Full text of "NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS) Aeronautical engineering: A continuing bibliography with indexes (supplement )". NASA research, as it had in other aspects of aeronautics over the history of American civil aviation, formed the basis for these specifications Although its airborne sensor development effort garnered the greatest attention during the s and s, NASA Langley also developed several ground-based wind shear detection systems. One was the 5/5(1).

The German Research Institute for Sailplane Flight started development in mid, and had a prototype ready for testing within days. A cramped cockpit with a jettisonable canopy was placed just under the pulse-jets air intake, and flight controls were rudimentary, although straightforward. 5 Technical Paper Design of a mixer for the thrust-vectoring system on the high-alpha research vehicle Pahle, Joseph W., Bundick, W. Thomas, Yeager, Jessie C., Beissner, Fred L., Jr. National Aeronautics and Space Adminstration.   A flight research study of high-angle-of-attack handling qualities has been conducted at the NASA Dryden Flight Research Center using the F/A High Alpha Research Vehicle (HARV). The objectives were to create a high-angle-of-attack handling qualities flight database, develop appropriate research evaluation maneuvers, and evaluate high-angle.   Quote: If US forces are fighting in a high-threat environment, the A “isn’t really in the conversation,” Chari said. While the Warthog performs well in Iraq and Afghanistan, where the skies are uncontested, it is not suited for operating against more sophisticated air defenses.

Bowers and Langley senior research engineer Sue Grafton previously worked together on such projects as the highly successful F High Alpha Research Vehicle, or HARV. During the nine-year project that investigated a new flight control system at high angles of attack, . NASA has three Bs (highly modified from the original Canberra design) that it still uses to this day for high-altitude research. The Canberra's greatest strength was its very high flight ceiling, to the point that catching the Canberra was the gold standard for interceptors for much of the s, and specifically spurred development of the.   There’s also exoskeletal engine idea studied by NASA’s Glenn Research Center which places the compressor and turbine blades on the inside of a rotating shell instead of mounting them to a rotating shaft. This may be yet another type of technology that makes the turbine more useful in the airspace be feet.

The High Alpha Research Vehicle was an American modified McDonnell Douglas F/A Hornet used by NASA in a 3-phase program investigating controlled flight at high alpha (angle of attack) using thrust vectoring, modifications to the flight controls, and with actuated forebody program lasted from April to September NASA reported that in one phase of the project, Armstrong Developed from: McDonnell Douglas F/A Hornet.

Smoke generators and yarn tufts are used for flow visualization studies on an F/A flown by NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center, Edwards, Calif., in its High Alpha Research Vehicle (HARV) by: 1.

The NASA F/A High Alpha Research Vehicle (HARV) has been the flight test bed of a focused technology effort to significantly increase maneuvering capability at high angles of attack. Development and flight test of control law design methodologies, handling qualities metrics, performance guidelines, and flight evaluation maneuvers are described.

NASA Formulation of the High- Alpha Technology Program With this recent interest in high-a flying qualities in the aircraft community, NASA has emphasized high-a research as well, although NASA has always been interested in high-a flight. Research conducted by NASA includes aileron rudder interconnects, thrust vectoring, and unconventional.

In high alpha, the air is moving vertically from the bottom of the nose to the top instead of horizontally from front to back. By changing the deflection of one of the strakes more than the other, the pilot can push the nose one way or the other.

In normal forward flight, they aren't much use. Full write up from NASA here. In flight test programs conducted with NASA Dryden Flight Research Center, Systems Technology explored high speed flying qualities with the SR and evaluated high angle-of-attack demonstration maneuvers with the F/A High Alpha Research Vehicle.

More recently, aircraft icing identification techniques were evaluated with the NASA Twin Otter. NASA F/AC High Alpha Research Vehicle. Repaint of NASA HARV F/AC Hornet using Acceleration default F Textures only.

His flight-test experience includes loss of control mitigation and handling qualities evaluations using the Calspan Learjet in-flight simulator, ground-handling evaluation of the T, a probe-and-drogue demonstration-maneuver evaluation program conducted by the USAF Test Pilot School using the variable-stability NTA, a poststall maneuvering.

A high-fidelity nonlinear model of the F/A is developed for controller analysis using F/A High-Alpha Research Vehicle aerodynamic data in the open literature.

He started as a research engineer in structural dynamics working on flight research programs such as FXL, X, and High Alpha Research Vehicle doing ground vibration testing and flight flutter testing. His research included flight flutter techniques, active structural damping, and piezoelectric systems tests.

InDavid was the chief. High Agility Flight Dynamics and Control of Aircraft Control Methods • Handling qualities and control laws are very important for an agile aircraft.

• No use of agility if the control system is sluggish and inaccurate. “An Overview of Controls and Flying Qualities Technology on the F/A High Alpha Research Vehicle”, NASA NASA used the F High-Alpha Research Vehicle (HARV) to flight-validate high angle-of-attack (alpha) handling qualities that had not been done previously because of the difficulty in performing such tests in a safe and methodical manner.

F/A stabilators were also used as canards on NASA's FS/MTD.

NASA used the F HARV to demonstrate flight handling characteristics at high angle-of-attack (alpha) of 65–70 degrees using thrust vectoring vanes.

[16] F/A stabilators were also. The high wing sweep and taper meant that wing tip stall would be a problem and an airfoil with smooth stalling characteristics was required for the wing tips. The high speed NACA 6A (straight trailing edge) series of airfoils offered the best design flexibility for such an application.

Hypersonic flight, traditionally defined as speeds above Mach 5, meant new problems for aerodynamicists, one of which was the role of heating. At high speeds, friction causes the surface of a vehicle to heat up.

At Machthe speed NASA's X research aircraft reached in the early s, temperatures exceed ° F (° C). NASA is Born The research in high-speed, high-altitude flight resulted in a solid foundation for manned orbital flight. Langley’s accomplishments in the s were remarkable.
