Flight Mechanics, Systems and Integration (GoR-FM)
The GoR-FM is active in the field of air vehicle systems technology in general, including, but not limited to:
- Avionics systems
- Multidisciplinary design aspects
- Performance and stability and control
Beyond flight mechanics, the GoR-FM is responsible for subjects concerning flight guidance, air traffic control, sensor technology and systems, human factors and related matters, with reference to both manned and manned aircraft.
Recent GoR FM Action Groups
|FM/AG-18||Towards greater Autonomy in Multiple Unmanned Air Vehicles||2010||2013|
|FM/AG-19||Flexible Aircraft Modeling Methodologies||2010||2013|
Current GoR FM Exploratory Groups

New Topics Under Review
The FM-GoR has identified a lot of topics on which to work and is currently selecting the topics on which to focus on.
Examples of future topics:
- More electric RPAS, civil research
- Robust / Adaptive Flight Control Laws
- Flexible / rigid mode Flight Control Laws
- Improved and simple analysis tools in control law validation
- Validation / certification
