The Control Configured Vehicle Ride Control System Program was conducted to demonstrate the capability of significantly improving the ride quality of a large flexible airplane and lengthening its structural life. The ride control system employs both horizontal and vertical canards to be installed and flight tested on the B-52 LAMS vehicle. The analysis, design, and flight demonstration of the ride control system was directed toward one discrete flight condition, low level, high speed. The ride control system was designed to reduce pilot station acceleration while flying through atmospheric turbulence. Author
