Abstract:

This thesis analyzes the environmental compatibility and the potential performance capabilities of two proposed types of vertical flight capable aircraft in an aircraft carrier Anti-Submarine role. The aircraft compared are the CV HelicopterSH-60F and an ASW variant of the Joint Services Advanced Vertical Lift JVX tilt-rotor aircraft. This thesis compares their adaptability and relative expected mission effectiveness by analyzing their physical dimensions and characteristics and their projected flight performance parameters. Their expected performance in a specific scenario, an ASW pouncer mission employing active dipping sonar, is analyzed using a simulation model.
