Abstract:

The Advanced CivilMilitary Aircraft ACMA is envisioned as an advanced-technology cargo aircraft with the potential for fulfilling the needs of both military airlift and commercial air freight in the 1990s and beyond. The ultimate goal of the Design Options Study is the development of fundamental information regarding both the military and commercial cost and effectiveness implications of the most significant transport aircraft functional design features. This volume, the Approach and Summary Results of the Design Options Study Final Report, provides the background for the requirement for the ACMA a description of the approach taken in this investigation of transport aircraft design options a summary of the initial Qualitative Assessment used to reduce the scope of the study and finally, a summary of the results of the detailed analyses. These results include estimates of the effects on aircraft geometry and efficiency, military effectiveness, and both civil and military costs, for incorporating in the ACMA each of the design options identified in the Qualitative Assessment.
