On March 9th, 2017, CIMNE Latin America Foundation (FCL) has received the official communication from the Ministry of Defence of Argentina to have selected its proposal presented in the call "Ideas-Project 2016".
A public event will be held on April 19th, 2017, in the General San Martín Hall of the Ministry. During the event FCL will receive a mention for the project proposal "Autonomous Parachute System Simulator (APS)".
The idea-project APS is oriented to develop a platform of simulation of autonomous parachute systems. The program will be designed to assist the developer during the design and analysis of the parachute and its load, its control system, and the adjustment for each specific mission. The methodology will be based on two mated calculation modules, aerodynamic and structural, that will be able to interact with the control system for the simulation of autonomous flights in specific scenarios. The tool should provide practical solutions in acceptable times and using modest computational resources.
