Abstract : A preliminary plan outlining the inlet/engine compatibility test program for the full-scale SST inlet and controller with the P and WA JTF17A-21B engine is presented in this document. This plan will be prepared in greater detail as the SST program advances. During the engine development program, before this test program, engine operation and limits will have been evaluated at Pratt and Whitney Aircraft facilities. The AEDC test program affords the opportunity of compatibility testing of the power-plant installation before flight. The over-all scope of the test consists of two major test programs: testing of the full-scale SST inlet and inlet controller without the engine in the supersonic tunnel at Arnold Engineering Development Center (AEDC); and testing of the full-scale inlet/engine combination with flight-type inlet and engine control systems in the AEDC supersonic and transonic tunnels simulating, to the maximum degree possible, the SST flight envelope.
