The report describes a pilot-in-the-loop Display Referenced Flight Control System for automatic longitudinal control of an aircraft during takeoff ground roll, rotation, and climbout. The takeoff control system configuration uses the Display Referenced Flight Control System described in AFFDL TR-71-90, a KC-135 as the test aircraft, and the KC-135 rotatego-around system described in Air Force T. O. 1C-135KA-2-11 as the longitudinal steering signal source. The integration of the rotatego-around steering signal into the Display Referenced Flight Control System to satisfy the KC-135 aircraft takeoff dynamics is presented. Also the technique of providing a pilot-in-the-loop capability through pilot control force steering during the takeoff maneuver is discussed. Author
