A contingent of Aerospace Systems Design Lab faculty from Georgia Tech-Lorraine (ASDL@GTL) traveled to Bordeaux, France late last month to attend the 2020 Aerospace Europe Conference and present their work on OASyS, an EU-funded project that supports the Clean Sky 2 program. Their presentation was part of an initiative of the Aircraft Noise and Emissions Reduction Symposium, which was held in conjunction with the AEC.
The Overall Air Transport System Vehicle Scenarios (OASyS) project focuses on forecasting future scenarios to inform Clean Sky’s Technology Evaluator -- thus enhancing its modeling capability to estimate the impacts of potential scenarios that include advanced configurations like urban air mobility vehicles and supersonic transport aircraft within the global fleet. ASDL@GTL was awarded the project through its involvement in the Unité Mixte Internationale, a research partnership created in 2006 by Georgia Tech and France’s Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique and currently housed at the Lorraine campus. .
Heading up the team was Prof. Dimitri Mavris, AE lecturer Turab Zaidi, and ASDL graduate students Colby Weit, Jiajie (Terry) Wen, Akshay Anand, and Madhukar Mayakonda. The team also presented its first paper in support of the OASyS, “A Methodology for Supersonic Commercial Market Estimation and Environmental Impact Evaluation (Part I).”
