Abstract:

This volume presents a summary of two studies performed to validate the new MIL-F-9490D Specification. This work was accomplished by the Northrop Corporation, Aircraft Division using the YF-17 Lightweight Fighter, and the Lockheed-Georgia Company using the C-5A Heavy Logistics Transport. This validation was based on existing ground test, flight test and analytical data as was available for this validation process. Each applicable paragraph was examined with regard to practicability, accuracy, and completeness as a requirement for procurement, design, test and installation of flight control systems for future piloted military aircraft. Recommendations have been made with regard to changes considered necessary to improve the practicability, accuracy, and completeness of the specification and to improve or update the Users Guide.
