Abstract:

This report presents the results of an investigation to determine the feasibility and practicality of a two-way tow system internal to a towed target. Such a system would permit any aircraft equipped with a simple external-store rack to function as a towing aircraft. The investigation shows that, with a centrifugal fan power unit, the internal tow system is both feasible and practical. Development and evaluation of the system for operational use is recommended.
