Semi-active suspensions are able to adapt their behavior to the specific necessities of each operation phase of the vehicle. Their application in the aerospace industry is very attractive, specifically in landing gear actuators. However, according to Ref. [1], no examples of commercial use of this technology in this industry are reported in recent reviews of the state of the art.

In this paper, the real capabilities of a magneto-rheological semi-active suspension implemented on an UAV nose landing gear designed and manufactured by CESA are introduced by the analysis of the performances obtained by test when it is submitted to quasi-static and dynamic working conditions.
