This technology has been referred to as Control Configured Vehicles CCV and includes flutter mode control, ride smoothing, relaxed static stability RSS and maneuver load control MLC. This study investigated the compatibility of two of these concepts, RSS and MLC. The primary question to be answered was do the two concepts operating simultaneously enhance or degrade each other and are the combined performance gains the sum of the gains of the individual concepts. Two classes of military aircraft, a bomber and a fighter were used as a basis to determine if the compatibility was configuration dependent. Author Modified Abstract
