Advanced design studies indicate that use of “control configured vehicle” (CCV) concepts can provide improvements in combat capability and versatility. These benefits will be evidenced by improved performance and survivability, as well as by new maneuvering capabilities not available to pilots of current aircraft. The fly-by-wire (FBW) techniques, utilized to enable CCV, also provide the potential for improved flying qualities. The end result of applying these concepts in the preliminary design stages can be a lighter weight fighter aircraft to do a given job better.
