Abstract : Improved maneuverability and controllability are prime goals in meeting a broad spectrum of tactical missile requirements. Configuration based on the Vought 'Propulsion Augmented Control/Lift Surface' (PACS) approach to aeropropulsive integration are candidates for satisfying these requirements. The PACS concept utilizes a jet issuing from a trailing edge nozzle to induce augmented control loadings over fin or wing planforms. The current work provides experimental validation of PACS feasibility for a representative missile fin geometry at typical supersonic/transonic conditions. (Author)
