The United States aerospace community has entered an era characterized by declining activity, due largely to the increasing complexity and cost of aerospace systems. Industry and Government are engaged in a search for air vehicles that will carry increasingly larger payloads at reduced cost and levels of pollution, and that will not require vast expanses of land from which to operate.
