Our structural, avionic and system engineers are a part of the process at every stage – specifying, designing, assembling, testing, and certification...working meticulously from the initial preparation right through to the delivery of the aircraft.

Our Engineering expertise encompasses 4 key areas:

Design

Our multi-disciplined engineering team designs all levels of aircraft modification from simple to complex installations, including multi-system integrations and aircraft configuration changes. Concept & prototype design, detail design, and production drawings are produced using CAD & Parametric Solid Modeling design software to assist in design verification before installation starts. In addition to these capabilities, we also produce all technical and maintenance publications to support our modification designs.

Analysis

Our engineering analysis capabilities support our diverse project activities - ensuring that all components operate smoothly and perform as they should. Areas of analysis include:

  • Classic Structural Stress Analysis
  • Finite Element Analysis
  • Damage Tolerance
  • Aerodynamic Load Analysis
  • Computational Fluid Dynamics Modeling
  • Failure Modes and Effect Analysis

Functional Analysis

Putting our avionics integration capabilities to work, we also offer extensive electrical load and EMI/EMC analysis to make sure all on-board systems operate as intended. In addition, we rely on Antenna Conflict Analysis to determine if an existing antenna needs to be relocated - effectively minimizing changes required at the flight test stage.

Ground and Flight Testing

Field Aerospace can conduct ground and flight tests on many types of aircraft - large or small, piston, turboprop, or jet-powered. Our capabilities span a wide range, including testing:

  • Aerodynamics
  • Avionics
  • Rf Hazard
  • Antenna Performance
  • Airframe Performance
  • Radar and Electro Optical Sensor Performance
  • Interior Configuration Evaluations and Compliance
