Abstract : A brief overview is given of some design options for tactical combat and support aircraft during the next decade. Although continuing advances in vehicle technology are expected, it appears that exploitation of new technology for avionics and ordnance systems can produce the most significant improvements in over-all system capability. Selected design approaches are discussed to improve aircraft control and utilization and to aid in defense penetration and weapon delivery. The potential for using existing technology to develop remotely manned systems for tactical air applications is discussed. (Author)
