The ISAE-SUPAERO Foundation thesis prize has been awarded to Simone Coniglio for his thesis work!

The ISAE-SUPAERO Foundation thesis prize has been awarded to Simone Coniglio for his thesis titled "Topological 𝗢𝗽𝘁𝗶𝗺𝗶𝘀𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 with Eulerian and Lagrangian formalism applied to the design of a propulsion unit"
A 2016 graduate of the Université de Technologie de Compiègne and the Università Politecnico di Torino, with an end-of-studies internship on the topological optimization of damping treatments at Airbus Group Innovation, Simone Coniglio began his thesis in October 2016 under the supervision of Joseph Morlier (Research Professor at ISAE-SUPAERO), Christian Gogu (Research Professor at Université Paul Sabatier) and Rémi Amargier (Doctor of Engineering at Airbus), with CIFRE financing.
His thesis deals with topological optimization applied to the primary structure integrating engines under the wings of civil aircraft. In his thesis, a framework for topological optimization is developed to improve the design of an engine pylon, engine supports and nacelles. The optimum design is obtained by taking into account the von Mises stress constraint and a requirement unique to the engine’s design, or a reduction of the variations in the play at the ends of an engine’s blades under the loads of aircraft maneuvers. He sums up his thesis for you in 3 minutes flat.
Since November 2019, Simone has been working at Airbus on topological and parametric optimization for the propulsion unit’s integration.

French SUPERCAM instrument records audio from INGENUITY’s Fourth flight! NASA/JPL-Caltech/LANL/CNES/CNRS/ISAE-SUPAERO

Perseverance was parked 80 metres from the small rotorcraft, which rose to five metres and then hovered before flying downrange for 133 metres and returning to its take-off and landing spot. SuperCam’s science microphone, developed by ISAE-SUPAERO, recorded the sound from the helicopter’s whirring rotors during the flight. The sound registered 84 hertz, equivalent to a low E note on the piano or a bass voice type.
“This is a wonderful surprise for the science team!” said Naomi Murdoch, a research scientist with ISAESUPAERO who is studying the data captured by the microphone. “Testing in a Mars atmosphere simulator to design this instrument and our sound propagation theories led us to believe the microphone would find it very difficult to discern sounds from the helicopter. As Mars’ atmosphere is very tenuous, it really attenuates sounds. So we needed a bit of luck to pick up the helicopter from this range. We’re thrilled to have obtained this recording, which is going to be a gold mine for our understanding of the planet’s atmosphere.”
Developed jointly by ISAE-SUPAERO and a consortium of laboratories attached to the French national scientific research centre CNRS and partner laboratories, coordinated by CNES, SuperCam’s microphone is derived from a consumer model adapted to withstand the Martian environment. The microphone is pursuing three science and technology goals of the Mars 2020 mission:
Study the sounds generated by laser impacts on Martian rocks to better understand their surface mechanical properties.
- Seek to gain new insights into surface atmospheric phenomena such as wind turbulence, dust devils and wind interactions with the rover, and now with the helicopter.
- Analyse the sound signature of the rover’s movements, for example when it is using its robot arm, driving on flat or rugged terrain, and operating its pumps.
The microphone was first turned on a few hours after Perseverance’s landing, picking up the first sounds on Mars from atmospheric turbulence. It is used daily in combination with laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) to analyse the chemical make-up of Martian rocks.
