Evaluation of Advanced Air Vehicle Designs in the USAF 730945
Design studies performed by the U. S. Air Force examine the implications of various capabilities. These internal studies highlight questionable areas, define critical elements, provide sensitivity information, and form the basis for understanding subsequent work. The Interactive Computer Aided Design (ICAD) system has been designed to combine the best capabilities of the computer and man. It develops data needed to permit a rational choice between alternate sets of requirements, and develops the internal expertise necessary to evaluate the design proposed to meet these requirements.
