The purpose of the research program was to determine the performance benefits which can be obtained for a fighter aircraft through the application of maneuver load control MLC and relaxed static stability RSS, and to evaluate the resulting impact on aircraft handling qualities. Analytical results were to be obtained in this study to indicate whether significant fighter aircraft performance benefits can be realized through the use of MLC and RSS, and whether these aircraft design concepts are compatible for all configurations selected for study. These study results were to show whether desirable handling qualities and adequate stability margins are attainable using existing fly-by-wire flight control system hardware with relatively minor modifications.
