Abstract : A study of both landbased and shipboard tests of the F14A aircraft with the MK7 Jet Blast Deflector to investigate the effect of backflow of jet exhaust on the aircraft being launched and the resulting environmental temperature aft and alongside the JBD. Configuration for shipboard installation and desired mode of operation are recommended. Areas for further effort to achieve improved compatibility are also presented. (Author)
