The IBM Company's Continuous System Modeling Program was used to simulate the lateral and directional flight control systems of the F/A-18 aircraft. The model is designed for use in studies of high angle-of -attack maneuver ing flight and is restricted to the Auto Flaps Up mode of operation. The model accepts simulated pilot stick and rudder inputs, air data information, and rate gyro, angleof- attack, and acceleration feedback signals. Outputs are differential stabilator, differential leading-edge and trailing edge flap, aileron, and rudder deflections. Typical input values are used to validate the model, generating output control surface deflections which correspond to those expected for the F/A-18 aircraft.
