The air transport industry is aware that it needs in particular to significantly reduce its environmental impact. In this context, the Infrastructure for Evaluating Air Transport Systems (IESTA) aims to gather the multidisciplinary knowledge of the aeronautical research in physical modelling guarantying the ability of the evaluation platform to handle innovative concepts.

I.Introduction HE Advisory Council for Aeronautics Research in Europe (ACARE) has strongly warned the aeronautical community that the European Air Transport System (ATS), presently close to its limit, is facing the develoTpment [1]. challenge of a continuously growing demand with a wish of sustainable and economically viable The challenge is to accommodate the forecast increase in air traffic as well as reducing the relative impact of aviation with respect to noise and emissions. The ACARE has identified four goals to address the environmental challenge [1]: ·To reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by 50%. ·To reduce perceived external noise by 50%. ·To reduce NOx by 80%. ·To make substantial progress in reducing the environmental impact of the manufacture, maintenance and disposal of aircraft and related products. The goals emphasize the efforts air transport industry needs to make in order to reduce the environmental impact in the following areas: 1 Long-term Design & Systems Integration Department, muriel.brunet@onera.fr 2 Long-term Design & Systems Integration Department, thomas.chaboud@onera.fr 3 Long-term Design & Systems Integration Department, nicolas.huynh@onera.fr 4 Numerical Flow Simulation & Aeroacoustics Department, patrice.malbequi@onera.fr 5 Physics & Instrumentation Department, weeded.ghedhaifi@onera.fr 1 American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics
