AbstractDuring the development of an aircraft it is mandatory to demonstrate that the aircraft is free from flutter within its operational flight envelope. This piece showcases JFlutter, a flutter analysis tool developed within Airbus Defence & Space Flight Test Analysis Tools. JFlutter allows the analysis of this phenomenon in real time monitoring and post flight mode. Using the FxS dataserver as data provider, a reliable data gathering mechanism has been used for this critical tool. As flutter means aero elastic instability, potentially dangerous, flight safety becomes a main requirement. For safety reasons and in order to reduce overall test program duration it is necessary to check predicted frequencies and damping in real time / monitoring.
