Abstract:

The Digital Flight Control Systems for Tactical Fighters Program is a development program which defines the technology necessary to apply digital flight control techniques to the three-axis, multiple flight control configuration demands of advanced fighter aircraft. Analysis efforts to date have defined powerful computer program tools which permit determination of flight control system performance as a function of computational parameters -- word length, sample rate, and computational delays. An exercise of the programs using the F-4 as a model indicates 100 iterations per second as satisfactory for the longitudinal axis.
