Kestrel on Centennial


Kestrel is the software product produced by the fixed-wing team of the CREATE Air Vehicles project (CREATE-AV). Its primary purpose is to reduce the cost of acquiring new fixed-wing aircraft by making accurate, timely, and easy-to-use simulations available to every participant in the acquisition process, including early designers and contractor partners. Kestrel is comprised of two major pieces. The first major piece is the Kestrel User Interface (KUI) which serves as the main "face" to the user, allowing for simulation input and postprocessing. The second is the runtime infrastructure (CSI).
