Meet the researchers dedicated to the ENAC – Groupe ADP – Sopra Steria Research Chair on Drone Systems
Graduated from ENAC in 1996, he joined the Centre d’Études de la Navigation Aérienne (CENA) to perform research in the domain of interactive systems engineering. He contributed to projects linked to air traffic safety (EPOQUES), simulated aircraft piloting for experimentation and simulation (IIPP), HMI evolution for drone control and their impact on their autopilot (Paparazzi).
In 2006, he joined ENAC as the head of a specialized program on interactive systems conception, development and evaluation.
From 2011 to 2015, he has been responsible for the teaching team in charge of the system engineering, HMI, computer safety and security courses.
Her research interests include aircraft / satellite dynamics and control, with a speciality in fault detection, diagnosis and isolation. She holds a BSc in Astronautics and MSc in Aeronautics and Astronautics from Istanbul Technical University. Before joining ENAC's Drones team, she was a teaching and research assistant in Istanbul Technical University for 7 years, assisting to a variety of courses mainly on satellite estimation/control. She was involved in national and international projects mainly on satellite control design and air traffic management during this period.
Her new challenge is to achieve a safe flight design utilizing fault detection/ diagnosis algorithms with an implementation on drones.
He obtained a diplôme d'Ingénieur in Civil Aviation Engineering at ENAC, and a Master in Autonomous Vehicle Dynamics and Control from Cranfield University.
After his studies he worked for 4 years for the Altran company, as a subcontractor to Airbus Aircrafts' Stability and Control Department. His field of work included Handling Qualities and Flight Control Laws.
As part of the Chair, he will tackle the concepts of U-space and UTM (Unmanned Aerial System Traffic Management) by formulating a specific scenario: the use of drones to help inspect NAVAIDs as a complement to piloted aircrafts. This will enable the development of both the technological solution (the drone itself) and the regulatory framework that will be compulsory for its insertion in busy airport traffic.
