Abstract : This reports provides a summary of research conducted over a period of 2.5 years into the application of micro vortex flow control to supersonic mixed compression inlets. The research performed under this contract has led directly or contributed to a significant number of conference and journal publications. The ley lessons learned are described and illustrated with relevant data. Archival publications are given for further reading as they provide more detailed information. The purpose of this report is to summarize the body of work and highlight the most significant findings in the context of supersonic inlet flows. As a result of this research, lessons learned are given in Section 7 of the final technical report which are relevant to future inlet design and development.
