Functional Test Procedures

Functional Test Procedures on the Iron Bird, preparatory to the first flight, began on the 26th of February. These trials are aimed at providing the complete closed-loop functionality of all the on-board integrated systems, including: Flight Control System, sensors, propulsion unit, fuelling system, electrical distribution system, data link and safety recovery system.

The program is progressing on schedule. The tests are managed directly through the Ground Control Station, developed by Sky Eye System in collaboration with Interconsulting, by which various operative missions are set up, simulating flight, and executing them either automatically through preassigned Way Points, or through direct intervention of the pilot and the observer.

The results gathered to this point showcase the excellence of the project in terms of on-board system reliability and of command and control performances.
