Now covering both conventional and unmanned systems, this is a significant update of the definitive book on aircraft system design
Design and Development of Aircraft Systems, Second Edition is for people who want to understand how industry develops the customer requirement into a fully integrated, tested, and qualified product that is safe to fly and fit for purpose. This edition has been updated to take into account the growth of unmanned air vehicles, together with updates to all chapters to bring them in line with current design practice and technologies as taught on courses at BAE Systems and Cranfield, Bristol and Loughborough universities in the UK.
Design and Development of Aircraft Systems, Second Edition
Design and Development of Aircraft Systems, Second Edition has been written to be generic and not to describe any single process. It aims to complement other volumes in the Wiley Aerospace Series, in particular Aircraft Systems, Third Edition and Civil Avionics Systems by the same authors, and will inform readers of the work that is carried out by engineers in the aerospace industry to produce innovative and challenging – yet safe and reliable – systems and aircraft.
Essential reading for Aerospace Engineers.

In the second edition of Design and Development of Aircraft Systems, Ian Moir and Allan Seabridge provide a straightforward introduction to how aircraft systems are designed and evolved, explaining to the reader the means by which the systems of a complex aircraft emerge from a customer requirement and become reality as individual sub-systems; as an integrated overall system; and as a complete fit-for-purpose aircraft. This edition has been updated with extensive new material on unmanned air vehicles, together with updates to all chapters to bring them in line with current design practice and technologies.
For many engineers, the design and development activity takes place at a single domain level—the fuel system, the hydraulic system, flight control system, etc. Increasingly, however, there is a need to consider how these domains integrate into the bigger picture: for example, the engineer designing the display system will need to consider the entire weapons system. Concentrating on the product life cycle, the design and development process, and the skills required to develop a product as complex as an aircraft, Design and Development of Aircraft Systems, 2nd edition is a book for people who want to understand how industry develops a fully integrated, tested, and qualified product that is safe to fly and fit for purpose.
Commercial and military aerospace engineers, designers, operators, maintenance crew and those studying to become part of the aerospace industry will find Design and Development of Aircraft Systems, 2nd edition an invaluable resource.About the Author:
After 20 years in the Royal Air Force, Ian Moir went on to Smiths Industries in the UK where he was involved in a number of advanced projects. Since retiring from Smiths he is now in demand as a highly respected consultant. Ian has a broad and detailed experience working in aircraft avionics systems in both military and civil aircraft. From the RAF Tornado and Apache helicopter to the Boeing 777, Ian's work has kept him at the forefront of new system developments and integrated systems implementations. He has a special interest in fostering training and education in aerospace engineering.
Allan Seabridge is the Chief Flight Systems Engineer at BAE SYSTEMS at Warton in Lancashire in the UK. In over 30 years in the aerospace industry his work has included avionics on the Nimrod MRA 4 and Joint Strike Fighter as well as a the development of a range of flight and avionics systems on a wide range of fast jets, training aircraft and ground and maritime surveillance projects. Spending much of his time between Europe and the US, Allan is fully aware of systems developments worldwide. He is also keen to encourage a further understanding of integrated engineering systems.
