The Integrated Propulsion Control System IPCS program was conducted to pursue and demonstrate the advantages of integrated propulsion controls. The program encompassed the design, build, flight qualification, and flight testing of control modes, software, and hardware. The flight test vehicle was an F-111E. The left inlet and TF30-P-9 engine were modified to operate under control of an HDC-601 computer. Two sets of hardware were built or modified and two sets of software were developed one implemented the bill-of-materials control laws and one implemented control laws developed under contract. Fifteen flights were conducted to evaluate the IPCS. The testing demonstrated that integrated digital propulsion control is effective. This document describes the flight test program and flight test results. Author
