Forebody Inlet Optimization

Calspan Provides Unique Solutions to achieve your Inlet Testing Goals

Calspan’s Fore Body Inlet Optimization provides data for total pressure recovery, distortion, stability characteristics and primary/ECS/bleed air simulation.

Ejector augmentation/ mass flow plug system used to control mass flow(s).

Up to 15 lb.-m/sec can be provided at proportionally lower supply pressures.

Secondary low volume air control option (0.02 to 0.1 lb.-m/sec) for secondary or tertiary flow.

We capture up to 1,024 static pressures and 96 unsteady pressures (AIP Rake(s), inlet surface, etc.).
