Mission-Adaptive Wing Flight Demonstration Program 811035

The AFTI/F-111 program is a full-scale-development flight test and evaluation of the mission-adaptive wing concept. This concept features variable-camber leading and trailing edge flaps that are automatically positioned to alter the wing airfoil geometry and provide best performance throughout the flight envelope. The flaps use flexible skins that are curved and positioned by internal mechanisms so that smooth airfoil contours are maintained for peak aerodynamic efficiency.
