Abstract:

The principal concerns in the development of air-breathing propulsion, it is generally agreed, are fuel availability, engine-airframe-control integration, life-cycle reliability and environmental problems. In several respects integration presents the most challenging problems from the point of view of future airplanes, especially those in which multi-mission capability, maneuverability and special flight characteristics are demanded. Within the framework of military aircraft technology, short-haul carriers with VSTOL capability constitute one of the important classes of airplanes requiring urgent development. Integration problems are especially severe in this class of airplanes, and the solution of those problems largely determines the success of the airplanes to meet the projected mission objectives. This Workshop was devoted to a discussion of the current status, the scope for developments and the needs in research in the general area of integration problems in short-haul, VSTOL problems. The Workshop was attended by about 63 persons who came from various institutions such as universities, industries, government laboratories and research funding agencies.
