dc.description.abstractRecent developments in post-stall maneuverability and thrust vectoring have opened up new possibilities in the field of air combat maneuvering. High angle of attack maneuvers like the Cobra, Herbst Reversal, and Chakra demonstrate that today's cutting edge fighters are capable of exploiting the post-stall flight regime for very dynamic and unconventional maneuvers. With the development and testing of Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicles, even greater maneuvering ability is expected. However, little work has been done to make use of this increased ability by optimizing a wide range of combat maneuvers. The goal of this thesis was to begin that process by finding several time-optimal air combat maneuvers that could be employed by current and future high performance fighter aircraft.en_US
