Our Research and Development programs combine the knowledge and equipment necessary to produce advanced new technologies and products for sky and space.
Transonic Wind Tunnel
This is one of the largest commercial transonic wind tunnel facilities in Japan. The 86m-long blow-down-type wind tunnel has a 1m×1m test section. Scale models are used to measure aerodynamic characteristics and to observe stream behavior at high speeds.
Flight Simulation Test Facility
This facility is used to study the flight characteristics and controls of real aircraft. It simulates the feeling of flight using detailed computer graphics surroundings. The facility is also used to study fly-by-wire control systems.
Microwave Anechoic Chamber
This facility is used for antenna/radome tests, electromagnetic interference tests and to study stealth technology.
Anechoic test facilities to study engine, rotor and aerodynamic noise.
Mine Detection Vehicle (MINEDOG)
KHI's mine detection vehicles, a part of the mine detection and clearance systems (BULLDOG) developed for humanitarian aid purposes. These vehicles detect mines and unexploded bombs buried in the soil.
(It was used to search for unexploded shells at Kabul International Airport.)
Full-size Structure Static Test
Conducts strength evaluations of aircraft structures by using full-scale models.
Scanning Electron Microscope
Conducts observations of real samples by magnifying large areas of the surface, or a fractured surface, of materials and parts
Aircraft Antenna Characteristic Analysis
Conducts the design of antenna equipment by numerical computations
