The INCAS Systems Division is oriented towards Research-Development strategies in the aerospace field.
The research interests cover aerial vehicle dynamics, including flight mechanics, control theory and control methods applicable to fixed or rotary wing and space vehicles. The Department provides expertise starting from basic flight control systems to command systems for CPS – Cyber Physical Systems, UAV/UAS – Unmanned Aerial Vehicle/Unmanned Aircraft Systems, and autonomous systems with AI (Artificial Intelligence).
The main objectives of the division is determination of equipment performance, improvement and increase of reliability, development of research laboratory capacities together with a significant modernization of equipment and computerized monitoring processes. Theoretical elements and calculations lead to technological maturation at high TRL levels, ensuring an industrial qualification of proposed technologies.
