R T Priestley, A R Yackle: 1499. V/STOL; STOL; CTOL Comparisons. 1982.



Multi-mission, CTOL, STOL and V/STOL aircraft concepts were sized for the Navy ASW/ASUW missions and comparatively evaluated. Initially, technology levels in the areas of lift, control systems, propulsion, advanced materials and avionics were established for the early 1990’s The aircraft were compared to determine the impact of multi-mission requirements, operational considerations, chiefly takeoff mode, as well as the technology advancements. Results presented include performance envelopes, weight statements, growth factor, impact of technology on weight reduction and the impact of design constraints.
