Measures of Merit for Aircraft Dynamic Maneuvering 901005

New parameters which characterize aircraft dynamic maneuvering performance in air-to-air combat have been developed. The parameters are functions of both the time to perform the task and the spatial aspects of the maneuver. They have been developed for a point-and-shoot engagement and roll reversal maneuver, although the procedure is sufficiently general that it can be applied to most combat maneuvers. The parameters can be used to predict the outcome of air-to-air engagements and the time advantage that one aircraft has against another aircraft.
