Preliminary vehicle-sizing activities and subsequent design update based on related studies, wind tunnel tests, and flight simulations conducted during a STOL Tactical Aircraft Investigation are summarized. The designs developed during Part 1 of the study were based on state-of-the-art technology and powered by scaled derivative engines using existing cores. The three preliminary designs for the lift/propulsion concepts were then updated during Part 2 to complete the study. Resulting point designs are based on data from 1100 h of wind tunnel tests, aerodynamic and stability-and-control methodology development, and stability and flight control technology studies.
Technology developed by Convair Aerospace during the STOL Tactical Aircraft Investigation shows that a light and efficient advanced medium STOL transport can be designed and produced.
