Abstract : In the last decade, Active Control Technology (ACT) has emerged from the realm of theory and modest experimental applications to full-scale use on production aircraft, while more elaborate forms of ACT are under test for the future production of aircraft. New technologies have been applied in military fighters to maximize maneuverability and agility, and in civil transports to reduce trim drag, lower pilot workload and improve riding qualities. During this symposium the status of Active Control Technology was assessed in light of the experience gained over the last decade. The symposium was organised around four sessions comprising 28 technical papers in all. These sessions focused on: Specifications for flight control design, Design and analysis methods, System integration and implementation of experience. Two keynote speakers introduced the fomm with balanced operational and research viewpoints. A Technical Evaluation Report on the Symposium is also included in this Conference Proceedings Document. Copies of papers presented at the Flight Mechanics Panel Symposium held in Turin, Italy, 9-13 May 1994. (AN)
