Abstract:

The Digital Flight Control Systems for Tactical Fighters Program is a development program the objective of which is to define the technology necessary to apply digital flight control techniques to the three-axis, multiple flight control configuration demands of advanced fighter aircraft. Analysis efforts have defined powerful analytical DF CS models and 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 indicated 100 iterations per second as satisfactory for the longitudinal axis.
