Abstract:

The overall objective of the design effort was to conduct a preliminary vehicle-sizing activity to establish baseline configurations for the STOL tactical aircraft investigation. These preliminary baselines were used for the takeoff and landing studies and as a point of departure for wind tunnel test planning and flight control technology activities. The liftpropulsion concepts studied were Externally Blown Flap EBF Mechanical Flap plus Vectored Thrust MFVT and Internally Blown Flap IBF. The report summarizes the design activities for the three-month and six-month configuration reviews.
