Abstract

The Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) program as currently planned will be the dominant new fighter program for the next two decades. Several features of the program make weight predictions and weight control particularly vital to program success. These factors include the fact that the aircraft must meet differing requirements of at least four different services, must adhere to strict cost/affordability constraints, and in one version must meet demanding Short Takeoff/Vertical Landing (STOVL) requirements. The impact of these factors on weight analysis and control methods will be described from a Chief Engineer' s perspective, beginning with a few historical observations and ending with recommendations and challenges to the weight engineering community.
