STRATOSPHERE S.A technologies aligned with major Aerospace tech trends

High-Mach projects take shape If commercial supersonic flight does return to the skies, chances are it will look something like the Overture. Prospective Concorde successor Boom Supersonic unveiled a ‘refined’ design for its supersonic airliner, designed to fly at up to Mach 1.7 over water and Mach 0.94 over land. Based on 26 million hours of […]

Optimization of SHM for Airliners

Structural health monitoring (SHM) using sensor networks makes it possible to reduce the manual inspection costs of aircraft. These costs depend both on components and on usage, and increase with aircraft age. As dedicated SHM systems increase aircraft weight and electric power demand, it is of interest to assess firstly, for which specific components monitoring might be […]

Complexity is the Rule not the Exception

Early systems thinkers were still ultimately aiming to improve their ability to better predict and control a system. The introduction of insights from chaos theory and non-linear mathematics into systems science sparked the development of complexity theory. A set of key characteristics such Interconnectedness, unpredictability, and uncontrollability are part of all complex dynamic systems.  The sciences of complexity are a […]
