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

There is a significant paradigm shift occurring within the design of Uninhabited Combat Air Vehicles (UCAVs) in that all technology domains (both human and mechanical) are being evaluated against mission-level objectives and not the traditional stovepipe system and subsystem metrics. 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.
