Integrated Energy Management System for Uninhabited Combat Air Vehicles (UCAVs) 1999-01-2499

This shift provides the opportunity to evaluate the benefits of comprehensive integration of the air platform and propulsion system. The challenge is to develop engineering methods that allow designers to achieve the proper balance between vehicle performance and engine performance meeting the ultimate measure of merit: system level objectives.
