Abstract

The estimation of the angle of attack and sideslip angle is of fundamental importance for the situational awareness of an aerial vehicle. Historically, several accidents occurred due to failures of the traditional protruding probes applied to measure these two angles. The MIDAS project aims to design and develop a certifiable Air Data System capable of providing the entire set of Air Data, integrating a synthetic estimation of the aerodynamic angles. All operating conditions shall be taken into account, even those related to atmospheric phenomena. The wind effects (both steady and unsteady) represent a very challenging topic when design a synthetic sensor because of its intrinsic nature. In fact, the airflow surrounding the AC can be affected by several phenomena with a very wide range of characteristics (e.g. speed and direction range) that can be hardly simulated during the design stage. It is clear that the atmosphere condition (both steady and unsteady) can affect this particular kind of sensor, and it must be analysed the error in the presence of the wind. The paper shows the estimation error due to the steady wind field and correction to be applied to previous synthetic sensors design in order to be reliable both in still air and in presence of the wind.
