Abstract : A simulation of a projected 1980-era Navy attack aircraft suitable for man-in-the-loop investigations of energy management is developed. A set of energy management systems and display subsystems are defined based on an optimum climb and cruise concept proposed by Rutowski and Bryson which uses the energy-state approximation. The potential value of the technique is demonstrated by digital flight simulation. The technique is easily mechanized and closely approximates optimum flight paths previously computed only in extensive land-based facilities. It is within the present state of the art in airborne systems and could greatly alleviate pilot workload while simplifying cockpit instrumentation. (Author)
