Abstract:

The AFTIF-111 Advanced Fighter Technology IntegrationF-111 Mission Adaptive Wing is a joint USAF and NASA program which is developing and flight demonstrating a smooth variable camber wing and flight control system capable of adjusting the wings shape in response to flight condition and pilot input in order to maximize aerodynamic efficiency. The program objective is to produce flight substantiated design criteria for a practical wing system that maintains peak aerodynamic efficiency and versatility throughout the broad flight envelopes and diverse mission requirements of future military and civilian aircraft. This document contains illustrations presented at the second AFTIF-111 Mission Adaptive Wing Briefing to Industry on 21-22 July 1988 in Dayton OH. The presentations covered the analysis, design, ground test, and flight test phases of the development of the automatic flight control system for the AFTIF-111. Flight testing of the AFTIF-111 Mission Adaptive Wing system was only partially complete at the time these illustrations were prepared for presentation. Data and findings should be considered preliminary. Keywords Jet fighters Variable leading edges Variable trailing edges Smooth variable camber wing Automatic flight controls.
