Summary

Smart Vehicle - Advanced Technology Demonstrator consists of an uninhabited technology demonstrator that will showcase innovative, hingeless aerodynamic effectors that will increase the maneuverability and performance of the vehicle with reduced signature. An advanced autonomous management system will provide health monitoring, fault detection, systems identification, control design, and control allocation and reconfiguration.
