Research Overview under construction...

Our mission is to develop design methodolgies and tools for the next generation of environmetally friendly aircraft. With these methods and tools we want to enable a faster integration of new technologies into future aircraft. We focus on system and subsystems considerations and how they can be included in the conceptual design phase to establish concept feasibility and more mature requirements.

Developing next-generation multi-disciplinary design, analysis, and optimization capabilities for next-generation aircraft (funded by NSERC, CRIAQ and Bombardier)

in collaboration with the European project AGILE4.0: Towards cyber-physical collaborative aircraft development


Exploration and modeling of alternative propulsion technologies for business jets (in collaboration with University of Sherbrooke, Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal, Bombardier, Pratt & Whitney, and Calogy Solutions; funded by CRIAQ and NSERC)

What do we do? Developping conceptual design models for hydrogen-based propulsion (hydrogen tanks, fuel cells) and thermal management systems. We are also working on the MDAO framework and overall aircraft integration aspects.


Methodologies and tools for virtual design and testing of advanced flight control systems

Funded by NSERC and Bombardier

Aircraft systems architecting methodologies for more electric, hybrid, and unconventional vehicles

NSERC - Discovery Grant

ACI-OPT: Aircraft Component Installation Optimization

ACI-OPT aims to accelerate the development process of future aircraft featuring novel technologies or configurations. In particular, novel tools and methods will be developped to improve the conceptual design of aircraft by automating and optimizing the placement of aircraft systems and components, considering the many competing constraints (safey, maintainability, thermal aspects, wiring weight).
