Abstract : The patent relates to a jet flap control system for bombs, missiles and aircraft that is deployed along the trailing edge of a wing for achieving high lift at zero angle of attack. The jet flap can be utilized to provide wing lift, roll control and a small amount of altitude control without appreciatively increasing the drag.
