Olivier Sornique - Airbus
Olivier Sornique is Pressure Pad MEMS Projects Leader for Flight Test Installation within the Airbus Commercial Aircraft business unit. His work in the Airbus Flight Tests Centre seeks new opportunities and product innovations focused on meeting and exceeding customer requirements; he is always looking to improve technical expertise in flight testing performance, safety and accuracy. Olivier focuses on MEMS technology dedicated to aerodynamic measurements that demand the highest levels of accuracy and performance. His work also involves the search for new and emerging MEMS technologies and manufacturing partners who share a zeal for uncompromising quality and service in highly competitive global markets.
MEMS Sensor Solutions in Flight Test Applications
Even while accuracy, repeatability and reliability are important aspects of commercial aircraft flight tests, Airbus has increased performance by developing its Measurement Mapping process that heightens sensor density. This achievement produces large data sets for in-depth analysis and has added a dimension to flight testing not possible with legacy solutions. Airbus also leverages off-the-shelf MEMS devices for Measurement Mapping, easing installation and reducing lead-times. The presentation will focus on the technology being utilized as part of the Airbus flight test environment and the company’s philosophy to continually improve upon its processes and global service and innovate the future of commercial air travel.
