay and low data throughput. In this paper, we propose oceanic aeronautical communications scheme in the VHF band based on ad-hoc communication. The proposed scheme organizes autonomously a multi-hop network that is divided into multiple local network using aircraft to fly long-distance communication and supports a hybrid type of multiple access, which consists of random access and TDMA (Time Division Multiple Access) scheme. In addition, several algorithms to apply spatial reuse of transmission to multi-hop long range communication environments have been proposed. The proposed system proves performance improvement on delay time as an effective solution to communicate end-to-end on the oceanic flight routes and strengthens the reliability of oceanic aeronautical communication.

Kim, Man-Jo ; Hwang, Chi-Jung ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Aviation and Aeronautics, volume 21, issue 1, 2013, Pages 23~29
DOI : 10.12985/ksaa.2013.21.1.023
This paper presents a tracking filter of radar beacon system (RBS) for automatic takeoff and landing of an unmanned aerial vehicle. The proposed tracking filter is designed as the decoupled tracking filter to reduce the computational burden. Also, an adaptive estimation method of the measurement error covariance is proposed to provide an improved tracking performance compared to the conventional decoupled tracking filter whenever the accuracy of RBS observations is degraded. 100 times Monte Carlo runs performed to analyze the performance of the proposed tracking filter in case of normal operation and degraded operations, respectively. The simulation results show that the proposed tracking filter provides the improved tracking accuracy in comparison with the conventional decoupled tracking filter.

The amount of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions has been increasing steadily over the last 4 years, averaging 6.8 percent a year, due to the growth of low cost carriers and the increased demand for air transportations. For the aviation GHG reduction, various fuel saving activities are implemented in many areas such as high-efficiency aircraft and bio-fuel development in the technical part and low carbon flight procedures, short cut route development in the operational approach. Among the various reduction technologies, we focused on low carbon flight procedures that are crucial to GHG reduciton and suggested a reduction effect according to target implementation rate using by fuel saving estimation data in each aircraft type.

Journal of the Korean Society for Aviation and Aeronautics, volume 21, issue 1, 2013, Pages 45~50
DOI : 10.12985/ksaa.2013.21.1.045
In this study, lumped-vortex element method and thin airfoil theory were used to analyze aerodynamic characteristics of airfoils with relative motion that had camber lines of NACA
airfoil in 2-dimensional unsteady incompressible potential flow. Velocity disturbance due to airfoil was calculated by lumped-vortex element model and force distribution on airfoil by unsteady Bernoulli's equation. Variables in relative motion were considered the period p, the amplitude of flapping
, and the phase difference between flapping and pitching
and the angle of attack
. Due to movement of an airfoil, dag was induced in 2-dimensional unsteady incompressible potential flow. The numerical results show that the aerodynamic characteristics of the airfoil with flapping and pitching at the same time are illustrated. Especially the mean lift coefficient became smaller, but drag coefficient became larger.

Risk assessment should be processed when physical circumstances of airspace such as establishment of new flight procedures or reconstruction of existing airspace are planned to change and one of the alternatives for the change have to be selected. This is an effort to find the best alternative which is able to maintain at or above the acceptable risk level. ICAO and its contracting states provide specialized guidance material for 'Safety Management System' relating to handing airspace matters. These manuals include a conceptual framework for managing safety as well as some of the systemic processes and criteria used to meet the objectives of a State's safety programme. This criteria must be established in compliance with the State's laws and regulations for air safety and for the fulfillment of the State's safety goals. This study is to carry out the risk assessment criteria through literature reviews relevant to the safety management, and to propose the results of criteria to be applicable for establishing flight procedure design process.

Human Powered Aircraft (HPA) should be light in weight and have high efficiency because power source of propulsion is human muscles. Airframe structure takes up most of empty weight of aircraft, so weight reduction of structure is very important issue for HPA. In this paper, design/analysis/test procedures for ultra light weight structure of the HPA developed by Korea Aerospace Research Institute (KARI) are explained briefly. Structural design is conducted through case studies on HPA in the USA and Japan. Loads analysis is performed to calculate design loads which is needed for structural design and analysis. Structural analysis is conducted for structure sizing. Static strength test of main wing spar which is primary structure of wing is performed to verify structural integrity.

Early remotely-piloted aircraft system (RPAS) development focused on simple reconnaissance to obtain information by visual observation for military demands. Currently, various types of remotely-piloted aircraft (RPA) is being developed worldwide for applications in many different areas. As RPA avionics are combined with CNS/ATM technologies, RPA capabilities will be enhanced and the market is expected to grow rapidly. ICAO has been held the Air Navigation Commission on 14 October 2011 to discuss revising Procedures for air navigation services (PANS) and guidance material related to RPA and their associated systems. It progressed that Annex 2 and 7 will be revised and came into effect from 2012. However most of incorporate revisions are not clear yet. Because the revision articles recommend follow requirements of the state(s). Considering operations of RPA in controlled airspace and between adjacent states, the qualification and training of RPA pilot will be one of the main issues for RPA operation. In this paper, we will take a look at international and domestic trends of regulation framework in ICAO and RPA advanced country in chapter 2.1 and suggest about consideration of remote pilot qualification and training for establishing regulations of remote pilot license.

In an effort to decrease aviation accident worldwide, development of aviation safety management has been sought through aviation index and standardization, both by establishing SMS(Safety Management System). It also needs to be done in the domestic. both study on SMS which ICAO recommends and setting the top priority safety goal, each differently classified by nations. Accordingly, defining safety index and developing continuous monitoring approach. Aircraft accident reporting system in Air Force does not operate in a open approach method due to its uniqueness related to mission achievement. Therefore, limits of utilizing the recent worldwide aircraft data sharing and analyzing results to prevent accident is inevitable. This paper introduces an overview of ECCAIRS 5 which become the standard for the recent worldwide aviation safety reporting and data exchange system. Also using ECCAIRS 5, aircraft accident cases of the Air Force are classified such as accident type, year, month, occurrence category, and flight phase. The result of the study will provide a guide line for utilizing the civil system in prevention of future military aviation accidents.
