FLIGHT TRAJECTORY OPTIMIZATION FOR AN EFFICIENT AIR TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM is an assumed sphere with radius R and the aircraft’s position is located by latitude I, longitude T 1and altitude H ¨in a polar coordinate frame XYZ. The Great Circle Route (GCR) defined as .   For these flight tests the baseline configuration was used. These flight tests proved that: (i) the predictions regarding takeoff and landing runway distance had less than 10% divergence from the actual test flights, (ii) the control surfaces provided an aircraft response exactly as calculated in flight mechanics analysis, (iii) the flight test.   Stability and Control Analysis for an Unmanned Aircraft Configuration Using System-Identification Techniques.

The Intelligent Flight Control System team is currently in the process of implementing a second generation control scheme, collectively known as “Generation 2” or “Gen 2,” for flight testing on the NASA F aircraft. This report describes the Gen 2 system as implemented by the team for flight test .   American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Sunrise Valley Drive, Suite Reston, VA A NASA Dryden Flight Research Center program explores the practical application of real-time adaptive configuration optimization for enhanced transport performance on an L aircraft. This approach is based on calculation of incremental drag from forcedresponse, symmetric, . aircraft has been tested in flight for a post-design performance optimization and for the assessment of flight qualities. These experiences have led to the application of two winglets to the original wing. The final configuration has beenextensively tested for the achievement of CS certification.
