The author discusses the ADAM II (Air Deflection and Modulation) propulsion system as it is applied to LTV propulsive wing airplane configurations which house all or part of their propulsion system within the wing surface.
Briefly mentioned are the original ADAM I configuration and its subsequent development to the present ADAM II, together with a discussion of the characteristics currently used for each of its components such as fan turbine set, gas generator, hot gas ducting, wing mounted turbofans, and mechanical cross shafting.
The ADAM II concept is applicable to a full spectrum of subsonic aircraft and the propulsion system uses present day state-of-the-art technology which makes the feasibility of its development quite real.
