FEASIBILITY STUDY AND INVESTIGATION OF THERMO-ELECTRIC POWER GENERATION AND COOLING FOR FLIGHT VEHICLES
DOUGLAS AIRCRAFT CO INC EL SEGUNDO CALIF
The descriptive analysis of the steady state power generating system which forms the basis for the optimization and evaluation computer program is 80 complete. The desirability of incorporating the transient program with the steady state program is being investigated. A study to determine the electrical requirements such as voltage, frequency, and power required by military aircraft and missiles was started. The following is a summary of the information obtained to date. Navy Combat Aircraft Electrical information was obtained on the A3D, A4D, F4H, F11F, F8U, and F6D aircraft. Power requirements are as follows Fighter Aircraft 12 20 kva, Large Attack Aircraft 30 - 120 kva, Small Attack Aircraft 9 kva. Rocket Powered Missiles Information was obtained on the Thor, Nike Zeus S ybolt, and Genie. The current required for these missiles varies between 5 and 70 amperes d.c.. Author
