Abstract : This paper describes the Integrated Control and Avionics for Air Superiority (ICAAS) piloted simulation evaluations, along with the system development leading up to the simulations and the data analysis plan for evaluating simulation results. The ICAAS advanced development program is sponsored by the United States Air Force Wright Laboratory at Wright Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio. A research and development contract was awarded to the McDonnell Aircraft Company, St. Louis, Missouri, in September 1987. The program objective is to develop, integrate and demonstrate critical technologies which will enable United States Air Force tactical fighter blue aircraft to kill and survive when outnumbered as much as four to one by enemy red aircraft during air combat engagements. Primary emphasis is placed on beyond visual range (BVR) combat with provisions for effective transition to close-in combat.
