Auxiliary Power Systems for 1975 Fighter Aircraft 680311
This paper defines and evaluates auxiliary power systems for a self-sufficient 1975 fighter aircraft. The mission and auxiliary power requirements for a V/STOL fighter aircraft are used as a basis for this study. Candidate systems are identified and analyzed for their take-off gross weight penalty to the aircraft for missions requiring both short-time and long-time aircraft standby periods.
The components of the various systems are evaluated as to their projected efficiency, weight, and size for use in the analysis. A recommended reference system is selected as the basis for an optimized system design. Specific areas of research and development are identified as required to obtain the advanced system components.
