Abstract

Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) have become increasingly predominant within most reaches of the military and government, accomplishing tasks for less cost and in less time. To support this growing percentage of aeronautics, the ability to refuel/recharge UASs midflight using a drogue-probe (paradrogue) is being studied and developed using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) methods. This project utilizes the most powerful computing resources available on the Embry – Riddle Aeronautical University Prescott Campus to simulate and test a scaled model of a paradrogue system (already in use by the U.S. military for manned aircraft refueling) within various environments, to support the wide variety of UASs currently used. It is the goal of this project to compute sufficient data to begin wind tunnel testing and future model development.
