Abstract:
A main objective of the STOL and Maneuver Technology Demonstrator, (S/MTD) Program was to evaluate the operability and performance of its unique engine/nozzle configuration which can deliver thrust in three different modes; conventional, vectored and through variable vanes which give the option of going from forward to reverse thrust. The two-dimensional nozzle and the modified engine were extensively tested during sea level and altitude testing to satisfy all flight clearance requirements. This paper concentrates on the flight test results of the various modes of vectoring and reversing ending with a compilation of the actual usage of the propulsive controls that could be used by designers of similar advanced propulsion systems.
