BOEING X-48 PROJECT
One of the most exciting and high profile UAV's flying today is the Boeing X-48 Blended Wing Body or BWB. Designed by Boeing in conjunction with NASA Dryden the X-48 has performed flawlessly over the past few years gathering critical flight data to help refine the BWB aerodynamic and control system design.
Aero Telemetry was contracted by The Boeing Company to build the front landing gear for the X-48 blended wing body unmanned air vehicle. The design and fabrication of the landing gear required the Aero Telemetry team to perform dynamic load testing with data acquisition sensors to match deceleration rates to acceptable airframe load limits.
