Supersonic Jet Curtains for Control of Moments on Tailless Aircraft
The invention is a method to improve the design of tailless aircraft, such as the blended wing body design. The improvement consists of using high speed jets to create a supersonic jet curtain to provide flight directional controls. The jets are installed in the wings and are able to control the pitch, yaw, and roll of a tailless aircraft. Background:...
