W M Childers: 1738. Staying Ahead in Maritime Partol. 1986.



This paper presents an analysis of the requirements for the land-based maritime patrol aircraft of the future. A discussion of the anti-submarine warfare mission, both present and future, leads to definition of the aircraft needed to fulfill this mission into the next century. Possible sources for this aircraft are considered. Based upon the assumption that a derivative of the current maritime patrol aircraft would be the most cost-effective source for the new aircraft, an analysis of the weight increments associated with incorporating new capabilities into the current airplane is presented. Particular attention is given to determining an acceptable solution to a need for expanded center of gravity limits. Two derivative aircraft are defined: one which retains the same external size of the current airplane and another which is increased in both length and span.
