The Rescue Wing: Design of a Marine Distress Signaling Device
2005 (English)In: Proceedings of MTS/IEEE OCEANS, 2005, 2005, 1640129- p.Conference paper (Refereed)
We present a multidisciplinary scientific analysis combining aerodynamics, flight mechanics and electromagnetics aiming at the design of a new marine distress signaling device. We show how computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and computational electromagnetics (CEM) techniques have been used to assist In the design of both the flight characteristics and the radar performance of the device, as well as how its radar signature compares to popular radar reflectors used on yachts and sailboats.
