Evolution of the STOL and Maneuver Technology Demonstrator 872417

The STOL and Maneuver Technology Demonstrator Program is designing and developing, through tests, simulations and analyses, a new aircraft and propulsion control system that not only better utilizes aerodynamic controls, but also incorporates the propulsive forces of vectoring and reversing, plus braking and steering on landing roll out. The new concepts being developed, which include an integrated flight and nozzle control with a two-dimensional nozzle, will be validated through a series of flights exploring takeoff and landing techniques along with cruise and maneuvering flight. Results of this program are being used to transition these concepts into future fighter systems.
