Abstract:
The STOL and Maneuver Technology Demonstrator (S/MTD) Program has validated a set of technologies that give a supersonic fighter all-weather Short Takeoff and Landing (STOL) performance while also enhancing up-and-away maneuverability. Significant reductions in both takeoff and landing distances, compared with the unmodified F-15, have been measured. The additional pitch control power of thrust vectoring has been demonstrated up to 30° angle of attack. The effectiveness of up-and-away reversing has been identified. First, major flight test results are presented and then lessons learned from this integration program are discussed.
