1 September 2005 RTB 1 Flight Testing Activities RTA Deputy Director Lisbon, Portugal September 2005

2 September 2005 RTB 2 Direction Evaluation of Flight Testing Expertise in RTO Assessment of validity of maintaining Flight Testing Expertise in RTO Assessment of validity of maintaining this expertise in SCI Report to the RTB

3 September 2005 RTB 3 Flight Test Discussion Meeting held on 7 Sep at the RTA RTA Deputy Director, SCI Chairman, FT3, SCI Exec Flight Test Technical Team (FT3): –Strong History of Documenting and Disseminating Flight Testing Best Practices mainly via AGs –Well Organized and Integrated Team Conclusion: Very valuable contribution to NATO Nations

4 September 2005 RTB 4 Flight Test Background in AGARD & RTO This Flight Test Community In Existence Since 1968 AGARD: Flight Mechanics Panel/Flight Vehicle Integration –Flight Test Instrumentation Committee –Flight Test Instrumentation Group –Flight Test Techniques Working Group –Flight Test Editorial Committee1993 – 1998 RTO: SCI –Flight Test Technology Team (FT3) (SCI-055) 1999 – 2001 –Flight Test Technology Task Group (SCI-122) 2002 – 2004 –Flight Test Technical Team (FT3) Task Group 2005 – 2007 (SCI-172)

5 September 2005 RTB 5 Flight Test Technical Team (FT3) SCI-172 Task Group Mission To Disseminate Information Through Publication Of AGARDographs On Flight Test Technology Derived From Best Practices Which Support The Development Of Concepts And Systems Critical To Maintaining NATOs Technological And Operational Superiority To Enable Advancements In Flight Test Technologies To Be Discussed In Open Forum Within The NATO Community By Identifying And Distributing Flight Test Training Opportunities, And Through Proposing And Facilitating Symposia, Short Course, Lecture Series, Etc To Serve As The Focal Point For Flight Test Subjects And Issues With The SCI Panel While Ensuring The Vitality And Continuity Of The Network Of Flight Test Experts Within The NATO Community
