TEST AND EVALUATION OF A REAL-TIME SIMULATED TRANSCONTINENTAL SUPERSONIC BOOMLESS FLIGHT SYSTEM. VOLUME I. MAIN TEXT AND APPENDIX A

In the investigation reported, numerical methods simulated supersonic flight carried out in real-time and concurrently at present time. A computer program identifies, acquires, analyzes and predicts the information needed in order to plan, fly and verify boomless flight. It optimizes the cut-off Mach time-gain in trade-off along with other pertinent necessary considerations now being regularly carried out in the advanced air operations of today. For communication information in current real-time for boomless transcontinental flights, the investigation utilized nationwide networks: ARINC, UNINET. The program foresees the future conditions affecting the cut-off Mach flight performance in sufficient time for carrying out reliable preflight planning and for monitoring the in-flight modifications just ahead of the aircraft, utilizing the appropriate prediction of atmospheric conditions (boom-ahead computer).
