Abstract:

The application of a modified Rutowski logic to mission throttleenergy management was extended, investigating additional types of mission segments and providing a means of logically integrating optimum segments into mission profiles. Measurable fuel savings through throttle modulation were predicted for a demonstration flight mission for the F-4E airplane. A flight path and throttle control system was designed for following the optimum paths. A hybrid simulation plan was prepared.
