Abstract : Future fighter concepts require air intakes with not only good performance characteristics over an even wider operating range, but also require inlet designs with low signature characteristics. The thrust of the working group's effort is to evaluate existing design tools and experimental capabilities for providing the innovative design concepts that meet the ever demanding challenges for engine inlets of advanced vehicle configurations. The present paper will give a brief survey over the different objectives of the working group.
