Abstract:
It was anticipated that during X-29 extended duration, high angle-of-attack flight (40 to 70 deg), aircraft ECS performance would significantly degrade. Computer modelling of the system indicated that the performance of the ECS decreased as the angle of attack increased. Modifications to improve system performance were analyzed and, as a result of this analysis, ECS hardware modifications have been incorporated on the aircraft. The High-Alpha Flight Test Program has proven the validity of these modifications. To date, the ECS on Ship No. 2 has performed well within its nominal operating parameters in the high-alpha regime.
