Abstract : Pneumatic automation technology showed a significant step forward during the recent years. A turning point in this control technique was reached in 1959/60, when the pneumo- automatic principle using elements without moving mechanical parts and based on the reciprocal hydroaerodynamic action of the operating fluid passing through fixed lines, was applied for the first time. This new technology is identified today as fluidics, or, in the systems where air functions as the operating agent, as pneumonics. The article deals with the application of fluidic (pneumonic) elements and systems in craft which responds most readily to the new technology, i.e., in aircraft, missiles and spacecraft. (Author)
