X-56A: Breaking the Flutter Barrier

The X-56A is an unmanned multiple use technology demonstrator designed to test active flutter suppression and gust load alleviation incorporating advanced control technology. The technologies demonstrated by the X-56A are vital to the successful development of the slender, lightweight, high-aspect-ratio wings that could be used by future transports and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance UASs to increase aircraft performance and lower the vehicle fly away and operating costs.
