The Mission Adaptive Compliant Wing was flight tested at Scaled Composites in Mojave, CA, at the end of October 2006. Stay tuned for more images, movies, and results as they become available. More...
SARL Wind Tunnel Testing
In June 2006 the MACW was tested in the Subsonic Aerodynamic Research Laboratory (SARL) at Wright-Patterson Airforce Base. Testing showed that the MACW performs as designed. More...
The MACW has undergone rigorous fatigue testing at FlexSys. A 40 x 60 inch structural model is awaiting testing by the Test Structures Group at Wright-Patterson AFB. More...
University of Michigan Wind Tunnel Testing
A smaller MACW prototype was tested in the University of Michigan 5' x 7' low speed wind tunnel. More...
Compliant Leading Edge
FlexSys has designed and
prototyped a wing leading edge whose
camber changes continuously from 0-6° . Wind tunnel testing
demonstrates a 25% increase in the lift coefficient and a
51% increase in lift-to-drag ratio, particularly at high
angles of attack. More...
