The Red Army learned and practice the art of deception at all levels of warfare during World War II. By cloaking various force groupings and activities, Soviet military leadership, particularly in the latter stages of the war, created operational-level deceptions that surprised German intelligence and commanders. Through their empirically structured military science, Soviet researchers and doctrine writers have applied deception to the tactical, operational and strategic levels of war. While...

Among the many activities at the Air Force Missile Development Center contributing to the expanding fields of guided missiles and space technology, that of the Balloon Branch is among the more important. Upon first consideration, the contributions of ballooning may seem detached from the development of missile weapon systems or the conquest of space.

Divergence experienced during rolling maneuvers has frequently been referred to as inertial coupling. This leads to a misconception of the problems involved. The divergence experienced during rolling maneuvers is complex because it involves not only inertial properties, but aerodynamic ones as well. The material in this chapter is intended to offer a physical explanation of the more important causes of roll coupling. Coupling results when a disturbance about one aircraft axis causes a...

Aircraft performance, in its most general sense configuration, can be defined as the flight achievements an aircraft must execute for successful mission accomplishment. Obviously, expected performance parameters must be an integral part of the design process of an aircraft. Given certain performance expectations by the customer, the designer must make decisions regarding wing loading, power plant selection, airfoil selection, planform configuration, and myriad other considerations. All of these...

Does America need more F-14 Navy fighter jets? After 5 months of debate in Congress, the question may finally be answered by a conference committee of the House and Senate members. But the future of the aircraft, assembled on Long Island by Grumman Corporation, is likely to be decided more by old-fashioned politics than by the loftier issue of national defense needs. The hottest issue in the just-concluded fiscal 1990 defense authorization conference was whether to cancel the Navy's Long...

The K-36D is standard equipment in Russian high-performance aircraft, being rated for survivable ejections at speeds of 0-755 KEAS. In 1993, a Foreign Comparative Testing (FCT) Program was initiated to evaluate the Soviet designed K-36D ejection seat. The objectives of this program were to increase USAFIUSN knowledge...

This report brings together many different aspects of Gauss elimination. The basic Gauss elimination (GE) algorithm is a fundamental tool of linear algebra computation for solving systems, computing determinants and determining the rank of matrix. All of these are discussed in varying contexts. These include different arithmetic or algebraic setting such as integer arithmetic or polynomial rings as well as conventional real (floating-point) arithmetic. These have effects on both accuracy and...

The old world order of a known enemy and predictable arena of battle, with an existing support structure and facilities, is gone. Gone also are adequate defense budgets and automatic advances in weapon systems to assure the fielding of cutting-edge technologies. Potential adversaries in the new world order are many and unpredictable, and the research and development efforts of both the former eastern and western superpowers are being used to upgrade the air forces of nations around the world,...

Bluff shaped bombs are of interest as an internally carried munition because they package well in internal bays and can be delivered throughout the flight envelope of the carriage aircraft. A proposal was made to develop bluff bombs through use of adapter kits consisting of nose and tail castings to convert inventory warheads to bluff shapes. It was further proposed to modify an F-111 weapons bay to carry five such bluff bombs based on the M117 warhead. A program was established to develop and...
