Revitalization of the Force Simulator and suitability of compatible loads on the T-27 Tucano and AT-29 Supertucano aircraft


The innovative design of a "Force Simulator for the EMB 312 T-27- Tucano" aircraft was developed through the regular research support from FAPESP, N° 2005/51519-0. The result of this research project can be observed through the acquired patent (Privilege of Innovation/Registration number: 0000220708555664), 7 (seven) published articles (3 with impact factor), and presentations at National and International congresses as a result of research using this equipment. In the period from 2008 to 2017, this Simulator was widely used in the post-doctoral research of the beneficiary of the project, entitled "Analysis of Intracranial Pressure (ICP) using a non-invasive method in Brazilian Air Force Aviators submitted to increases in Gz in flight and simulator force tests'', FAPESP n° 2014/21803-7. Research partnerships were carried out with researchers from the Medical School of Ribeirão Preto/USP, Institute of Physics of São Carlos/USP, Technological Institute of Aeronautics, and Center of Aerospace Research in Microgravity of the Pontifical Catholic University of RS, providing great study possibilities in the area. Aiming at the continuity of the experiments, we are requesting through FAPESP Regular Aid support for Revitalization of the Force Simulator and suitability of compatible loads on the T-27 Tucano and AT-29 Supertucano aircraft. The objective of this current project is to carry out more advanced research in a sector still little explored in Brazil (aerospace), but with increasing worldwide expansion, providing continuity to studies revitalizing the Force Simulator. For this we count on our experience of more than thirteen years of research in the field, highlighting the results already acquired up to the present moment, and will receive scientific support from researchers and highly specialized institutions. Thus, we are sending an application to FAPESP for Regular assistance for this project for the next 24 months. (AU)
