AOE 2104--Aerospace and Ocean Engineering Fall 2009 Virginia Tech October 1 2009 Aircraft Structures 5 REMINDER!!! Hovering Missiles and Disappearing Aircraft Revolutionary New Adaptive Aerostructures Technolog Dr. Ron Barrett Associate Professor Department of Aerospace Engineering University of Kansas 5.00 pm October 8th 2009 McBryde 100 This talk outlines some highly advanced adaptive structures technologies which are radically changing some of the most dynamic corners of the aerospace world. The development of the XQ-138 Hovering Missile prototype will be laid out from napkin to firing range. A brief history of this program highlights its roots as a hovering UAV. By using adaptive aerostructures, the flight control device speed and low weight expanded its useful load to allow the missile not only to hover like a helicopter, but also pitch over and dash out for more than an hour like a missile. Video of the aircraft launching from an armored vehicle at Redstone Arsenal, live antitank engagement at Eglin Air Force Base and 40mm submunition launch at Ft. Benning will be shown. The second adaptive structures technology shows off
