Fly-by-wire is an automated flight control system that interprets the commands entered by the pilot or autopilot and then delivers the appropriate commands to the actuators on the flight control surface. For the pilot to remotely manipulate the control surfaces, this automated electronic system takes the role of the conventional mechanical and hydraulic flight control systems (levers, rods, cables, and pulleys).
The flight control computer (FCC) of the aircraft keeps track of sensors all around the craft and automatically modifies the actuators on the flight control surfaces in accordance with the flight control rules to improve performance and flight safety. FbW is essentially an automated closed-loop control system, and its fundamental components are as follows:
Reference information supplied by either the pilot or the autopilot via the yoke, side stick, pedals, or any other actuation element. • Instruments or aircraft sensors that give the FCC response feedback for estimation and comparison with reference input.
A fly-by-wire system automates flight control by processing input from the pilot or autopilot and sending the appropriate commands to the actuators on the flight control surface.
The old mechanical and hydraulic flight control systems (levers, rods, cables, and pulleys) are replaced with an automated electronic setup so that the pilot can remotely control the control surfaces.The surface control actuators translate the FCC signal command into hydro-mechanical force or torque to change the position or angle of the surface controls.
The Flight Control Computer (FCC) calculates how much the current aircraft aerodynamic variables deviate from the reference input and what action should be commanded to the actuators to manoeuvre the aircraft safely (Rudder, Elevators, Slats, Spoilers, Flaps, and Aileron). They are directly in charge of altering the aircraft’s main rotational axes (Roll, Pitch, and Yaw);
The Global Aircraft Fly-by-wire Control System Market accounted for $XX Billion in 2023 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2024 to 2030.
The Compact Fly-By-Wire system employs the latest in electronic processing technology to deliver the safety and performance we pioneered in air transport fly-by-wire systems into the Part 23, eVTOL and urban air mobility aircraft platforms. With a size little bigger than a hardcover book, this system supports a triplex architecture, lockstep processing, and other capabilities.
Compact Control with Strong Power, The Compact Fly-By-Wire system assures that all potential channel failures on passivated and redundant systems can transfer control without interfering with aircraft control or needing the heroic efforts of the pilot to save the aircraft.
The technology is also capable of envelope limiting, which keeps the plane within a safe operating range even if the pilot loses his or her bearings. This is perfect for giving unmanned vehicles a steady flying experience.
Major advantages: Compact and lightweight, allowing for greater design options for aircraft with the same or more power. Moreover, lighter loads result in fuel savings. increased safety thanks to equipment that has been tested for decades on aeroplanes.
“Cable-less” avionics help lower maintenance expenses by cutting costs not just for design, production, and development, but also for the entire maintenance and overhaul process.
