Navy Advanced Flight Control Actuation Systems 740888

This paper describes a program directed toward establishing the feasibility of a new and innovative Flight Control Actuation System concept. This concept is based on the utilization of a fly-by-wire, direct, electrically controlled surface actuator which accepts computer signals. Standardized modules are used to provide alternate actuator configurations and power classes. The concept is in accordance with MIL-F-18372 which states that “Flight control systems should be as simple, direct, and foolproof as possible, with respect to design, operation, inspection, and maintenance.”
