Ameel, Frederick Donald
MetadataShow full item record
The development of VTOL technology over a thirty year period was reviewed. Various powered-lift concepts were explored and recent application analyzed. The ACSYNT computer program, developed by the NASA Ames Research Center, was used to predict the takeoff performance of a proposed jet STOL transport utilizing the Lockheed AIBF system. A correlation of the performance of the S-3A VIKING aircraft was performed.
