Development of a Multi-Mission Sizing Methodology Applied to the Common Support Aircraft 2001-01-3014

A methodology is developed for the rapid quantification and exploration of the design space of a multi-mission vehicle. This method is applied to the Common Support Aircraft, a vehicle with four separate missions, to determine which is most critical to size the vehicle. The Airborne Early Warning mission is shown to be critical for sizing the Common Support Aircraft. Furthermore, the method developed gives a feel for the excess capability of the aircraft in its other support roles. Finally, this methodology is shown to be useful in the creation of balanced requirements for multi-mission vehicles.
