Abstract:

This study attempts to determine if a pilot can manually release a bomb while in a turn. The nonlinear equations describing the geometry, fire control law, aircraft equations of motion, flight controls and pilot model are developed. These equations are linearized so that a frequency response analysis can be conducted for perturbations about a nominal trajectory. The system response is evaluated using wind gust inputs and lateral stick inputs and plotting the resulting system perturbations over a given frequency range. Author
