CHALLENGE TO ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY TRANSPORT AIRCRAFT SYSTEMS

From the point of view of providing a potential for improved economic performance, six areas of advancing technology are particularly significant: supercritical aerodynamics, friction drag reduction, induced drag reduction, active controls, composite materials, and improved specific fuel consumption. Some potential solutions for future all-new advanced technology transport systems are examined.
