Abstract:

Thrust vectoring is a key technology for future combat aircraft. Together with an advanced thrust vectored engine control system, the ITP thrust vectoring nozzle concept with a common actuation system for all nozzle functions throat area, exit area and all axis vectoring is an appropriate solution to meet the stringent requirements concerning performance, reliability and safety resulting from the intended use of thrust vectoring for flight control. An enhanced link between the flight control system and the engine control system will be necessary and the combined engine and nozzle control will have to meet new functional requirements. These requirements are on one hand related to the nozzle itself and on the other hand to the interactions between the nozzle and the engine.
